Following is a list of some common rule variations and the effect on the player's expected return compared to standard U. Insurance wagers are optional and may not exceed half the original wager. On This Page. Then, the player may hit, stand, or double normally. In my opinion, only games that pay 3 to 2 deserve to be called "blackjack," the rest fall under "21" games, including Super Fun 21 and Spanish Regardless of the other rules, you should demand nothing less than 3 to 2 blackjack. Don't show this again. At some tables, the dealer will also hit a soft If the dealer goes over 21 points, then any player who didn't already bust will win. A reader named Jeff provided another table of my simple strategy, with exceptions in small print. In my book, Gambling , I presented a "Simple Strategy," which is seven simple rules to playing blackjack. You should always check the felt to be sure, and if the felt doesn't say, look for a sign. Practice Basis Strategy. If the dealer does have a blackjack, then all wagers except insurance will lose, unless the player also has a blackjack, which will result in a push. Blackjack Introduction Rules I overhear a lot of bad gambling advice in the casinos. Featured Games. Assume a ten in the hole: For this strategy I first figured out the optimal basic strategy under this assumption. Ever since my book was published it has bothered me that the cost in errors to my Simple Strategy was too high. The following are the choices available to the player: Stand : Player stands pat with his cards. After the players have bet, the dealer will give two cards to each player and two cards to himself. However, when splitting aces, each ace gets only one card. Aces may be counted as 1 or 11 points, 2 to 9 according to pip value, and tens and face cards count as ten points. So in September I developed the following "Wizard's Strategy. Here are the full rules of the game. Usually the player may keep re-splitting up to a total of four hands. Double : Player doubles his bet and gets one, and only one, more card. Compared to the cells in the Basic Strategy, the Wizard's Strategy has only 21, as follows. That is the cost of one hand for about every 12 hours of play. Sign Up. The Wizard of Odds Search. Except, a "blackjack" is the highest hand, consisting of an ace and any point card, and it outranks all other point hands. If this card causes the player's total points to exceed 21 known as "breaking" or "busting" then he loses. If the player gets a ten and ace after splitting, then it counts as 21 points, not a blackjack. Blackjack may be played with one to eight decks of card decks. The value of a hand is the sum of the point values of the individual cards. To beat the dealer the player must first not bust go over 21 and second either outscore the dealer or have the dealer bust. If you want to learn a strategy that is correct all the time you should use the appropriate basic strategy for the set of rules you are playing. For example, my simple strategy says to stand on 12 against a 2, when it is mathematically better to hit. A special situation is when the dealer has an ace and any number of cards totaling six points known as a "soft 17". One of the dealer cards is dealt face up. More and more tables are showing up that pay less than the full 3 to 2 on a blackjack. Rule Variations Rule Effect Single deck 0. Following are my specific comments on each of them, including the house edge under Atlantic City rules dealer stands on soft 17, split up to 4 hands, double after split, double any two cards of 0.

Split : If the player has a pair, or any two point cards, then he may double his bet and separate his cards into two individual hands. Mimic the dealer: For my analysis of this strategy I assumed the player would always hit 16 or less and stand on17 or more, including a soft The player never doubled or split, since the dealer is not allowed to do so. The cost due to incorrect plays with the Simple Strategy is 0. If the dealer had an ace up, then I reverted to proper basic strategy, because the dealer would have peeked for blackjack, making a 10 impossible. I've been preaching for years that to play blackjack properly requires memorizing the basic strategy. Three popular bad strategies encountered at the blackjack table are: never bust, mimic the dealer, and always assume the dealer has a ten in the hole.

Practice Card Counting.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} This option is only available on the initial two cards, and depending on casino rules, sometimes it is not allowed at all.

All three are very bad strategies. Sometimes re-splitting aces is not allowed. Perhaps the most frequent is this one, "The object of blackjack is to get as close to 21 as possible, without going over. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}I overhear a lot of bad gambling advice in the casinos.

If the dealer has a ten or an ace showing after offering insurance with an ace showing , then he will peek at his facedown card to see if he has a blackjack. If the dealer has 16 or less, then he will draw another card. Winning wagers pay even money, except a winning player blackjack usually pays 3 to 2. The dealer will automatically give each card a second card. If he does, then he will turn it over immediately.
