Twenty-One Basics – Part Two

We resume our article on the essential details of black jack. In Part 1 we covered the approach of blackjack, hitting, holding with the current hand and how to double down. In part 2 we will talk about splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a gambler is assigned 2 cards of the same value (two 8’s for example) the gambler may separate them to create 2 separate hands. If you choose to separate your hand you will need to place a new bet equivalent to the original bet.

Surrender: A few betting houses will permit players to surrender the hand they have been handed along with fifty percent of the original wager they made prior to the croupier looking at his hand. Once again it’s vital to ask the croupier for clarification on the black jack table rules or check the rules area on the online casino you are betting on.

Insurance: When the croupiers exposed card is an Ace competitors have the chance to take out insurance. You’ll place half of the initial wager before the dealer checks his cards; if the dealer has chemin de fer you will come away with a win on the insurance bet but still lose the initial amount. Sadly if the dealer doesn’t have blackjack the gambler loses the insurance. It is a chance but one that’s absolutely worth it, if used as part of a smart scheme.

As soon as a competitor has stood or gone bust by exceeding twenty one the dealer will reveal his or her hand and will go on to deal himself cards until one of the following events has happened: if they have achieved 17, a croupier won’t usually take another card because of the possibility of busting, if they have drawn twenty one or if he has busted.
