Blackjack Essential Basics – Part Two

We resume our article on the essential details of black jack. In Part One we covered the notion of the game, taking another card, standing and how to double down. In part two we will discuss splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a gambler is assigned two cards of the same value (2 8’s for example) he may split them to create two separate hands. If you decide to separate your hand you will have to place a new wager equal to the initial wager.

Surrender: Some casinos will allow gamblers to surrender the hand they have been given along with fifty percent of the initial bet they made before the croupier checks his hand. Keep in mind it is essential to ask the croupier for clarification on the table game rules or check the rules section on the web betting house you are playing on.

Insurance: When the dealers face up card is an Ace individuals have the chance to take out insurance. You will place half of the initial bet prior to the dealer looking at his cards; if the dealer has blackjack you’ll win the insurance bet but still lose the original wager. Sadly if the dealer does not have blackjack the competitor loses the insurance. It’s a chance but one that’s absolutely worth it, if used as part of a smart tactic.

Once a gambler has stayed or busted by going over twenty one the dealer will show their cards and will go on to deal themselves cards until 1 of the following things has happened: if he has achieved seventeen, a croupier will not usually draw another card due to the chance of busting, if he has drawn twenty one or if he has busted.
