In blackjack, the only thing that players need to pay attention to is how to win the dealer. If you are new to the game, it is best to understand some basic strategies first. The most important thing is to take the money into consideration when is the timing of hit, stand, split and double.
The strategies in the blackjack game are basic common sense and some knowledge of probability; if the player’s card is between 5-16, he should continue to take the card; if it is 17-21, he should stand the card. However, when you take into account split and double, the game becomes a little complicated. If you have two same cards, splits are a good choice, but also consider the dealer cards in hand. According to the dealer’s board card, the dealer’s second card can be divided into two categories: cards that may make the dealer bust or make the dealer win.
If the dealer shows 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6, the dealer may bust. 5 and 6 are the most likely to cause the dealer to bust. Players don’t have to take a lot of risk to get close to blackjack as long as they don’t bust themselves.
If the dealer shows 7 or higher, there is a high chance that the dealer will have a good hand(18, 19, 20 or 21). If a player’s hand is less than 18, the dealer may be aggressive and risk busting by bidding another card to get a good hand.
Therefore, there are four simple rules for deciding when to hit and stand:
- If the player’s hand is less than or equal to 11 that bidding is definitely correct. Because bidding another card, the player will not bust, it will only get benefit.
- If the card in the player’s hand is greater than or equal to 17, and the dealer’s card is less than or equal to 7, it is definitely right to stand the card. There is a high risk of busting by continuing to bid.
- The cards in the player’s hand are from 12 to 16, and the dealer’s board card shows that it may bust, so it is definitely right for the player to stand the card at this time. If the dealer busts, the player still wins.
- Exception: If the dealer shows 2 or 3 and yours is 12, please continue to bid. If your hand is 12 to 16 and the dealer shows a board card of 7 or more, you can continue to bid. If the player does not continue to bid, the dealer’s hand will most likely be better than your hand. While there is a possibility of busting, you have no choice in this situation.
While the basic strategy of blackjack can become extremely complex, these four rules are still the heart of most strategies in use today.
