• Black Jack ABC’s – Part Two

    We continue with our article on the abc’s of twenty-one. In the preceding article we covered the basis of twenty-one, taking another card, standing and how to double down. In part two we will discuss splitting, surrendering and insurance.

    Split: if a player is dealt 2 cards of the same amount (two eights for instance) the player may break them up to make 2 separate hands. If you choose to split your hand you will have to lay a new wager equal to the original bet.

    Surrender: A few betting houses will let players to surrender the cards they have been handed along with half of the initial bet they placed prior to the dealer looking at their hand. As a rule it’s essential to ask the croupier for clarification on the blackjack table game rules or check out the rules section on the web casino you’re gambling on.

    Insurance: When the croupiers face up card is an Ace gamblers have the chance to purchase insurance. You will place half of the initial bet before the dealer looks at his cards; if the croupier has black jack you will win the insurance bet but still lose the initial amount. Regrettably if the croupier doesn’t have chemin de fer the competitor loses the insurance. It is a risk but one that is well worth it, if used as part of a smart strategy.

    As soon as a gambler has stayed or busted by exceeding twenty one the dealer will reveal his/her hand and will go on to deal himself cards until one of the following events has appeared: if he has reached 17, a croupier will not typically draw another card because of the likelihood of going bust, if he has drawn 21 or if he has gone bust.
