Blackjack Basics – Part Two

Written by Madalynn. No comments Posted in: Blackjack

We continue with our article on the essential details of twenty-one. In Part 1 we covered the approach of the game, taking another card, standing and how to double down. In part 2 we will discuss splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a player is handed 2 cards of the same value (two eights as an example) he may split them to create two different hands. If you choose to split your hand you’ll have to place a new wager equivalent to the initial bet.

Surrender: Some betting houses will let players to surrender the cards they have been handed along with fifty percent of the original wager they placed prior to the dealer checking their hand. Keep in mind it is essential to ask the croupier for clarification on the table game rules or look at the rules area on the internet betting house you are gambling on.

Insurance: When the dealers face up card is an Ace individuals have the option to purchase insurance. You will lay half of the original wager prior to the dealer looking at his cards; if the croupier has blackjack you will come away with a win on the insurance bet but still lose the original wager. Sadly if the dealer does not have twenty-one the player loses the insurance. It is a risk but one that’s well worth it, if used as part of a smart scheme.

Once a competitor has stayed or gone bust by going over 21 the croupier will reveal his cards and will go on to deal himself cards until one of the following things has appeared: if they have reached 17, a croupier won’t normally take another card because of the possibility of going bust, if he has drawn twenty-one or if they have gone bust.
