Blackjack Essential Basics – Part Two

We carry on with our article on the essential details of Blackjack. In Part One we reviewed the concept of twenty-one, taking another card, standing and how to double down. In part 2 we will talk about splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a gambler is handed two cards of the same amount (2 eights as an example) he may break them up to create 2 different hands. If you choose to split your hand you will need to make a new bet equal to the original wager.

Surrender: Some casinos will let players to surrender the cards they have been handed along with fifty percent of the initial wager they made prior to the croupier checking his hand. As a rule it is important to inquire with the dealer for clarification on the twenty-one table game rules or check the game rules area on the web casino you’re gambling on.

Insurance: When the croupiers face up card is an Ace competitors have the ability to take out insurance. You’ll place half of the initial bet before the dealer looks at his cards; if the croupier has black jack you’ll come away with a win on the insurance bet but still lose the original amount. Sadly if the croupier does not have twenty-one the competitor loses the insurance. It is a chance but one that is well worth it, if used as part of a smart plan.

Once a gambler has stood or busted by going over twenty one the dealer will show his/her cards and will go on to deal themselves cards until one of the following events has appeared: if he has reached seventeen, a dealer won’t typically draw another card because of the chance of going bust, if he has drawn 21 or if he has gone bust.
