Tips for Playing Classic Blackjack

Playing a Pair of Tens - When you have been dealt a pair of Tens or a pair of Ten valued cards, then you need to Stand this kind of hand at all times.

Doubling Down a Hand - When you have a pair of fives, and the dealer has a 2 to 9 valued card showing, then double down this hand. Also, whenever you have a 10’s valued hand then double down unless the dealer is showing a 10 or an Ace, in which case you need to Hit your hand.

Another type of hand you should double down on is a 10 or 11 valued hand, but only double down when the dealers card is a 2 to 9 valued card, any other dealers card will call for you to hit your hand.

Splitting a Pair of Two’s - When you have been dealt a pair of 2’s, then only two betting moves should be made, depending on what the dealer is showing. You should hit your hand whenever the dealer has an eight upto an Ace valued card, and Split the 2’s when the dealer has a 2 to 7 valued card.

Playing a Soft 17 Hand - There is only one way you should play soft 17 hands. Any hand valued as a soft 17 should be Hit.

When dealt all soft 13’s to soft 16’s then you should Hit them also, along with hitting any soft 18 when the dealers up card is either a 9 or a 10. If you have a soft 18 and the dealer is showing any other card then you should Stand that hand.
