The basic idea behind the game is to beat the dealer so that the player would win money at the end of the game. But in order to do so, the player must have a reliable strategy. Making use of the basic blackjack strategy card and learning when to stop hitting when you have a good hand would be beneficial in doubling one’s chances in beating the dealer. There are also many other blackjack strategies which can be used to beat the dealer such as the assurance when to double down, the surrender strategy, the insurance strategy, splitting and rebalancing, and a few other strategies.
When making use of the Basic Strategy Card, the player would know when to hit and when to stand. Whenever the player is having a 16 or a 15 hand, the player could stand. The strategy card would prompt the player when to double down, split, double down after split, take insurance, surrender, and to stand. Doubling down is when the player doubled the bet after initial two cards. This is only applicable in cases where the first two cards are equal. Double down after split is applicable if the player has two cards of the same value. Placing insurance is the same. If the player received a hand with three of a kind, he/she would ask for insurance. This is to protect the player against the possible loss of two of his/her pocket cards. The player can surrender to the dealer if he/she feels that the dealer has a strong hand.
The player can also use the surrender option to get half of his/her bet if the dealer has a five card (two of spades, two of hearts, two of clubs, and ace) or six card (ace, king, queen, jack) combination. However, the player would lose half of his bet if the dealer has a seven through ace hand. There are many other combinations of cards which could be used as well in blackjack.
The insurance option is the last step in dewalive. This option is offered to players whenever the dealer has an ace. If the player believes that the dealer has a strong hand and the cards to be equally distributed, the player can choose to surrender. However, the player would lose his bet if the dealer has a ten card or an ace. If the player wins, he would get one half of his bet back. This is the only option that can be chosen.
Blackjack is a game which can be learned in a few minutes and one has almost no time to waste. One can play blackjack while sitting at home and it would not take any effort at all. The game is usually played at a fast pace, and the players have to remember very little about the game. However, the more one plays, the more he/she starts to play the colors more rapidly. When a player is asked to leave a particular table, he/she must ask for a drink and a chair. It is unfair to other players and to the dealer if a player is causing trouble by getting up and leaving the table.
