What’s Your Strategy When Playing BlackJack?

Do you have an basic, intermediate, or advanced strategy for playing BlackJack? Or when you play is it just strictly based on luck?

Blackjack is one of the few games where you can have an active role in determining the outcome.

Here’s some strategies to use:

1) Basic – using a mathematically proven formula indicating the best decision you can make in any situation like: hit, stand, double, split, or surrender.

2) Intermediate Strategy – learning how to wager in a way that could increase your winnings over the course of many hands.

3) Advanced Strategy – learning how to take advantage of profitable situations by placing large wagers on hands you are more likely to win.

Here’s are some easy plays to remember:

  1. “Hit” on card values up to 9 and “stand” on card values of 17 or higher, if neither are an Ace.

  2. If card values are between 12-16. It’s time to check the dealer’s up-card, “Stand” if it is a 6 or lower value card and “hit” if it is  7 or higher.

  3. “Double down” if you have a 10 or 11 and it’s higher than the dealer’s card.

  4. “Split” it if you have pairs: 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 and the dealer’s up-card is 6 or lower.

  5. “Split” it if you have pairs of 8 or 9 and dealer’s up-card is 9, but never “split” if the dealer’s up-cared is 10!
