Blackjack Basics – Part Two

[ English ]

We resume our article on the basics of black jack. In Part 1 we covered the basis of the game, taking another card, holding with the current hand and how to double down. In part two we’ll discuss splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a player is given two cards of the same value (two 8’s for example) the gambler may split them to make two separate hands. If you choose to separate your hand you’ll have to place a new bet equal to the initial wager.

Surrender: Some betting houses will permit players to surrender the cards they have been handed along with half of the initial bet they made before the dealer looking at their hand. Once again it’s vital to inquire with the dealer for clarification on the table rules or look at the game rules area on the net betting house you’re gambling on.

Insurance: When the croupiers face up card is an Ace individuals have the chance to purchase insurance. You will lay half of the original bet prior to the croupier checking his cards; if the dealer has black jack you will come away with a win on the insurance wager but still lose the original wager. Sadly if the dealer doesn’t have black jack the gambler loses the insurance. It’s a risk but one that is well worth it, if used as part of a smart tactic.

Once a competitor has stood or busted by going over twenty-one the croupier will reveal his or her cards and will go on to deal themselves cards until 1 of the following events has appeared: if he has surpassed seventeen, a croupier won’t typically draw another card because of the possibility of busting, if they have drawn twenty one or if they have busted.
