We resume our article on the basics of Blackjack. In the last article we covered the approach of the game, hitting, standing and how to double down. In part two we’ll discuss splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a player is dealt two cards of the same value (two eights as an example) the player may break them up to make 2 separate hands. If you decide to separate your hand you will have to make a new bet equal to the initial bet.

Surrender: Some casinos will allow players to surrender the cards they have been given along with fifty percent of the initial bet they made prior to the croupier checking their hand. Keep in mind it is important to inquire with the dealer for clarification on the chemin de fer table rules or check out the game rules section on the internet casino you are competing on.

Insurance: When the dealers exposed card is an Ace players have the option to take out insurance. You will lay half of the original wager before the dealer looks at his cards; if the dealer has blackjack you will come away with a win on the insurance wager but still lose the original wager. Regrettably if the croupier does not have black jack the gambler loses the insurance. It is a chance but one that is well worth it, if used as part of a smart scheme.

As soon as a competitor has stayed or busted by exceeding 21 the dealer will reveal his cards and will go on to deal himself cards until 1 of the following events has happened: if they have achieved seventeen, a croupier won’t normally take another card because of the chance of going bust, if they have drawn twenty one or if he has busted.
