Blackjack Tips

The following is a short-listing of quick blackjack tips. These tips are meant as a supplement to basic blackjack strategy. Follow these blackjack tips for some general blackjack guidelines and a bit of advice from experienced blackjack players.

  • Always split 7’s against a dealer’s card of equal or lower value.
  • Always split 2’s or 3’s against a 4, 5, or 6.
  • Always split Aces and 8’s, no matter what the dealer’s up card is.
  • Never split face cards, 10’s, or 5’s.
  • Always stand on hard 17 or higher
  • If the dealer has a 10, hit until you have 17 or higher.
  • Hit a soft 17 against a dealer’s 10.
  • If allowed, surrender hard 15 against a dealer’s 10, and 16 (but not a pair of 8’s) against a dealer’s 9, 10 or Ace.
  • Never take insurance unless you are counting cards
  • Keep your emotions under control.
  • The dealer is only the messenger, don’t take you’re losses out on him.
  • Don’t blame other players. If players at the table are upsetting you with their playing strategies, you can always move.
  • Study the last man at your blackjack table; if he seems inexperienced or desperate, move on.
  • Losing your money isn’t worth the price of a free drink.
  • Set loss limits and win goals.
  • It is always to your advantage to play on a game that offers the fewest decks. The house edge goes up substantially when you go from one deck to two, but the change is less dramatic as you add more decks.
  • Look for the following combination of rules that are favorable to the player:
  • single deck game
  • surrender, both early and late
  • double down allowed on any two cards
  • double down allowed after splitting pairs
  • multiple pair splitting allowed
  • resplitting aces allowed
  • dealer stands on a soft 17
  • deep deck penetration
