What is known as basic strategy of blackjack is the result of mathematical calculations on the probability and, depending on the dealer’s up card, we suggest whether they should pull another card, stop, double or possibly split the two cards. There are small variations in basic strategy, depends on which variant you are playing blackjack. A good starting point is to remember these few rules:

  • Calculate the sum of your two cards and see the dealer’s hand
  • If you have ever pulled a total of 8 or less
  • Stop always on hard 17 (see below)
  • Stop always of 19 soft (see below)
  • If the dealer has 2 or 3, you have to pull until you reach 13 or more.
  • If the dealer has 4, 5 or 6 pull up to 12 or more.
  • If the dealer has 7, 8, 9, 10 or ace you must pull at least a value of 17.

Total Score Hard

It has to do with a total score hard when the two cards that have been distributed there is an ace that counts 11. It is so to say, the normal situation where the two cards are added to their real value.

Score Total Soft

It has to do with a soft point total when you receive an ace and another card and the value of the ace is counted as 11. If for example you have an ace and a 6 you get is called a soft 17.

Separate the pairs

When you receive two cards of the same value you can put a bet on the counter equal to the initial and separate the cards by playing two different hands. But as you see below in some cases this is totally not recommended.
