6 Advanced Blackjack Strategy Ep.2 Game Introduction
Finally, the second part of the remaining three advanced blackjack strategies has come. I hope you all understand the game better once you’ve read through the entire article. Now let’s get into it and see if we can increase our win rate and boost our confidence while playing the game using these strategies.
Advanced Blackjack Strategy 4: sum 12 vs face-up 6!
Now let’s look at the controversial part of the fourth strategy. It’s between the sum points of 12 in our hand and the face-up 6 points in the house’s hand. Here is where the players usually get it wrong.
First of all, let me ask you this, which side of the advantage was among the top two scenarios?
The answer is the player’s side. I know a lot of you may think it’s the opposite since 12 points is an awkward situation that the player wasn’t sure if they want to hit or not.
A lot may be worried that if they go hit and get a face card, then their hand would go bust. Though let’s take a look at the full picture here.
Now, we all know that the house may only stand while they hit above 17 points, but we as players get to choose to hit or stand, so it’s already in our favor.
What’s more, think if you are the house and you get 6 points only. If you hit a face card, then you are 16, which is required to hit according to the rules. Since it’s easier for 16 to go bust than 12, then point 12 must be in favor.
So whenever you are at the table and you get 12 points, always stand. Let the house go bust but not you.
Advanced Blackjack Strategy 5: Splitting the face card pairs.
Here comes another common misunderstanding: should we split the face card pairs? There might be tons of different aspects and analyses from all the players who played blackjack. Though according to the pros, we maintain. Never split a pair with face cards.
It’s simple. This game requires us to get as close to point 21 as possible. Since the point of two face cards is 20.
which is only 1 point short of 21, it’s a considerably strong hand already.
Also, the reason why we split is that we want to break the points that are at our disadvantage when we are facing the house, or when we can go for a double win.
It won’t make sense to our hand if we split a face card pair since the only stronger condition we can get is blackjack for each one of them, which is very rare.
Hence, we avoid the possibility of downgrading our hands and keeping our strength within the game. Therefore, never split a face card pair.
Advanced Blackjack Strategy 6: 17!
The last strategy we are introducing has to do with the number 17. 17, as the sum of a hand, is quite a medium point.
You are all familiar with the strategy we mentioned last time about the 7-point in-house hand strategy, so you know how important this number is. Now the question is, will you hit when your hand already reaches 17?
Some may say: hell no, my hand is strong enough. Though we have to take the strength of the house’s hand into consideration as well.
In theory, we do prefer to stand when we hit 17, though if the face-up card of the house indicates that there’s a high chance we are behind, then we need to take our chances.
So the last strategy wasn’t about forbidding you to hit while you got 17, it suggest that we take actions according to different scenarios.
That’s all for today. We all know that blackjack is a game of range. Since it’s adjustable in hand for players compared to other types of games, there are plenty of different kinds of reasons for players to take certain actions.
I sincerely hope that your win rate may rise after reading our articles. Wish you a nice day and I will see you next time.
