Along with poker, blackjack is one of the most popular card games in the world. You can visit every casino in the world, and they will all have at least one blackjack table. Like any card game, to win at blackjack requires an incredible amount of luck. However, some scientific methods and strategies may increase one’s chances. Let’s look at some of them.
Split 8s: Blackjack experts also recommend splitting two 8s first because we all know 16 to be the absolute worst hand in blackjack. Splitting the 8s creates a bigger chance of getting a better hand than 16. It also means there is a bigger chance of getting to 21.
Don’t split 10s: As opposed to 16, 20 is one of the best-valued hands you can have. The only way the dealer can win is if he gets 21. As far as odds go, the game is yours. Splitting 10s lowers your odds of winning dramatically than if you keep both 10s.
Time the double down: There’s a rule that states when you get a count of 11, and the dealer has a 10 or an ace, double down. And the pattern continues downward. If you get a 10 and the dealer has a 9 or less, double down. If you get a 9 and the dealer has an 8 or less, double down. Always remember this tip.
