We carry on with our article on the basics of twenty-one. In the previous article we reviewed the approach of the game, hitting, holding with the current hand and how to double down. In part 2 we’ll discuss splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a gambler is dealt 2 cards of the same value (two 8’s as an example) he may split them to create 2 separate hands. If you choose to separate your hand you will need to place a new bet equivalent to the initial wager.

Surrender: A few casinos will allow players to surrender the cards they have been dealt along with fifty percent of the original bet they made prior to the croupier checking his hand. Once again it is essential to inquire with the croupier for clarification on the twenty-one table rules or check out the game rules section on the internet casino you’re playing on.

Insurance: When the dealers face up card is an Ace competitors have the option to take out insurance. You’ll place half of the original bet prior to the croupier checking his cards; if the croupier has chemin de fer you will win the insurance bet but still lose the original amount. Sadly if the dealer does not have blackjack the competitor loses the insurance. It’s a chance but one that’s well worth it, if used as part of a smart plan.

Once a player has stayed or gone bust by exceeding 21 the croupier will reveal his or her hand and will go on to deal himself cards until 1 of the following elements has happened: if he has surpassed seventeen, a croupier won’t typically draw another card due to the likelihood of going bust, if he has drawn 21 or if they have busted.
