We carry on with our article on the basics of Blackjack. In Part 1 we covered the basis of the game, hitting, standing and how to double down. In part 2 we will talk about splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a gambler is handed two cards of the same amount (2 8’s for instance) the gambler may break them up to generate 2 separate hands. If you decide to separate your hand you will need to make a new wager equal to the original bet.

Surrender: A few betting houses will allow individuals to surrender the hand they have been given along with half of the original wager they placed prior to the dealer checking their hand. As a rule it is essential to ask the dealer for clarification on the table game rules or check out the rules area on the internet betting house you are competing 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 initial bet prior to the croupier checking his cards; if the dealer has black jack you’ll win the insurance bet but still lose the initial sum. Sadly if the croupier does not have black jack the player loses the insurance. It’s a chance but one that’s well worth it, if used as part of a smart scheme.

Once a competitor has stayed or gone bust by exceeding 21 the dealer will show his or her hand and will continue to deal himself cards until one of the following things has appeared: if they have achieved seventeen, a dealer will not typically draw another card because of the possibility of busting, if he has drawn 21 or if he has gone bust.
