Blackjack assume dealer has 10
Assume dealer has 10. Then the expected value (EV) of blackjack is as follows:Expected win: 10 (red) + 0.20 (green) = 20Expected loss: 10 (black) – 0.20 (black) = -10Even though I expected to lose, it was more enjoyable watching you getting tens and ignoring my advice!
Does the dealer check a 10 in blackjack?
The theory is that a ten is an ‘overs’ card, which should win in most cases. The dealer may check a 10 in blackjack to see if you have a strong hand, to see if you’re bluffing.A dealer may check a ten if your hand is:- An ace high or low- A three of a kind- A two pair- A straight (10 through Ace)- A flush (any suit)- A full house or better (two pair with another combination)
Is the dealers ace always 11?
No, the dealers ace is not always 11. In some circumstances, it can be as low as 10 or as high as 12. If you are playing pot-limit Omaha, for example, the ace is not worth as much in someone’s chip count because there are so many hands that can beat the ace.When you are playing heads-up in Omaha, however, you need to start paying more attention to your pair of aces than the other players’ aces. Heads-up players are not likely to fold their pair of aces with inferior cards on the table, but they also do not put as much pressure on you to make a big bluff with your hand. Heads-up players are more likely to call with a nut flush draw than with many other types of draws.The best way to maximize your chances of winning at heads-up in Omaha is to play fairly tight and try not to be surprised by your opponents’ cards. This can give you an edge if all of your opponents have closed their stacks and are playing very passive all-in poker.
