Blackjack dealer has ace showing
Blackjack is a very popular casino game. It is a two-player game that involves betting and card playing. When playing blackjack, the player and the dealer each have cards face up and some information about the cards remaining in the deck is provided to them. The player has an advantage because he or she can see more information about the cards remaining in the deck than the dealer sees. The first player to reach 21 points without going over wins the hand.In blackjack, each player has an ace showing with which they can make a high hand or a low hand. A high hand is achieved by having an ace and any other face value card with an appropriate value placed together (for example, 10 and 2 for ten, or 8 and 4 for twenty). A low hand is achieved by having an ace and any other face value card with values other than ten (for example, 5 with 7 or 6 with 2).If the dealer’s up card is an ace they are allowed to hold it as long as they want before discarding it (sometimes called drawing to eleven). This means that if they draw to eleven that suit will not be declared dead in their favour even if the next card dealt will be a ten.
Does dealer in blackjack always have to stop on a soft ace?
No.The following is from the Rakeback website, who have done quite a bit of research on this topic:- In general, your best hand should always be played until you can no longer afford to do so.- If your hand is not as good as you think it is, it’s better to play it and lose than to hold back and risk a larger loss.- The only time you should ‘stop playing your hand’ is when it reaches a point where you can no damage (or at least where the probability of rupture is very high). It’s at this point that you stop playing. When trying to figure out whether to continue or stop, think about the following: given that someone has bet more money than he could possibly win with his current hand (because he thinks his hand cannot beat the dealer’s 20), which is the more likely: that that he either has 20 or at least a very good 10 (or better) hand, or that he doesn’t have such a good hand? If the answer is that he doesn’t have such a good hand, then it would be better to keep on playing because if you win the round you’ll get more money than if you lose the round (and if you win the game). If on the other hand, you think he has such a bad hand that he probably has 2 or 3 cards less than necessary for beating the dealer’s 20, then it would be better to stop playing because if you win the round you’ll still get more money than if you lose. Note that WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT A MULTI-ROUND SITUATION HERE; we are talking about a single round where everyone plays their best hand. When we are talking about multi-round situations (in which one never knows when someone could go all in or when someone could make a mistake), the situation changes. In those cases, one should try to figure out whether one could beat his opponent without any more bets by analysing his hole cards while not allowing any more bets thus avoiding risking too much money by betting all of it).
Do you hit when dealer is showing an ace?
