What not to do in blackjack
You stop when you run out of money, or when the excitement of the next bet wears off. A good rule of thumb is that if you are at a casino more than two hours a day, you’re losing money.
What cards should you never split in blackjack?
There are some instances where you should never ever split a card in blackjack, especially if you are playing for real money.First, never split a ten-value card in blackjack. In general, the ten-value card ranks as the worst hand in blackjack because it is the highest-ranking card that is worth 10 points, while most other cards range from 2 to 10 points. Therefore, it is best to avoid splitting this card.Second, never split a one-value card in blackjack. This is because one-value cards are often referred to as ‘holecards’. One-value cards include all 10s and the ace. Therefore, if you get two one-value cards, then both of them will be used as holecards and you will likely lose the hand. In addition, one-value cards can be very deceptive and may reveal another player’s holecard, so it’s not worth risking your real money on this hand.Finally, never split a face card (King or less) in blackjack. Face cards are worth 10 points each and are typically the best starting hands in blackjack. Therefore, splitting any face card will result in a lower payout for that particular hand. If you must split a face card, then at least do so with another face card (i.e., two face cards represent aces).
What should you not hit in blackjack?
Aces are always good, and the higher the value, the better. Even a high number counts more.It is a bad idea to hit on any face value of a five or higher. It is also a bad idea to hit on any ten of any suit.If you hit on a ten, tap your foot to the beat of your heart.Speeding up the dealer is always a good thing, but not in blackjack. You can speed up your table but only if you are winning. The dealer does not care about how fast you play, only how well you play blackjack.
