Can you split a 10 and queen in blackjack?
Yes, you can split a 10 and queen in blackjack. In blackjack, the player is dealt a hand of 11 cards. The hand contains one face card, ten cards numbered 2 through 10 and one ’10’ spot card. The player may split their hand into two separate hands by doubling up on any of their cards.In blackjack, the player may expose their first hand and draw additional cards from the dealer if they believe that a 10 (ten) can be split to produce a 19 (even better) hand. The player may continue to draw additional cards from the dealer until they have either drawn all of their original 21-card hand or have achieved a total of 25 or more in the first hand.If a player achieves this total, they are entitled to surrender the remainder of the first hand after splitting it into two separate hands. In this case, the entire contents of the second hand are substituted into the first while keeping all winnings accumulated to that point (either by splitting or by doubling up on cards). Of course, there may be some scenarios where this is not possible or beneficial.’

What cards should you never split in blackjack?
You should never split a Blackjack if you are losing badly. The only situation in which you would want to split is if you are ahead by two or more units.When you are up two units, it would be much wiser to stay and play out your hand. If you agree to split, then receive two new cards and the Dealer shows a 10, then the remaining count stands at 8 (your original hand). As the Dealer has 10, this effectively gives you 11 (blackjack + one more card) and so there is no real need to split. If you do split, then on fifth card your total count stands at 3 (2 + 1), which is only 13 units ahead. So splitting becomes quite a risky decision and can easily backfire.
