Why do you never split 10s in blackjack?
I never split 10s in blackjack because it is a bad move (low expected value) and there is no need for it.If you are dealt 10s, then assuming you have a hand worth at least 10-20, you are very likely to win the hand (in more than 99% of the cases). If you do not think that you will win the hand then there is no need to split the 10s as you will lose less value (from your bet) and if you lose, then your win ratio will be lower.If your overall expectation is not so high then splitting 10s can lead to a significant loses and in this case, it is almost always better to ignore it.
