A,2 Double on 5,6. A,4 Double on 4 to 6. Stand on Stand on 7,10 or A. It is imperative as a blackjack player to learn this basic strategy, because by using it, you will eliminate the normal 5 or so percent advantage the casino has over the unskilled player. This game also has a coaching option where it will tell you what decision to make based on basic strategy. Basic strategy varies according to the type of playing conditions that you are exposed to. Hit on A. The best commercial version that I have found is called "Play to Win" by Wizard Works, and it is available now in any major computer software supply store. Hit on 10, A. Otherwise hit. The charts below should be self explanatory. You can also play online for free here on Blackjack Center via the link found above. Always hit.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} The above multiple deck basic strategy is valid if the players are allowed to double down after pair splitting. If doubling down is not allowed after pair splitting, then use the following pair splitting rules. But always remember, even the most skilled card counter will still use basic strategy for the vast majority of his or her playing decisions. Regardless on what you use to practice, whether it be a computer blackjack game or simply a deck of cards, you MUST learn basic strategy to have any hope of being a consistent winner at the blackjack tables. A,7 Double on 3 to 6. Your Hand vs Dealer's Upcard 2,2 Split on 2 to 7. Basic strategy was created by using a computer simulation of millions of blackjack hands. A,5 Double on 4 to 6. Below I have listed the basic strategy rules for single deck games and for multiple deck shoes. A,A Always split. If the casino allows doubling down after pair splitting then use the following pair splitting rules. This is why blackjack can be one of the most profitable games to play in a casino. The above chart assumes the casino doesn't allow doubling down after pair splitting. Hit on 9 or A,8 Double on 6. On the left hand column is the total of the cards you have in your hand and the proper playing strategy based on the dealers up card. Basically, these computer simulations showed the mathematical probability of improving the blackjack hand or beating the dealer, by a certain playing strategy. Otherwise stand. There are many inexpensive blackjack games which you can buy for your PC, and several shareware ones which you can easily obtain off of the internet. With basic strategy the house advantage is only about 0. In fact, if you attempt to make a wrong decision a dialog box will pop up and suggest to you the proper playing decision to make. Stand on 2,7 or 8. So I urge you to study the rules below and practice them until they do not require any thought on your part. I will explain this in more detail under the card counting section of this web site. A,3 Double on 5,6. You may think that you lose more often than you win in certain basic strategy situations, but this is NOT the case over the long run. Hit on 9,10 or A. In other words, telling the blackjack player what action he or she should take hit, split, double-down, etc. Do NOT alter your play based on some hunch that you have, or by a perceived idea that you always lose when you split eights for example. Treat as 10 above. A,6 Double on 2 to 6. A,9 Always stand. A,6 Double on 3 to 6. The only time you should vary from basic strategy is under certain circumstances where you are counting cards. A,2 to A,5 Double on 4 to 6. Your Hand vs Dealer's Upcard 2,2 Split on 4 to 7. Stand on 7,10, or A. The important thing to remember is that nearly all basic strategy rules are indisputable in the long run, the finite nature of mathematical science dictates that a particular playing decision, based on the player's cards and the dealer's exposed card, will yield a predictable outcome after millions of hands of play. Another fact that I must stress is to play exactly the way listed below. Stand on 2,7,8 or A. A,8 to A,10 Always stand. That is less than a 1 percent disadvantage to the player. Namely, how many decks that are in the shoe you are playing. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}The most important thing to learn about playing blackjack, and I can not stress this enough, is to learn basic strategy.
