Blackjack Card Game Tips : Blackjack Splitting Aces & Eights

O.k. there are times in blackjack when you
will receive your two up cards that you start with and they will be identical, identical
cards in value; for instance you might get two aces or you might get two deuces; or you
might get two eights. Well in these situations you will be allowed the option of splitting
your two cards and the way that works is you would put out a bet equal to your original
bet; the dealer would split the cards, don’t do it yourself or the eye in the sky will
get fidgety and then you are given two more cards for starting hands. Look at that; you
just got 21 twice. It’s important to note that if you split your aces you’re going to
get and in you get cards that add up to 21; this is not counted as a blackjack in many
casinos. But anyway so if you paid off one to one instead of three to two; there are
situations when you should, should split and situations when you should not but I want
to say that you should always split your aces and you should always split your eights; and
the reason is weather your dealer shows an up card of a king or say a deuce, or any other
up card, you are statistically better off splitting this hand and splitting this hand
than playing it any other way. So always splits; always split your aces and eights.

  1. i wouldn't split on 2 8's if the dealer is showing a 10, i would just hit…is this the right call or would you still split?

  2. Do you need more techniques to ensure that you win the game. If yes, you must visit Blackjack Secret Code website and purchase their video.

  3. If you choose not to split or can not split (examples split final allowed/permitted/etc. time or do not have enough money) then yes.

  4. mathematically it is in your best interest to split 8's

    over a sample run you will lose less in the long run if you split 8's

    it's mathematics, don't fight it.

  5. Splitting is no more a "technique" than hitting or standing is. It's a move available. A plan for when to split might be considered technique, but IMO "strategy" is still a better word. Vocabulary fail.

  6. The only thing that sucks about splitting 2 aces is you only get 1 card for each ace
    you don't get to hit again.

  7. Always split your aces and eights or the more seasoned players will get mad at you for mucking up the remaining cards in the shoe.
