We continue with our article on the basics of black jack. In Part 1 we covered the notion of chemin de fer, hitting, standing and how to double down. In part two we’ll talk about splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a player is assigned two cards of the same amount (2 eights for instance) the gambler may split them to create two different hands. If you decide to separate your hand you’ll need to make a new bet equal to the initial bet.

Surrender: A few betting houses will allow players to surrender the cards they have been assigned along with half of the initial wager they made prior to the croupier checking their hand. Keep in mind it’s vital to ask the croupier for clarification on the table game rules or check out the rules area on the web betting house you are gambling on.

Insurance: When the dealers exposed card is an Ace individuals have the option to purchase insurance. You will place half of the initial bet before the croupier looks at his cards; if the croupier has blackjack you’ll win the insurance bet but still lose the original bet. Sadly if the croupier doesn’t have twenty-one the competitor loses the insurance. It is a risk but one that’s well worth it, if used as part of a smart tactic.

As soon as a competitor has stayed or busted by going over twenty-one the dealer will reveal his or her hand and will continue to deal themselves cards until 1 of the following elements has happened: if they have surpassed 17, a croupier will not normally draw another card because of the likelihood of busting, if he has drawn twenty-one or if he has busted.
