MAKING A STAND IN LIVE DEALER BLACKJACK

Knowing the degree of threat will help you to make good decisions on your next move. On a hard hand, or a hand without an ace in the first two cards, there are general rules which help in your decision on whether to hit or stand. It is always wisest to stand if you have a hard 17 or higher, no matter what the dealer is showing. Basic strategy also calls for you to stand if your hand totals 13 to 16 and the dealer’s upcard is a 2 through a 6. The high number of 10’s in the deck give you a better chance to bust if you decide to take a hit. The same holds true for the dealer, who has a high probability of having a 10 as the hole-card. In this scenario, the dealer would have to draw another card, and the possibility of the dealer busting in this instance is quite high.

Basic strategy is different for soft hands. If your hand is an ace/7 combination, or soft eighteen, then you should stand if the dealer is showing a 2, 7, or 8, double down if the dealer is showing a 3 through a 6, or hit if the dealer shows a 9, 10, or ace. You should always stand on a soft nineteen, with one exception, when the dealer if showing a 6. In this instance you are just taking the opportunity to increase your bet, anticipating that the dealer will draw a bust card. With a soft 20 in your hand, always stand, no matter what the dealer is showing.

There are times that you are going to have to take a hit in order to beat the dealer, even though you know that you have a good chance to go over 21. There are also times when taking a hit on your hand might seem counterproductive, however, it gives you the best option to beat the dealer.

Whenever you have a hand that totals 8 or less, you should always take a hit. It doesn’t matter what the dealer is showing in this instance, since you can’t bust and you can only make your hand better. Similarly, if you have a hand that totals 9 then you should take a hit if the dealer is showing a 2 or 7 through ace. Hit or double down when you have a hand that totals 10, and hit on a hand of 12 if the dealer has an upcard of 2, 3, or 7 through ace.

On soft hands, you should always take a hit or double down when you have an ace paired with a 2 through 6, regardless of what the dealer is showing. If you have a soft 18, then you should only take a hit if the dealer is showing a 9, 10, or ace.
