In blackjack, the standard rule is that if the player is dealt a pair of identically ranked initial cards, known as a pair, the player is allowed to split them into separate hands and ask for a new second card for each while placing a full initial bet identical to the original wager with each.
Even so, do you split 3s against a 7?
When this is the case, single-deck players are advised to split only when the dealer has disadvantageous cards 3 through 7, and hit against the dealer's deuce, 8, 9, 10, and ace. The pair of 3s should be split versus the dealer's 4 through 7.
Anywho, should you ever split face cards in blackjack? In Face-up Blackjack, where all the cards dealt are exposed, including both dealer's cards, the correct strategy is to split 10s against the dealer's 13, 14, 15 or 16.
Apart from this, do you split 9s against a 3?
According to basic strategy, you should split 9s against every numeric card a dealer holds, except for a 7. The reason is that if the dealer holds a seven, he stands a great chance of holding a 10 hole card and will stand on his hard 17, thus your 9-9 will win.
Do you split 4s in blackjack?
For example, if you were dealt a pair of 4s against a dealer's 5 upcard with DAS, you should split. Suppose on the first 4, you are dealt another 4 on the draw. You should resplit to form a third hand. If the casino allows resplits up to a total of four hands, then you should resplit again if you are dealt another 4.
