We resume our article on the essential details of twenty-one. In Part 1 we covered the basis of the game, hitting, standing and how to double down. In part two we’ll discuss splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a gambler is given two cards of the same value (two 8’s for instance) he may break them up to generate two different hands. If you decide to separate your hand you will have to lay a new wager equivalent to the original bet.

Surrender: Some casinos will allow gamblers to surrender the hand they have been assigned along with half of the original bet they placed before the dealer checks his hand. As a rule it’s vital to inquire with the croupier for clarification on the table game rules or check the game rules section on the web betting house you’re playing on.

Insurance: When the croupiers face up card is an Ace individuals have the option to take out insurance. You’ll place half of the initial wager prior to the croupier checking his cards; if the dealer has black jack you’ll win the insurance wager but still lose the original wager. Unfortunately if the dealer doesn’t have chemin de fer the competitor loses the insurance. It’s a chance but one that’s well worth it, if used as part of a clever plan.

As soon as a gambler has stood or busted by exceeding twenty one the croupier will reveal his/her cards and will continue to deal himself cards until one of the following events has appeared: if he has surpassed 17, a dealer will not typically take another card because of the chance of going bust, if he has drawn twenty one or if they have busted.
