We resume our article on the abc’s of Blackjack. In the last article we covered the basis of chemin de fer, taking another card, holding with the current hand and how to double down. In part two we will discuss splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a player is assigned 2 cards of the same value (two 8’s as an example) he may separate them to generate two different hands. If you choose to split your hand you will have to place a new wager equal to the original bet.

Surrender: Some casinos will allow individuals to surrender the cards they have been given along with half of the initial bet they placed before the croupier checks their hand. Keep in mind it’s vital to inquire with the dealer for clarification on the blackjack table rules or check the game rules area on the web casino you are wagering on.

Insurance: When the croupiers exposed card is an Ace gamblers have the chance to take out insurance. You’ll lay half of the initial wager before the croupier checks his cards; if the dealer has chemin de fer you will win the insurance wager but still lose the initial bet. Regrettably if the dealer does not have blackjack the competitor loses the insurance. It’s a chance but one that is well worth it, if used as part of a clever scheme.

Once a player has stood or gone bust by exceeding 21 the croupier will reveal his cards and will go on to deal themselves cards until 1 of the following events has happened: if he has surpassed 17, a dealer won’t typically take another card because of the possibility of going bust, if they have drawn 21 or if he has gone bust.
