Playing Blackjack Pairs – Online Casino Tips

Blackjack - Casino Game

Blackjack is one of the most entertaining games there is in casinos, whether the casino is land based, or online. The reason why more and more people go for a game of blackjack is because blackjack offers the player to have a control over the end result of each game. It is also one of the few casino games out there that has the best odds as well.

In a game of blackjack, when you receive a pair, you will have an option to split the cards into two hands. Of course, you will have the chance to break even, or in the worst case scenario, lose twice your original bet. With that said, you really should learn how to properly play those pairs in order to maximize the chances of you winning the casino game.


Split the Cards

There are certain times when you will have an advantage if you split your hand. One of which is when you have a blackjack pair of aces or eights. If you decide to split the hand, you will have a much better shot at winning something potentially bigger. However, if you have a pair of 10’s with you, you really should not split as you will only be wasting an already good hand. If you have a pair of either 2’s or 3’s, then you should consider splitting the cards if the dealer’s face up card values from 2 to 7. If you have a pair of 4’s on you, then you should split them if the dealer’s face up card is either a 4 or 5. If you have two 6’s, then you should split if the dealer’s face up card values from 2 to 6.


Splitting with Exceptions

If you manage to get a pair of 9’s, then you should just stand if ever the dealer’s face up card is a 7, 10 or ace, but you should remember to split the 9’s if the dealer has a face up card with a value from 2 to 6, 8 or 9. If you have a pair of 5’s, then you should always double down on if the dealer’s casino face up card is anywhere from 2 to 9. And if not, you should hit.

Overall, once you have memorized these and put them by heart, you will then have a much better chance of winning when you get a pair.
