Online Blackjack Mistakes to Avoid
When you play online blackjack you will make more money
in the long run if you avoid making mistakes. Let’s take a look
at some of the most common mistakes to avoid.
Standing on Soft 17 or 18 vs. dealer’s
9, 10 or ace
Many players will see that they have 17 or 18 and automatically stand
but when you are up against a power up card from the dealer like the
9, 10 or Ace, the long term math says to hit a soft 17 or soft 18.
A lot of online blackjack players will take insurance when they see
the dealer holding an ace but it is never a good idea to take insurance,
even if you have blackjack.
There are some players who will split a pair of 10’s when the
dealer’s up card is a five or a six. You never want to split
10’s no matter what card the dealer is showing. 20 is a strong
hand and you never want to weaken it.
Hitting 12 to 16 when Dealer shows 2 to 6
It really sucks when you have a total of 12 through 16 in online blackjack
but when the dealer is showing a 2 through 6 you don’t want
to hit your hand. The blackjack math says to stay on these hands and
hope that the dealer busts.
Those are a few online blackjack mistakes to avoid the
next time you are playing at the online casino.
