We resume our article on the abc’s of twenty-one. In the preceding article we covered the basis of twenty-one, hitting, standing and how to double down. In part two we’ll talk about splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a gambler is given 2 cards of the same amount (2 eights for instance) the player may break them up to make 2 different hands. If you decide to separate your hand you will have to place a new wager equivalent to the initial bet.

Surrender: Some betting houses will allow individuals to surrender the hand they have been assigned along with half of the initial bet they made prior to the croupier checking their hand. Keep in mind it is vital to ask the croupier for clarification on the twenty-one table rules or look at the rules area on the online casino you’re gambling on.

Insurance: When the dealers exposed card is an Ace individuals have the chance to purchase insurance. You’ll place half of the initial bet prior to the dealer looking at his cards; if the dealer has chemin de fer you will come away with a win on the insurance bet but still lose the original wager. Sadly if the croupier does not have twenty-one the gambler loses the insurance. It’s a chance but one that is well worth it, if used as part of a smart tactic.
