What you need to know about blackjack rules

Check Regal Poker for Latest Poker News, poker strategy tips and more.
Maybe you’re looking for a single-deck game, or a game in which the dealer stands on soft 17, or a blackjack game in which you can double down whenever you want to. If you know the rules of the different blackjack games, you can make an informed decision. Otherwise, picking a blackjack game is just a random shot in the dark.
Knowledge of the rules is also important in making sure that you are using the correct blackjack basic strategy table. If you are playing a 4-deck game, and using a blackjack basic strategy table designed for a single-deck game, you will not be playing the optimal blackjack strategy. You won’t want to play blackjack with a disadvantage like that, especially if you are playing blackjack for real money.

Finally, you don’t want to have any rude surprises in the middle of playing blackjack online. If you really want to double down on a soft 15, and the blackjack software is not giving you a double down option, you could get angry or frustrated. The better option, however, is to understand that the rules of your particular blackjack game do not allow doubling in that situation. Then you can either decide calmly to hit instead of doubling, or you can search for a different blackjack game that does allow doubling down on soft 15. Either way, understanding of the rules will lead to your playing online blackjack in a good mood and a calm spirit, instead of with rancour and bitterness. That’s certainly no way to have fun.
