This version of Blackjack is very similar to regular Blackjack in fact. There are hundreds of Blackjack variations played at various venues online or offline. So before you start betting any money, make sure you know exactly the rules applying to your table.
One thing common to almost all blackjack variations is that optimal play is necessary in order to minimize the house edge. Here are a few tips on how to do that:
First some general advice about how to play soft hands with perfect basic strategy in blackjack. There are only seven hands you have to concern yourself with in this category, and soft hands will come up less frequently than hard hands. But it's still important that you play these hands correctly.
The first thing you need to understand about soft hands is that it's impossible to bust with a soft hand. There are no "stiff" soft hands. But once the card total gets high enough that the ace must be counted as a one, the hand is no longer a soft hand; it's now a hard hand and should be played with the appropriate strategy for that hard total.
You'll almost always stand on a soft 18 or higher, and you'll always hit a soft 17 or lower.
Finally a few basic hints and tips for playing hard hands in blackjack, so that there will be something interesting to read in the sections on the specific hands.
One thing to remember is that you should always hit a hard hand 8 or lower.
The other thing you need to keep in mind is that you should always stand on a hard hand of 17 or higher.
That only leaves strategy for eight more possibilities; all other possibilities are covered by the two strategies above. (And to make learning the strategy even easier, the same strategy applies to any total of 13, 14, 15, or 16, which reduces the total number of possibilities to 5.)
Hard 12's through hard 16's are the so-called stiff hands. Such hands are always a bummer because they're often not good enough to defeat the dealer's hand, but they also have a good chance of busting.
Hard hand between 9 and 11 are relatively good hands for doubling down. See the individual strategy pages for each total to figure out exactly what to do with one of these totals and why.
