Debunking Common Blackjack Myths

The most confusing thing about playing blackjack is planning a proper move when the player gets a hand equaling 12 and the dealer’s face-up card is either 2 or 3.

If the dealer’s face-up card is anywhere between 2 and 6, it could mean that the dealer has a high chance of going bust. The odds of the dealer going bust under such a situation is anywhere between 35 percent and 42 percent. On the contrary, the odds of a dealer going bust while his/her face-up card shows cards between 7 and Ace is just 11 percent.

If a dealer’s face-up card is somewhere between 2 and 6, players will usually stand if they have a hand with more than 10. However, many of them wonder which strategy they must use if they have over 12 and the dealer’s face-up card is either 2 or 3. A blackjack strategy chart gives the required advice, but still players tend to get confused.

Belief in certain blackjack myths can hurt players’ chances of winning at blackjack. One of the biggest mistakes players can make is assume that dealers’ hole cards are always ten. In fact, chances of dealers getting 10 as their hole cards are around 30 percent only.
