Blackjack Strategy
Las Vegas Rules / Multiple Deck

Two blackjack strategy charts are shown here. Both strategies use the same statistical information but in different presentation formats. It's not necessary to memorize both charts but you need to know one of the two perfectly. The Condensed Optimal Strategy is the easiest for most to remember and use. Since the player's hand constantly changes as hits are taken, while the dealer's up-card doesn't, the condensed version's focus on the dealer's upcard, rather than the player's hand, gives you much less to remember as each of your hands are being played out.

The A7 play in the condensed chart can be confusing, so here is how it works. . . . When the dealer's upcard is 4 to a 6, the chart gives you two instructions: (1) Double and (2) Hit To & Stand With - 12 or A7. You Double if your first two cards are A7. If you are playing a Hit hand and then catch an Ace, you then Hit To & Stand With A7. When the dealer shows a 3, the A7 soft total play is the same .

About Insurance -
Although casino staff members might offer you a different explanation, Blackjack insurance is nothing more than a side bet that the dealer with an Ace up has 10 in the hole. With normal card distribution, at the 2 to 1 payoff, it is about 8% against you. Not a good bet. However, if you happen to be observant enough to know when the remaining deck has fewer than twice as many non-tens than tens, then it's a good bet. Remember Dustin Hoffman's "Rain Man"? He was good at that.
