Here you will find two charts – Single Deck Blackjack & 4-8 Decks Blackjack. Both charts are based on that the dealer must stand on soft 17. The purpose of these strategy charts is to help you learn the basic rules of when to hit, when to stand, when to double down and when to split pairs under different situations. By studying these charts carefully, you will learn the best decision to make in any hand given in Blackjack.
To use these basic strategy charts, your hand is displayed along the left y axis (vertical ) and the dealer’s up card along the x axis (top, horizontal). In both places the A stands for ace. The hard totals are displayed at the top, followed by soft totals and splits.
