Let’s make sure we know we have an idea of
what a good hand is to start with in blackjack. Well, the very best, of course, is blackjack.
It’s an ace with a face or an ace with a ten. That’s blackjack. If you get that you’re not
even going to be asked to stand or bet, I’m sorry, stand or hit. You’re going to get paid
off three to two no questions asked. Next is twenty. Twenty is a nine and an ace or
two cards that equal ten. That’s a great hand. You’re going to stand and you’re usually going
to win. Another good starting hand, jack nine or you know a ten and a nine. That equals
nineteen. Another combination is eighteen. These are all good to decent starting hands.
Eighteen so-so, but everything else is really good. These are hands that you’ll get them
and you’ll say stand. Now let’s look at hands that you’re going to hit, but you’re happy
because the most, there are more cards in a deck of cards for blackjack that equal ten
than anything else. Tens equal ten, jacks equal ten, queens and kings all equal ten.
So if I get a seven and four or anything that adds up to eleven. I’m going to be excited
because there’s more tens than anything else in the deck. Same goes for anything that adds
up to ten like six and four. So these are good starting hands. In these two cases you’re
going to hit. In these cases you’re going to stand and most of the time you’re going
to be smiling as a result.
