What Blackjack Players Can Do if They Get Sixteen
April 1st, 2014 by Site Admin
Blackjack players are not fond of getting a sixteen. If they stand, they may not beat the dealer. If they hit, they will bust if they do not receive cards from aces to fives.
What should a blackjack player do if he/she gets sixteen? According to blackjack strategy experts, players can stand if the dealer’s exposed card is anywhere between two and six. If the dealer is showing anywhere between a seven and an ace, players should hit.
But there is an exception to this rule. If players have three cards of point value sixteen and the dealer has a ten, the best option is to stand. For instance, if a player gets a six and a ten and the dealer’s exposed card is a ten, players must stand. If players get a two and a four, decide to hit, and get a ten, the best option for them is to stand if the dealer’s exposed card is ten.
If the casino offers the surrender option, the best strategy for players is to surrender if the dealer’s exposed card is ace, ten, or nine. Players often get confused if they get an eight pair, but the best option in this case is to split.
