For splitting 8's, the biggest cost is against a ten; otherwise splitting 8's is very positive overall. I would only play shoe blackjack if surrender is allowed, in 6–8.

Other experts advise against splitting 8s against anything but a 7, When you split all other cards (including 10s, though cardrooms frown I side more with Patrick on this one, though I do split 8s when the dealer shows a 9.

John Grochowski: Sometimes blackjack is about playing offense, and sometimes it's about playing I've never split 8s when the dealer has a 10 or a face. But the dealer busts when showing a 6 only about 42% of the time.

blackjack split 8s with 10 showing

In all other games, splitting 8s against the 10 is the best strategy.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} The only way to know for sure which strategy is best is to calculate in dollars how much you can expect to lose using each strategy and then compare the results. Even though you are the underdog when you are dealt a pair of 8s against a dealer 10, you are less of an underdog when you split the 8s and play two hands with an 8 on each hand. Because when you play an 8 against a 10, you stand to win this hand more times Can I repeat that again With me? Is it hitting, standing, splitting, or as Patrick suggests, throwing in the towel and surrendering? I know that every once in a while you are going to lose both of your split hands and feel lousy about it been there, done that. How have you improved your situation? And the math to do this calculation is, surprisingly, quite simple. For the following analysis, I assumed a standard game: 6-deck, s17, das, and resplitting allowed up to four hands. What we positively, absolutely, know about hitting or standing on 16 against a dealer 10 is this: on average you will win this hand only 23 times out of hey, I told you this was a bad hand. Note: The actual win percent to two decimal places is But when your 16 happens to be a pair of 8s, you have an escape: you can split and play each 8 against the Why would you want to do this? {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}The dealer still has that king showing. There is no question that the dealer has the upper hand when you hold a pair of 8s against her So, there is no argument here: you are the underdog, period. Or have I convinced you to split? But, what Patrick and others fail to grasp is the following:. I give it up. The fourth playing option that Patrick proposed is to surrender the hand. In fact, most players agree with Patrick and would never split.
