I happily admit to being a basic strategy player.
I try to play it as "automated" and correctly as possible, enjoying the relaxing fun of the game without no anguish in counting concentration.
In theory, I have most the hands and correct plays memorized but I'm not ashamed to admit that, in real time play, I'm still not fully confident in what's going on with multi-card soft hands and the order in which that Ace or multiple Aces present themselves.
On a basic strategy chart it makes sense and we can see what we're supposed to do with any 2 card soft hand against a certain dealer upcard.
Unfortunately, hands don't always get dealt in such easy one, two punches and, if they do, you often still have to make a "soft" decision on a 3rd or 4th card.
The soft 19 and 20 totals are easy enough to grasp.
No matter if you get those totals on the first 2 cards or after 5, there's virtually never an instance which you hit any further with these except A,8 vs a 6, in which you double.
It's the "soft" 12's through 18's that can get me confused.
Not in whether to hit, stand or double on the initial 2 card totals but as to when to STOP doing this when getting these totals in multi-card fashion.
I think my problem may be that I keep trying to treat soft hands "soft" even once they've become "hard".
That is, once I have to treat the Ace as a 1, I still want to view the total as "soft"?
On the other hand, while practicing some casual hands on one of the CV Basic Strategy Trainer's, I ocassionally get reminded that I should have stood when I chose to hit on certain multi-card hands in which I had an Ace.
Here's one specific example I got.
I was dealt in order a 3 and an A for a straightforward "soft" 14 against the dealer's 2.
Playing 6 decks, H17, doubles allowed on any cards, DAS, etc this first decision is easy enough.
Every chart says you simply hit.
So I do and get another Ace.
Now, to my thinking, I counted this as a working total of "soft" 15 a 3, one ace as 11 and one as a 1.
So now I'm thinking along the lines of what do I do with a soft 15 versus a 2.
Again, according to basic strategy, you hit that total vs a 2.
So I do and get an 8.
So now my hand consists of 3, A difference between hard and soft hand blackjack, A, 8.
I now figure that I obviously have to treat both Aces as 1's or I've busted.
So I figured this is now a "hard" total of 13.
This is where I started to really get confused.
I know the total of the hand has to be treated "hard" because no Ace can be considered 11, yet visually I'm still wanting to look at this like it's a hand of "soft" 13???
Going with that reasoning I double checked the charts and saw that if I'm right in viewing this hand that way, I still want to hit a soft 13 against a 2.
So I clicked hit and it was at this point the trainer corrected me and said I was supposed to stand?
I trust that it's right, not me but I do get tripped up in these multi hand cases.
Was the reason for blackjack edgewater because the hand was no longer "soft" after I had to treat both aces as 1?
In which case it was no different than standing on a hard 13 versus a 2 in regular basic strategy?
If so, then I understand.
Yet if that's the case, I swear I've had similair hands where I wasn't counting the Ace as an 11 any longer.
In effect, the total would've been considered "hard" yet I've still been told to hit against these Ace containing hands until I either reach a 19, 20 or, obviously, 21.
I guess the question is why are we hitting ace containing but hard hands in some cases between 12-18 and being told to stand on these "hard" ace s containing hands in other cases?
I'm sure this is something obvious I should know but I still get tripped up.
If it's not either a simple 2 card soft hand like in the charts or a soft hand that ends up as 19 or 20 then it seems these soft 12-18 totals have unstable criteria for standing in some cases and hitting in others, even when the aces are still being counted as 1 hard.
Or maybe I just don't what the heck I'm doing.
If you can hit your hand with no chance of breaking, it is soft.
Once you can no longer do so you treat it as hard.
Your A,3,A,8 cannot be hit with no chance of breaking.
I figured it was something simple I wasn't grasping.
Now it makes sense.
I need to learn to keep the "high" total of the hand with the ace as an 11 seperate from whether it can bust or not if drawn to looking at it as a 1.
That's what still messes me up sometimes.
I was about to say that I could've sworn that I've seen multiple card soft 17's where people say to still hit even though the next card continue reading bust them but now that I think about it, if viewing the ace as a 1, then they could still draw to these hands so I think I understand now until I forget and it trips me up again.
So to verify I got this right for at least one examplesay the dealer's upcard is a 7.
If I'm dealt a 2,A then I want to hit.
Say I get an 9.
Now I have to treat this 2,A,9 combination as a HARD 12 because I cant draw anymore without 100% safety from busting.
So it becomes a hard 12.
Basic strategy says I difference between hard and soft hand blackjack hit hard 12 against 7's or higher so I hit.
Now I have a "hard" 17 and would stand correct?
I don't, in any way view this as a "hittable" or "soft" 17 just because I have an ace in my hand?
I think I'm getting it now.
If you imagine that the ace in your hand is 11 and your hand is over 21, then you are playing a hard hand.
If you imagine the ace is 11 and you have under 21, then you are playing a soft hand.
If you have multiple aces, treat the first one like this and just think of additional aces as 1s.
By definition a soft hand is where an ace counts as an 11 and 1 more card can not bust you.
There for a 3 card or more soft 13 thru a soft 17 should always be hit because you can't make the hand anyworse!
If the ace counts as 1 than you have a hard hand.
It should be pointed out: If the house edge is 50.
This does not mean that your chance of going home a winner after a blackjack session is 49.
Your actual chance of being an overall winner goes to 0% pretty quickly as you play more and more hands.
It should be pointed out: If the house edge is 50.

Yeah, I was referring to being happy to just play basic strategy and some basic strategy hand exception rules well enough to get the long run advantage of the house to as even as 0% as possible.
I do realize I won't quite get it to that exact zero point playing just basic strategy but see more me it's worth it since it keeps the "fun" of the game alive for me, which is the whole point.
Besides I https://pink-stuf.com/blackjack/advanced-blackjack-strategy-card.html view blackjack as a "money-making" vehicle or even a game where Click here supposed to have the edge.
To me that's why it's called "gambling" and why it's fun - because the house is supposed to have the edge very slightlynot me.
What fun is it to take money from the house if you know what the cards are and you're always playing with an advantage??
Just kidding sort of.
I know even counters don't always win and most cannot consistently do it well anyways.
Still, the fun and spirit of the game in my humble opinion is in just the general probabilities of the hands and doing as best as I can to make this natural house advantage as close to zero as possible without me having to sacrifice the fun and thrill of the game for excessive "work".
in what and blackjack is soft hard realize the counters are likely more "skilled" and they're the ones that can reap the awards of playing at an advantage if that's what is fun and worthwhile to them.
So I'm definitely blessed to be just a hair on this side of the basic strategy fence.
I would not want to trade sides.
I don't ever want blackjack to not be "fun".
If it ever turns into more work and memorization than just casual thrill and gamble then I think it would be my que to leave.
But this is just me.
I know, call me crazy Thanks for the help and ideas everyone.
I think I'm grasping the "soft" dilemma a little more clearly now.
Thanks for the help and ideas everyone.
I think I'm grasping the "soft" dilemma a little more clearly now.
I might have to get a copy and look further into it.
But I obviously think everyone does some random "card awareness" which, seeing it doesn't give the player a real edge anyways, is perfectly innocent to do.
For example, I've long been curious about the simple fact of what I call "card quantity awareness".
Surprisingly, until this list here, it was one isolated part of blackjack that I had really never heard anyone mention or reveal computer studies on before.
I was sure it had been done, everything about about blackjack has but I had never heard it discussed as a simple vague basic strategy technique.
The most I dicovered was a page in Peter Griffin's Theory Of Blackjack book about 5 card hands encountered bet blackjack strategy increase 10,000 hands played.
It had a list of how many 5 card hands ended up at various totals click to see more and against which dealer upcards you can expect to get the most 5 card hands against.
Anyways, it occured to me that one can always get a general though by no means precise idea of how the deck may lie on future hands just doing something as simple as noticing if the hand dealt to you or the hand the dealer draws merely consists of 4 or more cards.
I typically try to just keep mental note of 5 card hands to be slightly more "certain".
Of course if one pops up here or there within a shoe it's obviously no big deal.
You always see roughly 5-10 4 plus hands within the first half or so of a given 6 deck shoe.
BUT, if I notice say 3 of these within 7 hands or something, then I have a casual awareness to assume that I likely have at difference between hard and soft hand blackjack a tiny advantage now for following hands at least until 3 LOW quantity hands come back in to negate it.
However, I quickly realized from experience that this is neither a "significant" advantage nor one that is free from being misleading.
For example, I've also noted 5 card hands that are mostly "good" cards high cards.
For instance, you do get your share of, say, read more, 8, 7, A, A type hands.
Is this really a "good" hand for me as far as future hands will go even though it's a 5 quantity hand?
Really the 2 is the only clear-cut "bad" card now out of the way here.
The two aces actually are very harmful to be gone!
So 5 card hands can be misleading sometimes.
But I do use it, casually.
I don't "count" the hands.
I don't even concentrate on the number of 4 plus hands drawn to the extent I stop having fun or talking etc.
And I definitely don't widely spread bets in any circumstance.
Does doing this really even help me?
Is my advantage, in the difference between hard and soft hand blackjack run, even any closer to even than it was if I didnt do these random "hand quantity checks" now and then?
But I do figure it can perhaps only add a few hundredths of a percentage to the zero end as opposed to just playing every hand as if I wasn't even aware that a few 5 quantity hands recently came out.
Likewise, I also naturally realized that "no hitting" plays should typically not favor a player for hands thereafter.
I do try to take note if I've seen a few hands within a pocket of rounds where both me and the dealer are largely turning over face cards against one or another or even 10, 8 type hands back and forth.
This obviously should reflect later hands might be a bit less favorable.
The one I find curious in which I wouldn't have ever thought of myself is the odds of having more of an advantage on the next hand following a hard double-down.
I'm guessing the reasoning behind this is the likliehood of being dealt 5,4 or 5,5 to double down totals.
Then if you're unlucky enough to draw a 2-5 on your double-down card then I can see how that would take 3 "bad" cards out of the way and maybe open the next hands for more favorability.
I also find the non-ace splitting of pairs to signal later favorable hands for the player to be interesting as well.
I guess the idea is that two hands are likely to rid of more cards hopefully low ones?
Although I can think of cases where splitting would equally lead to higher cards being removed as well - like if splitting 8's or 9's and drawing 9's or 10's to each hand.
This, overall, wouldn't be good as largely high cards are being played out.
But, all in all, a very interesting article.
As a basic strategy player not expecting to get a huge jump in advantage but merely utilizing some innocent plays to get closer to zero, I find these things interesting.
Be sure to read the paragraph starting "the problem with this system".
Only playing a deeply dealt one deck game, with good rules, including BJ pays 3-2 can these rules swing the advantage to the player.
So the question is "how many single deck, deeply dealt, 3-2 blackjack games with good rules still exist?
It's interesting to see those "situational" lists from Dubey's book.
I might have to get a copy and look further into it.

No I have not, but basically, it has to do with the make up of players and dealers hands and the values of the cards, just as counting does.
So just like when counting the value of each individual cards seen, will be worth less with a six deck game.
At least thats my thinking.

And even knew before reading it that these continue reading situations that are going to bring any large chunk of benefit.
As mentioned, I don't even want or really even believe in the player having any defined long term advantage.
Indeed, if they just slightly add some tiny percentage points to me as a helpless but happy basic strategy player, then that's all I could expect from them.

The Worst Hand in Blackjack By Henry Tamburin No other hand makes players feel queasy than the dreaded 16.
Players hate to click the hand because they are afraid to bust.
So many chicken out and stand no matter what the dealer shows.
Then there is the 16 made up with an Ace counted as 11 i.
Some examples of a hard 16 would be 10-6 or 5-7-4 or 7-8-Ace.
The correct basic playing strategy for hard 16 is to stand when the dealer shows a small card 2 through 6 and hit when the dealer shows a high card 7, 8, 9, 10, or Ace.
Following this playing strategy will not guarantee that you will win every time but that you are more likely to lose less in the long run.
Suppose you are dealt a 10-6 and the dealer shows a 7 upcard.
If you hit you win on average 30% of the time and lose 70%.
If you stand you will on average win 26% and lose 74%.
Note that you improve your chances of winning the hand by 4% if you hit rather than stand.
But the dealer is still an overwhelming favorite to beat difference between hard and soft hand blackjack because he will win 70% of the hands to your 30%.
But is it better to win 26% of the time by standing or 30% of the time by hitting?
You should hit because it will increase your chance of winning by 4%, not much, but every percentage will help you in the long run when you play blackjack.
So the bottom line with a hard 16 is this.
Even by following the basic strategy you will lose more hands than you win but in the long run you will loss less than following a seat-of-the-pants strategy.
Losing less on hands where you are the underdog is just as important as winning more when difference between hard and soft hand blackjack are the favorite.
What if your 16 consists of three or more cards like 5-7-4?
Normally the basic strategy ignores the composition of the hand.
However, if you have difference between hard and soft hand blackjack hard 16 hand consisting of three or more cards, then you should stand when the dealer has a 10 showing.
The reason is that you have consumed a few of the small cards that you need if you were to draw.
This tips the odds in favor difference between hard and soft hand blackjack standing.
Some casinos allow players to surrender.
This means you give up the opportunity to play out your hand and automatically lose half your bet.
In fact surrender is always the best option when your chance of winning a hand is less than 25%.
Take the hand of difference between hard and soft hand blackjack 16 against a 10.
If we hit our chance of winning is 23.
If you happen to be dealt a soft 16 like Ace-5you should never surrender and you should never stand.
Your first option is to double but only if the dealer shows a weak 4, 5 or 6 upcard.
If not, then hit.
No question that 16 is a lousy blackjack hand.
But, by following the above playing strategy classes blackjack dealer will be optimizing your chances of winning more, and losing less, in the long run.
