How did you do at the Blackjack Quiz?

1) B. The objective is not to get as close to 21 as possible, but to beat the dealer.
It’s very possible to win with a 13 or 14 count and a Dealer Bust.

2) C. The best tables are: Dealer Must Draw to 16 and Stand on All 17’s, use a single deck, have no restrictions on doubling down, allow re-splitting, and have a surrender option available.

3) C.  Includes an Ace. This hand has two values, depending on whether you use the ace as 1 or 11. Therefore, a 5 and an ace could be 6 or 16.

4) A. Player surrenders after receiving first two cards and loses only half their original bet.  An early surrender when the player forfeits his or her hand before the dealer checks for a 21 is the best surrender option.

5) B. When the dealer shows a 2 through 9. Note: You get one card only if you double down.

6) B. Never Split 4’s, 5’s and 10’s. Some additional strategies: 2’s, 3’s, 6’s, 7’s—Split on 2 through 7 Dealer Upcard. Always Split 8’s and Aces.

7) A. True Count is 0 for 7, 8 or 9 while 2-6 = +1 and 10, Face and Aces = -1 for multiple decks.

8) B. Dealer will bust about once every 4 hands played (28%). Players will be dealt a blackjack about once every 21 hands and lose more often than win when dealt an 18.

9) B. Pays 3-2 because paying 6-5 is far worse. Also, avoid any table that uses a continuous shuffling machine as the cards after each round are returned to the shuffler.

10) C. When first two cards dealt are an ace and a ten.
