We continue with our article on the essential details of twenty-one. In Part One we reviewed the notion of the game, hitting, standing and how to double down. In part 2 we will talk about splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a gambler is assigned two cards of the same value (2 eights as an example) the player may separate them to generate two different hands. If you choose to split your hand you will need to lay a new wager equivalent to the original bet.

Surrender: A few betting houses will permit players to surrender the hand they have been assigned along with half of the original bet they placed prior to the croupier checking his hand. As a rule it's vital to inquire with the croupier for clarification on the table rules or look at the game rules section on the online casino you're wagering on.

Insurance: When the dealers face up card is an Ace players have the option to purchase insurance. You'll place half of the original bet prior to the dealer checking his cards; if the croupier has twenty-one you'll win the insurance bet but still lose the original wager. Regrettably if the dealer doesn't have black jack the competitor loses the insurance. It's a risk but one that's well worth it, if used as part of a smart scheme.

As soon as a competitor has stood or busted by going over twenty-one the dealer will show his/her hand and will go on to deal himself cards until one of the following events has happened: if they have surpassed seventeen, a croupier will not typically take another card due to the chance of going bust, if he has drawn twenty one or if he has busted.
