What are the moves in Blackjack?
Before we get started with revealing all of the juicy strategies to make you a Blackjack pro, here is just a quick reminder of the core moves possible in each game. Each move has also been labelled so you know exactly what each move on the chart means.
Hit (H)- Adds an additional card to the total value of the hand
Stay (S)- The hand value of the two dealt cards is the final value
Double Down (D)- Adds an additional 100% bet to a player hand and draws one final card before staying
Pair Split (PS)- Activates when identical value cards are dealt and become their own individual pairs
Surrender (Su)- The player folds and is given back half of their initial stake.
