Not every player that accesses an online blackjack game will have mastered basic strategies and many new players will quickly get excited when they hold a high pair and will immediately split. There are different strategies that should be used for each high pair and by earning what to do with these hands, players will enjoy more chances at winning when they are playing real money games. These strategies are part of the optimal basic strategy and should be learned by any player that wishes to continue playing blackjack online.
When holding high pairs, the dealer card will be an important aspect and will help determine the action that should be taken. When players have a pair of eights, they should split no matter what the dealer is showing. There is no chance of busting with a single hit and it is best to play the extra wager with a starting value of 8. With a pair of nines, players will start with a hand value of 18, and some players may feel this is good enough and will stand. This is the worst choice. One should split the nines to have better chances of getting 10 or 20 in both hands. Since about 40% of the blackjack deck consists of 10 and 11 valued cards, the chances are pretty good. However, the dealer card welcome into play here. If they have a 10 card or an Ace, there is a good chance for the dealer to get blackjack. In this case, do not risk the extra wager by splitting.
With a pair of tens, which can be a pair of 10 cards, Jacks, Queens or Kings, always stand. This hand value of 20 is almost a perfect hand and it would be quite foolish to split these hands. In the case of a pair of Aces, always split this hand since the value of the hand is just 2 or 12. By splitting, players will have a good chance of getting a blackjack in both hands, creating instant wins for both wagers that have been placed.
By using these basic strategies with high pairs, players will have more opportunities to win and will benefit from playing the real money games online. Always try to select a game that does offer splitting options as this is the only way these strategies can be beneficial.
