E-1: Always hit on 16 when the dealer is showing a 7 or higher


Always hit on 16, when the dealer is showing 7 or higher.

One of the most fundamental Blackjack rule there is

On every Blackjack table it is written that:
“The dealer must draw to 16 and stand on 17”
If the casino always hits on 16, it must be in their favor to do so.

Simulations have been run over millions of hands.
1st the player stands on 16
2nd the player always hits on 16
By hitting the player minimized their losses by 7.5%

When playing Blackjack using Basic Strategy the house edge is an average of 0.6%

We will be posting more on the subject of Basic Strategy in future posts
