Splitting Aces

5-1-AC-ASYou can always consider splitting aces when you are playing blackjack. After all, getting two aces at the start of a game is always an uncommon affair even if there are plenty of decks to use in a game.

It’s critical to split aces every time you get them. You should be aware of a few rules associated with doing so though. You have to be aware of not only what can happen but also how the payout for getting your aces split may be a little different from what you might expect to get out of a game like this.

An Improved Shot

One of the best parts of splitting aces is that you will have an easier shot at getting a better overall payout when doing so. By splitting aces, you are essentially making it so you might get some bigger payouts off of the cards that you get.

There is no guarantee that you are going to get two ten-value cards off of a split but there is a good chance that you will at least have a better shot at winning it when you consider how many of these cards are in a game. You can get two 21 hands off of the aces if possible.

Of course, you always have a shot at getting a 17 to 20 if you get a good-value card off of the split. This is thanks to the game offering a better overall organization when used carefully enough.

Re-splitting May Work

There are times when re-splitting may occur when you play with two aces as well. Let’s say that you get a third ace in your series. This hand that has the second and third aces could be split again depending on where you play. This hand can be worth a good deal of money provided that you are careful with how you are getting the cards played out.

Two Important Rules

There are two key rules that you have to be aware of when splitting aces. First, you will not be able to actually hit on your hand when you have two aces. This is different from other blackjack hands where you would be allowed to get a hit on something after splitting.

Second, the value of the 21 on a split will not be the same as that of a natural blackjack. Whereas a natural blackjack pays better than when you get a regular winning hand, a case where you get a 21 off of a split is just going to be worth 21. It will still give out a regular payout. Of course, you still have the chance to have two winning hands on your draw instead of just one but be advised that the worst case scenario, in this case, would be that your draw would just be a free one.

Splitting aces is certainly a good move to think about while playing blackjack. Be sure to think about how the rules for doing so can work so you will have an easier time with getting the most out of your game and what you can earn off of it.
