In various publications on Casinoz dedicated to the blackjack strategy, we discussed the surrender rule and situations when to use it. In this article we will talk about various versions of surrender in blackjack.

Surrender is a rule in blackjack, which allows players to stop the game at half the bet. In classic blackjack it can be done only with the first two cards of the player. Restrictions on the use of this rule increases the house edge. For this reason, almost all of them prohibit making Surrender, if a dealer has opened an ace and in many casinos that can not be done even when the open card of the dealer has a dignity of ten points.

Of course, you need to use this rule according to the recommendations of the basic strategy, but not all players know it in detail. Besides, it is not always easy to analyze the situation if you have to play with unknown rules. Therefore, we will describe when to surrender depending on the number of decks in the game, and order of dealer's cards.

We'll talk about playing with one or more decks, as well as a version of the game in which the dealer draws a card to a soft seventeen points (ie, an ace) or stops it. Some professionals give some tips on playing with two decks, but this option is not as popular in blackjack as some say.

Single-deck game where the dealer stops set on a soft 17

With these rules you should surrender in the following cases:

  • The player has 16 points, and the dealer's card is an ace or has a value of 10 points.
  • The player has a pair of sevens, and the dealer's card is of 10 points.

Single-deck game where the dealer has soft 17

These are more favorable rules for casinos, so a player should surrender more often when:

The player has 15, 16 or 17 points, and the dealer's ace.

  • The player has 16 points, and the dealer's card is of 10 points.
  • The player has a pair of sevens, and the dealer's card is an ace or has a value of 10 points.

Several decks when the dealer stops set on a soft 17

With these rules a player must surrender only in these situations:

  • He has 15 points, and the dealer's card is of 10 points.
  • He has 16 points and the dealer has an ace or a card of 9, 10 points.

With a pair of sevens you should not leave the game.

Several decks when the dealer draws a card to a soft 17

With these rules, a player should surrender more often when

  • He has 15 points and the dealer has an ace or a card of 10 points.
  • He has 16 points and the dealer has an ace or a card of 9, 10 points.
  • He has 17 points and the dealer has an ace.

He has a pair of sevens and eights, and the dealer has an ace.

These tips were developed for using surrender by mathematical calculations and have general statistics. This means that following them reduces the casino advantage on the long interval, but does not guarantee the most profitable game in every single hand.
