## Splitting 8s in blackjack: Is it worth the risk?

Blackjack players are taught early on to split aces and 8s. But your faithful gambling columnist, always the skeptic, wonders: Before we get into specifics, it's only fair to offer a primer for the rookies: In blackjack, when your first two cards match, you're allowed to "split" them, essentially turning one hand into two.

When you split aces, you get only one card for each ace. When you split all other cards including 10s, though cardrooms frown upon this , you can play the hand out however you like. Naturally, you're only going to split cards if doing so helps you win or gives you a stronger hand to stand a chance against the dealer - which brings us to our lesson about splitting 8s.

Tuesday, June 25, The basics of splitting 9s in blackjack. If you're a blackjack player, and have never looked at a basic strategy table, you should. It's a tidy little grid, with possible player hands down the side, and possible dealer face-up cards across the top. Find the rectangle directly across from your hand, and directly down from the dealer's, and the basic strategy table tells you whether to hit, stand, split, double down or even surrender, if the house permits such a thing.

Mostly the plays fit into neat little groupings, as you can see if you check out charts such as those on Michael Shackleford's Wizard of Odds site, at http: Large blocks of hands have the same correct play.

If you start with a pair of 7s, the block of rectangles showing dealer up cards of 2 through 7 tell you to split the pair, while the block showing dealer's 8 or above tell you just to hit. Sometimes the block of like plays comes in the middle of the line. With Ace-4 or Ace-5, the grid tells you to double down in that block showing dealer's 4, 5 or 6, but just to hit against anything else.

Basic strategy is orderly and logical. The charts don't tell you to make one play against one dealer up card, the opposite play against the next higher card, then go back to the original play against the next cart. Yes, there is an exception to all that orderliness. When you have a pair of 9s, the blocks aren't quite so neat.
