Double Exposure Blackjack

24 Apr 2009

Today we would like to speak about one more blackjack variation that can be met at some casinos. 

The rules of Double Exposure blackjack are very similar to the rules of the regular blackjack game with one slight difference: it is played with both dealer's cards face up. Of course, the fact that the player can see both cards of the dealer is very advantageous for him. In order to increase the house edge most casinos change the other rules of the game. So, Double Exposure blackjack is usually played with 6-8 standard decks and the dealer always wins in case of the ties. If you decide to play Double Exposure blackjack, you must remember the following rules:

The dealer Hits on all soft 17s.

Blackjack hand pays 1-to-1.

The dealer wins all the ties (except Blackjack ties). 

The Double Down option is allowed after Splitting. 

The player is allowed to Double Down on 9, 10 and 11.

The player is allowed to Split the hand up to three times.

The hand that totals 21 but is formed after Splitting the Aces is not considered to be a Blackjack.

It is allowed to re-split the Aces.

Because of such differences in the game rules the strategy for Double Exposure blackjack is also different.
