27 April 2021
In the glory days of blackjack, and maybe even in some casinos today (maybe in the remote hinterlands), there was an option called “surrender.” If you didn’t like your hand you could give up half your bet. This was an excellent option if used correctly.If you were saddled with a 16 and the dealer showed a 10, you could figure you were going to bust or the dealer was going to have a high hand, so you would say, “Surrender.” And that would be that...read more
