HIT THAT STIFF

by Kenneth R. Smith

 

Tournament expert Ken Smith has appeared on all four seasons of GSN's World Series of Blackjack, and has several appearances on the Ultimate Blackjack Tour on CBS. He is the author of the e-book. How to Win More Blackjack Tournaments: Tips, Tricks, and Strategies to Supercharge Your Game. Ken hosts the popular website www.BlackjackInfo.com as well as the online tournament community at www.BlackjackTournaments.com.  You can subscribe to his free email newsletter at http://www.blackjackinfo.com/news/. Ken also recently released his new pocket blackjack strategy cards, which is available in our BJI store.

A recent discussion on the forums at BlackjackTournaments.com involved a particular hand that I think is worth examining closely. The situation at first appears a little confusing, at least until you think about it in the right way. Then the appropriate play seems clear. Fortunately, once you know what to look for, playing well in these situations becomes almost automatic. On to the details...

The scenario involves the final hand of a round where only one player will advance. Betting limits are $5 to $300, and no surrender is allowed. The bets have already been placed and the cards have been dealt.
