One of the great things about writing articles about blackjack tournament strategy is that I always learn something during the process. This monthís topic is a great example. I set out to answer what I thought was a simple question. What I learned was a real surprise.
Consider this situation. You know for sure youíll need to win two max bets to advance, but youíre almost out of hands in the round. This is a situation most likely to arise in a non-elimination accumulation tournament, but it could happen at an elimination round as well.
Letís say its hand 29 of a 30 hand round, and youíre $2000 from where you need to be, but the max bet is only $1000. Itís obvious that youíd really like to be dealt a good basic strategy double-down on this hand. If you win it, you wonít have to worry about the next hand. Itís also pretty clear that you shouldnít be as picky about what hands youíll double in this case.
