What Does It Mean To Double Down In Blackjack?

Double Down Worst Cards
For all casinos, both land and online-based, the two through six cards are the worst cards for the dealer. The dealer will bust more times with these particular cards showing. This makes your double down all the more probable of being successful. There are other circumstances where the casino player (you) will double down with a 10 against the casino dealer’s 9 for example, or an 11 against the casino dealer’s 10. These are known as close cards and most casino enthusiasts suggest not doing this. Even though you may not be as successful with this strategy, it is still a possible winning strategy and may prove extremely profitable in the long run. Some casino players are hesitant in general to double down because they do not want to lose their double bet. A good rule of thumb in the game of Blackjack is if the wager size is making you sweat, it is likely that you are at a table that is out of your league. Many casinos will often let you double down for less that your initial wager, as long as it meets the minimum requirements of the table. This is another favorable situation that you should take advantage of.
Doubling down in the game of Blackjack can be very lucrative. When you choose not do double down, you are not necessarily playing incorrectly, but you are not seizing the moment and striking the iron while it is hot, as doubling down substantially increases your odds and lowers the house’s edge.
