Bad strategy

You should not resort to the following actions when playing blackjack:

Failure to pick up cards. Many players refuse to deal cards at 12 points on a "solid" hand. Such blackjack online tactics will lead to frequent losses. If the dealer is holding an open card of low value, you should always ask for an additional card.

Copying the dealer's style of play. It is not necessary to repeat the dealer's actions, as he acts according to strictly established rules. For example, he can't split cards or double up, so if you have 17 in your hand, you don't always have to save the hand. If the hand is "soft," you should draw an additional card, especially if the dealer's open card is an 8, 9, or 10.

Take insurance when in the slightest doubt. No matter how much a player bets or what his hand is, insurance is a bad bet. Only 4 out of 13 possible cards will give the croupier blackjack under an ace. The probability of blackjack is 30.8%. If insurance betting funds are paid out on a 2-to-1 basis, it is always a losing option.

Fear the hidden ten. If the dealer had an ace on top, the probability that the hidden card is a 10 is pretty low. In this case, you shouldn't be in a hurry to deal cards. If you have a strong hand, you can even double your bet.
