Basic Strategy Table for Blackjack
If this doesn't make sense to you, read our Blackjack Guide.


This table is for basic multiple-deck games in which the dealer stands on Soft 17. Here's how to read the table:

The dealer's up card is shown on the top row (2-A). Your hand is shown in the left-hand column.

= Stand
= Hit
= Double Down
= Double if allowed, otherwise Stand
= Double if allowed, otherwise Hit
= Split
= Split if you can double down after split, otherwise Hit
= Surrender if allowed, otherwise Hit
