We continue with our article on the essential details of twenty-one. In Part One we reviewed the approach of chemin de fer, taking another card, holding with the current hand and how to double down. In part two we will discuss splitting, surrendering and insurance.

Split: if a gambler is given two cards of the same amount (2 8's for example) she may break them up to generate 2 different hands. If you decide to divide your hand you'll need to lay a new wager equal to the initial wager.

Surrender: A few betting houses will let players to surrender the hand they have been handed along with fifty percent of the original bet they made prior to the dealer looking at their hand. As a rule it's vital to ask the croupier for clarification on the black jack table rules or check out the rules area on the web betting house you are gambling on.

Insurance: When the dealers exposed card is an Ace gamblers have the chance to take out insurance. You will lay half of the original bet before the croupier looks at his cards; if the croupier has black jack you will come away with a win on the insurance bet but still lose the original bet. Regrettably if the dealer doesn't have chemin de fer the player loses the insurance. It's a chance but one that's absolutely worth it, if used as part of a smart strategy.

As soon as a competitor has stood or busted by going over 21 the dealer will show his or her cards and will go on to deal himself cards until 1 of the following events has happened: if he has achieved seventeen, a dealer won't typically draw another card because of the possibility of going bust, if they have drawn 21 or if they have busted.
