28 Aug 09 Online Blackjack in Hole Care Rule Variations

In Europe and America the blackjack game it always played in the casinos. Therefore the game became popularly involved in different regions. There are three regions it can identified the different sets of rules. Two are in the United States these are Las Vegas and the Atlantic City. The third region is Europe. The Microgaming and Crptologic offer all versions in their online casinos. And the rules of these three regions differ in a number of ways. Important differences are how the dealer handles a hand value of 17, rules for splitting and doubling and how the hole card is treated. The dealer’s of face down it is called the hole card. There are two American variants of blackjack if the dealer deals himself with two cards, the face up and the one is face down. And the hole comes into play before the players make their moves. Most of the European version usually the face down card is not dealt at all. Hence this version is known as a ‘no hole variation. The other once card is dealt but never comes into play till all the players have made their moves. This version is also effectively a no hole variation. And the two American versions no hole card games come into play The dealer checks their hole card and if it is an ace and then it will reveal the blackjack. In case the face up card is ten value and the players cannot buy insurance. if the dealer face up card is an ace or a ten value card.

If the dealer has not been dealt a hole card he will deal the second card face up. Was I correct in my assumption about this “no hole card” rule? If so, what is the house’s percentage resulting from this? Also, as a side comment, I noticed that the two “good” casinos were very crowded, while in the other casinos the blackjack tables were empty. Las Vegas and the Atlantic City blackjack rules differ in other respects were same for the hole card. When card face up is an ace the dealer must ask the players to place the insurance if they want to. They must to check and the blackjack, if the dealer has blackjack and the players were not sure to lose their original wagers. For those players who insured will end up quits. And the player who insured to lose their insurance wager and the players start making their moves In European blackjack if the dealer’s face up card is an ace, he will ask the players if they want to insure. Then the players start making their moves in turn. If the dealer has been dealt a hole card he will turn it over after all the players are standing or bust

In European blackjack the player takes the decision to split or double without the dealer checking for with consecutively dealt cards than with nonconsecutive cards? I once had this question posed to me from the opposite perspective by a European player who was familiar with the typical European no-hole-card dealing procedure. He felt that the nonconsecutive cards taken by dealers in American casinos provided a house advantage. His “instincts” were the exact opposite of his American counterpart. He was sure that the consecutive cards taken by European dealers in completing their hands made it more likely for them to bust. We can further reduce this problem by noting that it’s really a question of whether or not the second consecutive card is lower than a randomly chosen card. So, to speed up our empirical test, all we have to do is shuffle a deck of cards then compare the value of the second card from the top with the value of a randomly chosen card from the pack. In no time at all, this exercise will seem futile. Since the cards have been shuffled, both cards, in fact, are random.

The Aruba “no hole card” rule does, however, differ slightly from both the standard European version, and the American version. The question arises what difference does the hole card or no hole card make to the player. The player may want to make additional wagers in splitting or doubling after the initial cards are dealt. In the American games the player takes this decision after the dealer checks for blackjack. If the dealer has a blackjack then the player loses immediately and will not split or double and therefore does not lose the additional amount. In European blackjack the player takes the decision to split or double without the dealer checking for blackjack. If the dealer eventually has a blackjack then the player loses the amount wagered on the split or double moves. Therefore the American variants of Las Vegas and Atlantic City offer an advantage as far as the hole card rule is concerned. Players wagering on European blackjack should be less aggressive in their split.
