Use the basic strategy chart in this order:
1. If surrender is allowed, this takes priority over any other decision. If basic strategy calls for surrender, throw in the hand.
2. If you have a pair, determine whether or not basic strategy calls for a split.
3. If you have a possible double down hand, this play takes priority over hitting or standing. For instance, in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, you may double down on any two cards. So, with A7 (soft 18) against a dealer 5, your basic strategy play, as per the chart, is to double down. In Northern Nevada, where you may usually double down on 10 or 11 only, you should stand.
4. After determining that you do not want to surrender, split a pair, or double down, consult the "Stand" chart. Always hit a hard total of 11 or below. Always stand on a hard total of 17 or higher. For all stiff hands, hard 12 through 16, consult the basic strategy chart. Always hit soft 17 (A,6) or below. Always stand on soft 19 (A,8) or higher. With a soft 18 (A,7), consult the chart.Blackjack For Money Play Blackjack
