Doubling Down in Blackjack

 
 

As you plan the game of blackjack, there are several things to keep in mind, including which tables are the best to play at. Online, you still have plenty of options for casino play, even if it is virtually. As you look for the right table to play at, one thing to look for is a table that allows you to double down.

Doubling down is the practice of doubling your bet and receiving one additional card when you expect that you will beat the dealer by doing so. Of course, this increases the amount you can lose, but it also allows you to win more. This is one of the best advantages for the blackjack player. Doubling with a 10 against a 9 or lower and with any hand of 11 makes sense. So long as the rules allow for it, double with 9 or whenever you have soft hands of 13 through 17 against the numbers 4, 5, or 6.
