Wondering if anyone knows the % of time you start with each hand value in Blackjack:
Looking for hard and soft hands for each specific total 2-20. For example Blackjack is 4.8%, but otherwise I've only seen summary of bust/ non-bust / decision. I need to know the chance of each individual starting hand. I appreciate the help!

As to doing the actual calculations, that would be a nice math challenge

Will the answer be used in a new game or a side bet ?

So that means I will have 18-21 around 25 % of the time and 17 and below around 75 % of the time, wow !
