Standing a soft-12 against a dealer six?



haha nope, that's actually a lot better decision than your last guess.

Split 10s against dealer 10, then keep splitting if you get another 10 up to the maximum hands allowed, and double any hands that your didn't get a 10 or the maximum hands allowed are reached.

Nope, and the question was for a single decision anyway.

You didn't say what you would do with the hands. Standing would be pretty bad but would it be worse than doubling a hard 20?

Ok so the worst SINGLE play would be to get the most money out at a time, while busting yourself. By this logic doubling a hard 20 is definitely the single play that gets most money on the table while busting yourself. Now the question is against what dealer card? Well in case you caught an Ace with your double and the dealer has to make a 21 to tie it, so the dealer card should be the card that most likely to make a 21. IIRC, that card (in a S17 game) would be a 10.

TLDR: double hard 20 vs dealer 10

Might be doubling a 20 against an 8.
