when 15 vs 10,
then hit should be best instead of surrender.
Macau has early surrender, and it is better to surrender on 88vs 10, 14vs 10 and 15 vs 10 with early surrender. You are calculating for late surrender rule.
By the way, with late surrender (6 decks, S17)
8-7 vs 10 Hit = - 0.4998
9-6 vs 10 Hit = - 0.5053
10-5 vs 10 Hit = - 0.5039
6-6-3 vs 10 hit = - 0.5138
So, it is usually better to late surrender on 15 vs 10, but when your 15 is an 8-7, it is slightly better to hit.
but there is a difference in strategy compared to early or late surrender...Quote: tomchina123
...by surrender, we lose 50%. so no difference from early or later...
thanks for the interest in talking about this.
here i copy more again from this link:
''''Australian blackjack is played much the same way as in the rest of the world. As in Europe and Asia, the dealer does not take a hole card in Australia. If the player doubles and/or splits, and the dealer gets a blackjack, then what happens next in Australia depends on the particular casino. There are four for possibilities for this hole-card rule, as follows:
OBO (Dealer takes original bets only): Under this rule, the dealer will take the player's original bet only, regardless of what the player did. The player may split and/or double under this rule, without fear of losing more than the initial bet. Mathematically speaking, this is equivalent to the American rule where the dealer peeks for blackjack. My main blackjack page is based on the U.S. rules.
if it is equivalent to the American rule where the dealer peeks for blackjack, in USA, 88VS10, split, why not split?
