Hi guys, canít figure out the house edge/basic strategy for chumba casinos blackjack. Canít find a calculator online to plug in all the rules either. Wondering if anyone has the strategy or house edge handy/is up to calculate it as the rules are unlike other games Iíve seen.
6 decks shuffled after every hand.
Blackjacks 3-2.
Only double on 9 thru 11.
Dealer stands on soft 17.
Double after split allowed.
Resplit up to 4 hands including aces.
Player can hit split aces.
Player loses full play value against blackjack. The dealers first 2 cards is dealt to the dealer before the players start to act. (Is this the European rule?)

Seriously? That is a very poor response from a forum dedicated, among other things, to helping people with just these sorts of issues.

This calculator can handle the OPís variation.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Thanks for this! I knew this existed somewhere but couldnít find it in google. I found one that generated basic strategy on wizard of odds but it didnít have all the rules listed here.

Apart from being able to hit Aces and split 4s, this would have been the old rules in the UK, so that's the table you could use for strategy. I'm not sure whether you'd split Aces vs Ace if you could hit, my guess would be you would as there's a fair chance of one of them becoming a 21, and you can hit bad hands. You wouldn't split 8s nor double 11s vs A/X.

btw European rule is the dealer doesn't check for BJ. In the UK they don't even deal the second card until after everyone has finished.
