Is there a casino anywhere where the surrender rule is actually *posted*? I always have to ask. That's the surest sign it's a good bet at times for the player. (Similarly, some casinos don't post their craps odds anywhere, and none have wording on the felt to tell you where the odds bet goes.)

I agree that not hitting soft 18 vs 9, 10, and ace is the most common error. And a big pet peeve of many players is players' hitting soft 18. (I always listen for this when I'm hitting soft 18, "You have eighteen!")

Another common player error is standing on soft 17.

I was actually surprised the other day when a guy hit A7 vs 10 and on the very next hand hit 12 vs 3.

Why does that surprise you?

Both are correct according to the strategy card I carry.

A costly error I have seen often is forgetting the double down option after splitting non-A's. Say 11 total after second card against dealer six. Maybe they don't know it's allowed.

Actually, in most casinos, it isn't allowed. Anyone who normally played in a casino that didn't allow it would probably not even realize it if it WAS allowed.

I don't count standing 16v10 to be an error, it's the right move for long 16, it's the right move at ever-so-slightly positive count, so it's often just the right play by default.
Doubling 10v10 is also often the right play, depending on the rules and count.

Treating 18 as a great hand is perhaps the most common, but followed closely by passive play against 7-8 cards, which often includes even standing on 15v7.
