Wich establishment online or physical allows a hand to be split the most times? I've heard when re-splitting is allowed 4 total hands in play is not uncommon but that would make it uneven? If you split 22 and get 2-2 on each hand, you split those and get 2-2 again… you've split 3 times now. So only one of your remaining hands you can split the other you will have to do a regular hit?


Or maybe it doesn't even matter as a whole because splitting more than 4 times is so unlikely to happen anyway? Is being able to split both resulting hands again from a split fine even enough as it is?

4 total hands is what I've known mostly, with the option to double down on any of them, so a total of up to 8 bets.
I have seen a video from a foreign country where one player was splitting 10's for $100+ a hand and he wound up with near 25 hands before the dealer took his own card.

In the UK you are almost always allowed unlimited splits - this is where the freebet idea came from, to limit your downside by leave in the upside.

I'm in the UK and have resplit 8's before until I have 9 hands on the table - it gets very messy so unless the dealer busts it's important to make sure you're paid correctly!

Yes but not on one single hand. If you play multiple bets and wind up with 9 hands it's not the same thing.

Ok, I've been putting this off too long. Here is my favorite table game YouTube of all time. If you look closely at the felt, you can see the name of this casino. You can also see, as the camera swings, there are video gaming machines behind the dealer, and the whole thing has the feel of a real event.

But if anyone needs a lift to their day, this is the video. Enjoy!

If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Lol it was funny the way he was shouting stuff in Spanish but he split a 20 vs 6 and probably wasn't counting cards? By following basic strategy how much splitting would you need the rules to allow for it to realistically make an impact? If you split and then need to split both those hands that's four cards of the same value having come in a row does it becomes pointless beyond that? Getting 5, 6 of the same card in a row would almost never happen anyway.

I've seen unlimited before.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I posted the video in response to the specific question from the OP. I think it was 17 splits, someone said, on this hand? I would have to guess this casino allows unlimited splits.

I don't think it would be BS to EVER split tens, except in very specific situations while counting.

Unlimited in the UK with DAS. Those are real sh1t ot bust hands that make or break the night. Certainly make for excitement.
If you are enjoying the game, you're already winning.
