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

You are probably correct although I can imagine some high counts might make it correct.

I heard about a double-exposure variant and analysed it (sadly I never got to see it for real) where it was correct to split pictures. It made quite a difference to HE whether you could split different valued cards and a small difference on the number of resplits allowed. This is how I found out my local casino forbids players doubling on 21 after splitting pictures.

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!



Link for those that need it instead of the above:

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 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.



I know my thread wandered off a bit in different directions. But is it correct that if you can split 3 times in total you're pretty much covered as far as playing with strategy goes and everything above is overkill?

Do you understand that some splits are offensive, letting you win more, while others are defensive, designed to help you lose less.
Not all splits are equal.

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



It was on one single hand. I was dealt a pair of 8's and every time I split and resplit there would be at least one new pair of 8's. One hand became 9 hands. In the UK unlimited resplits is a standard rule.
