Question #8 – Blackjack Test
8. When holding a hard 16 and the dealer is showing a 7 should you hit or stand?
Answer: Always hit a 16 against a dealer’s 7.
When a dealer starts with a 7 they will make 17 or better 74% of the time. If you stand on 16 you are hoping for the dealer to bust but that will only happen 26% of the time. By hitting your 16 you are still going to lose more than you are going to win but you will lose less in the long run than you will by standing. The casino wants you to be afraid to hit 16. Don’t be afraid anymore. Just hit it!
