Question #5 – Blackjack Test
5. When holding a soft 18 should you hit or stand when the dealer is showing a 9, 10, or Ace?
Answer: Always hit a soft 18 vs. a dealer’s 9, 10, or Ace
An 18 is going to lose more often than it wins when the dealer’s up card is a 9, 10 or Ace. When you have a soft 18 you can hit without fear of busting and that is exactly what you should do. If the dealer is showing a 2,7, or 8 you should stand with your soft 18. If the dealer is showing a 3,4,5, or 6 you should double down with your soft 18.
