How To Know When To Hit On 16

Probably the worst situation to be in at the blackjack table is to be dealt a 16 while the dealer has a 7 or higher showing. Blackjack charts from all across the world say to hit the 16 when the dealer is showing a 7 or higher, even surrendering in some situations. If you want to beat the casino, you’re going to have to do better than that. So let me share with you one of my key winning blackjack plays…

Never hit your 16.

You say, “but I can’t beat the dealer’s 20 with my 16!”

And you’re right.

But you definitely can’t beat the dealer if you’ve busted out. And you’ll lose nearly 70% of the time when you hit your 16.

Here’s the statistics. If you hit on your 16, you’ll win 25.23% of the time, push 5.46% of the time, and you will lose 69.31% of the time. That’s a net loss of 44.08% when you hit your 16.

If you stand on your 16, you’ll win 29.01% of the time, push 0%, and lose 70.99% of the time. This is a net loss of 41.98% — so by standing on your 16, you’ll be cutting your losses by 2.1%!

In the situation where you are dealt a 16, you have to realize that you’re probably going to lose, and you need to simply deal with that fact.

You need to stand on the 16 to give yourself the greatest chance of not losing.

Be patient, because you’ll make your money at the blackjack table with the better hands that you’re dealt…
