Basic Strategy-All those little ones
  • With basic strategy, when do you "stop" drawing cards with little ones... For example, Dealer has a 3 -- I have an A/3 and draw a 2 ( now have 6 or 16); I then get a 2 (now I have 6 or 16); I took another card and it was a 7...I now have 13 which is less than the 16 I started with! Do I stop now as you are supposed to hold with a 13 to a dealers 3? Should I have stopped with the soft 16? Any comments are greatly appreciated.
  • ...oops, meant 8 or 18 on that 2nd draw...
  • says to stand on A-7 unless the dealer has a 9-10-A showing. Your example above should have seen you stand when you got the two giving you the soft-18... Note that you hit a soft-16 or soft-17 no matter what unless you can double-down, but an A-2-2-2 would _still_ be hit according to BS...
