Think you know your basic blackjack strategy like the back of your hand? We’ve created a simple quiz here so you can put your knowledge to the test and determine whether you truly know perfect basic strategy.
For the purpose of this test, we are going to use common rules which are:
Good luck and try not to cheat by looking at any strategy chart!
correct basic strategy for 15 on 3 would be stand… It’s a basic strategy site that doesn’t play basic strategy. I know I was supposed to get 20/20. I got 13/20.
You are wrong. On soft 15 vs 3 you hit. You are thinking of a hard 15.
I would also have chosen the following hands:
4-4 vs 5
A-10 vs A even money or stand?
7-4 vs A
5-4 vs 2
A-7 vs 2
A-7 vs 9
A-5 vs 3
9-9 vs 7
4-4 vs 4
Lol this website is wrong. It doesn’t follow basic strategy
I thought it was 6 and 4 on the 17 question, so i chose double but it was a hard 9 and the dealer showed 7. So it’s not a double and i know that
got 20 out of 20
20 out of 20, On another practice quiz, I have 100 out of 100. My problem is I have worked at card counting, but I ALWAYS get distracted then lose the count. I am a newbie at this. I need to know when NOT to utilize Basic Strategie and go with the count, That is if I don’t lose my way. Maybe a different method? I am 76 years of age and card counting is difficult for me. I have lost once out of 10 sessions at the casino, I was not card counting at those sessions.
19 out of 20… It was #20 that I missed and I know better!
The quiz needs to state how the dealer deals the dealer getting with a BJ. The quiz assumes the dealer declares it straight away. Most online BJ games dont, they let player play first then the dealer declares it. So if player doubles or splits, the player loses that extra bet too.
Double 11 against 10 and split 8s against 10, bring your money and come play with me
Oh oops, I got it backwards. The quiz is right, I said it wrong, and I picked the wrong button by accident, derp lol
According to what I’ve learned, my basic strategy chart AND YOUR OWN, you don’t split (9,9) against an 8. Fix your quiz.
Correct BS for 9,9 vs. 8 is to split. Split nines against everything except 7, 10, or A.
Nope. That’s right.

Join the discussion…your wrong split
Great quiz, it’s quick but has all of those close decisions that make the difference between almost perfect play and average.
No it doesn’t. It didn’t even have 16 against 10 and that’s the most common close decision you’ll ever see. And most of them weren’t close decisions at all. Like soft 17 against 7? There’s no count high enough or low enough to justify anything other than hitting. I’ll tell you, 16 against 7 is NOT a close decision. 7.68. You stand only if truecount>=7.68. That’s super high. Lots of people just THINK they should stand on 16 against 7 because they’re boneheads, they don’t realize that it’s much worse to stand on 16 against 7 than it is against a 10, and are actually more likely to hit on 16 against 10 than against a 7. The only “close decisions” on the quiz were 9 against 2 and 12 against 3. Each of which has a decision threshold of nearly exactly truecount=0.9.
In most cases, a multiple hand of 16 vs dealer 10 is a stand, but there are exceptions where you would hit, examples: 10-3-3, 10-2-2-2, 6-6-4 all hit.
If your 16 is composed of 5 cards or more, stand. If your 16 contains a 6 it’s usually a hit except 6-5-5. Close call is 10-4-2 (stand in a six-deck shoe but hit in an 8-deck shoe).
Other notable exceptions in a s17 game: A-2-2-3 and A-3-3-A stand against dealer Ace.
WHAT IS MY SCORE ON THE ABOVE QUIZ?
Your score is shown when you complete the quiz. Did you answer every question?
No results for me either
Doh sorry about that. Does it show you any error message? Can you try again? I’ve changed a couple things….hopefully should be working correctly now
Working now thx!
