Blackjack Basic Strategy for Splitting Pairs of Aces

How to Play a Pair of Aces in Blackjack

Hard hands: Hard 8 or less - Hard 9 - Hard 10 - Hard 11 - Hard 12 - Hard 13 - 16 - Hard 17 to 21

Soft hands: Soft 13 - 14 - Soft 15 - 16 - Soft 17 - Soft 18 - Soft 19 to 21

Splitting pairs: Aces - 2's - 3's - 4's - 5's - 6's - 7's - 8's - 9's - 10's

Should You Split Aces?

Yes. Every time.

Reasoning

Almost all basic strategy assumptions begin with the premise that you'll be dealt a ten when you take a hit. By splitting aces, you take a mediocre hand (soft 12), and turn it into two potential blackjacks.

A pair of aces is one of the best hands you can hope for while playing blackjack. It's easy to play and has a great positive expected value.
