Blackjack Basic Strategy for Splitting Pairs of Threes

How to Play a Pair of 3's 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 Three's?

A pair of 3's is played just like a pair of 7's, and for similar reasons.

Split against a dealer 2 through 7, otherwise take a hit.

Reasoning

A total of 6 is going to likely wind up as a total of 16. (We're assuming we'll receive a ten.) That's a tough hand, but against a dealer 8 or higher, we're in trouble anyway, so we might as well NOT put more money in the pot.

Against a dealer hand of 12 through 17 (again, assuming that we've got a 10 in the hole), we've got a pretty good shot at either getting a dealer bust, or in the case of the 17, outdrawing the dealer.
