Blackjack Basic Strategy for Splitting Pairs of Twos

How to Play a Pair of Deuces 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 Two's?

The same strategy for pairs of threes and sevens also applies to two's.

Split the two's versus a dealer two through seven, and hit the two's versus a dealer eight or better.

Reasoning

We assume the dealer has a ten in the hole. If the dealer's total is 12 through 17, and we wind up with a 14, then we have a good chance of the dealer busting on the 12 through 16, and we have a good chance of outdrawing the dealer if she has a 17.

And if the dealer has an eight or better, the chances are really way in her favor, so we shouldn't put additional money in action.
