When it is best to surrender?

You should take advantage of the surrender option only when you know that the outcome of your hand will be most likely a loss for you. For instance, if your hand’s total is sixteen and the dealer has a jack. In this case your best move will be to forfeit half of your bet so that you can withdraw from the game with some money in a situation in which you were almost certainly bound to lose.However, you shouldn’t surrender every time you have disadvantageous cards as this will cause you to lose more money in the long term than if you actually played the hand.
