Blackjack is a card game in which there is sometimes no good or bad move, just different choices that lead to different opportunities. Nevertheless, there are some moves that you shouldn’t make under particular circumstances as they have proven to be disadvantageous. One of the most misplayed hands in blackjack is a soft eighteen hand, in particular, when the dealer shows a nine, a ten or an ace.In such cases, many players tend to believe that a total of eighteen is sufficient to beat the dealer and as a result, they choose to stand. While it is true that this total is a very decent one, in most cases, it is simply not enough. Moreover, bear in mind that it has been estimated that the average winning hand is 18.5 points. It should be noted that if you decide to hit, your chances of winning aren’t that high either but nevertheless, this is the lesser of the two evils.
