ztomsk Posted October 5, 2012 Report Share Posted October 5, 2012 Ellis,I have a quick question on NBJ card play I have been wondering about.I know this is a really basic question, but I just make sure Iâ€™m thinking in the right way. As an example: Ok the game is clumped and you are playing First Base. The dealer up card is a 10. The cards leading up to and the 3rd base playerâ€™s second card are high â€“ this indicates that the hole card read is high so use the variable strategy chart. The chart says to stand with 15 and 16 if highs are running, which makes perfect sense to avoid breaking. But doesnâ€™t this hand also indicate that the dealer probably has an 18, 19, or 20 and by not hitting you are giving the dealer the win? I guess itâ€™s just a bad situation and there is not much you can do about it to turn it into a win. I did notice while playing this scenario a bunch of times that usually the dealer did in fact have that 20 and if I hit I would have busted anyway. Is this a hand where you should surrender?On a side note I was wondering if the WCB manual has different card play strategies or is it more for theory and polishing your NBJ game.THANKS Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
