3 blackjack basic strategy rules for standing on hard hands:
- Always STAND on 17 or higher
- STAND on 12 or higher vs. dealer 6 or below, except
- HIT 12 vs. dealer 2 or 3
The chart below is a summary of the above 3 rules. You read this chart by looking at the column for the dealer upcard and the row for your hand total. For instance, if the dealer has a 6 and you have a 12 the chart indicates S for Stand. If the dealer has a 7 and you have a 16 the chart indicates H for Hit.
