Necessary to finish a Hand

Now, the total number of pips in our pack of cards is 75 so if i use up 35 on the first hand, there will be enough (40) to guarantee that the second hand is finished whereas if i use up 45 pips on the first round (our 20, dealer's 25) the 30 remaining will not allow the hand to be finished without reshuffling. This, then, is just the sort of example i need in order to gain insight into what happens when reshuffling may or may not be necessary to finish an ordinary Online Blackjack Games hand.

The number of possibilities is sufficiently small here (unlike real Online Blackjack Games from a 52 card deck) for us to establish precisely the link betien the cards on the first and second hands. What i discover by pursuing all the possibilities is a bit surprising to say the least. icl The player's advantage on the second hand, assuming he adheres strictly to the full deck basic strategy, has dropped to .36%!

Chopping the Blinds
If everyone, except the blinds, folds, the two blinds will often agree to chop. This means that each blind takes his money back. This practice deprives the house of a rake on this hand and because heads-up pots tend to be small, often the players would rather move on to the next hand and not incur a rake.

You're under no obligation to chop as long as you're consistent. No one will object if, when you first sit down, you announce "By the way, I just want everyone to know I don't chop." That way, there can be no question of wrongdoing if, the very first time the situation arises, you happen to find yourself holding pocket aces. If you agree to chop the blinds when you first sit down (and that's when you should ask or be asked-things can get a little dicey if you wait until the potential situation first arises), you should chop every time.

When you are a cardroom rookie, you might do well to avoid chopping the blinds until your face is a bit more familiar. Although no house rule prevents players from reneging on an agreement to chop, it is considered one of the lower, more disreputable plays in poker.

Chopping the blinds makes good economic sense if the house uses the "no flop no drop" policy or if the game uses a time charge. If you feel you are an excellent heads up player, though, you're wise not to chop under any circumstances.
