Hi,

can any1 tell me how the house edge changes for blackjack if you can only split aces (only 1 card after this), and other same cards can never be split?
edit: i am not 100% if this is the right forum section, but I didnt find a better one for it^^

The first question that crossed my mind was:
Where the hell are you playing that they only allow you to split aces?

I want to know so I can remember to NEVER play there.

sry, but this doesent help, I want to have a value for splitting only allowed for aces, so for example if you got two 8's you cant split.
What kind of cockeyed BJ is this? I've never heard of such a thing, I am sure it is not very player-friendly. Is there a progressive pot or something to even things out for the player? Maybe BJ pays 4:1 or such?

What about doubling down, etc? Can you provide a link to the rules and the number of decks?

It is just theory, but I need to know it. Sry, but I'm not going to tell you, why.
Would be very nice if some math genious can help me anyway ;)
Big thanks in advance!

You will turn off a lot of people in this forum if you aren't going to be forward with such an oddball question...

I don't mean to be rude, but if you are going to ask people such a weird question, let them know why - it makes perfect sense for people to ponder your motives when you ask such an ill-sensed question.

Not to be rude, but if you're thinking of creating a flavor of BJ for casinos, don't bother...nobody in their right mind would play it :)

I dont want to go in detail why I need to know this, sry.
I already got the answer at another forum, so this thread can be closed/deleted.
