    Double Down on Soft 12

    I was looking at a new online blackjack game, and their basic strategy said to double down on a soft 12 against a 5 or 6. However, it also said to split Aces. I suppose it would be possible to have a soft 12 if you had a lot of Aces in your hand. Anybody ever hear of such a thing?

    What would be the other rules? 6D/8D? S17/H17? pen?

    Obviously don't have a clue.

    "However, it also said to split Aces."

    One for two!

    "I suppose it would be possible to have a soft 12 if you had a lot of Aces in your hand. Anybody ever hear of such a thing?"

    Even if such a hand were possible, which it isn't, since when can you double on more than two cards?

    The only hand I can think of as Soft 12 is AA and in that case it's always best to split.

    Here is their basic strategy chart. Rules are 6 deck, S17, and double down only on first two cards, shuffle after every hand. No surrender. They claim RTP is 99.68%, but I don't believe it is that high.

    Is it possible they mean "A-2" instead of "soft 12" ?

    Yes, I think that's very possible. To Midwest Player: how did they express the other soft hands?

    Make a print screen of the screen, crop the image and paste it in jpeg format. Otherwise, your drawing is not visible. But I'm sure it's a typo, don't fool yourself. There is correct A,2 vs...
