When do you hit your 12s?

Always? [ 1 ]  [12.50%]
Dealer 2, ace, or 7 through 10? [ 3 ]  [37.50%]
All the above plus dealer 3? [ 2 ]  [25.00%]
Above plus double down against dealer 5 or six? [ 2 ]  [25.00%]

I'm bad about hitting 12s against just about any dealer card that isn't a 4, 5, or 6, though I sometimes don't hit against a 3.  I'll frequently double against a 5 or 6.

A lot of players would like to kill me for it (I usually play third) when it doesn't work out.

How do you usually play those 'dealer 10s'?

    I'm pretty agressive on 12's, unless the dealer has a 4, 5, or 6 showing.

      Playing them thataway seems to work fairly well for me, also.

        You hit 12 against a dealer's 2 or 3.  The dealer's 2 is called the "Dealer's Ace", because it has so much potential.  You will bust a 12 31% of the time, so you will not bust 69% of the time.  It's a slam dunk.

          I'll mainly follow with basic strategy. However, I like to stand on 12 when dealer shows a 6 or less [even if it's a 2 or 3]. My vote is to hit if Dealer shows a 7, 8, 9, 10, or Ace. If the Dealer was showing a 3, what are the chances I'll bust? What are the chances I won't bust?
