How to Play Soft 18 in Blackjack?

By Henry Tamburin PH.D.

One of the hands that blackjack players often misplay is soft 18. This is a hand that totals 18 and contains an ace counted as 11. Examples of soft 18 hands are: Ace, 7 or Ace, 3, 4.

The reason the above hands are classified as “soft” 18 is because the strategy for playing them is different from a hand that totals 18 and that either doesn’t contain an Ace (e.g., 10-8), or, if an Ace is present, it is counted as 1 (e.g., 5-9-A-3). (These are known as “hard” 18 hands.)
