    Dealer shows 2, 3,4,5 or 6 and I have 12. Is it mathematicaly smart for me to stay and let dealer bust? I hate doing it, but pressure from the table and etiquette force me to stay. Feels like the wrong decision sometimes. Especially vs 2-4.

    I only play two deck pitch. Sometimes they are hard to find, but I will not play unless I can find a table like that. Sometimes you have to go into the higher limit parts.
    If the dealer shows a 3, 4, 5 or 6, I will stay on a 12. I will hit a 12 vs. a 12. Most expect you to stay if the dealer has a 3-6 up.
    However, I try try to count the cards with only two decks being used, but that will normally only affect the size of your starting bet.

    This is a very useful piece of information, especially for such a beginner like me. I started playing blackjack on mr.bet not long ago, so I need to improve my skills. I'm really glad that I've found this thread as it has helped me to understand some things about this game. So, thanks for sharing your experience, guys!
