One rule in particular that many have a hard time understanding is the hitting of stiff hands. For many, it's particularly difficult to hit a hard 16. Since the player has such a great chance of busting, it's easy to balk at taking a hit, especially if the dealer has a 7 showing. The dealer's 7 is not that strong, they reason, so why risk busting. The ulterior motive, of course, is to last longer. "You stay, you play," right? In fact, this strategy will cause them to play less overall because they increase their loss rate.
To counter this disadvantage, the player has several potential advantages over the dealer: 1. The player receives a payment of 3 to 2 for naturals (the dealer is "paid" only 1 to 1 for his naturals). 2. The player is allowed to play his hand as he wishes (the dealer must hit or stand according to house rules). 3. The player can split two equally valued cards (the dealer cannot). 4. The player can double down (the dealer cannot). 5. The player can take insurance (the dealer cannot). 6. The player can, in some casinos, surrender his hand (the dealer cannot).
At an average of about 3 cards per hand and a total of 5-6 hands per round (4 or 5 players plus a dealer), roughly 36 cards are typically dealt out after two rounds. However, if fewer cards have been dealt out and the dealer has not reached the cut card, another round will be dealt. What are the circumstances under which fewer cards will be dealt? Typically, it's a succession of hands in which a lot of high cards appear. This causes the average number of cards-per-hand to be less than three. So, the dealer preferentially deals out an extra round when the high cards have already been played!
