For anyone more intimately familiar than I with blackjack strategy or probability, I have a question about a basic strategy table linked from this site (at www.blackjackinfo.com).
Referring to the table for "6 decks, H17, DAS, Late Surrender, Peek", I'm confused by one recommendation. It says to surrender a pair of 8s against a dealer A, but to hit a single 8 against a dealer A. Why don't the recommendations match? What's different about splitting and then playing two of the 8 vs. A hands?
