Doubling Down Strategy
Doubling down allows you to put more money on the table when the odds of winning are good, and you should always bet the maximum amount allowed in these situations. Doubling down should only be done when the player has a better chance of winning than the dealer, or when you stand to earn more profit by doubling down than by hitting the hand.

Casinos have different rules for doubling down; usually you can only double down after you receive your initial two cards and before you draw a third card, but some casinos only allow the option on certain hand values (usually 9, 10 or 11).

Hard Hand Rules for Doubling Down
Double down when:

Player has hard 11 and the dealer is showing 2 through 10.
Player has hard 10 and the dealer is showing 2 through 9.
Player has hard 9 and the dealer is showing 3 through 6.
Soft Hand Rules for Doubling Down
Double down when:

Player has (A, 6) or (A, 7) and the dealer is showing 3 through 6.
Player has (A, 4) or (A, 5) and the dealer is showing 4 through 6.
Player has (A, 2) or (A, 3) and the dealer is showing 5 or 6.
Splitting Pairs Strategy
Some players split all pairs regardless of the pair value - this is not a smart strategy. You should never split a pair of tens or a pair of fives. With two tens you have a total of 20 which is more than likely to be a winning hand, while a pair of fives total 10 and you have a better chance of drawing a 10 than any other value for a win. You should always split Aces and eights. Again you have a better chance of drawing a card worth 10 than any other and then you have either 21 (for Aces) or 18 (for eights) - both are hard for the dealer to beat.

All other splitting decisions are made depending on the dealer's face-up card in general split when the dealer is showing a low value face-up card. Split when:

Player has a pair of 2's, 3's or 7,s and the dealer is showing 2 through 7.
Player has a pair of 4's and the dealer is showing 5 or 6.
Player has a pair of 6's and the dealer is showing 2 through 6.
Player has a pair of 9's and the dealer is showing 2 through 6, 8 or 9. - If the dealer is showing a 7 and you assume he/she has a hole card worth 10 then your 18 will beat it so you don't split.
