Which of the following is true if the dealer reveals a little card (2–6)?
When the dealer reveals cards worth 2 or 3, it is advised that the players proceed more cautiously.

If double after splitting (DAS) is permitted, you should only split a 4,4, when the dealer has a 5 or 6.
In general, whether doubling down after splitting is permitted determines whether to split a 4-4 hand. When playing with DAS, you should split fours when the dealer's up card is a four, five, or six. You have a high chance to double down if, after splitting, you hit a 5, 6, 7 or an Ace because the dealer is very likely to receive a stiff hand.
Which of the following plays IS NOT correct if the dealer reveals a 6?
The dealer has a 40% probability of busting when they have a 4 showing and a 40% chance when they have a 5 or 6, respectively. Because of this, you tend to double down more frequently when the dealer displays a 4, 5, or 6.
