You are probably best to read our article on Splitting before reading this section as you will then understand all aspects of splitting a hand and be able to get your head around re-splitting!
The game play rules of every different Blackjack variant will tell you whether you can re-split a hand and it is worth pointing out that by doing so you will be required to place another wager which is equal too your initial bet onto a re-split hand.
With this in mind you should always ensure you have enough bankroll in reserve to enable you to re-split a hand, if you don't then you run the risk of having a good betting opportunity go bad due to you having not enough funds to make the best strategic move, so the motto is before you sit down to play make sure your bankroll can handle every possible betting outcome.
One online Blackjack game that allows you to re-split is Microgamings Bonus Blackjack variant, this allows you to re-split a hand 2 times, and thus your initial hand could now become 4 different hands. Aces however can only be split once.
Another Microgaming game that allows you to re-split is Double Exposure Blackjack which also allows you to see the Dealers cards at all times. If you are looking for a great Blackjack game full of ups and downs then make sure you checkout this variant.
