Stiff

Home > Glossary > Stiff

There is both a stiff hand and a stiff card and both variants are not very positive for the player. A stiff hand is a hand whose value is between 12 and 16. With this hand, you have a bad chance of winning. With one more card, there is a danger of overstepping the 21 points and if you stand still, the dealer can beat your own hand very easily.

A stiff card is the open card of the dealer if it has a value between 2 and 6. The second card, in particular, depends on whether the stiff card was good or bad for the dealer. Unlike the player, however, the dealer must adhere to strict rules regarding the drawing of additional cards. As a rule, the dealer must draw another card below 17 points and he will be equal to or above it.
