There is a popular game called “Can You Split 10?” The answer is yes, but it’s not a sure thing. The basic strategy for this game is to divide 10 cards by selecting two cards and holding on to those two cards.
If the first card is a ten, then the player can either keep the card or split it between the two hands. If the first card is a king, then the player can either keep the card or discard one of the other nine cards and take the king as new second card.
If the player splits 10 cards then they have a 50/50 chance of winning. However, if they only have two cards then they have a 99% chance of winning.
So, if you’re playing Can You Split 10? and you have only two cards, then it’s best to discard one of them and take the king as your new second card.
