Hit/resplit split acesAfter splitting aces, the common rule is that only one card will be dealt to each ace; the player cannot split, double, or take another hit on either hand.

Allowing the player to hit hands resulting from split aces reduces the house edge by about 0.13%; allowing resplitting of aces reduces house edge by about 0.03%.
