Is this private blackjack game beatable and for how much?

Few guys and I play a dealers choice 1-3 spread limit card game every week. When the main game is over, many times one of the guys will start dealing blackjack to us.

  • Single shoe

  • Surrender allowed

  • Doubling allowed

  • Multiple splits allowed

  • BJ pays 3-2

  • Dealer hits until 17 (hard or soft)

  • Dealer deals until the 2nd to last card (won’t play the bottom card as we don’t have a card blocker

  • Usually allows bets from $2-$20, most of the time everyone just bets $20. Will allow more sometimes if I ask before the deal (Permission to bet $40? Sure.)

Any specific strategy or cheat sheet I should be using for this? Anything I should specifically be counting? I could do a basic +/- count and maybe keep track of aces too.

Is this game beatable, and for how much in the long run?
