    when playing single or double deck BJ, and you have a sufficiently low two card starting position that you find yourself at <17 after 4 card total...do you take the fifth card or do you believe that in such a situation you are doomed to pull a high card and bust?

    Considering 5 card Charlie is never offered anymore, I would do what basic strategy says unless you're counting.

    What tring said... unless the hand you're talking about is a hard-16, that contains a 4 or 5, and the dealer's upcard is a 10. Then, stand.

    If you're counting, and the 4-card less-than-17, but higher than 12 hand that you have leaves the count at +2 or higher (on the DD game), and half or more of the available cards have been dealt, I would stand.

    What the above two posts said. I'd also add that even if you're not counting try to sit at third base to get a general overall idea of what has been played that round.
