If your first two game cards are two of a kind, then you can split this hand into two hands. In this both the cards are taken as the main game card of the hand. After this you will have to place another bet of equivalent value. Generally you can re-split until two or three times while another splitting chance arises. To indicate that you want to split you will have to place another wager equal in worth for the subsequent hand as well. Split 8's and Aces always and never split fives or fours. If the dealer's up card is 6 or lower then split every other pair. While playing online do not take insurance. Expert card counters take the chance of placing smart insurance bets once the deck has many tens, but regular players should decline all the time.
