Playing blackjack

  • In blackjack, your objective is to be able to beat the dealer. For you to beat the dealer, you need to get cards which get you closer to 21 but not over that. While ensuring that you don’t go over 21, you will need at the same time have to outscore the dealer or ensure that you get him to go bust. 
  • For the number of cards, the value is normally the number on it. The face cards are normally counted at 10. Ace is counted as either 1 or 11. If the Ace happens to place you at 21, you can count it as 1 or else you stick to 11. 
  • The value of a hand is normally the total of all the individual cards value, with the highest hand being referred to as blackjack and it contains an ace and any other card which has a value of 10. The blackjack card outranks any other hand which has a value of 21.
  • Once everyone has placed their bets, the dealer will have to deal two cards to each player and to himself. Each of the player’s cards is dealt face up. Once the cards from the dealer are face up, and the rest of the cards will be face down. The face-down card is normally referred to as a hole card. 
  • After the cards are dealt, the player to the left of the dealer will begin to play. If you have a feeling that getting additional cards will get you to go closer to 21, then you can ask to be allowed to draw other cards with a hit. In case you go over 21, then you are bust. If you don’t want any more cards to be drawn, you can stand. You have the liberty to double your bet and you will be able to get one or more card but then, you will get no additional ones after that. 
  • If you have two 10 point cards or a pair, you are at liberty to separate your cards into two different hands. When you double the bet, you can then play each of the hands. You should always remember that each ace is only able to get one point if you are trying to split it. If you get an ace and a 10 after the split, then it will be 21, but not a blackjack.
