Black Jack ABC’s – Part 1

The basic concept of the game is to be dealt cards adding up to twenty-one. Every competitor is dealt two cards. When a player is dealt a 9 or lower value card and an Ace they’ve been handed a soft hand. When the player is dealt no Ace it is called as a hard hand. Once the cards have been handed to all players at the table, which includes the dealer, every gambler is provided the chance to make one of six actions:

Requesting another card (Hit): When a black jack player announces hit me the dealer will give him another card, if the addition of that card causes the total greater than 21 the blackjack player will have busted and be excluded from the game, if the card pushes the value of the hand to twenty one the player is the winner and if the total hasn’t yet reached 21 they’re still in the game.

Keeping the hand you’ve been given: If a blackjack player is satisfied with the cards they will hold. Once this has happened the croupier will reveal his/her cards and the gambler who has gotten twenty one or the closet to twenty-one will come away with a win.

Doubling Down: A player might request to double down which doubles the bet they have made. Once you have taken this procedure you can only receive 1 additional card. The details of doubling down are normally specified by the table or betting house rules so prior to wagering make certain you’re familiar with the house game rules. If you are competing at a net betting house this is normally quite easy.
