Twenty-One ABC’s – Part One

The basic premise of the game is to be handed cards adding up to 21. Every gambler is handed 2 cards. When a blackjack player is dealt a 9 or lower value card and an Ace they have been given a soft hand. When the black jack player is dealt no Ace it is called as a hard hand. Once the cards have been handed to all players at the blackjack table, including the dealer, every gambler is given the opportunity to make one of six decisions:

Taking another card (Hit): When a gambler announces hit me the dealer will deal them another card, if the addition of that card makes the value of the hand to exceed twenty-one the gambler will have busted and that is the end of the game, if the card pushes the total to twenty-one the blackjack player wins and if the total hasn’t yet achieved twenty-one they are still in the game.

Keeping the hand you have been given: If a black jack player is satisfied with the cards they will stand. As soon as this has happened the croupier will reveal his or her cards and the black jack player who has gotten twenty-one or the closet to twenty-one will acquire a win.

Doubling Down: A gambler may request to double down which increases the bet by one hundred percent they have placed. As soon as you’ve taken this action you can only receive one additional card. The details of doubling down are normally out lined by the blackjack table or betting house game rules so prior to gambling make certain you are at ease with the house established rules. If you’re playing at a web casino this is normally quite easy.
