Blackjack ABC’s – Part One
March 27th, 2010 by Annabella

The general premise of the card game is to be assigned cards adding up to 21. Each player is dealt 2 cards. When a black jack player is given a 9 or lower value card and an Ace they’ve been given a soft hand. When the gambler is dealt no Ace it is referred to 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:

Taking another card (Hit): When a black jack player announces hit me the croupier will deal him another card, if the addition of that card causes the total greater than 21 the blackjack player will have lost and be excluded from the game, if the card pushes the value of the hand to 21 the player is the winner and if the value of the hand has not yet reached twenty-one they are still in the game.

Keeping the hand you’ve been dealt: If a player is happy with the cards they will stay. As soon as this has happened the dealer will show their hand and the blackjack player who has accumulated twenty one or the nearest to 21 will acquire a win.

Doubling Down: A blackjack player might request to double down which doubles the wager they have laid. Once you’ve taken this action you can only be given one more card. The details of doubling down are normally specified by the blackjack table or casino rules so before gambling make certain you are familiar with the house game rules. If you are wagering at an on-line betting house this is normally very easy.

Watch for part two.
