How to play blackjack

Written by Super User. Posted in Tutorial

Blackjack is mostly played with 1-8 ordinary decks of cards. A single round of blackjack mostly begins when every player places a bet in the logo or circle placed in front of each player. The dealer gives every player as well as himself two cards wherein the two cards of the players are dealt face up whereas one card of the dealer is dealt face up and the other is dealt face down known as hole card.

If there is an ace as the up card, there are chances that the dealer has a blackjack. This makes the entire players to lose except the one who also has a blackjack. The dealers especially in the US, check for the blackjack immediately and collect all the losing bets if the dealer has the blackjack.

The players play their hands when it is established that the dealer doesn’t has the blackjack through various options such as stand, hit, double, split and surrender. Once all the players play their hands, the dealer plays his/her hand in the end. The dealer hits until he/she reaches a score of 17 or more but if the dealer busts then all the players who didn’t bust automatically win.
