The Rules of BlackJack

The goal of blackjack is to aquire cards so that the total value equals 21 or as close to 21 without going over 21. You may play alone against the dealer or with others who will also play against the dealer. You are all individuals and the money you bet does not affect the money that another person bets. You place your initial bet in front of you before the round of cards is dealt. The dealer will then give the paying player 2 cards going around the table in a clockwise direction. The dealer will also give himself 2 cards and one of these will be placed face up. Kings, Queens, Jacks, and 10’s are all valued at ten points while the remaining cards are at their numberd value. An Ace may be valued at either 1 or 11 at the players discretion.
What is BlackJack?

Blackjack happens when a player has an Ace and another face card worth 10 points. This is generally a winning hand but if the dealer also has blackjack this will be what is referred to as a push where no money is won or lost. Winning with BlackJack pays out at the rate of 3:2
Hit or Stand

When you want another card you are requesting a hit. This can often be conveyed to the dealer by tapping the table or a distinct nod. Be very clear in your communication as once a card is dealt if cannot be placed back into the deck. You’re generally going to want to take as many cards as safely possible while trying to get to 21 or close to 21. Once you feel you can no longer accept any more cards you are choosing to stand which may be conveyed to the dealer by shaking your head ‘no’ or waving your hand in a blocking fashion over your cards. Should your cards total more than 21, you’ve gone bust and lost your bet to the dealer.
Going Down with the Double Down

If your first two cards are a pair you have the option ot splitting them by offering a duplicate bet. You’ll then be dealt a matching card for each part of the pair and you’ll play these hands in a separate manner. If your pair are Aces you will only have the ability to accept one card each. Any Aces received after you’ve split the original pair cannot be counted towards an official BlackJack.
I Give Up

Depending upon the locale, you may have the option to surrender. This can be done after viewing your first two cards and allos you to pull back half of your original bet for not playing your hand.
