BlackJack – This is the Game to Play

Keep in mind that the hand signals will be slightly different if you’re playing in a casino where the cards are dealt face down and you’re allowed to pick them up. In that situation a player would signal that they wanted another card by scratching the table with the edges of the two cards they’re holding. If they didn’t want another card, they would simply place their two cards under the bet in their box.

 

In either case, if a player draws another card the value of that card is added to the total of the other cards and the player can continue to draw cards unless he gets a total of more than 21 in which case he busts and loses his bet.

 

When a player doesn’t want any more cards, or stands, the dealer then moves on to the next player and after all of the players are finished then it’s the dealer’s mm to play. While each player can decide whether or not they want another card the dealer doesn’t have that option and he must play by a fixed set of rules that require him to draw a card whenever his total is 16 or less and to stop when his total is 17 or more. If the dealer goes over 21 then he has busted and all of the players remaining in the game will be paid 1-to-1, or even money, on their bet.

 

If the dealer doesn’t bust then each player’s hand is compared to the dealer’s. If the player’s total is higher than the dealer’s then they win and are paid even money. If the player’s hand has a total that is lower than the dealer’ s hand then the ป๊อกเด้ง ไฮโล player loses his bet. If the player and the dealer have the same total then it’ s a tie, or a push and neither hand wins. After all of the bets have been paid off, or taken by the dealer, a new round begins and new hands are dealt to all of the players.

 

When deciding how to play your hand there are also three other options available to you besides standing or hitting. The first is called doubling down and most casinos will allow a player to double their bet on their first two cards and draw only one more card. To do this you would place an amount equal to your original bet right next to it and then the dealer would give you one more card, sideways, to indicate that your bet was a double down. To double down in a game where the cards are dealt face down you would turn up your original two cards and tell the dealer you wanted to double down. Then, after you double your bet, the dealer would give you one more card face down. Some casinos may have restrictions on this bet and may only allow you to double down if the total of your 2 cards is l0 or 11, but it’s always to your advantage if they allow you to double down on any two cards.

 

Another thing you can do is split your cards if you have a pair and then play each card as a separate hand. For example, if you had a pair of 8’s you would place a bet equal to your original bet right next to it and tell the dealer you wanted to split your pair. The dealer would then separate your two 8’s and give you one card on your first 8. Unlike doubling down, however, you are not limited to only getting one card and you can play your hand out normally. When you were finished with your first hand the dealer would then give you a card on your other 8 and you would play that hand out. Although I said that you weren’t limited to just one card on your splits there is one instance where that will happen and that’s when you split aces. Virtually all casinos will only give you one card on each ace when you split them. Also, if you get a 10-value card with your ace it will only count as 21 and not as a blackjack so you’ll only get even money on that bet if you win. Besides splitting pairs you can also split all 10-value cards such as jack-king or 10-queen but it would be a very bad idea to do that because you would be breaking up a 20 which is a very strong hand and you should never split 10’s. By the way, if you wanted to split a pair in a casino where the cards are dealt face down you would simply turn your original 2 cards face-up and then tell the dealer that you wanted to split them.

 

The last option you have is not available in most casinos but you may come across it in a few Las Vegas Strip casinos and it’s called surrender. With the surrender option you’re allowed to lose half of your bet if you decide you don’t want to play out your hand after looking at your first 2 cards. Let’ s say you’re dealt a 10-6 for a total of 16 and the dealer has a 10 as his face-up card. A 16 is not a very strong hand, especially against a dealer’s 10, so in this case it would be a good idea to surrender your hand and when the dealer came to your cards you would say “surrender.” The dealer would then take half of your bet and remove your cards. Surrender is good for the player because in the long run you will lose less on the bad hands you’re dealt and you should always try to play in a casino that offers the surrender option.

 

All right, we’ve covered the basics of how to play the game of blackjack and all of the possible options a player has, so the next question is how do you win? Well, the best way to win is to become a card counter, but for the average person that isn’t always possible so let’s start off by taking a look at basic blackjack strategy.

 

Computer studies have been done on the game of blackjack and millions of hands have been analyzed to come up with a basic formula fox how to play your hand in any given situation. The main principle that these decisions are based on is the dealer’s up card because, remember that the dealer has no say in whether or not he takes a card – he must play by the rules that require him to draw a card until he has a total of 17 or more. Now, according to these computer calculations the dealer will bust more often when his up card is a 2,3,4,5 or 6 and he will complete more hands when his up card is a 7,8,9,10-value card or an ace.
