Blackjack is a remarkably simple game. It’s so simple that the rules can be printed on a business card sized piece of paper. Most players ask “How do I win?” That is the point of the game isn’t it? To win. “How do I get better?” You can do a lot of things to get better and win at blackjack, but isn’t it best to first enjoy the game rather than wishing you could win?
The game of blackjack is so simple to understand, yet it is not what you think it is. If you think the game is easy, you are dead wrong. If you think the game is simple, you may as well just hand you money to the casino. It is not a game of luck, it is a game of math, and there is a lot of math involved in this game.
However, it is easy to learn the basic rules, and fairly quickly you should be able to win enough money to pay for your mistakes, make some money, and maybe even leave the casino a winner. Just remember, it is a game of math, so if you don’t math well, you are going to have a hard time winning at blackjack.
The first thing you need to know is there are more than four cards being used in the game. Each card has a point value that starts at one and goes around to nine. Such as the ace, two, three, four, five, six, and seven.
The card numbered two and three are the so-called “bust cards”. This is where the dealer will “bust” if his hand contains an ace or a face card. Face cards are considered to be ten points each.
The ace on the other hand is considered to be the high card. Thus having an ace and a ten is a very strong hand. The ace and a seven is the kickoff for the dealer.
Next comes the Ace and Seven. The ace and seven are the most powerful cards. Since they start out as two cards, obtaining an ace and a ten is a very strong hand.
Now comes the King, Queen, and Jack. These cards are all worth ten points. That means that the King is the most powerful card in the deck, and the Queen is the second most powerful. The Jack is the weakest card.
Now comes the The cards are all worth only twenty-one points, which means that the Ace is the most powerful card in the deck, and the Queen is the weakest.
If you run a bluff, the dealer probably won’t believe you have a strong hand because he values his hand at twenty-one points. When you declare your hand, he may change his hand if he feels that you have a good one.
However, the dealer is keeping track of all of the cards on the table and of the players hands, so he can determine whether you really have a good hand or not. In most cases, card counting is a technique that will lead to a win for the player, so don’t be afraid to use it if you feel you can score points.
In blackjack, card counting is allowed, but it needs to be done exactly the same way as in blackjack. Therefore, even though the players may not be allowed to count, once they see your cards, they can’t hide the fact that you have them beat.
When you see the cards, you must assign a value for each card in your hand. In blackjack, each card is worth 10 points. Therefore, after the cards are dealt, you must add up each of the cards, not just the face up cards. This means that the value of your cards should beilton each other. This makes it easier to remember how many points each particular card is worth.
To get the highest value of card in your hand, you must roll an additional die. The rules for this are that the total of your first two dice must be equal to the number on the table, or twenty. The additional die may or may not be added to the initial die. However, if you only use one die, you must use the die you came up with, except when stated.
After you established the values for each card in your hand, you place your bet. You may bet in one amount or a range. You also have the option to take the checker behind the cards and roll again when you bet. This is called “Bolagila“.
Whoever rolls first starts. The dealer last to roll has to bet an amount equal to the highest bet made before him, or he must stop and turn the stick to the side, so the come-out roll can be made.
Whatever bet was made before the come-out roll may be rolled again after that, except when the points are made.
