How to Play Basic Blackjack : Blackjack Basics

Hi! This is Daniel and behalf of Expert Village
and this series of clips we’re going to
be talking about the game 21 or more commonly
known as blackjack. Blackjack uses a single
deck or up to 6 decks of standard playing
cards which has 52 cards in a deck, you’ll
have an ace, you’ll have your standard face
cards and then you’ll have all of your regular
cards 2 through 10 are worth their value,
your face cards are all going to be worth
10 and your ace is going to be worth either
1 or 11 depending on your hand. Players bet
in blackjack using standard casino poker chips
and there’s always a minimum at a table
so you’ll want to make sure you understand
what that minimum is when you’re betting.
Now the goal of blackjack is to be the closes
to 21 without going over or busting, so a
player is going to bet or fold depending upon
their hand and what they see the dealer having.
Now it is a game of strategy and a game of
odds and that’s something we’ll be talking
about in later clips. So for now know that
each player is dealt 2 cards and they’re
going to make a bet based upon that. They
can hit which means get another card, they
can stay or stand which means they get no
more cards, they can push which means they
have the same as the dealer, they can double
bond which means they simply double their
bet and only get one more card rather than
being able to continue to get cards until
they feel that they are closes to 21 or they
have busted or they can split. If they have
2 of the same cards they can create two hands
by simply splitting the cards, equaling their
bet and playing those as two separate hands.
We’ll get into more details in later clips
but that’s the basic of 21.
