help by learning the basics of blackjack. You will need Deck of cards 2 or more players
and table. Several states bar all gambling, including pools in which the organizer does
not profit. Know your local laws Step 1. Know the rules. Blackjack is a counting game. Face
cards are worth 10 and aces are worth one or 11. The values of number cards are their
numbers. The goal of Blackjack is to get closer than the dealer to a total of 21 without going
over. Step 2. Select a dealer and place your bets. Dealer selection can be accomplished
by the _first Ace_ method. A random player deals one card to each player around the table
(person the left first) and continues until a player gets an Ace. That player dealt the
first Ace becomes the dealer until another player gets blackjack. The deal will then
pass to *first* player who got blackjack.During Step 3. The dealer deals one card face down,
then one card face up, to each player, beginning from the left. Under alternate rules, players
may receive both cards face down and make their initial bet after the first card has
been dealt. Step 4. Tell the dealer “hit” if you were dealt a low hand and want another
card. Repeat this as many times as you wish, or until you “bust,” which means you went
over 21. Tell the dealer “stand” if you don’t want any more cards. Step 5. Once every player
has either declared a stand or busted, the dealer shows his face-down card. If the hand
is worth less than 17, the dealer must take cards until his card total reaches at least
17. Step 6. A player wins if his hand is closer to 21 than the dealer’s, or if the dealer
busts. If the dealer ties with a player, it’s considered a “push.” The player’s original
bet is returned and nobody wins. Did you know Both France and Italy claim to be the birthplace
of blackjack, but the game’s exact origins are unknown.
