Blackjack Basics for Beginners
The original name for Blackjack in French was Ving-et-Un, which means Twenty-One, because the objective in all blackjack games is to get a hand total of 21 or as close to that as possible without going any higher. At the same time, you need to beat the dealer’s hand. You win the round if your hand is less than 21 and the dealer’s is higher than 21 or is lower than yours, or if your hand total is 21 exactly. This most-coveted hand is known as a Natural Blackjack.
To start with, everyone places their bets and then gets dealt 2 cards. Face cards count as 10, number cards as their pip value and aces as 11 or 1 depending on what works best with the rest of the hand. The dealer also gets 2 cards, with 1 of them facing up. This means that you can see both of your cards and 1 of the dealer’s cards. Using only this visual information and what you know about the Blackjack game you are playing, you need to decide what your next move will be.
