Blackjack

The object of the blackjack game is to accumulate cards with point totals as close to 21 without going over 21. Face cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) are worth 10 points. Aces are worth 1 or 11, whichever is preferable. Other cards are represented by their number. If player and the House tie, it is a push and no one wins. Ace and 10 (Blackjack) on the first two cards dealt is an automatic player win at 1.5 to 1, unless the house ties. A player may stand at any time.

To win you need to beat the dealer without busting. You bust when your cards total to more than 21 and you lose automatically. The winner is whoever has closest to a total of 21. You reach 21 by adding up the values of the cards.
The blackjack table seats about 6 players. Either six or eight decks of cards are used and are shuffled together by the dealer and placed in a card dispensing box called 'Shoe'.

Before receiving any cards players must place a wager. Then the players are dealt two cards face up. The dealer gets one face up, one face down. Each player in turn either stays or takes more cards to try and get closer to 21 without busting. Players who do not bust wait for the dealer's turn. When all the players are done, the dealer turns up the down card. By rule, on counts of 17 or higher the dealer must stay; on counts of 16 or lower the dealer must draw.
If you make a total of 21 with the first two cards (a 10 or a face and an Ace), you win automatically. This is called 'Blackjack'. If you have Blackjack, you will win one and one-half times your bet unless the dealer also has Blackjack, in which case it is a Push or a Tie (or a Stand-off) and you get your bet back.

The remaining players with a higher count than the dealer win an amount equal to their bet. Players with a lower count than the dealer lose their bet. If the dealer busts, all the remaining players win.

In the world of blackjack players, there is an important element to keep in mind, and that is blackjack practice. For sure the blackjack strategy chart is definitely essential when you are at the table to play 21.

If you are interested in learning about blackjack, then start online. It’s the best way to jump right in and start getting yourself accustomed to the strategy and game play. There are a lot of free online blackjack games available these days on the internet, and since they are free there is lot of competition.

Card counting doesn’t need players to remember all the cards which are previously dealt. As an alternative, a point system is done so that they can track the cards by using purely point count. When the 10s are dealt initially, the point count should be -1 and when cards with low values such as 2-6 are dealt, +1 is its selected count. The great winning blackjack benefit is attainable when all the low cards have been dealt already in any casinos online miraclecasinos.com .
