How to Play Blackjack
Each player, including himself, the dealer gives out 2 cards "shirt" up. If the dealer has a combination of an ace and a face value of 10 points after the deal, that is, blackjack, the player loses. In the event that the player has blackjack, the game is considered to be a draw and the player has the right to return his bet back.
According to the rules of the game in blackjack, if after the deal the dealer has an ace, the player can hedge against a possible combination of blackjack in the casino itself. Insurance is an agreement between the player and the casino that in the event of a blackjack being dropped from the dealer, the player will remain "afloat" and not lose. In this case, the player receives a win in the 3: 2 ratio, but loses his original bet. In fact, insurance is profitable for casinos, so players, knowing this, use it extremely rarely.
If a player has received the same pair of cards, for example two cards with a face value of 10 points, he can divide these cards into two hands, doubling the initial bet. The number of times that cards can be divided is determined according to the rules of a particular variation of the game.
If the player has a face value of 9, 10 or 11 points, he can double his initial bet and subsequently request only one card. Doubling a bet is not a fixed rule. Most often, doubling is possible only after the distribution of the first two cards. However, some types of blackjack give players the opportunity to use doubling for any number of cards.
According to the rules of the game, when using the basic strategy, a player can surrender at any time, but at the same time lose half of the initial bet. Quitting the game is the most reasonable decision in a situation where the value of all player cards is 16 points, while the dealer has an ace and a card with a value of 9 or 10 points.
More adrenaline from the game can be obtained at tournaments. The winner will be the one who will stand more number of rounds. However, the more players, the harder it is to win. To win in such a tournament and win a really large sum of money, it is important not only to know the basic strategy of the game, but also to take a responsible approach to determining the size of the bet. It is necessary to take into account not only your own account, but also the count of opponents.
