Learn How to Play and Win Blackjack
after practicing some basic steps
that can be learn easily. Blackjack
is one of the more easier card gam
es that you will come across, and i
ts basic concept is simple: get 21
as the sum of your cards or get as
close to 21 but higher than the sum

1) Do not try and reach 21.
Yes. Even though blackjack is also
commonly called 21, trying to reach
21 with every hand is an amateuris
h move. You will, most certainly, l
ose the hand. Statistical research
conducted has shown that the odds o
f reaching 21 is lesser than the od
ds of getting more than 21.

2) Try and Beat the Dealer.
Since blackjack is a one on one bat
tle: you versus the dealer, focus o
n beating the dealer. Instead of tr
ying to get 21, try to guess what h
and the dealer will receive and acc
ordingly play your hand. Remember t
hat the dealer at a regular casino
or even at an <a href="http://www.g
ambling-portal.com">online casino</
a> has to stop taking more cards if
the cards on the table add up to 1
7. But if their cards add up to 16
or any number less, they will have
to take another card.

3) Look at the dealer's card facing
up.
The only way to play is to look at
the dealer's card facing up. If it
is a low card like a two or anythin
g up to a 6 or 7, try and get a hig
h number combination. If it_s a 9 o
r 10, the odds are high that he has
a 10 underneath or at least he wil
l be forced to take another card. S
o, reach anything up to 20 or 21, b
ut its better to even stop at a 18
or 19 and hope they will over-run t
he sum of 21.

How Blackjack is Played at a Casino:

1) Place your bet on the table.
Each blackjack table has a set begi
nning bet and this ranges from a do
llar to ten or twenty for the high-
rollers crowd. This is the amount o
f chips you will have to put down,
and this signals to the dealer that
you are taking part in the next ro
und.

2) You will get a card.
The dealer then deals a card to you
and all the other players who have
also placed a bet down.

3) The dealer places a face-up card
in front.
This is one of the cards of the dea
ler, and since its facing up, all t
he players have a chance to judge t
he outcome of his cards.

4) The dealer deals the second card.

The dealer, then, deals you and all
the players an additional card. Th
is is the time to have a look at th
em and at the dealer's card and dec
ide whether you wish to get another
card.

The dealer now turns to each player
and asks them if they wish to rece
ive another card. If you wish it,
the dealer will give you a card. Th
en, the dealer will ask you again.
Note that the dealer will be with y
ou until you decide that you do not
want to receive any more cards. Th
en, the dealer moves on to the next
player, then, the next, and so on.

6) The dealer starts playing.
Only when all the players have said
that they do not want any more car
ds, does the dealer start playing.
He takes cards until he has reached
17 or above. Then, he has to stop.

7) The dealer opens the cards.
When he's done, the dealer first re
veals all his cards. Then, he moves
from one player to the other openi
ng their cards. After revealing eac
h player's hands, the dealer pays o
ut the bet or takes the bet away ac
cording to who has won and who has
lost.
