How to Play Blackjack – Basic Strategy

The cards are dealt. Your hand is dealt one at a time, face up. The dealer has one face up, one face down card and keeps the other face down. You see the dealer’s second card. Now, you can either hit (deal again) or stand (do nothing and let the dealer keep dealing). You can hit as many times as you want, but if you go over 21, you lose. ½ bet is the minimum. If you go over 21 once, but not twice, you will bust. Your cards are dealt one at a time, face down. The dealer has one face up, one face down card and keeps the other face down. You can draw cards as long as you want to keep playing. You cannot draw more cards and will have to discard one card. The last card is turned face up. This is the “late” count. All cards are dealt the same number of card hands (eights, sevens, eights, etc) and the same number of card flops.

With 52 cards in a deck of cards, there are 48 elements of a reel. There are four suits of cards (spades, diamonds, hearts, Clubs) and every card has the same value (face cards have 10 points each). The first face-up card is a “pocket” card. You can always assume that the player with the highest card has a “pocket pair.” These are two cards of the same rank. Each player has a “full house.”

The third highest card in the deck is called the pokerace99 “up” card. If you have a “full house,” the value of your hand is equal to this number. If you have a “three of a kind,” the value of your hand is the higher of these two numbers. You have three of a kind if there are three cards of the same rank in your hand. The highest value three of a kind hand is three of a kind A, two of a kind K, four of a kind Q. You will have a “straight” if there are four cards of the same rank in your hand. The highest value “straight” is A, K, Q, J, 10. The next highest card you will have is the “straight flush,” which is any five cards in the same order, starting with the ace and continuing clockwise.

The ace high flush, ace, king high flush, king, queen high flush and the royal high flush are the highest worth hands. The ace high flush is the paired flush, such as ace, king, queen, jack, ten. The queen high flush is just the same, but queens can be used as either high or low. The jack, however, is the highest of the lot, since it isunique, unlike the queen which is low. The lowest hand is the “whatever” which is just any hand that has no particular order.

The next rank of hands is the “four of a kind,” which is four cards of the same rank. The next rank of hands is “flush,” which is where you have five cards of the same suit. After that, you have “straight,” which is where you have five cards in sequence. Then you have “three of a kind,” which you have three cards of the same rank. After that are “two pair,” which are two separate pairs of the same rank. After that you have “pair,” which is essentially two cards of the same rank. After that you have “high card,” which is basically whatever hand you have.
