In blackjack, the player bets on whether the dealer will hit (make a hand with a value of at least 21) or stand (not make a hand). If the player bets on the dealer hitting, and the dealer does hit, then the player wins the hand.
If the player bets on the dealer not hitting, and the dealer does not hit, then the player loses the hand. .
There are two basic ways to win in blackjack: hitting more than the dealer, and getting a blackjack.
If you’re going to try to hit more than the dealer, you’ll want to choose your cards carefully. When you’re playing blackjack, it’s important to understand how counting works.
The goal is to make sure that you never have two cards of equal rank (two 10s or two Jacks). When two cards are of equal rank, it’s called a “set” and it’s considered a very bad thing for your chances of winning.
If you’re going to try to get a blackjack, you’ll want to use some strategy. For example, if you think that there’s a good chance that the next card will be an ace (a card which is usually very good), it might be worth sacrificing some hits in order to get that ace.
