What Happens When a Player Stands in Blackjack?

When a player stands in blackjack, the dealer will give them any number of cards. The player’s goal is to achieve as close to 21 as possible, by either acquiring cards that add up to 21 or taking cards that are lower than the dealer’s hand.

If the player achieves 21 before the dealer, they win. If the player achieves 21 after the dealer, they lose.

If the player stands and the dealer has a higher hand, such as a 10 or Ace, then the player loses. .

Players can also lose if they are forced to stand because they have no more cards (known as being “stuck”). In this case, the player is given another card and must try to improve their hand to a total of 21 again.
