Understanding The Basics: Blackjack

When blackjack first became a casino staple, it was assumed to be like baccarat, where the house, by virtue of the rules that determine the game, had a statistical advantage. Players assumed this advantage existed based on two simple facts: the player had to act first, and all the busts (hands totaling more than twenty-one) were losers no matter what.

It is not uncommon to meet people (mostly casino fans) who do not know what Blackjack is, leave its alternate nickname, “twenty-one” alone. The credit for the invention of the game goes to the Americans who popularized it to the extent that it became a worldwide hit.

This prevents the value of the hand from exceeding 21. In the event that you do not have an Ace with you, then the hand is difficult.…
