To begin with, the first step in the blackjack rule is learning the value of your hand from the value of each card. Here’s a recap:
- Cards from 2 to 10 : each card is equivalent to the number it announces.
- Personalized cards (Jack, Queen, King) : 10 points.
- Ace : depending on your strategy, it can be worth 1 or 11 points.
The players place their initial bet at the start of the game. The croupier places a card face up in the center of the playing mat, then draws one for his hand. He draws a card again and places it next to the first face up and a second for himself. The number of cards is not restricted, you just don’t have a hand that exceeds 21 points.
