Chemin de Fer ABC’s – Part One

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

The basic premise of the game is to be given cards totaling up to twenty-one. Each blackjack player is dealt two cards. When a black jack player is dealt a nine or less and an Ace they have been dealt a soft hand. When the gambler receives no Ace it is referred to as a hard hand. As soon as the cards have been handed to every player at the blackjack table, which includes the dealer, each player is provided the chance to make one of six actions:

Taking another card (Hit): When a black jack player says "hit" the croupier will deal him another card, if the addition of that card causes the value of the hand to exceed twenty-one the blackjack player will have busted and that is the end of the game, if the card makes the value of the hand to twenty one the gambler will be the winner and if the value of the hand hasn’t yet reached twenty one they’re still in the game.

Keeping the hand you have been given: If a blackjack player is happy with the hand they will stand. Once this has happened the dealer will show his/her cards and the gambler who has accumulated 21 or the closet to 21 will acquire a win.

Doubling Down: A black jack player may request to double down which doubles the bet they have made. As soon as you have taken this action you can only be given 1 more card. The details of doubling down are normally out lined by the table or casino game rules so before playing be sure you are familiar with the casino game rules. If you are playing at a web-based betting house this is normally very simple.
