The Basics of Blackjack

January 5th, 2015 by admin

The croupier has its cards on a certain way gamble without freedom of decision. There are two popular sets of rules that determine what the dealer does. The respective control you realize by paying attention to what is described at the blackjack table. It should clearly indicate these rules:

“Croupier plays up to 17”: In this case, the dealer takes as many cards until he has reached 17 or more. An ace is always counted as 11 with him unless he comes out with it on the 21. So if he has an ace and an 8, which would result in 19 and the dealer is likely to draw any more cards. An ace and a 6 would result in 16 and would mean that the dealer can not draw. He moves on cards until he comes higher than or equal to the value 17. An ace, a 5 and a 7 yields only 13, so he still draws a. Ace, 5, 7 and 5, however, found 18 so he would stop at this point.
“Croupier plays until soft 17”: Some casinos use this alternative scheme. It is identical except for the fact that a special rule occurs when the croupier achieved a soft 17. Sets like Ace and 6, Ace, 5 and Ace or Ace, 2 and 4 would be examples for a soft 17. The dealer reaches and stop as soon as he has a soft 18, 17 or more achieved. If this rule is used, the casino advantage over the players increased slightly.

The croupier has no discretion in his game. He always takes more cards until it reaches at least a 17 or 21 exceeds.
