Refusing to play
Some variants of blackjack involve the so-called “refuse to play”. It sounds like "Surrendering". If you choose this action, it implies your further refusal to play in the distribution, receiving 50% of your bet.
Well, what about the gameplay?
Each round of blackjack involves several actions. It depends on the cards issued by the dealer, and of the type of blackjack. What actions are available (we have already mentioned some of them):Take the card
Or, in other words, "hit". This action assumes that the player is asking for an additional card. The cards are dealt one at a time. But don't forget that if you go overboard, that is, you have over 21 points, you will lose.Enough
This action is called "stand". So, if you have 21 points or less in your hands, you may not take additional cards, because it is fraught with overkill.Splitting pairs
Or in other words "split". Some variants of blackjack have the ability to split the hand if the first two cards have the same weight or value. For example, this is a jack and ten, or two sixes. In this case, a second hand is created and a bet is made on it, which is equal to the initial one.Doubling the bet
This option is called "double down". The action involves the implementation of an additional bet equal to the initial one, after which you receive one card.Insurance
We would also like to note that there is an insurance option in blackjack. For example, if the dealer's first card is an Ace, then in this case insurance means that you can bet half of the initial bet and get a 2: 1 win if the dealer has blackjack. But if the dealer does not have blackjack, the game will be a draw.Even money
If you hit Blackjack and the dealer got an Ace, you can use a special type of insurance called "even money". This option assumes a one-to-one win and it doesn't matter if the dealer has blackjack or not. But if you do not use "equal money", in this case the distribution will continue as usual.Protection against accidental actions
Note also that there is a rule that in the game of blackjack the player himself determines what to do in a given situation. However, there are a number of factors that affect the game as a whole. This can be such an option as breaking the Internet connection, or you made a click by mistake. Often, the site has a number of specific features that will help protect the player from adverse actions or accidents.
Let's summarizeSo, there are a lot of options for moves, actions and their names.
Interesting fact. When playing in a casino, meaning in a real game, not online, players have certain gesture rules that they always use. If a player needs to draw a card, he should only knock on the table with his fingers, or else you can still scratch the edge of the card on the table. If you have enough cards, you need to put chips on the cards face down. This will mean that you have enough. For a split, add another bet and spread the cards to the sides, and to double, you need to make another bet on the required field.
It should also be remembered that you can stumble upon brute force at any time. To prevent this from happening, it is better not to get too much than to brute force. An important rule. If, for example, a player has a total of 12 cards, you should not take another card, since there is a high probability of taking 10, and the amount will be higher than 21. This strategy is not a panacea, thus you reduce the chance of win by 4%. But it should be understood that there are certain risks.
Understand card counting. Initially, you will not get involved in counting the cards that fell in the game, as experienced players do. But the masters really do counting with each game, i.e. how many aces, ten and which pictures came out and which ones still remained in the game. This requires observation. Such observation comes, of course, with experience.
So, if there are more than such cards left in the game, then this suggests that the players increase their stakes. Do not underestimate the casino in this regard, it is aware of this kind of tricks, therefore the game uses several decks. A part of the deck is cut, after each hand, all cards are shuffled, and so on. If, for example, six decks are involved in a blackjack game, it is very difficult to say how many “good” cards are left.
Therefore, it is up to you to decide whether you will count the cards during the game, or trust your luck.
