Standard Blackjack Objective
Blackjack is essentially a two-player game between the player and the dealer. Two cards are dealt to the player and the dealer. The player’s cards are dealt face up while only one of the dealer’s cards will face up with the other facing down. The objective is to accumulate 21 or the closest value to it, without going over or busting 21, the player that achieves this wins.
Standard Blackjack Card Values
Blackjack is played with a standard international 52-card deck without the jokers. All cards 2 through until 10 have their face numerical value. The Jack, Queen and King are all worth 10 points each, and the Ace is either worth 1 or 11 points, which can be determined by the player. The best possible hand in Blackjack is a natural 21, this occurs when players are dealt a 10 point value card such as a King and an Ace. If the dealer also has a natural 21 this will result in a push.
