The fundamental of the game of Blackjack is simply to get more cards in your hand than your opponent. All other rules that apply to other card games don’t apply in this. While other card games require you to aim for a particular target, in Blackjack the only goal is to win.
As such, there are no “desired” cards for the player. The only thing the player wants is to win the hand.
Now, let’s look at the two basic blackjack rules. One rule is that if you choose the right cards to play, your hand is considered “good”. However, the other rule is that if you pick a hand of the cards that your opponent has, then you lose the hand. Both of these rules are referred to as the “blinds”.
Random selection of cards is the basis of any gambling game. With luck, random choice can be found in other card games too. However, Blackjack rules simply prohibit this. Only the cards that your opponent picks, you choose yourself.
Random selection of cards is also strictly followed by the casino in casino games like Poker and Roulette. In Blackjack, the casino staff is not allowed to make any shuffling or selection of cards.
But how does the Blackjack play begin? The first card is dealt to the players in the following sequence: The Dealer and all players on their left-hand side of the table face up. The Dealer and each player with a full house in his hand face down.
Then the players in the “standoff” order are dealt their first card. All players turn their cards over one at a time, turning over the ace (upmost card) first. The second card is then turned over.
Then the Dealer places his card face down on the table. The next cards are then turned over, the top card being placed on the table, and the player goes back to their left hand. The third card is then flipped over.
