Blackjack Lessons

Black Jack is possibly one of the more favoured games wagered on in betting houses. Black jack is also known as 21 or Chemin de Fer. The game is a mix of luck and ability combined with decision-making. The game has changed over a period of time. Players have specialized in specific abilities like "card card counting," with which they shift the odds of the game in their direction. The card game has been around since the 18th century. References can be found in historical documents to a game referred to as "vingt-et-un," which in French means 21, and is considered the precursor to blackjack.

The game was originally not so well-liked in the US. This caused the betting houses trying various things like providing a bonus in case of a 10-to-1 payout, if the black jack player got an ace of spades and a black jack. The jack could be either the jack of clubs or spades. After the game got popular, the reward pay out before long disappeared from the rules.

Any hand which achieves a value of twenty one is deemed a winner. The value can not go beyond twenty one, if it does the hand is considered to be "bust." The target of each player is to best the house. If the black jack player and the croupier both have the identical score, it is called "push" (a tie), with not either the player nor the casino winning the hand.
