How blackjack cards are dealt
In blackjack, the dealer takes the first two cards and turns them face up in front of her. These are called the up cards. The next two are face down in front of her, called the down cards.The dealer then gives you a chance to look at your own two cards as a single group before she deals yours and the dealer’s final cards. You choose whether you want to cut or stand on your final two cards.If you choose to cut, you put your two face up cards into a single pile and drop them face down on the table in front of you. You only have one card left to see.If you choose to stand, you keep your two face up cards and put one face down on each of the four corners of the table (called shoe) with the same hand that dealt you those two cards.
Who gets dealt first in blackjack?
The order of dealing in blackjack is as follows:Player 1 deals first; Player 2 next; then Player 3; and finally, Player 4.This is done because the player who deals first has the advantage because they have more information about the hand they are dealing. This information is gained by being next in line to see the dealer’s upcard and to see if the dealer hits or stands on their turn. So, the player who deals first also has an advantage when betting.
