The game starts when all the players at the table are seated and ready to play. The big blind and small blind are posted
and every player gets one card face down. This card is only visible to the player who is playing the hand and not to the
others at the table.
Now that all the players have their first card the action will start. The first player to the left of the big blind can
call, check or raise. This action goes round the table in a clockwise position until every player is in or out of the game.
Now the second round will start, every player still in the game will get a second card face up. This card is visible to
all the players at the table. The second betting round can now commence in the same manner as the first betting round did.
When all the players have folded or are still in the game the third and most important round will commence.
Each player still in the game now gets the chance to draw a card or to stand. Each player may draw to a maximum of 7 cards
as this is the highest hand a player can get. If a player is happy with his/her hand then it is possible to stand. The
total sum of a hand is allowed to go over 21 but it will loos to every hand that is under 21.
Once all the players have had a chance to draw or stand the third and final betting round will commence. Just like in
the previous betting rounds players can now raise, fold, call and check. When everyone still in the game has equalled the
highest bet the showdown will start. All the hands are placed open on the table and the winner will take the pot just
like in the poker game, Texas Hold’em.
As you can read the game is not complicated and when playing online Holden Blackjack the computer does all the work. All you
need to do as a player is bet, hit or stand. As the game is fairly new there will always be new players around which you can
take advantage of or help during the game.
