Blackjack is a gambling game where you try to get a hand totaling closer to 21 than the dealer. If you go over 21, then you automatically lose, or bust. Playing as the dealer in blackjack is similar to how you would play regularly, but with a few added responsibilities, like handing out cards and chips.

Dealing. I don't think there's one set way to deal blackjack. There are, however, some guidelines thatshould be followed. Before beginning, shuffle the cards. Have a player cut the deck by inserting a "cut" card into the deck. The cut shouldn't be cut too close to either end of the deck. Next, put the cards in the shoe.

Other aspects, such as dealing with cheating casino players, can only really come from experience on the casino floor. The majority of courses (which are usually about six weeks long) will spend the bulk of the time teaching how to play roulette, with just the last week working on blackjack.
The deal and "blackjack". At the start of a blackjack game, the players and the dealer receive two cards each. The players' cards are normally dealt face up, while the dealer has one face down (called the hole card) and one face up. The best possible blackjack hand is an opening deal of an ace with any ten-point card.
The dealer does not hit until all players have either busted, stayed or received blackjack. At which point the dealer will reveal the hidden card they dealt themselves at the beginning of the round. The dealer will hit until they have a sum of or higher than 17. These are the dealer's rules for each round of blackjack.
If the dealer deals you two cards with the same blackjack card value, the rules of blackjack say you may “split” them into two separate hands by placing another bet equal to your initial wager. For example, virtually all players of 21 will split a pair of Aces by placing an additional bet to create two potentially winning hands.
The Deal. When all the players have placed their bets, the dealer gives one card face up to each player in rotation clockwise, and then one card face up to themselves. Another round of cards is then dealt face up to each player, but the dealer takes the second card face down.
Blackjack is a prime example of the dealer tossing you what seems to be a lifeline, but in actuality is little more than an anchor. The insurance bet is sold to players as a way to negate their loss when the dealer has an ace showing. The premise is that their hole card is a value of 10, meaning the dealer has blackjack.
