As Johnson remembers it, the $800,000 hand started with him betting $100,000 and being dealt two eights. If a player is dealt two of a kind, he can choose to “split” the hand, which means he can play each of the cards as a separate hand and ask for two more cards, in effect doubling his bet. His next two cards, surprisingly, were also both eights, so he split each again. Getting four cards of the same number in a row doesn’t happen often, but it does happen.
In Spanish 21 players are paid immediately on any Blackjack or 21 card total – you don’t have to play against the Dealer! Players may also surrender their hand on the first two cards and forfeit half their wager. Johnson had not played a game at the Borgata in more than a year.
Stick to your own strategy, and don’t worry about what other players think – especially in live dealer games. Some players may blame your decisions for their bad luck, even though your choices won’t change their odds over the long run. You may choose to hit, which means the dealer will give you another card. You may also choose to stand, meaning you want no more cards and are done playing your hand. If at any time you have more than 21 points in your hand, you have “busted,” meaning you immediately lose your bet.
Bust means you have run out of money (it’s not the end of the world if you lose your bankroll, so long as you did separate it from your day-to-day living funds).

The dealers will NOT have 10 more times than they will have one. We advise you to free blackjack first to get a feel for the game and to become familiar with blackjack strategy. However, there’s nothing quite like playing real money blackjack. All our top sites offer blackjack games that allow you to win cash each time you play. One of the best online blackjack options is live blackjack, in which you can see a real human dealer use a physical deck of cards to keep the game going.
For the cupholders, do NOT completely cut out the felt over those holes. Instead, punch a small hole over the center of each hole and cut several slits extending from that small hole outward to the edge of the cupholder hole. This will enable you to fold the felt down into the hole. (For moveable cupholders, you can skip this step.) Use the same method for the chip rack hole.
