The objective of the Blackjack player is to make a hand of 21 or higher than the dealer's, but not to exceed 21.
If the player has a hand higher than 21 he is out of the game, in which case it will be "Bust". Each card has its initial value, except for "faces" (jacks, queens, and kings), which are worth 10, and aces (A), which are worth either 1 or 11.
Initially, players will place a bet and the dealer will be dealt a face up card and a face down card. The rest of the players will be dealt two cards each, visible to everyone at the table.
