Welcome to Single Deck Black. This variation is played with a single deck of cards, unlike standard Blackjack, which is played with six decks. Each player is up only against the dealers, independently of other players. Your goal is to draw cards until your hand sums up to 21 or comes close to it without exceeding. If your first two cards total 21, you have Blackjack.

This version of the game follows standard “Las Vegas Strip” rules, with its exceptions: the deck is shuffled after each round, the player may split only once, the player may double after splitting, the player can double 10 and 11 only, players can split to 2 hands, no late surrender and the dealer check for Blackjack if his open card is a 10 or an Ace.
