Then the first player will deal a second player card to the dealer. The dealer will now take both player cards and give them to the player who has made the largest wager on player. Now first player deals a second bank card. The callman now asks for the player cards and turns them over. He calls out the hand. Then first player turns over the bank hand and passes the cards to the callman who then calls out the bank hand. This sounds confusing, but really isn't once you've played a few hands.

At this juncture, both the player and bank hands are played according to a clear set of rules that differ for each. Cards are worth their face value with the exception of the 10 and face cards. Since all ten-valued cards (10, Jack, Queen, King) count as zero, the highest possible hand is nine. However, if you have a 7 and a 3 you do not have a 10, but have a 0. If you have an 8 and 4, you do not have 12, but 2.

The player hand is played, then the bank hand is played. A "natural" is a hand totaling eight or nine on the first two cards. An Ace counts as a one. You want to beat the opposing hand by getting as close to nine as possible with your cards-either with your first two cards or after drawing cards. Rules for the player and bank hands are as follows:

[ 1 ][ 2 ][ 3 ][ 4 ]
Fooling Around
My opponent made a small bet and I called. The turn was another jack. Immediately, my opponent became a caricature of an amateur feigning weakness, so I folded on his bet. Disappointed at the small pot, he showed me his two pocket jacks, which gave him quad. I congratulated hand, and didn't think much more of it.

But later, the guy who dealt for us told me that he had stacked the jacks. Incredibly, he wasn't the slightest bit embarrassed or shamed about it. In fact, he was a little proud of himself, which is pretty pathetic when you consider how easy it is to stack if you are allowed to shuffle, cut, and deal yourself (I would have been more impressed if I had been dealt a full house). Anyway I knew he wasn't colluding with my opponent, and he tried to explain it as just fooling around-although I have a hunch that this particular person wanted to see me beaten at my own game. In any case, this player apparently didn't consider it unethical to spike a hand in which he wasn't involved.
