typical Online Blackjack Games game goes something
like this. You approach the table and notice five
to seven little circles or other symbols that look
like place markers. Actually they are locations for
sacrificial offerings. You put a bet on the nearest
little symbol and say a prayer or some such. The dealer
shuffles the cards with lightning speed and an annoyed
expression and sets the pack in front of you. You
cut the cards and pray again. The dealer picks up
the cards and places them in a box called a shoe.
Or, if one or two decks are used: With a quick motion
called burning a card, the dealer removes the top
card and places it face up on the bottom of the pack
or face down in the discard tray. The dealer gives
one card face down to each player, one card face up
to the dealer, a second card face down to each player,
and a second card face down to the dealer. Variations

the dealer does not, you happily win one and a half

players usually turn to cheating because they aren't
able to win playing straight poker. A cheat might
have extra information available to him, but if he
doesn't know how best to use it, he can still be a
losing player. Indeed, many private games have regulars
who are known to be cheats and who are tolerated,
because they are among the game's most regular losers.
