How To Play 21
Question
Another name for the game 21 is
Let's have a look at 21 or as it's called in this country, Pontoon. Very similar to Black Jack, same rules, etc. except it's not played against the house, you play among friends, you can have a game of 21 in that chips or money, or whatever you want to do, but when you get Black Jack or 21, the person that gets 21 first in the particular hand takes over the dealing of the cards which makes in the bank. Okay? So, for instance, I'm in the bank, and we've got three other players playing with us, very similar game to black jack, you deal the three cards out and maybe in the bank, give the guys an opportunity, you show them your top card, and the decision is made on what to do now based on these cards. He's got 14 with an 8 showing, not the best holding. I'm going to take a card, the boss, 15 again, more likely who it is, that this card is going to be a 10 as there's more 10's than king, queen, jack, 10 in the pack, or an ace. So, a very good chance about 35-40% of this is being a 10. So, a 15 here, showing, really want to take a card. Again, you bust. Now, ace, 9 – ace, 9 being 10 or 20. Obviously, you're going to take the 20, really good card, you're going to stick with this. Now, being in the bank, I'm going to show 10, take your card, 21. Now, that's not Black Jack, because Black Jack is only when you're doing 2 cards. So, we've got 21, beats the 20, I take the money in, I win the hand, I continue with the bank. That's how you play Pontoon. .
