IIRC: For example, dealer dealt you a hand of 13 and 15 Dealer drew a card for himself, lets say he drew 10 then hit for 8 giving him a total of 18 for the house(himself) 1 - Hit with both hands, meaning the dealer will draw a card to add to both 13 and 15 2 - Hit with the first and stand with second. Dealer will only draw a card to add to your first card, in this case 13. Dealer will not draw a card to add to your second card, which is 15. 3 - Stand with the first, hit with the second. Similar to 2, only the cards you will stand and hit are reversed. 4 - Stand with both. Dealer will not draw cards to add to either of the cards you're dealt, so you're stuck with the same value of 13 and 15 Goal of the game is to beat the dealer by drawing a value higher than his. You will need to hit at least a 6 to beat him with your first hand, while you'll need at least 4 or more for your other. However, value must not exceed 21 or you will bust and instantly lose that hand. The dealer can bust too, and if that happens you can win provided you didn't bust yourself. Hope that helped!
