Blackjack is a game of strategy in which you play against the dealer. The aim of the game is to beat the dealer by getting a higher score than the dealer. During a game, you can make bets on your hand and the dealer’s hand, or you can wait for the dealer to complete a round of play.
Blackjack can be played with a single deck of cards, with two decks, or with three or more decks. Depending on the number of decks and house rules, the basic strategy can vary. However, basic strategy usually involves deciding when to hit, stand, or double down.
Before learning how to play blackjack, you need to understand the different options you have. For example, you can choose to double down, which means you can put more money on the table. This allows you to get more bets out when you think you’re likely to win. You can also draw extra cards, which can help you make weaker soft totals.
Another strategy you may want to try is to split your aces. These two cards are considered 11 point cards, so splitting them reduces the house edge by a small percentage. A smart player only needs to have one of each to make the hand.
Besides playing blackjack, you can also enjoy the many other activities available at the Black Jacks. There were excursions during MLK weekend, parties, and a Christmas Party. In addition, the Black Jacks hosted a safe sex meeting twice a month. If you were gay, you could join the organization.
The first Black Jacks safe sex meeting was held on February 2, 1990. Before that, all meetings had to be private and unprotected sex was not allowed.
Black Jacks became a destination for the queer African American community. The club had a number of requirements, including that members be black and lesbian, and that they have to be willing to trust others to maintain the confidentiality of the group.
Members were required to register and attend a few events before becoming a gold member. Gold members could bring guests if they met the criteria. They paid a $15 membership fee, and they had a hotel room reserved for them. To qualify for gold membership, they had to attend at least two Black Jacks meetings.
When the Black Jacks organization grew, more chapters were formed in Chicago and Detroit. In addition to that, the Minority AIDS Project, the first HIV/AIDS organization founded by people of color, was established.
The Black Jacks organization changed dramatically throughout its history. Over time, it became a thriving village. It was the destination for farmers who were hauling goods to market, and it offered shelter to those who were moving to the city.
In the early years, Black Jacks hosted a newsletter. As BLK grew in popularity, the newsletter began to fade. With the increased traction, the Black Jacks organization began to publish personal ads.
After several years of publication, the Black Jacks newsletter changed its policy. From there, it was no longer a newsletter, but a magazine.
