If the player draws, it means he is asking for another card. A player can draw as many times as he wants, until he goes bankrupt, or his hand has a value of 21.
If the player stays, it means that he does not ask for any other cards. The remaining player therefore keeps his starting hand, and it is then compared to that of the dealer.
If the player doubles, it means he can choose to double his starting bet. In return, he can only request one additional card. When he chooses to double down, the player automatically stays.
If the first two cards dealt are two cards of the same value, the player can choose to separate them in order to play with two decks. For this, he must add the same bet as the starting one. When the dealer deals his “second” card to him, the player decides how to play each of these two games separately. The perfect time to split the cards is when you have aces and 8s.
