You are dealt two cards face up and the dealer is dealt two cards, one face down and one face up. The goal is to get closer to 21 points than the dealer without going over 21 points. A "Blackjack" is a hand that totals 21 points with two cards. Blackjack automatically wins, unless both you and the dealer receive Blackjack, then you push. A total of 21 points with three or more cards is not considered Blackjack.
