A Standoff is when both the player and the dealer have Blackjack and neither wins.

The game starts with the dealing two cards for every player by the dealer. The dealer distributes the cards for himself either. The dealer exposes one of his cards for players to decide whether to take another card (hit) or play cards he has (stand). And also the player has an opportunity to double down the hand or split it.

The doubling down option means doubling the initial bet by the player and accepting of one additional card in order to complete the hand.

Using splitting, the player doubles the bet either but he separates two identical cards and add two cards for two separate hands which are played separately, the player can take hits as needed. But there is one exception: with aces he is allowed to receive one card for each of them.

With the help of these techniques the player can increase the winning chances greatly.
