Introduction: Learn to Play Two People Blackjack

Do you want to learn how to play blackjack but only have two people? This Instructable will teach you the basics of blackjack and how to play with two people.
When I play I don't bet each hand I bet for the entire game at the beginning.

Step 1: Materials

The materials are very simple.
1- A deck of cards
2- Two people
Thats it.

Step 2: Basics

The dealer gives the other person one card up and one card down, then the same for themselves. Now they look at their bottom card and add the face value to the top card. If you are about ten or less from twenty-one then you want to hit(get another card), If you are close to twenty-one you want to stay(keep the cards you have). If you break(go over) 21 then you have busted, this means that you are outfor the rest of this hand.
Hit definition- when you want to get another card to get closer to 21, you can hit as many times as you want without going over 21.
Stay definition- when you want to keep the same cards you
have because you are confident you will beat your opponents hand, or you will bust if you hit.
Bust definition- when the sum of your cards value is over 21 and you have to stop for that hand, and your opponent wins the hand because you bust.
FACE VALUES:
Ace-either one or eleven(the players choice)
Two-2
three-3
Four-4
Five-5
Six-6
Seven-7
Eight-8
Nine-9
Ten-10
Jack-10
Queen-10
King-10
That is the face value for every card.

Step 3: Playing

Now decide who is going to be the dealer.
The dealer deals one card up and one down to himself and the other person.
Look at the card face down, add its value to the one on top. The dealer should do the same.
Hit or stay depending on your sum.
The person who's sum is closest to twenty-one gets all the cards used that hand.
At the end the person with the most cards, when there is no more cards in the deck, wins.
Thats the end, its a very simple game.

21 on your first two cards in a hand is called a natural. Just puttin' that out there. I'm not sure how the word blackjack fits into play, though. Also, this shows how to play normal blackjack. As well, the spacing and punctuation around your list of card values could use a little work. Otherwise, a pretty OK instructable..
