Blackjack is a simple game, but it has many unusual nuiances that take a bit of explaining, and this is one of them.
First a few assumptions: 1.
By "two people" I will assume you blackjack dealer tie the dealer and a player or any number of players for that matter.
Ties between players are irrelevant, as every player plays against the dealer only and not each other.
If your hand is better than the dealers you win your bet, if it is worse you lose your bet, and if it is tie or "push", in blackjack terminology, with the twister race ipoker then you keep your original bet but win nothing.
What the other players hands are does not factor into whether you win or lose, only what you have compared to the dealer.
By 21, I will assume you mean a blackjack.
A blackjack is an blackjack dealer tie before splitting 2 card hand that equals 21, in other words a ten value card and an ace for example a king and an ace.
A hand of 21 is ranked lower than a blackjack, and is a hand made up of at least 3 original cards for example 6, 7 and 8or a two card blackjack dealer tie created after splitting for example if your original hand was two aces and you split them and got a ten blackjack dealer tie card on each ace, you'd have two 21 hands and not two blackjacks.
OK, in the case that the dealer might have a blackjack and a player or any number of players have blackjack, then there are 2 possibilities: 1.
If the dealer has a 10 value up card, they will immediately peek at the bottom card, and if that card is an ace, they will flip it up and declare a blackjack.
Only players that also have a blackjack get to keep their money, everyone else loses their bets right then.
The cards are then collected and a new round is dealt out.
The more interesting nuiance case is when the dealer has an ace as their up card.
With an ace showing the dealer will ask for "Insurance?
Insurance is an optional side bet on whether or not the dealer has a 10 value hole card.
A player may bet up to half of their original bet on insurance.
If the dealer has a 10 value hole card, they will flip it up, declare a blackjack, and pay insurance bets twice their value, while all the other players that don't have a blackjack too will lose their original bets.
In the event that the dealer does not have a 10 value hole card then the insurance blackjack dealer tie are lost and play continues normally.
Now for one final nuiance.
If a player has a blackjack and does not take the insurance, the dealer in some casinos will offer them "Even money?
The "Even Money" option is equivalent to a player with a blackjack winning an insurance bet and pushing on their blackjack, or losing the insurance bet and winning 1.
Players play against the dealer not each other.
If you tie ie push the dealer no money changes hands.
click to see more than a 21 3 or more cards, or 2 or more cards after a split 4.
If the dealer's top card is a 10, and the peeked bottom card is an ace, a blackjack will be declared immediately and everyone loses except the players that push with their own blackjacks.
If the dealer's up card is an ace, they will ask, for insurance, and if players with blackjacks want even money, before checking their hole card for a 10 value.
Insurance bets are resolved blackjack dealer tie peeking at the hole card, and in the even of a dealer blackjack, all players without a blackjack lose their bets immediately.
Hope this all made sense, learn more here helps.
The other player's card do not affect the game.
If both the dealer and player have a non-blackjack 21, it is considered a push.
You neither win nor lose.
You keep your original bet.
If the dealer gets 21 also, then it is a "push" and neither play wins nor loses, they just get their own money back.
At the start of a Blackjack game, the players and the dealer receive two. If both the player and dealer have Blackjack, the result is a push (tie): ...
