The original version of this explanation of the rules of blackjack has a very long history here at BlackjackInfo.com. I created and published it here sometime in 1998. It was widely copied by other sites, and it has appeared without my permission on literally hundreds of sites over the years. When I relaunched BlackjackInfo with a new mobile-friendly design in 2014, I took the opportunity to rewrite much of the article, and break it into sections for easier reading on mobile devices.
