    BlackJack

    Ive been learning C for less then a month now anyway I think its time i put some use to what ive learnt so far anyway I though why not make a very simple console game of Blackjack. The only problem is I dont know every single bit about blackjack. Ive searched on google but there doesnt seem to be very good resources well the sites I saw anyway most were just ads everywhere. I was wondering if anyone knew a site that may enlighten me. I know the basics but it doesnt help me in all situations.

    What do you know? That'd help. Blackjack's a pretty simple game.

    It's simple unless you try and card count. If you try and do that it can be pretty hard, but without card counting there are plenty of tables on the web that give you what move you should make based on your cards and the card turned up for the dealer.

    Well i knew the basics like card count e.g. Ace and King = BJ But it was the things like double. Ill probably only put in simple ones like hit, stand and double and skip insurance.

    Hehe... Thats not exactly what he means by card counting...
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Are you experienced enough to make decent enemy AI?

    A decent enemy AI? You mean have the computer opponents count cards?

    I was thinking more along the lines of having the enemy know exactly what card is on top of the deck.

    That's my definition of decent.

    Well at the moment I was only making it dealer vs user, extend on it later on. I dont think it would be hard to see if the dealer and or *enemy* knew what the next card was. All I wanted was the basics working.

    That's not decent, that's cheating. Dealers in a casino don't really need a lot of intelligence. If they're below a certain number, they have to hit, and above they have to stand. Usually if the dealer has 17 or above at any time they have to stand; anything below and they have to hit.

    Given, but I meant that the rules of blackjack are simple. Counting cards can easily be left to the player himself.

    I need to be less subtle about my sarcasm.
