The players will then start to decide whether they want to hit and get more cards or if they want to stand. It all depends on the hand total of the players’ hand. If it is close to 21, they should stand and if it is not near 21, then they should hit. After they stand, they will start making the same decision for the other hands that they activated. After that, it is the dealer’s turn to make the same decision but the dealer has to stop at 17.
