Have you ever played Elimination Blackjack…or Tournament Blackjack?
It’s pretty cool.
Elimination Blackjack or Tournament Blackjack is one of the most exciting games around. It is like a cross between a poker tournament and Blackjack all rolled up into one.
Just like in regular Blackjack, you play each hand against the dealer. You do not need to worry about the hand values of the other players. You are simply trying to collect the most chips within a set number of hands in order to survive eliminations and ultimately win the game.
Here are some exciting highlights of Elimination Blackjack:
You are trying to accumulate the largest amount of chips along the way.
The player with the least amount of chips after hands 8, 16 and 25 is eliminated.
To make it even more interesting, there is something called a Secret Bet. Each player has one Secret Bet per round, allowing you to bet a certain amount of chips without letting the other players know what your bet is. This introduces an element of bluffing not found in other versions of Blackjack.
Players may split, double down or surrender a hand.
If you lose your chips, you have busted out of the tournament.
