To start, there are as many as 270 combinations considering 10 dealer up cards multiplied by the 27 possible player hands. What’s an up card? It’s exactly that, a card that the dealer leaves facingup. What’s great about this game is that you don’t have to memorize a bunch of rules to play it. All you need is a general understanding of how things work in this game if you against thedealer.
