You are playing blackjack and get an ace and a 6.  The dealer's up card is a 6.  What should you do? Hit, stand, or double?  (There are no other players)

 

basic vocabulary: Hit, get another card (this can be done repeatedly until you choose to stop or bust).  Stand, you don't need another card.  Double, is to add additional money to your initial bet on the terms that you are dealt one, and only one more card, you will receive no additional cards after doubling. You can double for UP TO the amount of your initial bet.  Splitting, is not an option in this case and so won't be defined.

 
Lastly, the dealer will 'act' or make their play (hit or stand) after you finish with yours.

I forgot to mention that in black jack you are trying to get 21 points without going over, an Ace is worth either 1 or 11, the player who has it can choose which, and all face cards are worth 10.
