Blackjack is a table game, whereby you compare your cards to the dealer's cards. You are only competing with the dealer and not the other players at the table. The objective, is to beat the dealer's hand.

You can beat the dealer in three of the following ways: Get 21 points on the player's first two cards (called a "blackjack" or "natural"), without a dealer blackjack;Reach a final score higher than the dealer without exceeding 21; or Let the dealer draw additional cards until his or her hand exceeds 21.
