After you have looked at your hand and the dealer’s initial card, you have to either make a call bet or surrender. The call wager’s value is akin to your original bet, which means that the risks will have increased two fold. Abandoning means that your ante goes instantly to the casino. After the wager is the conclusion. If the casino doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is given back, including a sum in accordance with the initial bet.
