Each of the player then look in their cards without letting the other players see it. But the cards of the dealer remain in a face down position. If one of the cards of the player is an ace, it can be shown to other players in the game to give them the option if they want to surrender or not.

The player can also choose to split, which allows the player to divide their hand and group it in pairs. If the player chooses to deal, it only means that the player is ready to lay down their cards and compare the cards value to the cards of the dealer to determine the winner.
