In the context of blackjack, to stand means to refuse the dealer‘s offer of another card and to end one’s turn. During their turn, the blackjack player’s other option is to hit (ask for an extra card).
New players will typically decide to stand when they reach a score of 17. Gamblers playing using basic strategy will stand when the system tells them to. Players who know how to count cards will use that information to decide when to stand.
