    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class Deck {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
    int deal=(int)(11*Math.random()+1);

    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);



    int player;
    int dealer;

    // deal two cards to each player
    System.out.println(player=deal);
    System.out.println(player=deal);
    System.out.println(dealer=deal);
    System.out.println(dealer=deal);




    // variables for when each player is finished hitting
    boolean iamdone = false;
    boolean dealerDone = false;
    String answer;

    while(!iamdone || !dealerDone) {

    // player's turn
    if(!iamdone){
    System.out.print("Hit or Stay? (Enter H or S): ");
    answer = input.nextLine();


    // if the player hits
    if(answer.equals("H")) {

    // add next card and store whether we've busted
    System.out.println(player=deal);
    }
    else{
    iamdone = true;
    }
    }

    // dealer's turn
    if(!dealerDone) {
    System.out.println("The Dealer hits");
    System.out.println(dealer=deal);
    }
    else {
    System.out.println("The Dealer stays");
    dealerDone = true;
    }
    }
    }
    }

    do you have to deal correct cards like 2-10, J, Q, K, A? if so youll need to set the jqka to values and show them as J Q K A and also think about the Ace can be 1 or 11 and you can split with 2 of the same cards...how in depth are you supposed to get with this program?

    You do not have to go in depth. I just have to continue dealing numbers to the player and dealer if they hit if they pass 21 it's a bust.
