Additional Privileges For A Natural

It is sometimes agreed that the holder of a natural Vingt-un, providing
the dealer has not also received a natural, shall be entitled to an amount
equal to, or double that of his own stake from each of the other players,
unless there be other Vingt-uns, the holders of which are exempted from
payment. This is the old fashioned method of playing the game, and in
many quarters the rule had been abolished, because, as the deal formerly
passed to the holder of the natural Vingt-un, who threw the dealer out,
that was considered sufficient reward for holding the two cards. Now,
however, that the deal merely passes to the next in order, it is desirable
that some further reward should follow from the best possible hand, and the
payment of a stake or a double from each player appears to be the fairest
method, especially as the declaration of a natural brings the deal nearer
to all. The same result may be achieved by agreeing that the contents of
a pool, for which provision has already been made, shall go to the player
declaring the natural.
