Obviously, here is the initial code for this blackjack game. and in order for me to feel confident in this game I need to have an error check to make sure that there are at least 7 cards per player. And I have to do this in the second part of code listed below (cards).

Second part of code is below.

Should I write something like:
def check_cards(self, hands): if self.Card == 7: ##something to make the code keep going else: ##clear deck ##repopulate ##reshuffle
or should I implement that sort of code in the def deal?
