In 2-player spades there is no deal per se. Instead, the deck is placed face-down in the middle and two players take turns to draw 13 cards each.
At your turn, you draw the top card by dragging it. Once you start drawing a card, it will open up for your eyes only.
You look at this open card and decide whether you want to keep it or discard it:
If you want to keep it you put it in your hand, and then the next card that you could have drawn is shown to you & discarded
If you decide not to keep the first card, you discard in the discard pile to the right and then draw and keep the next card (it will go into your hand automatically to increase game speed).
It will then be your opponent's turn to draw. This continues until all cards have been chosen and discarded. You then each have a hand of 13 cards.
The object of the game is to be the first to score the agreed-upon number of points (default -- 300 points). Points are earned by winning tricks according to bids declared prior to playing.
