turn and can hold the bank as long as the
bank wins. Once the bank looses it moves on to the next player. Before the
cards are dealt each baccarat player has to make his bet.
The player with the bank deals two sets
of two cards, if of course the game is played by two players. The hand
closest to nine wins. If the first two cards dealt count Eight or Nine it
is called a "Natural" and wins automatically, unless both hands
have the same value then it is of course a Tie. When nobody has a natural
additional cards are drawn to determine the baccarat winner. If the hand
you bet on wins you get a one to one payoff. You can also bet on a Tie
where you get a one to eight payoff but a Tie is very rare, it occurs less
than once in ten hands. When there is a Tie and you did not bet on it
nobody looses or wins.
Value of the cards in Baccarat:
- Tens, Jacks, Queens and Kings count as
- The Ace counts as One.
- Cards from Two to Nine are at Face
At first the value of the cards might
seem a little odd, but it's really simple to understand. In Baccarat you
always have to keep in mind that the fist digit in a two-digit number does
not count. That is why the Ten, Jack, Queen and the King count 0 and the
Ace only one. This is not only the case with single card values but also
with the result of two cards combined. So if you draw an eight in baccarat
and a three, for instance, the value of both together would be eleven but
since the first digit does not count your hand counts only one.
Unlike in Black Jack it is impossible to
overdraw in Baccarat.
