Baccarat Basics and Simple Winnings

Baccarat Information What type of Baccarat do you want to play? Perhaps, you would like its French original version the Chemin de Fer. How about the more modified one, the European baccarat? How about the American Baccarat, would you like to try this mixed variation of the first and second type of baccarat? Maybe, you would be interested what the fictional British agent fond of playing - Baccarat Banque. No matter what type or kind of baccarat, do you want to try or to play; all of the abovementioned (types) have uniform terminologies and objectives (for playing). However, let us first know the 2 tables used in baccarat. There is the so-called mini table and the other one known as traditional (baccarat) table. The most noticeable feature between the two is their size. Perhaps, we could deduce that the bigger (the size), the more players can sit down and play and the more labels and markings put into the baccarat table. The next thing one must learn about baccarat is the card values. Aces are ones, Faces and Tens are of void (zero) values. The other cards (from 2 to 9) take their original value. The symbols or most commonly known as suites are of less importance here in baccarat. In counting the card (values) we apply this mathematical principle of "modulo ten." It simply means that we take out the tens digit. Remember, that's the reason why a Ten (card) is said to have a null value. (10 mod 10 = 0)For example, you get a 6 of diamonds and 5 of spades. The total is eleven, isn't it? However, in baccarat we remove the tens digit. So our total is only one. How to win in baccarat? Since the highest possible card value is 9, each player aims to get that value for a sure crack on the pot. Otherwise, players must beat or out value the dealer. Typically, a baccarat match is between the dealer and a player. So for example, there are 2 players. The dealer will try to beat each player separately. Let us assume that Player 1 has a card total of 7. Player 2 has a card total of 4. Finally, the dealer has a value of 5. So what happens here; is that Player 1 wins against the dealer. He / she will be paid accordingly. On the other hand, Player 2 loses so all his bets will be collected. However, it is not necessarily that Player 2's chips will be given to the other player.
