Baccarat is a card game, played in casinos around the world. It is a popular game, and is played in a wide range of styles.
The Rules of Baccarat
In a traditional baccarat game, the cards are dealt face down. The banker is dealt two cards, while the player is dealt two cards, and sometimes a third. The player tries to form a hand that is closer to nine than the banker’s.
The Player and Banker hands are then compared against each other to decide who wins. If the totals of both the player’s and the banker’s hands are equal to or less than nine, a third card is drawn. If the totals are 10 or more, no third card is drawn.
Known as ‘Chemin de Fer’, this version of baccarat is sometimes referred to as “railway baccarat” and was developed in France during the 19th century. Chemin de fer is a variant of the classic game, which is played in most casinos worldwide.
The best baccarat strategy is to follow trends and patterns in the betting patterns of both the banker and player. This is a simple and effective way to win.
The derived roads in a baccarat shoe are a series of red and blue symbols which indicate a pattern or trend. They do not necessarily correspond to a banker or player hand, but are used to indicate a trend in the cards being dealt to both players and the banker.
