Baccarat is an exciting card game that was a featured plot device in the James Bond novel 'Casino Royale' by Ian Flemming. It originated in Italy during the middle ages and derives its name from the Italian word for "zero", because the face cards and Tens which normally are high value cards in most games are counted as zero in Baccarat. At some point it migrated to France where it was embraced by the aristocracy. Today, Baccarat is a favorite game of high rollers and famous gamers around the world.

    The Most Frequently Asked Question About Baccarat

    Baccarat is a well-known casino game. It is an unusual game as compared to other casino games. The game is easy to learn, but it has still been termed as a sophisticated one. Let us discuss more about baccarat.

    The most frequently asked question about baccarat is, you guessed it right, how to play the game? Well, the aim of the game is to have a hand of two or three cards that total nine or we need to get to close to nine. The best hand is the hand that sums up nine points in the first two cards. The next best hand is the hand that totals eight. Both eight and nine are known as natural hands. Only a hand that has a natural nine can beat a hand that has a natural eight. Players are not allowed to take a third card if any player or the bank has a hand, which is a natural hand, i.e., a natural eight or nine. If there is a tie then the bets are dismissed.

    Let me tell you more about baccarat. Aces have a value of one and a picture card has a value of 10. The other cards have the value that is displayed on the card, e.g., 8 means a value of 8, 9 means a value of 9 etc. During the game if any hand has a total that constitutes a double-digit figure, e.g., 17, 18, 19 etc, then the first digit is ignored.

    Usually the banker is the person who has the most money. The banker deals two cards each to two players and one to himself face down. People can bet on the players or on the banker. A player who has a value that is less than eight or nine can stand or he can get one more card but this time face up not face down. It is a well-known norm about baccarat that a person who has a value of four or less must draw a card and if a person has a value of six or seven he must stand.
