The Game of Baccarat
How the Game of Baccarat is Played!

This ancient game is played with 8 decks of cards. The cards are shuffled and placed in a box called a "shoe" to be dealt.

Those participating in the game place a wager on either Banker or Player. Two hands, of two cards each are dealt from the shoe. Later, a third card may be required for either hand. The first hand represents those betting on Player, the second hand represents those betting on Banker. The winning hand is the one which totals the closest to 9. Tens, cards totaling ten and picture cards count nothing. Ace is counted as one, deuce as two, etc. If the cards total a two digit number, only the last number counts (i.e. 7+8=15; 15 counts as 5).

The cards are dealt from the shoe by those wagering on the game. The shoe is passed one person to the right each time Player wins or if the person dealing elects to pass the shoe.

The hand representing Player is given face down to the person with the largest wager...
