| How To Play
Baccarat is played from a six-deck or an eight-deck shoe
The casino ("House") has no involvement in the
game, other than to take 5% commission on the Bank's winning
hands. Chemin De Fer is a one-on-one game where the players
wager amongst themselves. Each player can be a Banker in
The card dealer gives two cards each; first to the Player
("Punto") and then the Banker ("Banco").
A third card may be dealt to either or both the Player
and the Bank if they wish.
All face cards (Kings, Queens, Jacks) and 10s have no value.
Cards less than 10 are counted at face value, Aces are worth
1. Suits do not have any significance.
Only single digit values are valid. Any total that reaches
a double digit drops the left digit, so 15 is counted as
5 and 25 is also counted as 5 etc.
The winner is the hand closest to 9.
