1) There are 4 Games of Baccarat:

- European Baccarat

- Baccarat chemin de fer

- Punto Banco or American Baccarat.

- Baccarat bBanque

The rules are the same for all 4 types of baccarat mentioned above. Anywhere from 6 to 12 players can play the game according to the variant beong played and one will need between 6 to 8 card decks.

2) Baccarat can be played on either a mini table which seats fewer players or a normal table.

There are special markings to distinguish between the type of table. You will see the following markings on the table - Banker, Player & Tie - which identifies the bets.

3) Each card is given a specific value. For instance the Ace is 1, whilst the 10, Jack, Queen & King have 0 value.

All other cards carry their face value. So a 7 is valued 7 and so on. The object is to get closer to nine than the banker by adding the value of your cards.

If the total is greater than 10 then you must drop the first digit. So if your total is 12 then you drop the 1 and your total is 2. Hence the maximum total any player can draw is 9.

4) As you can guess there are only 3 possible outcomes, the banker wins, the player wins or there is a tie. Believe it or not but the probability of a tie is greater than either of the other 2 outcomes.

A savy player will always be calculating the probability of the different outcomes which varies according to the number of decks in use and the order in which the cards are drawn.

5) When play is about to start you will notice there are 3 persons representing the casino. First there is the person who shuffles or mixes the decks, then there are 2 dealers a main dealer and a secondary dealer.

They take turns dealing in an anticlockwise direction over 4 rounds of betting by players. Only after players have placed their stakes will distribution of the cards by the mian dealetr begin.

6) The game starts when the dealer deals 4 cards face down on the table. Whoever has the biggest bet on the table gets to see the cards first. Then rule #3 above comes into play.

7) Players can choose to play baccarat as either a game of chance, or as a game of skill.

8) Playing baccarat as a game of chance requires very little further explanation. Players simply guess which way they want to bet each time.

9) Playing baccarat as a game of skill is done by charting the number of player hands won and, the number of banker hands won and the number of hands that tied.

By charting the patterns or the winning hands in the game, players are better able to plan for the next hand.

And with a little practice, you will notice that the baccarat game rules are not very hard to follow.
