Baccarat Games was originally a European games invented
and first played in Italy. The games became extremely
popular in France, and it still is one of the biggest
attractions in gambling casinos throughout Europe,
with several casinos on the Continent specializing
in the European version, known as chiming de far.
There is another version of the games, known as Online
Baccarat Games en banquet. Both of these games will
be discussed in later sections of this page.
The word "Online Baccarat Games" is the
French term for the Italian Online Baccarat Games
which means zero, and this refers to the face cards
(jack queen, and king) as well as the 10, all of which
have a zero value in the games.
What we'll be discussing primarily in this page is
the American version of Online Baccarat Games, played
in the Nevada and Atlantic City casinos.
The original version of Online Baccarat Games as played
in American casinos was chiming de far, in which the
gambler holding the bank plays against all the other
players at the table, who may also have a turn at
the bank once a player hand wins. The games was introduced
on the Strip in Las Vegas at the old Desert Inn Hotel
and Country Club, and thereafter at other Strip casinos.
In the 1960s the games was changed to Online Baccarat
Games, where the casino Siteed all the bets. Similar
versions of this games are played in some of the European
casinos. In the American version of Online Baccarat
Games the casino plays directly against all participants
at the table, whether they bet bank or player. And
since the bank hand, because of the intricate rules
of the games, always has an advantage over the player
hand, American casinos, to ensure their advantage,
extract a 5 percent commission on all winning bank
lower than JJ can still be playable if they have a
high kicker to go with them. By "high" I
mean higher than any other player's door card. This
is important for two reasons: It gives you a draw
to the highest two pair that is evident, and a player
with a higher door card would stymie you even if you
paired your kicker (you would have to put him on a
higher two pair or an easy draw to one). The rank
of the pair you start with will rarely matter because
it won't win by itself. Heads-up play is best for
you with a hand like this, but if you raise, you don't
want any callers. It's usually better to try to stay
in the hand cheaply-or fold if you can't.
