There is no
advantage or disadvantage in being the banker, it
is merely part of the ceremony, a hangover from
the older European versions of Online Baccarat Games
in which the holder of the bank has significant
advantages. The banker does not have to bet on the
bank if he chooses not to.
Players then make their bets, which can be on either
player, bank, or tie, or any combination of the
three. The "caller" says, "Card for
the player," followed by "Card for the
banker," then he repeats himself. The first
and third cards go to the official "player's
hand," which is held by whoever made the largest
bet on the player. The second and fourth cards are
dealt to the banker. The value of each hand is determined
by adding the value of the two cards. Aces count
as one, l0s and all face cards count as 0. Suits
are not important to the working of the games.
For any total over 9, only the last digit is taken.
For example, the 6 of Clubs and 7 of Spades produces
a total of 3. The object of the games is to get
a total as close to 9 as possible. Now, if either
player has an 8 or 9 with their first two cards,
it's called a "natural." Eight is commonly
called "le petit“ and 9 ”le grande.”
Either one wins outright unless the opposing hand
also has a natural. If neither hand has a natural,
then we first look at the player hand. If the player
holds a score between 0 and 5, the player draws
a third card; if the player holds a score of 6 or
7, the player stands. Now look at the banker's hand.
With a total from 0 to 2, the banker always draws,
with a 3 the bank draws unless the player drew and
its third card was an 8. With a 4, the bank draws
unless the player drew and its third card was either
an 8, 9, or an Ace.
|Force Them Out
or Keep Them In?
is a strong hand, and for all intents and purposes,
you will always win with it. In complete contrast
to a player who starts with two pair, you don't really
care how many opponents stick around for the draw,
since none of them can hurt you. Even if all of them
complete their draws, you are still going to win.
In fact, the more of them who stick around for the
draw, the better for you, since any of them who make
a good hand will lose a lot of their money to you.
The higher strength of your four aces makes you effectively
invulnerable to the number of opponents you face.
