Baccarat is an incredibly popular casino game, so many players learn it in just a few days of learning it. Baccarat is played with two decks of cards, called “brands”. Each player is dealt a hand of cards, three cards face up on the table and one card hidden from all the other players. The banker is the person who deals out the cards to the players. In addition to having the cards dealt, the banker also places the cards in the appropriate spots on the table, according to what position the cards are supposed to be in.
A baccarat dealer can either be a professional dealer or someone who has been playing the game for some time. When players place bets, they do not do so with paper money, but with chips, which are called “baccarat chips”. In most casinos, players have to bet using real money or their credit cards. Before a player can make a bet, he must pay off his bet with a set number of baccarat chips. The number of chips that a player pays when he bets, is known as his bankroll.
The first baccarat rules are that players play baccarat by laying out their bets. This means that there is a pre-determined amount of money that each player will bet, and this is known as the “buy in”, “base” or “stake”. In order for a player to win, he must either win his buy in, or else lose his stake, which is the amount of baccarat that he has paid. This is referred to as a “tie”.
After all the bets have been made, the players in a game play baccarat by rolling the baccarat wheel. The first two numbers on the wheel are called the “pens”, and these represent the initial points that a player has to win. The point total that a player wins is equal to the total of the three pens rolled. The person that has the highest point total at the end of the game wins. Players can place more than one bet on a single card. However, if a player has to leave the game because his winning bid was higher than the last bid made then he has to leave at least that much money in his bankroll.
Baccarat is played in two hands. These hands are known as the “iced” decks, and the “hot” decks. The “iced” decks are normally dealt from two decks of cards, called “pre-dealers”. These pre-dealers are laminated or sealed so that they cannot be flipped over, and so they do not contain any additional cards.
The “hot” baccarat decks are opened to reveal the cards, and are then dealt from these two decks. The “pre-dealers” are not laminated or sealed, but placed upon tables for the players to see. Once all the players have seen their cards, the dealer reveals the pre-dealers, and the players will split their stakes between them. If the player’s stake wins, the other players’ stakes are refunded.
