The Basics Of Live Baccarat
Suave and sophisticated, words used to describe the intriguing game of Baccarat, maybe due to its association with James Bond 007, who played the game in five of his movies. Baccarat is not a complicated game, but it is unique. Take its name, it derives from the Italian and refers to the worst hand in a game, zero. There are three accepted variations of Baccarat that you can find in the online casinos, Chemin de Fer, Baccarat Banque and Punto Blanco and do not get surprised if even more appears.
In baccarat the outcomes are not overly complex, you are looking at three possible outcomes; one where the Banker wins, one where the Player wins, or a Tie. You get to pick which of the three it could be. There is a simplicity to the game, that adds to its allure. There is no card counting, no decision to make whether to hit or split. It is the thrill of anticipation, the pleasure and adrenaline rush that come with betting on an unknown outcome that makes this game so popular.

Tips For Beginners
If you are new to Baccarat it can seem quite mysterious on first viewing but it can be quickly learnt. Winning on live Baccarat is about which of the dealt cards are the closest to 9. Knowing the card values is essential; two through nine are face value. Ten, Jack, Queen & King have a value of zero. The ace has a value of one. Once you open at the table you will see the dealer seated with the table in front of them, with the ‘shoe’ the box with the cards in to the right of your screen.
At the bottom of the table, you will see the chips with the betting amount on them. Before the croupier deals the cards in Live Baccarat, you select your wager amount and place it on Player, Banker or Tie. These can all be found in the box above the chips. Two cards, one by one, are dealt to both, which the dealer positions face down. Once down, the croupier then turns them face up. Depending on the totals another card can be dealt too each.
The standard rules
To make a card game interesting, consistent and above all limit any cheating there has to rules. The first thing a new player has to understand in Live Baccarat is how the scoring works. If the total sum of the cards on the table is 10 upwards, the rightmost figure is used. In this example that would be zero. If the sum was 16 the first digit is dropped and the value would be six. If either player gets a score of eight or nine both Banker and Player stand.
There are also rules regarding the third card in Baccarat. The player’s cards are always played first. If their total score is 0 - 5 then a third card can be drawn, or the player can stand. If he stands and the banker gets 5 or less, he has a hit. Banker rules are slightly more complex as they are governed by what the player has. It is worth remembering that ‘Player’ and ‘Banker’ are relative terms; the bettors, you, can select either for your wager.
Tips And Tricks
Live Baccarat is a game of chance, it does not demand you learn a set of complex strategies or combinations. It is important to know the simple rules of the game to understand your wins and losses. With online Baccarat, the dealer will inform you if you have a win or loss but it’s much more fun to know how this is decided. That said, some Baccarat players do create strategies, and to do this, they use the information tables or ‘roadmaps’ that are displayed on your screen.
Roadmaps show the history of the game. These are used to predict trends, not an exact science but can be a smart approach to betting on the game. First set yourself a limit for loss and wins and stick to them. Then look for a repeating sequence and place your lowest wager on the last winning position. Continue to bet on that selection until you lose. Following a loss, double the bet and place on the last winning position until you lose. Then, reduce to minimum bet and continue with the strategy until you reach one of your limits.
