Card values: All cards from Ace (which is 1) to 9 have their face value. Others (10, Jack, Queen, King) are the “logs” and are zero value. The value of a game is obtained by adding, retaining only the digit. Example: a 2 and a 4 give a total of 6; a 4 and a 9 give a total of 3 (it retains only the units of 13).
Players are arranged in two “tables” and can bet on either one, the other or both “tables” at the same time. Banker plays against the two “tables” and takes a third card based on a drawing table.
This type of Baccara is called Baccarat Banque. There are variants such as Chemin de fer or Punto Banco.
