Baccarat Quiz: Answers 1 - 5
1) A. 8 Decks are held in the shoe.

2) B. The answer is Number 9, Number 9, Number 9.

3) C. Cards, 2 through 9, count as their face value. 10’s and face cards count as 10.  Aces count as 1. If the count is more than 9, the last digit of the total is used.
So, if the hand has a Jack (10) and a 7, then it totals not 17, but 7.

4) A. 5%. Remember, when you are finished playing, this commission is payable.

5) C. At 14% Casino Advantage, this is not a recommended bet.

6) B. Bank will win approx. 38 times, Player: 36 wins, and 8 ties.

7) B. Cards more favorable to the bank hand are King, Queen and Jack.

8) A. Cards more favorable to the player hand are 2, 3, and 4.  Ace, 6 and 8 are neutral. Bank hands win more because the bank stands on a 7, 8 or 9, while player stands on  6, 7, 8 and 9. Bank can draw on a 6 where player cannot. Ahh, now, there’s the rub.

9) C. Punto means Player—that’s you and I.

10) B. The French term La Grande means a Natural Nine. May all your Baccarat hands be ‘Grande’
