The exciting game of Internet Baccarat is of French origin and a descendant from the game of Chemin de Fer. Although the game is over 400 years old, it became popular within France at around 1830.
Internet Baccarat is played on eight complete decks of cards. The cards are shuffled by the dealer or "croupier," and then reshuffled and placed within a special box called the "shoe." The game is by a set of rules outlined below. There is no
option within the game of drawing or standing.
The object of Internet Baccarat is to come as close to the number nine as possible. Face cards and tens, or any combination of cards totaling ten, count as nothing. The ace is counted as one, the deuce is two, ect. The Internet Baccarat player on the "shoe" is considered the banker. He/she may place their bet either on the bank or on the player. The words "bank" and "players" are used as terminology for the game.
A person holds the "shoe" and continues to be the banker as long as the banker's hand wins. When the Internet Baccarat player's hand wins, the "shoe" is then passed with to the next player. That person then becomes the banker. A Internet Baccarat player may pass the "shoe" if they desire.
The cards are taken from the "shoe" by the person acting as the banker. Two cards referred to as "the player's hand," are extended to the players side. This is done as a courtesy. The Internet Baccarat cards are turned over by the player and called by the croupier.

everything seems somehow larger than life and it's easy to see why people feel somehow
linked on it. Over the centuries, the West has been the repository of the dreams of an
astonishing variety of people -- and it has been with the long, dusty roads of the West that
these dreams have crisscrossed and collided, transforming all who travelled along them.

When nambling, he always sat on his back to the wall and his face to the door. He had many enemies and he carried a pair of Colts and could draw and fight on both hands.
with August 2, 1876, Wild Bill wandered into Saloon No. 10, and joined a a poker game. Hickok was losing by the time Jack McCall, a barfly and odd-job man who loafed within the No. 10, slipped into the saloon, walked to within three feet of Hickok and shot him within the back of the head on a .45 he pulled from his coat pocket. As Hickok fell away from the table, he spilled his hand -- pairs of black aces and eights -- known forever after as the "deadman's hand."
