Chermin de Fer Baccarat

Chermin de Fer is the French version of Baccarat. The translation of the words means Railway or Railroad. The Chermin de Fer version is not usually found in North America. In fact Nevada Baccarat is more common throughout the United States than any other. It is the most common version in Europe and of course that means France.

Chermin de Fer has the same rules for the objective and hand values. In other words you need to have a natural hand of 9 to win or at least higher than the other hand.

In Chermin de Fer there are a few differences to that of Baccarat in North America. In this version the role of the Banker or Banco will be slightly changed. In America you can have the casino provide a dealer or the players can rotate the deal. In Chermin de Fer the casino is not going to be the banker. In Chermin de Fer the players can wager on themselves or the bank/ player. In other words they are betting on either their hand or the player who is dealing the cards. If the player doesn't want the role they can pass it on to another player.

The casino's part in Chermin de Fer is to supply the equipment and location of the game. In this case that means the table, the cards, and they also make sure the player / Croupier knows the rules to follow. The casino will then take profits such as a 5 percent commission from the winning bets. That is the only way the casino is actually making money on the play. It is also the reason the commission or tax was started in the first place.

The rules do differ a little in the drawing of the cards. For example, the third card is usually given based on the card totals a hand is showing. In Chermin de Fer you have more of a chance to draw the third card. In the American Baccarat you need to have five or less for the player hand, but in Chermin de Fer you can stand or draw on the five. It helps to know which version you are playing so that you are able to get the cards you need for a win.
