Blackjack Switch and Baccarat – Dealing Procedure

Baccarat, Blackjack / Friday, March 9th, 2018

Blackjack Switch is a variant of blackjack in which a player is dealt two hands and is allowed to swap the top two cards between hands.

If you as a player are dealt 10 and 5 and knight and 7 in each hand, you can swap your cards and form your best hands with 21 and 12, in this example. Payouts in this kind of blackjack is 1:1. A dealer 22 is a push.

It seems obvious when you should change your cards. As a general rule: You should always be concerned about making one good single hand. Blackjack is paid immediately.

This is important in this variation because of the push when dealer hits 22, this comes into play when you might decide to keep two good hands against a bad dealer card instead of taking the automatic payout of the blackjack.


Baccarat is a casino card game. The game exists in one of three ways: Baccarat chemin de ferBaccarat banque (or á deux tableaux) and Punto Banco (north-american Baccarat).

The last one is a real game of luck. The tow first ones involves skills as an important part of the game.

Baccarat is a game with three possible outcomes: Player, Banker and Tie. These has nothing to do with a player or a bank, they are just possibilities to bet on.

In Baccarat the cards 2-9 are worth their value. 10s, knight, queen and king is woth 0. The ace is worth 1 point. The players calculate the values on their cards and extract the last digit. 6+6=12=2. Baccarat is 4-6=10=0. Baccarat is in other words your worst possible hand!

Your highest hand will be 9.

The cards are dealt facing down.
