If you are interested in learning to play baccarat so you do not really know much about it, it is better to start with the basics. Easy baccarat is not really a complicated game when you know it well.
To start a baccarat game, there must be at least two players — a banker, and the player who will fight it. Any of you can have two cards, first to you and then to the banker. Now, you can play — even if only one of you wins. A hand with 9 or closer to it but no more, this is the winner.
How do you know the value of a hand? Just simple. Cards from 1-9 have the same value as their number. For example, the ace heart has one point. The two diamonds have two points. Other cards like (10, King, Queen Jack, and Joker) have 0 points.
For example, you have 2 cards. Two and six. You have ocho. What if your card becomes more than 10? In baccarat, the original value is reduced by 10 to get a new one. For example you have 9 and 7, the original value you have is 16. When you subtract 10 you only have 6.
Now, it becomes more complicated if in the third bet, but you can not handle it. Common baccarat guidelines are:
- The third card is given if the banker and the player are sure to win — meaning they have 8 or 9.
- The third card is dealt when the player has less than or has a total of 5.
- The third card is dealt when the player has less than or has a total of 2.
- The player must stay when they hold 6 o7.
- The bagmaker must stay if he has a 7.
- When the value of the banker’s original card is one of 3, 4, 5, or 6, he remains when:
- when he has 3, and the player has 8.
- when he has 4, and the player has 0, 1, 8, or 9
- when he has 5, and the player has 0, 1, 2, 3, 8 or 9.
- when he has 6, and the player has 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 or 9.
