How to Play Baccarat Table Games

Baccarat is a comparing card game played between two hands, the "player" and the "banker." Each baccarat coup has three possible outcomes: "player" (player has the higher score), "banker," and "tie." The goal is to hold a hand that totals 9 or as close to 9 as possible.

Usually eight decks of cards are used in Baccarat, the cards are given point values as follows: Ace = 1, 2-9 = pip value, 10 and face cards = 0. Cards 2–9 are worth face value, 10s and J, Q K are worth zero, and Aces are worth 1 point. Hands are valued according to the rightmost digit of the sum of their constituent cards: for example, a hand of 2 and 3 is worth 5, but a hand consisting of 6 and 7 is worth 3 (the rightmost digit of the total, 13).

The highest possible hand value is 9. In the game, a "Baccarat" refers to anything with a value of zero; in a hand of K, 4 and 6, the King is a "baccarat," and the hand value is also "baccarat."

For example, if you are dealt 6+7=13=3. If you find yourself holding a 6+4=10=0, that is a "baccarat." When you are holding an 8 or 9 on your first two dealt cards, then you are a "natural" winner.

Banker and Player Hands
- If Player has an initial total of 0–5, he draws a third card
- If Player has an initial total of 6 or 7, he stands
- If the banker total is 2 or less, then the banker draws a card, regardless of what the player's third card
- If the banker total is 3, then the bank draws a third card unless the player's third card was an 8 (125)
- If the banker total is 4, then the bank draws a third card if the player's third card was 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
- If the banker total is 5, then the bank draws a third card if the player's third card was 4, 5, 6, or 7
- If the banker total is 6, then the bank draws a third card if the player's third card was a 6 or 7
- If the banker total is 7, then the banker stands
