Object Of Baccarat Game Rules And Strategies



The object of​ baccarat is​ to​ hold a​ hand with a​ point value closest to​ 9. Aces count as​ one; 2 through 9 as​ their face value; tens and​ face cards count as​ zero. if​ the​ value of​ the​ hand is​ ten points or​ more, subtract ten, and​ the​ remainder is​ the​ baccarat point value of​ the​ hand. for​ example: 7+4=14, subtract 10 for​ a​ point value of​ 4 for​ that hand. the​ game pits two hands against each other; the​ 'player' and​ the​ 'banker'. Don't be fooled; betting on the​ 'player' doesn't mean you actually are the​ player. the​ 'player' is​ just the​ opposing hand to​ the​ 'banker'.

You place your wager on the​ banker's hand and/or on the​ player's hand and/or on a​ tie. the​ player and​ the​ banker are then each dealt a​ two-card hand. Then, depending on those two cards, the​ player and/or banker may draw a​ third card. if​ either the​ player and/or the​ banker has a​ total of​ 8 or​ 9, they both stand and​ the​ game is​ over. if​ not, the​ rules on what hands get an​ additional card are already pre-determined, so all you have to​ do is​ sit back and​ watch (or pray, depending on how big your bet is).

The 'player's' hand is​ the​ first to​ act. Here are the​ rules for​ the​ 'player'.

• if​ dealt a​ hand with a​ point value of​ 6 or​ higher, the​ player stands (for instance a​ deuce and​ a​ four, or​ a​ three and​ a​ six, a​ queen and​ a​ seven, etc)

• if​ dealt a​ hand with a​ point value of​ 5 or​ lower the​ player takes one additional card.

The rules for​ the​ banker are a​ little more complicated. if​ you never really commit them to​ memory don't worry- 90% of​ your fellow baccarat player's are in​ the​ same boat. Here are the​ rules for​ the​ 'banker'.

• if​ the​ player stands, the​ banker hits on a​ total of​ five or​ less.

• if​ the​ banker has a​ total of​ eight or​ nine he stands no matter what.

The player closest to​ 9 at​ the​ end, wins.
If you bet on the​ player and​ the​ player wins, you are paid 2 to​ 1 winnings on your bet.
If you bet on the​ banker and​ the​ banker wins, you are paid 2 to​ 1 minus 5% bank commission.
If both the​ player's hand and​ the​ banker's hand have equal totals, the​ game result is​ a​ 'tie'. if​ you have placed a​ bet on the​ 'tie' field, your payoff is​ 9 to​ 1.
