First of all, to play baccarat, its main objective is to have a card total value of 9 or closer to 9 than the banker's card. Each card has a corresponding value. The Ace card has a 1 or 11 value, and the number cards have their corresponding face value. The 10, jack, king and queen cards have a value of zero. However, if the value of the cards is more than ten, then subtract 10 from that total value. So that if you have a pair of cards that is 8 and 9 which has a total hand of 17, subtracting 10 from 17 will give you a card value of 7.

To start the play of baccarat, the dealer deals the pair of cards for the players and the banker. Before dealing the card, the player usually tries to inch his way around the game through the basis of the current dealings. He has also the capacity to issue a wager within the current tie, that is both hands are of the same value.

To play baccarat, the dealer deals about six to eight deck of cards from a shoe. Bets are being placed before the game starts. After the bets are placed, the banker's hand and the player's hand are then being determined by the results of the two or three pair of cards.

To play baccarat, the rule for the player's hand is if the player's first two cards has a value of 6 or more, then the player makes a "stand" and doesn't have to ask for the third card. On the other hand, if a player has a 5 or less total value of his first two cards, then he may have the option to ask for the third card.

To play baccarat, the rule for the banker is if the banker's hand is 7 for his first two cards, then the banker must "stand" and does not have to have a third card. However, if the banker's hand is from 0 to 2, he must draw another card. But if the value of the banker's card has a total of 3, 4, 5, or 6, then the option of the banker to draw another card is dependent on the player's move to draw another card also.

Baccarat is one of the simplest card game in the casino and to play baccarat with some strategies will surely give a player the full excitement and benefits of winning.
