Baccarat 3rd Card Rules

In Baccarat there are always four cards dealt to begin a round. The sequence is always: Player/Banker/Player/Banker. A two-card total is then determined for both sides. Aces always count as one, while Tens and Face Cards have a value of zero. For any two-card total greater than 9 Simply disregard the first digit.

Example: 9 & 7 = 16 the count is 6 If the first two cards for either side = 8 or 9 it is a Natural and there will be no third card drawn for either side. The same addition holds true if a third card draw is necessary for either side. Example: 7 & 7 & 9 = 23 the count is 3.

Here are the Baccarat Rules for the Player and Banker Sides

Players Side:
First Two Cards Having a Total of 0,1,2,3,4,5 Draws a Third Card (Unless the Bank Side has a Natural 8 or 9)
6 or 7 Stands

Bank Side:
First Two Cards Have a Total of 0,1,2, Draws a Third Card (Unless Player Side has a Natural 8 or 9)
