Baccarat Basics

Although there are a few variations, the version you will find online (and perhaps live one day) is Punto Baccarat.

o Hands are called coups.

o A croupier manages the table, dealers at either end help settle the bets.

o The casino banks the game.

o The croupier deals cards for “the player” and “the banker”.

o There are three bets Player, Banker or Tie.

o Player win pays 1 to 1, Bank win pays 19 to 20 (house gets 5% commission), Tie pays 8 to 1.

o Cards are dealt from a shoe of 6 to 8 decks.

o The drawing of cards is set by rule for “the player” and “the banker”.

o Aces represent 1 point, 2-9 represent face value, 10 and face cards are valued 0.

“The Player”

 As with blackjack, the player coup is played out prior to the banker coup.

o The player receives two cards. The two cards are added together based on the above point system. The coup value is 0-9 based on the value of the 1’s digit of the sum (2+3=5 (5), 6+7=13 (3), Jack+8=8 (8)).

o If the initial coup value is 0-5 a third card is drawn. Its value is added to the hand for reevaluation.

o If the initial coup value is 6-7, the player stands.

o If the initial coup value is 8 or 9, a natural is declared. No more cards will be drawn and the banker hand is evaluated to settle the bet.

“The Banker”

 The banker play is more complicated than the player thus acquiring the edge in the game.

o If the player stood pat, the banker plays with the same rules which had previously applied to the player (draw 0-5, stand 6-7).

o If the player drew a third card the following rules apply:

  • Banker has total of 0, 1, 2: Banker always draws a third card.
  • Banker has total of 3: Banker draws if Player’s Third Card is 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-9-0 (not 8)
  • Banker has total of 4: Banker draws if Player’s Third Card is 2-3-4-5-6-7
  • Banker has total of 5: Banker draws if Player’s Third Card is 4-5-6-7
  • Banker has total of 6: Banker draws if Player’s Third Card is 6-7
  • Banker has total of 7: Banker always stands.
