The course of Game Baccarat
The main aim of this baccarat game is to get closer to total 9 on either hand. The shoe begins with betting. The betting can be done on player or banker or tie. After betting, each of the players and banker gets two initial cards. Everyone face ups their cards and sum up the total value of both the cards, the digits in tens place are dropped, making the ones place digit as the score. To understand say player hand reads 8 and 5,than their sum of the cards is 13,the value of hand is 3.If any hand is dealt with 9 and 10 as initial 2 cards (Sum = 19, score = 9) then it is called Natural 9 and it’s the strongest hand in baccarat. If any hand is dealt with 8 and 10 as initial 2 cards (sum=18, score=8) than it is called Natural 8 and it’s the second strongest hand in baccarat. If either player or banker dealt with score of 8 or 9 on the first two cards, than no further cards are drawn and this rule overrides all other rules.

Always start low and if luck seems sparkling then increase the bet amount gradually. Not much logic but risky gamble, betting on the banker will prove beneficial. Beware of Shills(casino employees) who actually play the table to keep action going.
