The most important thing to remember is that, unlike in blackjack, the Baccarat cards you are subsequently dealt are based on your current hand. You do not have the option to “stick” or “hit” for your next card. As you will be dealt a card if your initial hand falls below a 6 or above a 10.
“There is no free will in baccarat anymore.” says. “There are set rules that dictate whether each hand takes a third card. In chemin de fer, which is what James Bond famously played, players had some free will. But around the 1980’s this game turned into the faster version that we see today.”UFABET
This means that baccarat truly is a game of pure luck and that you have no decisions to make once your hand has been dealt and your bet has been placed. It is also worth noting that, if your first hand is above 10 (say, a 9 and a 6 = 15). Then the first digit of your total is dropped to give you the true value of the hand (15 = 5).
With that in mind, let’s break down the all-important baccarat cards values.
- Aces: 1 point
- 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s: face value
- 10s: 0 points
- Queens, Jacks, Kings: 0 points
With these rules, the true value of your hand is always going to value between 0 and 9 points. The “double-digit” rule described above also applies to your third card. Simply leave the terminal digit to see the actual value of your hand (i.e. 9 + 6 + 3 (18) = 8).
