Key Rules for Beginners
Baccarat card game, rules:

Two decks are used to play the game. One of them is first shuffled by the player and then by the banker. The banker can move some of the cards to the end of the deck but he needs to inform the players about this.
The players are kneaded in any order, not card by card.
The banker can be an individual on a permanent basis or the banker can be one of the players. And with each completion of the game, such a player can change, meaning the banker will be a different person each time.
Baccarat card game has an important difference from other gambling games of this type: most often, the rules do not impose restrictions on the number of players, so they can be an unlimited number, and they can leave or join the game at the allowed stages. However in some versions of the game a maximum of 14 players is allowed.
When the shuffle is finished one of the players removes his deck at the banker's request.
The dealing of cards begins. First each player is dealt one card from left to right and then another card from right to left. All players and the banker each receive two cards.
The cards dealt only count towards their score.
Before the cards are dealt, each player must place a money amount beside himself, which he bets and runs the risk of losing. The banker doubles the amount of money laid out.
The aim of the game is to score a winning combination of points. Nine points are taken for a win.
There are numbers from 2 to 9 in the game, they are equivalent to the corresponding points. An Ace is taken as 1 point. Figures and numbers 10 are equivalent to zero.
Baccarat rules for beginners
All of the banker's cards take priority over the player's cards when they are the same. In this case, it is the banker who will collect the bet.
Special rules apply if the banker has a lucky number: if he has a 9 and opens, he takes all bets of the players, even if someone else had a similar hand to the banker. If he has an 8, but one of the players has a 9, the banker takes bets from all players except that one, paying his bet. If more than one player has a 9, the payout will be given to each player.
After the cards have been dealt, the counting of points begins and the winner is determined by the number of points.
The principle of determining the winner is simple: whoever gets 9 points wins and gets the payout. It's important to keep the banker in mind. He only pays out the payout to those with more points than he does. If a player has less points, the banker keeps his bet. If more than one player has the same number as the banker, the bets of all players are added up and the players and the banker both get an equal payout, divided between them.
The 10 is called baccarat, and there is a calculation for calculating the points: if the total points are equal to or greater than ten, ten is subtracted from the total and only the remaining points are counted in the final tally.
An important point to keep in mind: the third card is dealt. This occurs when a player has scored between 0 and 5 points for the first two cards. If more than 5 points are gained, no third card is dealt. If the banker scores between 0 and 4 points for the first two cards, the third card is dealt. If the banker has more than 5 points, the third card is not dealt. If the banker has exactly 5 points, the third card may or may not be given. The decision in this case depends on the situation of the players.
In summary, if the banker scores more points, the Banker bet wins. If the player scores more points, the Player bet wins. If the scores were tied, the Pot and Player bets are returned, the Tie bet wins.
