rules are printed clearly and available to all participants
at the Online Baccarat Games table. The rules are
there for the players' convenience, because the dealer
acts according to them without consulting the players
at the table.
As previously mentioned, the highest total any Online
Baccarat Games hand can have is 9. A 9 dealt on the
original two cards is called a natural and is an automatic
winner, and no further cards are drawn. An 8 is the
next best hand and that also is called a natural.
If there is no hand equal to or higher than the 8,
it is also an automatic winner, without additional
cards being drawn.
Should one hand hold a 9 and the other an 8, the higher
of the two naturals wins. Should both hands total
9 or both total 8, then it's a tie. All ties are standoffs,
and neither bank nor player wins.
With any other total, the rules have to be consulted.
You can see that the player never draws when holding
a 6-7-8-9. The 9 and 8 are naturals, of course. The
6 and 7 are very strong hands, which might be weakened
by drawing an additional card, and that's why they
always stand pat.
When a player holds a 1-2-3-4-5-10 (0), he will always
draw a card, except if the bank hand holds a natural,
in which case the player hand would lose immediately.

When looking for participants, broaden your search
beyond the circle of players you might already play
with. In terms of attributes and dispositions, enthusiastic
kiddie poker players and enthusiastic real poker players
don't necessarily have much in common. Brand new faces
might be more interested in playing authentic poker
than some of the guys you've been playing fake poker
with for years.
