Third Card Baccarat Rules for the Player and the Banker.

Browse By

So we now know how the initial hand works in baccarat rules. But what are the other rules of baccarat that apply from this point onwards? If the initial hand of any party is worth an 8 or a 9. Then no more cards are drawn and a banker, player, or tie outcome can be declared for that round. If this does not occur, then a third card will be dealt. 

If the player has five or fewer points, then the player’s hand will draw a third card. The third card is always dealt face up. However, the rules of the banker are different. If the player does not draw a third card. Then the same rules broadly apply. UFABET The banker will draw a card if he has 5 or fewer points, or they can stand on a 6 or 7 hand. 

But if the player does draw a third card, then the following rules for the banker apply: 

  • Banker score 0, 1, or 2: draw a third card
  • Banker score 3: draw a third card, unless the player’s third card is an 8
  • Banker score 4: draw a third card only if the player’s third card is 2-7
  • Banker score 5: draw a third card only if the player’s third card is 4-7
  • Banker score 6: draw a third card only if the player’s third card is 6 or 7
  • Banker score 7: stand pat 

But don’t worry about remembering all these rules, as Michael Shackleford explains: “You don’t have to memorise those rules to play the game. The dealer has those rules memorised and will follow them when dealing third cards. Those rules are the same in all three types of baccarat that we’ve talked about.”
