Nine is the magic number.

Think Nine in Live Baccarat. The first thing you want to do is create a hand with a total of nine in only two or three cards. Eight is ok, but nine is the goal on the total cards in your hand. The perfect hand would be a hand that has only two cards with the value of the two combined being nine. The second best hand in live baccarat is this same set up but with the value being eight. These two hands are referred to as “natural nine” or “natural eight”. Here’s the fun part, when one player has one of these “natural” hands then none of the other players may draw a third card. That’s fun isn’t it? This even includes the banker. The player with the natural eight or natural nine wins the hand immediately.
