Poker Tips

Second question of the day (visio one just below was first) hope I am not pushing my luck. Have been roped into a poker game tonight. 6 players, 4 strangers, texas holdem, never played for money with more than one person, have no poker face and no basic strategy. Could anyone point me to a page or give me a golden rule or advice or something that I can use to get me through. I will learn the rules myself. Something I can get into my head in about an hour.

Can you destroy your cards in Baccarat?

GamblingFilter: Last week on The Casino, there was a big deal made about these two high-rollers mangling their cards while playing Baccarat. They kept pointing out that Baccarat was the only game where you can destroy the cards while playing. The casino's complaint was that they were mangling them too much, and the cameras and the dealer couldn't tell what the cards were anymore. But if you're mangling the cards because you're angry you lost, why do they need to see what the cards were anymore? And if you're able to mangle them, obviously they're not reusing them, right? And why can you destroy the cards anyway? All the sites I've found with the rules for Baccarat say nothing about destroying cards.
