Baccarat Rules

[ English ]

Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards of a value less than ten are valued at their printed number while at the same time ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they simply symbolize the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards will now be played to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for every hand will be the grand total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of seven … 5 has a total score of two (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card might be given depending on the foll. guidelines:

- If the player or banker has a total score of eight or 9, the two bettors stand.

- If the bettor has five or less, he/she hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the bettor hits, a chart might be used to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores will be the winner. Winning bets on the banker pay nineteen to twenty (even money less a 5% commission. Commission is tracked and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure to have funds still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winner bets for tie commonly pay 8 to 1 and occasionally nine to one. (This is not a good bet as ties happen less than one every ten hands. be wary of putting money on a tie. Even so odds are remarkably better – nine to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

When played smartly, baccarat offers fairly decent odds, apart from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some common misconceptions. One of which is similar to a roulette myth. The past is never actually a predictor of future outcomes. Monitoring of old outcomes on a chart is for sure a waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most popular and probably most successful strategy is the 1-three-2-six scheme. This tactic is employed to build up profits and limiting risk.

Begin by wagering 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, clear away four so you have two on the third gamble. If you win the third wager, add two to the 4 on the table for a sum total of 6 on the fourth bet.

If you don’t win on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of two. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. A win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. In other words you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
