Baccarat Rules

[ English ]

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards that are valued under ten are of their printed value while ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual players; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

2 hands of 2 cards shall then be played to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for each hand will be the sum total of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is removed. For eg, a hand of 7 and five gives a tally of two (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card can be dealt depending on the foll. standards:

- If the player or banker has a value of eight or nine, both bettors stand.

- If the bettor has 5 or lower, he/she hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the bettor hits, a chart shall be used to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores is the winner. Successful wagers on the banker pay at nineteen to twenty (even money minus a 5% commission. Commission is tracked and moved out when you leave the table so be sure to have cash left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winning bets for tie generally pays out at eight to one and occasionally nine to 1. (This is a bad wager as ties will occur lower than 1 every ten hands. Definitely don’t try wagering on a tie. Still, odds are actually better – 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

When played accurately, baccarat provides generally good odds, apart from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with every games, Baccarat has some established myths. 1 of which is close to a misconception of roulette. The past is surely not a predictor of future happenings. Tracking of prior outcomes on a chart is simply a total waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and almost certainly most successful method is the 1-three-2-6 scheme. This plan is used to amplify earnings and minimizing risk.

start by gambling one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, take away four so you have 2 on the 3rd gamble. If you win the 3rd bet, add 2 to the four on the table for a value of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you lose on the initial wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the second causes a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. Therefore you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
