Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards which are valued under 10 are counted at their printed value whereas 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual players; they strictly act as the two hands to be given out).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for any hand shall be the sum total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is dumped. For e.g., a hand of seven … 5 results in a total score of 2 (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card could be dealt depending on the foll. guidelines:

- If the gambler or banker has a value of 8 or nine, both gamblers stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart is used in order to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores is the winner. Victorious stakes on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even odds minus a 5 percent commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so make sure that you have money still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie generally pay eight to 1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is a crazy gamble as ties occur lower than one every 10 hands. Stay away from wagering on a tie. Regardless odds are noticeably better – nine to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

When done properly, baccarat provides generally good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some established myths. One of which is close to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way an indicator of future results. Monitoring of last outcomes on a chart is definitely a complete waste of paper as well as an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most common and probably most successful method is the one-three-two-six scheme. This scheme is deployed to maximize wins and minimizing risk.

commence by gambling one unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, clear away 4 so you have 2 on the third wager. If you win the third wager, add two to the 4 on the table for a grand total of six on the fourth gamble.

If you lose on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the second will create a loss of two. Wins on the first two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Coming away with a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
