Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards with less than a value of ten are counted at their printed value while 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they strictly act as the 2 hands to be given out).

2 hands of 2 cards shall then be given out to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for each hand shall be the sum total of the two cards, but the very first digit is removed. For eg, a hand of 7 … 5 has a total of two (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card can be played depending on the following standards:

- If the player or banker has a total of 8 or nine, each bettors stand.

- If the bettor has 5 or lower, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores wins. Winning bets on the banker pay 19 to 20 (even odds minus a 5 percent commission. Commission is followed closely and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure to have cash remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie usually pays out at eight to 1 but sometimes nine to one. (This is a bad wager as ties will happen lower than 1 every ten hands. Definitely don’t try wagering on a tie. Regardless odds are appreciably better – nine to 1 vs. 8 to one)

When played effectively, baccarat provides fairly decent odds, away from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some common myths. One of which is similar to a roulette misconception. The past is surely not an actual indicator of future events. Keeping track of previous outcomes on a chart is for sure a complete waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and possibly most successful strategy is the 1-3-2-6 method. This technique is used to accentuate successes and reducing risk.

commence by wagering 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, subtract 4 so you have two on the third bet. If you win the 3rd bet, add two to the 4 on the table for a total of six on the 4th 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 causes a loss of two. Wins on the first two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. In other words that you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
