Rules of Baccarat

[ English ]

Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards which are of a value less than ten are said to be at face value whereas 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they merely depict the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards will now be dealt to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The value for any hand will be the sum of the 2 cards, but the first digit is removed. For eg, a hand of 7 as well as five results in a score of 2 (sevenplus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A third card could be dealt depending on the following standards:

- If the bettor or banker has a score of 8 or 9, each bettors stand.

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or lower. If the player hits, a chart will be used in order to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores wins. Successful wagers on the banker pay at nineteen to twenty (even money minus a 5% commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure to have funds left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winner bets for tie generally pays out at 8 to one and on occasion 9 to 1. (This is an awful wager as ties happen less than one every 10 hands. Definitely don’t try laying money on a tie. However odds are somewhat better – nine to 1 vs. eight to 1)

When done smartly, baccarat presents pretty decent odds, aside from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some common misconceptions. One of which is quite similar to a roulette myth. The past is never actually a predictor of future happenings. Monitoring of previous results on a chart is definitely a complete waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and almost certainly most successful method is the one-three-two-six scheme. This tactic is deployed to increase successes and reducing risk.

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

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 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 break even. Coming out on top 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.
