Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards which are valued less than ten are give a value of their printed number while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they strictly represent the two hands to be given out).

2 hands of 2 cards shall then be dealt to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The value for every hand shall be the sum of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is removed. For eg, a hand of 7 and five will have a score of two (7plus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A third card might be given depending on the following codes:

- If the player or banker has a score of eight or 9, each players stand.

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to ascertain if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores wins. Winning bets on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even odds minus a five % commission. Commission is followed closely and paid out when you leave the table so be sure to have money left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie generally pays 8 to 1 but on occasion nine to 1. (This is a terrible bet as ties occur less than one every 10 hands. abstain from laying money on a tie. Nonetheless odds are remarkably better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to 1)

When played correctly, baccarat offers relatively good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games, Baccarat has some common false impressions. One of which is close to a roulette myth. The past is never actually a predictor of future results. Staying abreast of prior results on a chart is a waste of paper as well as an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and feasibly most successful tactic is the one-3-two-6 scheme. This technique is employed to pump up winnings and limiting risk.

commence by gambling one 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, subtract four so you have 2 on the third wager. If you win the 3rd wager, add two to the 4 on the table for a value of six on the 4th wager.

If you lose on the initial wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd causes a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 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. Coming away with a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. Therefore you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
