Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards below a value of 10 are counted at their printed number and on the other hand ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual individuals; they only act as the two hands to be given out).

2 hands of two cards shall then be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand shall be the grand total of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is dropped. For e.g., a hand of 7 as well as 5 produces a total of 2 (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card can be played depending on the following rules:

- If the bettor or banker has a tally of eight or nine, both gamblers stand.

- If the player has five or lower, he hits. bettors stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the two scores will be the winner. Winning bets on the banker payout nineteen to 20 (even odds less a five percent commission. Commission is followed closely and paid out when you leave the table so ensure you have dollars remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie as a rule pays out at 8 to one and occasionally nine to one. (This is an awful gamble as ties will happen lower than 1 every 10 hands. Avoid laying money on a tie. However odds are richly better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to 1)

Played correctly, baccarat offers relatively good odds, away from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some established false impressions. 1 of which is quite similar to a roulette misconception. The past is not an indicator of future happenings. Tracking of previous results on a chart is a total waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and almost certainly most successful strategy is the one-three-two-6 concept. This scheme is used to amplify winnings and cutting back risk.

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

If you lose on the first bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second brings about a loss of two. 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. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
