Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards which are valued less than 10 are valued at their printed value while at the same time ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they only symbolize the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for every hand shall be the grand total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is dropped. For example, a hand of 7 as well as five produces a score of two (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card can be played depending on the foll. regulations:

- If the gambler or banker has a tally of 8 or 9, the two players stand.

- If the gambler has five or less, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores wins. Successful stakes on the banker pay at 19 to 20 (even odds less a 5 percent commission. Commission is monitored and moved out when you leave the table so be sure to have funds left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie as a rule pay eight to one and occasionally 9 to one. (This is a bad wager as ties occur less than one every 10 hands. be cautious of placing bets on a tie. Still, odds are certainly better – 9 to one vs. 8 to 1)

Played correctly, baccarat provides generally good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with every games, Baccarat has some well-known misunderstandings. One of which is very similar to a roulette myth. The past is not an indicator of future results. Keeping track of last conclusions on a chart is simply a waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and almost certainly most successful tactic is the one-3-two-6 technique. This process is used to pump up wins and controlling risk.

Begin by betting 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 6 on the table, subtract 4 so you have 2 on the third gamble. If you win the third wager, add 2 to the four on the table for a value of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the first bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the second brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words that you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
