Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards below a value of ten are valued at face value while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual individuals; they strictly symbolize the two hands to be played).

2 hands of 2 cards will then be given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The value for every hand is the total of the two cards, but the first digit is discarded. For e.g., a hand of 7 … 5 gives a score of 2 (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card may be dealt depending on the following rules:

- If the gambler or banker has a value of eight or nine, the two bettors stand.

- If the bettor has five or less, he hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the player hits, a chart might be used to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores is the winner. Successful wagers on the banker pay at nineteen to twenty (even odds less a 5% commission. Commission is monitored and moved out when you leave the table so make sure you have cash remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie normally pays out at eight to one but occasionally 9 to one. (This is a crazy bet as ties happen lower than one every ten hands. Definitely don’t try putting money on a tie. Nonetheless odds are remarkably better – 9 to 1 versus 8 to 1)

When done accurately, baccarat offers generally decent odds, aside from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some well-known myths. One of which is quite similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is never actually a predictor of future events. Staying abreast of previous results on a chart is a complete waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and probably most successful tactic is the 1-3-2-six scheme. This scheme is deployed to accentuate payout and limiting risk.

start by gambling one 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 6 on the table, remove 4 so you have two on the 3rd bet. If you win the 3rd gamble, add 2 to the four on the table for a grand total of six on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the 2nd will create a loss of two. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you break even. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
