Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued less than ten are give a value of their printed number while 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 individuals; they strictly portray the two hands to be dealt).

2 hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for any hand will be the sum of the two cards, but the first digit is dropped. For e.g., a hand of 7 and 5 will have a total score of 2 (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card could be dealt depending on the following regulations:

- If the player or banker has a value of 8 or 9, the two players stand.

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Successful bets on the banker pay at 19 to twenty (even money minus a five percent commission. Commission is followed closely and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure you have $$$$$ left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winning bets for tie as a rule pay 8 to one but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is an awful wager as ties will occur less than one every ten hands. Avoid betting on a tie. However odds are richly better – nine to 1 versus eight to 1)

Played accurately, baccarat provides generally good odds, away from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some established misunderstandings. One of which is quite similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way an actual indicator of future happenings. Keeping track of past conclusions on a chart is simply a waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and possibly most successful technique is the one-three-2-six concept. This process is employed to accentuate payouts and lowering risk.

start by wagering one unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, take away four so you have two on the 3rd bet. If you win the third gamble, add two to the 4 on the table for a sum of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you don’t win on the first bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second causes a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. Therefore you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
