Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards than are of a value less than 10 are said to be worth their printed value and on the other hand 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they simply act as the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards shall then be given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for any hand is the grand total of the two cards, but the initial digit is removed. For eg, a hand of 7 … 5 will have a tally of two (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card might be given out depending on the following guidelines:

- If the player or banker has a value of eight or nine, each gamblers stand.

- If the bettor has 5 or less, he/she hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the bettor hits, a chart will be used in order to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores is the winner. Victorious stakes on the banker pay out 19 to 20 (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure you have money remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winner bets for tie typically pay 8 to one and on occasion nine to one. (This is a terrible gamble as ties happen lower than one every 10 hands. Run away from betting on a tie. Nonetheless odds are generously better – nine to 1 versus 8 to 1)

When played correctly, baccarat offers relatively decent odds, aside from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some common myths. One of which is very similar to a roulette myth. The past is never actually an actual indicator of future results. Tracking of previous conclusions on a chart is a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most established and probably most successful technique is the 1-three-two-six scheme. This technique is employed to accentuate earnings and lowering risk.

Begin by betting 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, clear away four so you have 2 on the 3rd bet. If you win the third bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum of six on the fourth bet.

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