Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Procedures

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

2 hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for every hand is the total of the two cards, but the first digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of 7 and five results in a value of 2 (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A third card may be given out depending on the following protocols:

- If the player or banker has a tally of eight or 9, then both players stand.

- If the player has 5 or lower, he/she hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the bettor hits, a chart might be used in order to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Successful wagers on the banker pay out 19 to 20 (even odds less a five % commission. Commission is followed closely and cleared out when you leave the table so ensure you have funds still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie as a rule pays out at 8 to 1 but on occasion 9 to one. (This is an awful gamble as ties will occur less than 1 every ten hands. Stay away from placing bets on a tie. Nevertheless odds are greatly better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to one)

When played correctly, baccarat presents relatively decent odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some common myths. 1 of which is similar to a roulette myth. The past is in no way a predictor of future events. Monitoring of historic results on a chart is undoubtedly a waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most popular and almost certainly most successful method is the 1-3-two-six scheme. This schema is employed to build up winnings and controlling risk.

start by wagering one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, take away 4 so you have two on the third wager. If you win the third bet, add two to the 4 on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the initial wager, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the second will create a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. Winning all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. In other words you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
