Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Standards

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

2 hands of two cards will now be given out to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for any hand shall be the sum of the two cards, but the first digit is dropped. For example, a hand of seven … 5 gives a total of 2 (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

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

- If the bettor or banker has a score of eight or nine, each players stand.

- If the bettor has five or lower, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the player hits, a chart shall be used to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores is the winner. Winning wagers on the banker payout nineteen to twenty (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so ensure you have money still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winner bets for tie generally pay out eight to one and on occasion nine to 1. (This is an awful bet as ties happen less than one every 10 hands. Stay away from laying money on a tie. However odds are remarkably better – nine to 1 vs. 8 to one)

When done smartly, baccarat provides fairly good odds, aside from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some well-known myths. 1 of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is surely not an indicator of future happenings. Monitoring of previous results on a chart is undoubtedly a waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and possibly most successful method is the 1-3-two-6 method. This schema is used to accentuate profits and lowering risk.

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

If you don’t win on the first bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second creates a loss of two. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
