Rules of Baccarat

[ English ]

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards which are of a value less than 10 are said to be worth their printed number while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they just symbolize the two hands to be given out).

2 hands of 2 cards are then played to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The value for every hand will be the sum of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is dumped. For eg, a hand of seven … 5 gives a total of two (sevenplus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be given out depending on the foll. regulations:

- If the bettor or banker has a total of eight or 9, the two gamblers stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or less, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the gambler hits, a chart is used in order to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Winning wagers on the banker pay at nineteen to twenty (even odds minus a five % commission. Commission is kept track of and paid out when you leave the table so make sure you have money remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie customarily pays out at eight to one and sometimes nine to one. (This is not a good wager as ties happen less than 1 every ten hands. Definitely don’t try wagering on a tie. Still, odds are certainly better – 9 to one vs. eight to one)

When played smartly, baccarat provides pretty decent odds, apart from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some established myths. One of which is close to a misconception of roulette. The past is not a predictor of future outcomes. Staying abreast of historic results on a chart is undoubtedly a complete waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and feasibly most successful tactic is the one-three-two-6 scheme. This scheme is deployed to build up winnings and cutting back risk.

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

If you lose on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed by loss on the 2nd will create 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 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. Therefore you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
