Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards with less than a value of 10 are counted at their printed value while ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual individuals; they merely portray the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given out to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for every hand is the sum of the two cards, but the initial digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of 7 and 5 will have a score of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A third card could be given depending on the foll. rules:

- If the player or banker has a value of eight or nine, the two bettors stand.

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the gambler hits, a chart is used in order to ascertain if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores will be the winner. Successful stakes on the banker pay 19 to 20 (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have $$$$$ still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winner bets for tie normally pays out at eight to one and occasionally nine to 1. (This is a crazy bet as ties will occur lower than 1 every 10 hands. Avoid putting money on a tie. Nonetheless odds are especially better – 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

When played accurately, baccarat offers relatively good odds, away from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with most games, Baccarat has some common misconceptions. One of which is similar to a roulette myth. The past is surely not a predictor of future outcomes. Tracking of historic conclusions on a chart is simply a waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and almost certainly most successful method is the 1-three-two-6 technique. This scheme is deployed to build up payouts and reducing risk.

commence by gambling 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two 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 third wager. If you win the 3rd bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a grand total of six on the 4th wager.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd causes a loss of two. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. In other words you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
