Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are valued under 10 are counted at face value meanwhile 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual players; they just symbolize the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand shall be the grand total of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For e.g., a hand of seven and five has a score of 2 (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card could be dealt depending on the following rules:

- If the gambler or banker has a tally of eight or 9, both bettors stand.

- If the gambler has five or less, he hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the player hits, a chart will be used to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores is the winner. Victorious stakes on the banker pay out nineteen to twenty (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure that you have cash left before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie normally pay eight to one and sometimes 9 to one. (This is an awful gamble as ties happen less than 1 every ten hands. Run away from putting money on a tie. Regardless odds are generously better – 9 to 1 versus 8 to one)

Played correctly, baccarat offers fairly good odds, apart from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some well-known myths. 1 of which is quite similar to a roulette myth. The past is in no way an indicator of future happenings. Staying abreast of previous outcomes on a chart is a complete waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most popular and possibly most successful tactic is the 1-3-2-six technique. This scheme is used to boost payout and lowering risk.

Begin by wagering one unit. If you win, add one 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, subtract four so you have two on the 3rd wager. If you win the 3rd gamble, add two to the four on the table for a sum total of six on the fourth gamble.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the second brings about a loss of two. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Arriving at a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. Thus that you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
