Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards with less than a value of ten are counted at face 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 players; they purely act as the 2 hands to be played).

2 hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The value for any hand will be the grand total of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of 7 and 5 results in a tally of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be played depending on the foll. protocols:

- If the player or banker has a total of 8 or nine, both bettors stand.

- If the player has 5 or less, he hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker payout 19 to twenty (even odds minus a five % commission. Commission is followed closely and moved out when you leave the table so make sure that you have $$$$$ remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie normally pays out at eight to 1 and sometimes nine to 1. (This is a crazy bet as ties happen lower than one every ten hands. Definitely don’t try laying money on a tie. Even so odds are significantlly better – 9 to one vs. eight to one)

When played accurately, baccarat presents fairly decent odds, aside from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with many games, Baccarat has some well-known false impressions. 1 of which is very similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way a predictor of future events. Monitoring of previous conclusions on a chart is a waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and feasibly most successful strategy is the one-three-2-6 technique. This process is employed to accentuate earnings and minimizing risk.

Begin by betting 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two 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 two on the third bet. If you win the third gamble, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum of six on the 4th gamble.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd will create a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you break even. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
