Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards under 10 are said to be worth their printed value whereas 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they strictly portray the 2 hands to be given out).

2 hands of two cards will now be played to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand shall be the total of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is discarded. For example, a hand of seven as well as 5 results in a total score of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

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

- If the gambler or banker has a score of 8 or nine, each gamblers stand.

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the player hits, a chart shall be used to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores is the winner. Successful wagers on the banker pay nineteen to twenty (even money less a 5% commission. Commission is followed closely and cleared out when you leave the table so ensure you have funds remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winner bets for tie generally pays 8 to one and on occasion nine to one. (This is a terrible gamble as ties occur lower than 1 every ten hands. Avoid putting money on a tie. Nevertheless odds are supremely better – nine to one vs. eight to one)

When done smartly, baccarat presents pretty decent odds, away from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some well-known myths. One of which is close to a roulette myth. The past is in no way an indicator of future outcomes. Keeping track of old outcomes on a chart is a waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most common and possibly most successful tactic is the 1-3-2-six technique. This scheme is employed to pump up earnings and reducing risk.

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

If you don’t win on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you break even. Coming away with a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
