Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards below a value of 10 are counted at their printed value meanwhile ten, 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 gamblers; they only represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards will then be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for any hand shall be the sum of the two cards, but the very first digit is removed. For e.g., a hand of seven and five will have a total of two (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card can be dealt depending on the foll. rules:

- If the gambler or banker has a total of eight or nine, each bettors stand.

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the player hits, a chart shall be used to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores will be the winner. Winning bets on the banker payout 19 to twenty (even money minus a five % commission. Commission is monitored and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have $$$$$ remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie as a rule pay out eight to 1 and sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as ties will occur less than one every ten hands. Run away from betting on a tie. Nevertheless odds are appreciably better – nine to one versus 8 to one)

Played smartly, baccarat offers relatively decent odds, apart from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. 1 of which is quite similar to a roulette myth. The past is in no way an indicator of future events. Staying abreast of historic conclusions on a chart is a total waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and almost certainly most successful strategy is the one-3-two-six concept. This technique is employed to build up successes and reducing risk.

start by betting 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, clear away 4 so you have two on the third bet. If you win the third wager, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a total of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Arriving at a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. In other words that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
