Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards that are valued less than ten are of their printed value while ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual players; they merely represent the 2 hands to be played).

2 hands of two cards will now be dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for any hand is the sum total of the two cards, but the first digit is removed. For example, a hand of seven … five produces a value of 2 (sevenplus5=12; drop the ‘1′).

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

- If the gambler or banker has a total of eight or 9, then both players stand.

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

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

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores wins. Winning bets on the banker pay at nineteen to twenty (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and paid out when you leave the table so make sure you have cash remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie normally pays 8 to one but on occasion nine to 1. (This is an awful gamble as ties will occur less than 1 every 10 hands. Run away from placing bets on a tie. Nevertheless odds are positively better – 9 to one vs. eight to 1)

Played properly, baccarat provides relatively good odds, away from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with every games, Baccarat has some common misunderstandings. 1 of which is close to a misconception of roulette. The past is never actually a predictor of future events. Staying abreast of past conclusions on a chart is undoubtedly a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most popular and probably most successful strategy is the one-three-two-6 technique. This plan is deployed to accentuate winnings and limiting risk.

start by wagering 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 six on the table, clear away four so you have two on the 3rd bet. If you win the third bet, add two to the four on the table for a sum total of 6 on the fourth gamble.

If you lose on the initial wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of two. Wins on the first two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
