Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are of a value less than ten are valued at their printed value whereas ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual players; they just appear as the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of two cards will now be played to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The value for every hand is the sum total of the two cards, but the very first digit is dumped. For example, a hand of 7 and five produces a total score of 2 (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card could be given depending on the foll. standards:

- If the player or banker has a total of eight or nine, each players stand.

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores is the winner. Victorious bets on the banker pay out 19 to twenty (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is monitored and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have funds remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie as a rule pays 8 to 1 but sometimes 9 to one. (This is a terrible wager as ties will happen lower than 1 every 10 hands. be wary of laying money on a tie. Still, odds are appreciably better – 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

Played properly, baccarat presents relatively decent odds, apart from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some established misunderstandings. One of which is very similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way a predictor of future actions. Monitoring of historic results on a chart is simply a complete waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most established and feasibly most successful tactic is the 1-three-two-six concept. This schema is employed to maximize winnings and limiting risk.

start by gambling 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, take away 4 so you have two on the third wager. If you win the third gamble, add 2 to the four on the table for a sum of 6 on the fourth bet.

If you lose on the first bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the second will create a loss of two. Wins on the first 2 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 come out even. Winning at all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. In other words you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
