Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are valued under 10 are counted at face value whereas 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 just depict the 2 hands to be played).

2 hands of two cards will now be given out to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for each hand shall be the sum of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is removed. For example, a hand of 7 as well as 5 has a tally of 2 (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card might be dealt depending on the following protocols:

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

- If the player has 5 or less, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the player hits, a chart shall be used in order to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores is the winner. Winning bets on the banker pay nineteen to 20 (even odds less a 5 percent commission. Commission is monitored and paid out when you leave the table so ensure that you have cash left before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie generally pays out at eight to 1 and sometimes 9 to 1. (This is an awful gamble as ties will happen less than 1 every 10 hands. Stay away from wagering on a tie. Still, odds are thoroughly better – 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

Played accurately, baccarat presents pretty good odds, away from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some well-known false impressions. One of which is similar to a roulette myth. The past is in no way a predictor of future outcomes. Tracking of last results on a chart is definitely a complete waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and possibly most successful tactic is the one-3-2-six technique. This process is used to magnify earnings and cutting back risk.

Begin by gambling 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, take away 4 so you have two on the 3rd gamble. If you win the third bet, add 2 to the four on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th bet.

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 1st 2 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 breakeven. Getting a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. Thus you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
