## Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards with less than a value of 10 are said to be worth their printed number meanwhile 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they purely depict the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of two cards shall then be given out to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for every hand is the total of the 2 cards, but the first digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of seven … 5 gives a total score of two (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

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

- If the bettor or banker has a score of 8 or nine, both bettors stand.

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

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

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Successful bets on the banker pay nineteen to twenty (even odds less a 5 percent commission. Commission is monitored and paid out when you leave the table so make sure you have dollars left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winning bets for tie generally pay 8 to 1 and on occasion nine to 1. (This is a bad bet as ties occur less than one every ten hands. Run away from betting on a tie. Nonetheless odds are appreciably better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to one)

Played accurately, baccarat presents relatively good odds, aside from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some well-known misunderstandings. 1 of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way an actual indicator of future events. Staying abreast of previous conclusions on a chart is definitely a total waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most common and probably most successful tactic is the one-three-2-six concept. This method is employed to build up wins and limiting risk.

Begin by betting 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, subtract 4 so you have two on the third bet. If you win the 3rd wager, add two to the four on the table for a value of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you lose on the initial wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of two. 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 fourth mean you come out even. Winning all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. In other words that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
