## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued less than 10 are valued at their printed number whereas ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they purely represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

2 hands of 2 cards shall then be played to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for each hand shall be the sum of the two cards, but the initial digit is removed. For example, a hand of seven and 5 results in a total of 2 (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card could be given depending on the following codes:

- If the bettor or banker has a total score of 8 or 9, the two gamblers stand.

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

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the bettor hits, a chart will be used in order to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores is the winner. Successful stakes on the banker payout 19 to twenty (even odds less a 5% commission. Commission is monitored and paid out when you leave the table so make sure you have money left before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie normally pay 8 to 1 but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a bad gamble as ties will occur lower than one every 10 hands. Run away from putting money on a tie. Regardless odds are significantlly better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to one)

When played correctly, baccarat offers pretty good odds, aside from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some well-known myths. 1 of which is similar to a roulette myth. The past is never actually an indicator of future results. Staying abreast of prior conclusions on a chart is for sure a complete waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most popular and probably most successful strategy is the 1-three-2-six technique. This tactic is employed to amplify wins and minimizing risk.

Begin by gambling one 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, clear away 4 so you have two on the 3rd wager. If you win the third wager, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the fourth bet.

If you lose on the first wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed by loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of two. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. A win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. This means that you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
