## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards that are valued under ten are give a value of their printed value meanwhile 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they strictly symbolize the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of 2 cards shall then be played to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for each hand will be the sum total of the two cards, but the very first digit is removed. For e.g., a hand of 7 as well as 5 produces a total of 2 (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

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

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

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores is the winner. Successful stakes on the banker payout 19 to twenty (even money minus a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure that you have $$$$$ remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie usually pays 8 to one and sometimes 9 to one. (This is a terrible wager as ties occur lower than 1 every 10 hands. Avoid betting on a tie. Still, odds are especially better – nine to one vs. eight to 1)

Played properly, baccarat offers pretty decent odds, away from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. One of which is similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way an indicator of future actions. Monitoring of past outcomes on a chart is undoubtedly a complete waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and probably most successful strategy is the one-three-2-six scheme. This process is deployed to increase successes and reducing risk.

Begin by betting 1 unit. If you win, add one 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 2 on the 3rd wager. If you win the 3rd gamble, add two to the 4 on the table for a total of six on the 4th wager.

If you lose on the initial wager, you take a loss of one. 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 third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you break even. Getting a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. In other words that you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
