## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards under 10 are give a value of their printed value while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they only represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards will then be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand shall be the sum of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is discarded. For example, a hand of seven … 5 results in a tally of 2 (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be given out depending on the foll. codes:

- If the player or banker has a value of eight or 9, both gamblers stand.

- If the gambler 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 is used in order to ascertain 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 20 (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is followed closely and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure to have dollars remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie as a rule pays out at 8 to one and on occasion 9 to 1. (This is not a good gamble as ties happen lower than one every ten hands. be cautious of wagering on a tie. Regardless odds are greatly better – 9 to one vs. 8 to one)

When done properly, baccarat presents fairly decent odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some common myths. 1 of which is similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way an actual indicator of future events. Monitoring of previous conclusions on a chart is simply a total waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and probably most successful technique is the one-three-2-6 concept. This method is employed to amplify successes and limiting risk.

Begin by betting one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, remove 4 so you have 2 on the third wager. If you win the third gamble, add 2 to the four on the table for a value of 6 on the fourth bet.

If you don’t win on the initial wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the second brings about a loss of two. Wins on the first two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means that you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
