## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards that are valued under 10 are said to be worth their printed number while at the same time ten, 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 individuals; they just appear as the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for any hand will be the grand total of the two cards, but the first digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of seven … 5 results in a total score of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card could be dealt depending on the foll. guidelines:

- If the player or banker has a score of 8 or 9, then both bettors stand.

- If the player has 5 or lower, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even money less a 5% commission. Commission is followed closely and cleared out when you leave the table so ensure you have dollars still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie normally pays out at eight to 1 and occasionally nine to 1. (This is a bad bet as ties will happen lower than one every 10 hands. be wary of wagering on a tie. Nevertheless odds are generously better – 9 to one versus 8 to one)

When done accurately, baccarat provides pretty good odds, away from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with many games, Baccarat has some established false impressions. One of which is close to a misconception of roulette. The past is never actually a predictor of future actions. Keeping track of past outcomes on a chart is undoubtedly 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 common and probably most successful tactic is the 1-3-two-6 method. This scheme is employed to build up earnings and cutting back risk.

start by wagering 1 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 6 on the table, subtract four so you have two on the 3rd gamble. If you win the third wager, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum total of 6 on the fourth wager.

If you lose on the initial bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the second causes a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you break even. Winning all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. Thus that you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
