## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards with less than a value of ten are give a value of their printed number while ten, 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 individuals; they purely portray the 2 hands to be dealt).

2 hands of two cards will now be given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for every hand is the sum of the two cards, but the initial digit is removed. For example, a hand of seven as well as five has a total of two (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

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

- If the gambler or banker has a value of eight or nine, both players stand.

- If the bettor has five or lower, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart might be used to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the two scores wins. Winning stakes on the banker payout nineteen to 20 (even money less a five percent commission. Commission is kept track of and paid out when you leave the table so ensure you have money left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie commonly pay eight to one and occasionally 9 to one. (This is an awful wager as ties will occur less than one every ten hands. Avoid laying money on a tie. Even so odds are far better – nine to 1 versus 8 to one)

When done accurately, baccarat provides pretty good odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. 1 of which is close to a roulette myth. The past is not an actual indicator of future happenings. Keeping track 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 for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and possibly most successful tactic is the 1-3-two-six technique. This method is used to maximize winnings and cutting back risk.

commence 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 6 on the table, clear away four so you have 2 on the third wager. If you win the 3rd bet, add two to the four on the table for a sum of six on the fourth wager.

If you don’t win on the first bet, you take a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the 2nd will create a loss of two. Wins on the first two 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. Coming away with 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.
