## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards of a value less than 10 are said to be at their printed number while ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual players; they merely depict the two hands to be given out).

2 hands of 2 cards shall then be given out to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for any hand shall be the sum total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is dropped. For example, a hand of seven as well as five produces a tally of 2 (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card might be given out depending on the foll. codes:

- If the player or banker has a tally of eight or 9, then both players stand.

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

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the player hits, a chart might be used in order to ascertain if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores will be the winner. Victorious bets on the banker pay out nineteen to twenty (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so ensure that you have cash left before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winner bets for tie by and large pays eight to 1 but on occasion nine to 1. (This is an awful bet as ties will happen less than 1 every 10 hands. Avoid wagering on a tie. However odds are especially better – 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

Played correctly, baccarat offers relatively good odds, away from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some common misunderstandings. 1 of which is quite similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is surely not a predictor of future outcomes. Tracking of old results on a chart is a total waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most popular and probably most successful tactic is the 1-three-two-6 method. This method is deployed to maximize payout and minimizing risk.

start by wagering one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, remove 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd gamble. If you win the third wager, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a grand total of six on the fourth bet.

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the second will create 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 three with a loss on the fourth mean you break even. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
