Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards of a value less than 10 are said to be worth face value while 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they simply appear as the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards shall then be given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for any hand will be the sum total of the 2 cards, but the first digit is dumped. For example, a hand of 7 … five has a value of two (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A third card can be dealt depending on the foll. regulations:

- If the gambler or banker has a total score of 8 or nine, both players stand.

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

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

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores is the winner. Victorious stakes on the banker pay out 19 to 20 (even money less a five percent commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so make sure you have dollars still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie normally pays 8 to 1 and sometimes 9 to one. (This is not a good gamble as ties occur less than one every 10 hands. Definitely don’t try wagering on a tie. However odds are radically better – 9 to 1 versus 8 to 1)

When done correctly, baccarat provides relatively good odds, apart from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some established false impressions. One of which is close to a misconception of roulette. The past is not a predictor of future actions. Tracking of historic outcomes on a chart is definitely a waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and possibly most successful tactic is the one-3-two-six concept. This plan is used to accentuate profits and lowering risk.

commence by wagering one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, clear away 4 so you have two on the 3rd wager. If you win the 3rd bet, add two to the 4 on the table for a sum of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you lose on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second creates a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Coming away with a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. Thus that you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
