## Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards than are of a value less than 10 are counted at their printed value while at the same time 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 individuals; they strictly appear as the two hands to be given out).

2 hands of two cards will then be given out to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for any hand will be the sum total of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is discarded. For e.g., a hand of seven as well as five results in a total of 2 (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card can be given depending on the foll. protocols:

- If the bettor or banker has a total score of 8 or 9, the two gamblers stand.

- If the bettor has 5 or less, he hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the player hits, a chart will be used to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores wins. Successful stakes on the banker pay at 19 to 20 (even money minus a five percent commission. Commission is tracked and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have cash left before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winner bets for tie generally pays 8 to 1 but sometimes 9 to one. (This is a crazy gamble as ties happen less than 1 every 10 hands. be cautious of putting money on a tie. Regardless odds are significantlly better – nine to one versus eight to 1)

When done smartly, baccarat offers pretty decent odds, away from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some common misunderstandings. One of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is surely not an indicator of future outcomes. Monitoring of historic results 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 popular and probably most successful tactic is the one-three-2-6 scheme. This schema is used to boost successes and limiting risk.

Begin by gambling one unit. If you win, add one 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, take away 4 so you have two on the third wager. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a sum of 6 on the fourth bet.

If you lose on the initial wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the second causes a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Winning at all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. Thus you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
