## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards below a value of ten are worth their printed number whereas 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 players; they strictly symbolize the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of 2 cards will then be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for any hand shall be the grand total of the two cards, but the very first digit is dropped. For e.g., a hand of seven … five results in a value of 2 (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A third card might be given out depending on the following guidelines:

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

- If the gambler has five or lower, he hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the player hits, a chart might be used in order to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores is the winner. Successful bets on the banker pay out 19 to twenty (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and paid out when you leave the table so ensure that you have money still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winner bets for tie generally pay out 8 to one but occasionally 9 to one. (This is a terrible wager as ties will occur lower than 1 every ten hands. Stay away from wagering on a tie. Still, odds are far better – nine to one versus eight to 1)

When played accurately, baccarat offers fairly good odds, apart from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some common myths. 1 of which is close to a misconception of roulette. The past is never actually an actual indicator of future actions. Staying abreast of previous results on a chart is simply 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 possibly most successful method is the 1-3-2-six scheme. This plan is employed to increase winnings and minimizing risk.

start by gambling 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 six on the table, remove 4 so you have two on the 3rd gamble. If you win the 3rd gamble, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you lose on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you break even. A win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
