Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are of a value less than 10 are said to be worth face value whereas ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual individuals; they just appear as the two hands to be played).

Two hands of two cards shall then be given out to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The value for every hand will be the sum of the two cards, but the very first digit is dumped. For e.g., a hand of 7 … five will have a total of 2 (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card may be played depending on the foll. regulations:

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

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

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

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores is the winner. Winning wagers on the banker payout nineteen to twenty (even money minus a five % commission. Commission is tracked and moved out when you leave the table so ensure you have dollars still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie as a rule pay 8 to one but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is an awful wager as ties occur less than one every ten hands. Run away from putting money on a tie. Regardless odds are significantly better – 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

When played smartly, baccarat provides relatively decent odds, away from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some established misunderstandings. One of which is quite similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way an actual indicator of future outcomes. Staying abreast of past conclusions on a chart is simply a total waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most established and feasibly most successful tactic is the one-three-2-six technique. This technique is deployed to build up wins and limiting risk.

Begin by betting 1 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, clear away 4 so you have 2 on the third gamble. If you win the third wager, add two to the 4 on the table for a sum of six on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. In other words that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
