## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards of a value less than 10 are said to be at their printed number and on the other hand ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual gamblers; they only symbolize the 2 hands to be played).

2 hands of two cards will now be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand shall be the sum of the two cards, but the first digit is discarded. For e.g., a hand of seven and 5 will have a total of 2 (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card may be played depending on the following rules:

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

- If the bettor has 5 or less, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores is the winner. Winning stakes on the banker pay at 19 to 20 (even money less a 5% commission. Commission is tracked and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure to have $$$$$ left before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie commonly pays eight to one and occasionally 9 to 1. (This is not a good wager as ties will happen less than 1 every ten hands. Run away from betting on a tie. Nevertheless odds are vastly better – nine to 1 vs. eight to 1)

Played effectively, baccarat provides relatively good odds, away from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some common myths. One of which is very similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is not a predictor of future happenings. Keeping track of prior outcomes on a chart is simply a complete waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and feasibly most successful technique is the 1-3-2-six scheme. This tactic is used to magnify payout and controlling risk.

Begin by betting 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, take 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 wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second causes a loss of two. 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 break even. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. In other words that you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
