## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards with less than a value of ten are of their printed value while 10, 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 only symbolize the two hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the total of the two cards, but the first digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of 7 and 5 results in a total score of two (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A third card might be given depending on the following rules:

- If the gambler or banker has a tally of 8 or 9, the two gamblers stand.

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

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

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Victorious bets on the banker pay out nineteen to twenty (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is followed closely and moved out when you leave the table so make sure that you have money left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie typically pay eight to 1 and sometimes nine to one. (This is a terrible gamble as ties happen less than one every 10 hands. be cautious of betting on a tie. Even so odds are actually better – 9 to one vs. 8 to one)

When done correctly, baccarat offers generally decent odds, apart from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with most games, Baccarat has some established myths. 1 of which is similar to a roulette myth. The past is in no way an indicator of future outcomes. Staying abreast of historic results on a chart is undoubtedly a total waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and possibly most successful tactic is the 1-3-2-6 method. This scheme is deployed to pump up wins and reducing risk.

Begin by betting 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, subtract 4 so you have two on the 3rd bet. If you win the third gamble, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a total of six on the fourth bet.

If you lose on the first wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd will create a loss of two. 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 4th mean you break even. Winning at all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. 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.
