## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued less than ten are valued at face value and on the other hand 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they merely represent the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards shall then be dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand will be the sum of the two cards, but the first digit is removed. For eg, a hand of seven and 5 has a value of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card can be played depending on the following regulations:

- If the gambler or banker has a value of eight or nine, both gamblers stand.

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the bettor hits, a chart is used to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores will be the winner. Successful wagers on the banker pay nineteen to 20 (even money less a five % commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so be sure to have funds left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winning bets for tie commonly pays out at 8 to 1 and occasionally 9 to one. (This is not a good bet as ties happen lower than one every 10 hands. Run away from wagering on a tie. Regardless odds are considerably better – nine to one versus eight to 1)

When played accurately, baccarat provides fairly good odds, apart from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some established misconceptions. One of which is similar to a roulette myth. The past is never actually an indicator of future happenings. Staying abreast of last outcomes on a chart is undoubtedly a total waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most established and probably most successful method is the one-three-2-6 technique. This technique is deployed to amplify successes and minimizing risk.

commence by betting 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, remove 4 so you have two on the 3rd gamble. If you win the 3rd gamble, add 2 to the four on the table for a value of six on the 4th wager.

If you lose on the first wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 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 breakeven. A win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
