Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards valued less than 10 are worth their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they strictly represent the two hands to be given out).

2 hands of two cards will then be given out to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for any hand is the sum total of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is removed. For example, a hand of seven as well as 5 produces a total score of 2 (7plus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A third card may be dealt depending on the following regulations:

- If the player or banker has a value of eight or 9, the two bettors stand.

- If the player has five or less, he hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart might be used to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores wins. Winning stakes on the banker payout 19 to twenty (even money less a 5% commission. Commission is monitored and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure that you have money still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winning bets for tie generally pay out 8 to one and on occasion 9 to one. (This is a terrible bet as ties occur lower than 1 every 10 hands. abstain from placing bets on a tie. However odds are significantly better – nine to 1 versus 8 to 1)

When done correctly, baccarat provides fairly good odds, apart from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some well-known myths. One of which is similar to a roulette misconception. The past is not an actual indicator of future results. Tracking of past outcomes on a chart is a waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and possibly most successful tactic is the one-three-2-6 scheme. This scheme is employed to accentuate payouts and lowering risk.

Begin by wagering one unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, clear away 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd gamble. If you win the 3rd gamble, add two to the 4 on the table for a value of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you lose on the first bet, you take a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the 2nd causes a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. A win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
