Rules of Baccarat

[ English ]

Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are of a value less than ten are said to be at their printed number whereas ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they merely appear as the 2 hands to be dealt).

2 hands of two cards will now be given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for every hand will be the grand total of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is removed. For eg, a hand of 7 as well as 5 results in a total score of two (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card might be dealt depending on the following regulations:

- If the bettor or banker has a total of eight or 9, the two players stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, he/she hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the bettor hits, a chart shall be used to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Winning bets on the banker pay nineteen to twenty (even money less a five % commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so make sure you have $$$$$ still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winner bets for tie normally pays 8 to 1 but sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a terrible bet as ties occur less than 1 every ten hands. Definitely don’t try betting on a tie. Still, odds are positively better – 9 to 1 versus eight to one)

Played correctly, baccarat presents pretty good odds, away from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with every games, Baccarat has some established false impressions. 1 of which is similar to a roulette myth. The past is in no way a predictor of future actions. Staying abreast of past results on a chart is a waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most common and possibly most successful tactic is the 1-three-two-6 scheme. This method is used to boost successes and cutting back risk.

start by gambling one 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 6 on the table, clear away 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd gamble. If you win the 3rd wager, add two to the 4 on the table for a total of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you don’t win on the first wager, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd causes 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 4th mean you breakeven. Winning all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. Therefore that you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
