Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards with less than a value of ten are counted at face value 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 gamblers; they just portray the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for each hand is the grand total of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is dumped. For example, a hand of seven as well as five has a score of two (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card might be given depending on the following codes:

- If the bettor or banker has a total score of eight or 9, each bettors stand.

- If the bettor has five or less, he/she hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores wins. Victorious wagers on the banker pay at nineteen to twenty (even odds less a 5% commission. Commission is tracked and moved out when you leave the table so make sure you have dollars remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie typically pay eight to 1 and on occasion nine to 1. (This is a crazy bet as ties will occur lower than one every 10 hands. Avoid betting on a tie. Regardless odds are richly better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to one)

When done properly, baccarat presents relatively good odds, apart from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some well-known false impressions. One of which is close to a roulette misconception. The past is not an indicator of future events. Keeping track of prior results on a chart is for sure a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and almost certainly most successful technique is the 1-3-two-six concept. This process is used to build up payout and cutting back risk.

start by betting 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, take away 4 so you have two on the 3rd gamble. If you win the 3rd wager, add two to the four on the table for a grand total of six on the 4th gamble.

If you don’t win on the initial wager, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. Coming away with a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. In other words you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
