Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards below a value of 10 are give a value of their printed number whereas ten, 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 persons; they strictly depict the 2 hands to be dealt).

2 hands of two cards will now be given out to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for every hand will be the sum of the two cards, but the first digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of seven … five will have a tally of two (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card could be given depending on the foll. rules:

- If the player or banker has a total score of 8 or 9, each gamblers stand.

- If the bettor has five or less, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores is the winner. Victorious stakes on the banker payout 19 to twenty (even odds minus a five percent commission. Commission is followed closely and paid out when you leave the table so make sure that you have funds left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie typically pay out 8 to 1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a bad wager as ties occur less than one every ten hands. be cautious of putting money on a tie. Even so odds are vastly better – 9 to one vs. 8 to one)

Played accurately, baccarat offers relatively good odds, apart from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some established false impressions. One of which is very similar to a roulette myth. The past is in no way a predictor of future actions. Monitoring of last conclusions on a chart is definitely a complete waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and possibly most successful technique is the one-3-two-six method. This method is used to pump up winnings and controlling risk.

Begin by betting one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, take away 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd bet. If you win the 3rd bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a total of six on the fourth gamble.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet quickly 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 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Winning at all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. Thus that you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
