Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards below a value of ten are said to be worth their printed value while 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 purely appear as the two hands to be dealt).

2 hands of two cards shall then be played to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for every hand will be the grand total of the 2 cards, but the first digit is dropped. For example, a hand of 7 and five has a tally of two (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card might be given out depending on the foll. regulations:

- If the gambler or banker has a total of eight or nine, each gamblers stand.

- If the player has 5 or lower, he/she hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the gambler hits, a chart shall be used in order to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores is the winner. Successful stakes on the banker payout nineteen to 20 (even odds less a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so make sure you have cash left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie customarily pay out 8 to 1 but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a crazy bet as ties happen less than one every ten hands. Run away from betting on a tie. Nonetheless odds are especially better – nine to one vs. 8 to 1)

When played properly, baccarat provides relatively good odds, aside from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some common false impressions. 1 of which is quite similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way an actual indicator of future results. Tracking of prior conclusions on a chart is for sure a total waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most common and possibly most successful technique is the one-three-2-six scheme. This process is used to maximize profits and controlling risk.

start by wagering 1 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, subtract four so you have 2 on the third wager. If you win the third gamble, add 2 to the four on the table for a sum of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of two. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. Therefore you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
