Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are of a value less than ten are counted at their printed value while at the same time 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 people; they simply appear as the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of 2 cards will now be given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for each hand is the sum total of the two cards, but the very first digit is dumped. For eg, a hand of seven as well as five has a score of 2 (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A third card may be played depending on the foll. standards:

- If the gambler or banker has a score of eight or nine, then both gamblers stand.

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the gambler hits, a chart will be used to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores wins. Winning bets on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even money minus a five % commission. Commission is tracked and cleared out when you leave the table so ensure that you have cash remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winning bets for tie as a rule pay eight to one but occasionally nine to one. (This is a crazy wager as ties will happen less than 1 every 10 hands. Definitely don’t try betting on a tie. Still, odds are especially better – 9 to one versus eight to one)

When done effectively, baccarat provides pretty decent odds, aside from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some established myths. One of which is close to a roulette myth. The past is never actually a predictor of future outcomes. Keeping track of old outcomes on a chart is for sure a complete waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and possibly most successful method is the one-3-two-6 method. This plan is employed to magnify profits and controlling risk.

commence by wagering 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 six on the table, clear away four so you have two on the 3rd wager. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a value of six on the fourth wager.

If you lose on the initial wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed up 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. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
