Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards that are valued under ten are worth their printed number meanwhile 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual gamblers; they only appear as the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for any hand will be the grand total of the two cards, but the first digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of 7 as well as five results in a score of 2 (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

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

- If the player or banker has a score of 8 or 9, the two bettors stand.

- If the player has five or lower, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores is the winner. Victorious wagers on the banker pay out nineteen to twenty (even money minus a 5% commission. Commission is monitored and moved out when you leave the table so be sure to have money left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winner bets for tie as a rule pays eight to one but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a terrible wager as ties occur less than one every ten hands. Avoid placing bets on a tie. Even so odds are positively better – nine to one vs. eight to 1)

When done properly, baccarat presents fairly good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some established misunderstandings. 1 of which is close to a roulette myth. The past is not an actual indicator of future actions. Monitoring of past outcomes on a chart is a total waste of paper as well as an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most popular and feasibly most successful tactic is the one-three-2-6 technique. This method is employed to maximize successes and minimizing risk.

commence by gambling one unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, clear away 4 so you have two on the third bet. If you win the third bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you lose on the 1st bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the second creates a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words that you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
