Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued less than ten are give a value of face value and on the other hand 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they strictly depict the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for any hand shall be the total of the two cards, but the first digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of 7 … 5 has a score of 2 (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be given depending on the following standards:

- If the bettor or banker has a total of 8 or nine, then both players stand.

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

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the bettor hits, a chart is used to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores wins. Victorious stakes on the banker pay at 19 to twenty (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and paid out when you leave the table so ensure you have money left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie generally pays out at eight to one but occasionally 9 to one. (This is an awful bet as ties will occur less than 1 every ten hands. Avoid wagering on a tie. However odds are decidedly better – nine to one versus 8 to 1)

When played smartly, baccarat presents fairly decent odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some established misunderstandings. One of which is quite similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way an indicator of future outcomes. Keeping track of past results on a chart is for sure a complete waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most popular and probably most successful strategy is the one-3-2-six method. This scheme is deployed to magnify profits and controlling risk.

commence by betting 1 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 wager. If you win the 3rd bet, add two to the four on the table for a sum of 6 on the 4th wager.

If you lose on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second causes a loss of two. Wins on the 1st 2 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 break even. Winning all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
