Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards of a value less than 10 are of face value whereas 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual gamblers; they strictly depict the two hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards shall then be played to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for any hand shall be the sum total of the two cards, but the first digit is discarded. For e.g., a hand of seven … 5 results in a total of 2 (7plus5=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card can be given depending on the following guidelines:

- If the gambler or banker has a score of 8 or 9, each players stand.

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores is the winner. Winning bets on the banker pay nineteen to twenty (even money less a five percent commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so ensure that you have cash left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winner bets for tie generally pay 8 to 1 and occasionally nine to one. (This is not a good gamble as ties happen lower than one every 10 hands. Definitely don’t try wagering on a tie. However odds are actually better – nine to 1 vs. eight to one)

When done effectively, baccarat presents relatively decent odds, away from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some common myths. One of which is close to a roulette misconception. The past is never actually an indicator of future results. Keeping track of previous conclusions on a chart is definitely a complete waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most popular and possibly most successful technique is the 1-three-two-6 method. This technique is deployed to amplify winnings and reducing risk.

commence by betting one unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, remove four so you have two on the third wager. If you win the 3rd wager, add two to the four on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you don’t win on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed by loss on the second creates a loss of two. Wins on the first 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 breakeven. A win on 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 4 bets and still break even.
