Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are valued less than ten are give a value of their printed number while at the same time ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they only symbolize the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards will now be played to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for each hand will be the grand total of the two cards, but the initial digit is discarded. For example, a hand of seven … 5 results in a score of two (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card can be given out depending on the foll. protocols:

- If the player or banker has a total of 8 or 9, the two players stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, he hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the gambler hits, a chart shall be used to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores is the winner. Victorious stakes on the banker pay out 19 to twenty (even money minus a 5% commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so make sure to have funds left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie customarily pay out 8 to 1 and on occasion 9 to 1. (This is not a good wager as ties will occur lower than one every ten hands. Avoid betting on a tie. Regardless odds are certainly better – 9 to one vs. 8 to one)

When played properly, baccarat offers generally good odds, apart from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some established myths. One of which is very similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is never actually a predictor of future actions. Staying abreast of past outcomes 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 commonly used and probably most successful method is the 1-three-2-6 technique. This technique is deployed to amplify payouts and cutting back risk.

start by wagering 1 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 6 on the table, remove four so you have two on the 3rd gamble. If you win the third bet, add two to the four on the table for a sum of 6 on the fourth wager.

If you lose on the first wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the 2nd will create 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 4th mean you come out even. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
