Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards which are valued less than ten are valued at their printed value meanwhile ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they only act as the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of 2 cards shall then be dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for any hand shall be the sum total of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For e.g., a hand of 7 as well as five has a tally of 2 (7plus5=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card could be given out depending on the following protocols:

- If the player or banker has a value of 8 or 9, then both gamblers stand.

- If the gambler has five or lower, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores will be the winner. Winning bets on the banker pay out 19 to twenty (even money minus a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure you have cash still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie commonly pay out eight to 1 and occasionally nine to one. (This is a bad wager as ties will occur lower than 1 every 10 hands. be cautious of laying money on a tie. Nevertheless odds are noticeably better – 9 to 1 versus 8 to one)

When done accurately, baccarat offers relatively decent odds, away from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with many games, Baccarat has some common misconceptions. 1 of which is very similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is not an actual indicator of future actions. Tracking of historic results on a chart is for sure a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and almost certainly most successful technique is the 1-three-2-6 concept. This technique is employed to pump up earnings and cutting back risk.

start 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 6 on the table, clear away 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd gamble. If you win the third bet, add two to the four on the table for a value 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 up by loss on the second causes 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 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
