Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards than are of a value less than 10 are worth face value while at the same time 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 individuals; they only symbolize the two hands to be dealt).

2 hands of 2 cards will now be given out to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for each hand is the sum total of the two cards, but the initial digit is dumped. For example, a hand of seven … 5 gives a total of 2 (7plus5=12; drop the ‘1′).

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

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

- If the gambler has five or less, he/she hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the bettor hits, a chart is used to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores is the winner. Victorious stakes on the banker pay nineteen to 20 (even odds less a five percent commission. Commission is followed closely and cleared out when you leave the table so ensure that you have money remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winner bets for tie normally pay out eight to 1 but occasionally 9 to one. (This is a terrible bet as ties occur less than 1 every 10 hands. Definitely don’t try placing bets on a tie. Nonetheless odds are richly better – 9 to one versus 8 to one)

When done correctly, baccarat presents generally decent odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games, Baccarat has some well-known myths. 1 of which is very similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way a predictor of future actions. Monitoring of previous conclusions on a chart is 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 commonly used and almost certainly most successful method is the one-3-two-6 concept. This process is used to accentuate profits and controlling risk.

Begin by betting one unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, clear away four so you have 2 on the 3rd bet. If you win the 3rd wager, add two to the 4 on the table for a value of six on the fourth bet.

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the second brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. In other words you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
