Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards which are of a value less than ten are give a value of their printed number while at the same time 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 contenders; they just appear as the two hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand shall be the sum of the two cards, but the very first digit is dumped. For eg, a hand of seven and five gives a value of 2 (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be dealt depending on the following codes:

- If the bettor or banker has a total score of eight or 9, both bettors stand.

- If the bettor has 5 or less, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores will be the winner. Victorious bets on the banker pay 19 to twenty (even odds less a five % commission. Commission is tracked and moved out when you leave the table so be sure to have dollars left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie commonly pays eight to one and on occasion nine to 1. (This is a terrible bet as ties occur less than 1 every ten hands. Run away from placing bets on a tie. Nevertheless odds are decidedly better – 9 to 1 versus 8 to 1)

When played accurately, baccarat offers fairly decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with many games, Baccarat has some established myths. 1 of which is close to a roulette myth. The past is in no way an indicator of future outcomes. Staying abreast of historic outcomes on a chart is undoubtedly a waste of paper as well as an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and possibly most successful technique is the one-three-2-six technique. This schema is employed to magnify payout and reducing risk.

start by wagering one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, clear away four so you have 2 on the 3rd wager. If you win the third bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the first bet, you take a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. Winning all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. Thus you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
