Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards which are valued less than 10 are counted at their printed value meanwhile 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 gamblers; they only represent the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards will then be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for any hand is the sum total of the two cards, but the very first digit is removed. For example, a hand of seven … five results in a value of 2 (7plus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A third card might be dealt depending on the following regulations:

- If the player or banker has a total of 8 or nine, each players stand.

- If the bettor has five or lower, he/she hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the gambler hits, a chart will be used to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores wins. Successful wagers on the banker payout 19 to twenty (even odds minus a five percent commission. Commission is followed closely and paid out when you leave the table so make sure to have $$$$$ still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie typically pay out eight to 1 but occasionally nine to one. (This is an awful wager as ties happen lower than one every 10 hands. Stay away from betting on a tie. Even so odds are significantly better – nine to one versus 8 to one)

Played smartly, baccarat offers generally good odds, apart from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some common myths. One of which is quite similar to a roulette myth. The past is surely not an actual indicator of future happenings. Tracking of past results on a chart is 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 popular and possibly most successful tactic is the one-three-two-six concept. This scheme is deployed to magnify payouts and cutting back risk.

commence by betting 1 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 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd wager. If you win the third bet, add 2 to the four on the table for a value of six on the fourth gamble.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. A win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
