Rules of Baccarat

[ English ]

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued less than 10 are give a value of their printed number whereas 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 individuals; they purely appear as the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for any hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the first digit is dumped. For eg, a hand of seven … 5 results in a tally of 2 (sevenplus5=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card can be played depending on the foll. standards:

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

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the player hits, a chart might be used to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores wins. Successful wagers on the banker pay nineteen to 20 (even money minus a 5% commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so ensure that you have $$$$$ remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winner bets for tie normally pay out 8 to one but occasionally nine to 1. (This is an awful bet as ties happen lower than 1 every 10 hands. be cautious of placing bets on a tie. Regardless odds are richly better – 9 to 1 versus eight to one)

When played smartly, baccarat offers generally decent odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some well-known misunderstandings. One of which is close to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way a predictor of future events. Staying abreast of last results on a chart is a total waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and possibly most successful technique is the one-three-two-six concept. This schema is used to accentuate profits and limiting risk.

start by gambling one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, clear away four so you have two on the third bet. If you win the third bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the initial wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed 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 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Winning all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. Therefore you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
