Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards which are valued less than 10 are counted at their printed number meanwhile ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they just symbolize the two hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards will now be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for any hand will be the sum total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is removed. For eg, a hand of seven as well as 5 has a total score of two (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card may be dealt depending on the foll. guidelines:

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

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

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the player hits, a chart is used to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores is the winner. Successful bets on the banker pay out nineteen to twenty (even money less a five % commission. Commission is kept track of and paid out when you leave the table so make sure that you have money left before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie typically pay 8 to 1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is a terrible gamble as ties will occur less than 1 every ten hands. Avoid laying money on a tie. Regardless odds are significantlly better – 9 to one versus 8 to 1)

When done effectively, baccarat offers fairly decent odds, away from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games, Baccarat has some established myths. One of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way an indicator of future outcomes. Keeping track of historic conclusions on a chart is simply 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 popular and feasibly most successful technique is the 1-3-two-six technique. This plan is used to pump up payout and cutting back risk.

Begin by gambling one unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, remove 4 so you have two on the third gamble. If you win the 3rd gamble, add 2 to the four on the table for a total of six on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the first wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed 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 two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. Therefore you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
