## Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards of a value less than ten are worth their printed value and on the other hand 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual individuals; they purely act as the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards will now be given out to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for any hand will be the grand total of the two cards, but the first digit is dropped. For example, a hand of 7 … five has a tally of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be given out depending on the following standards:

- If the bettor or banker has a total of eight or nine, the two players stand.

- If the player has 5 or less, he/she hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart is used in order to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores is the winner. Victorious wagers on the banker pay nineteen to 20 (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so be sure to have dollars remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winner bets for tie normally pay 8 to one and sometimes 9 to 1. (This is not a good wager as ties happen less than one every ten hands. Run away from betting on a tie. Nonetheless odds are richly better – nine to one versus 8 to 1)

When done effectively, baccarat offers pretty good odds, aside from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with every games, Baccarat has some common false impressions. One of which is quite similar to a roulette myth. The past is in no way an indicator of future results. Keeping track of old outcomes on a chart is definitely a total waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and possibly most successful method is the one-3-two-six scheme. This tactic is used to magnify profits and reducing risk.

commence by wagering one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, remove 4 so you have two on the third bet. If you win the third wager, add 2 to the four on the table for a value of 6 on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the first wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of two. 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 breakeven. Getting a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. Therefore you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
