Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards that are valued under 10 are of their printed number while at the same time 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 contenders; they purely represent the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards will then be given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for any hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is dropped. For e.g., a hand of seven as well as 5 produces a total score of 2 (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card could be given out depending on the foll. practices:

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

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the player hits, a chart shall be used in order to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores will be the winner. Winning wagers on the banker pay at 19 to 20 (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is monitored and paid out when you leave the table so make sure that you have dollars remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winner bets for tie typically pays out at eight to 1 but on occasion nine to 1. (This is a terrible bet as ties will occur lower than one every ten hands. Avoid laying money on a tie. Still, odds are radically better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to 1)

When done properly, baccarat provides fairly decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some established misunderstandings. One of which is close to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way a predictor of future actions. Staying abreast of prior conclusions on a chart is simply a complete waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and possibly most successful tactic is the 1-3-two-6 method. This plan is employed to build up wins and reducing risk.

commence by wagering 1 unit. If you win, add one 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, subtract 4 so you have 2 on the third wager. If you win the 3rd bet, add two to the 4 on the table for a sum of 6 on the fourth wager.

If you don’t win on the initial wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of two. Wins on the first 2 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. Getting a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. This means you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
