## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are valued less than 10 are give a value of face value while 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they strictly act as the two hands to be given out).

2 hands of two cards will now be given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The value for any hand shall be the sum total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is removed. For example, a hand of 7 and 5 will have a score of two (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card might be played depending on the following protocols:

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

- If the gambler has five or less, he hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart will be used to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores will be the winner. Successful bets on the banker pay 19 to 20 (even odds less a 5 percent commission. Commission is tracked and moved out when you leave the table so ensure that you have funds still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winning bets for tie generally pay out 8 to one and sometimes nine to 1. (This is a crazy bet as ties will occur lower than one every 10 hands. Run away from laying money on a tie. Even so odds are supremely better – nine to 1 vs. eight to one)

When played accurately, baccarat offers fairly good odds, away from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some common myths. One of which is very similar to a roulette myth. The past is surely not an actual indicator of future actions. Tracking of previous results on a chart is undoubtedly a complete waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and possibly most successful technique is the 1-3-2-6 scheme. This process is employed to amplify successes and limiting risk.

start by wagering one unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, clear away four so you have 2 on the third bet. If you win the 3rd wager, add 2 to the four on the table for a sum total of 6 on the fourth bet.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the 2nd causes a loss of two. Wins on the first 2 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 break even. A win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. In other words that you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
