## Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards under 10 are of face value meanwhile ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual individuals; they only appear as the two hands to be given out).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for every hand will be the grand total of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of seven as well as five will have a value of two (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A third card can be given out depending on the foll. protocols:

- If the player or banker has a score of 8 or 9, both players stand.

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

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

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores will be the winner. Winning stakes on the banker pay at 19 to 20 (even money minus a 5% commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so make sure to have $$$$$ left before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie commonly pay 8 to one and occasionally 9 to one. (This is a terrible wager as ties occur lower than 1 every 10 hands. abstain from wagering on a tie. However odds are decidedly better – 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

When done correctly, baccarat provides relatively decent odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with most games, Baccarat has some common misconceptions. 1 of which is very similar to a roulette myth. The past is not a predictor of future events. Keeping track of historic outcomes on a chart is for sure a complete waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and possibly most successful strategy is the one-three-2-6 scheme. This method is deployed to accentuate payouts and cutting back risk.

commence by betting 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, subtract 4 so you have 2 on the third bet. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th bet.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the second creates a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Arriving at a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. Therefore you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
