## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards valued less than ten are said to be at their printed number whereas 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 gamblers; they purely portray the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards will then be played to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for any hand shall be the total of the two cards, but the very first digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of 7 … 5 results in a score of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

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

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

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the player hits, a chart will be used in order to ascertain if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores is the winner. Winning bets on the banker payout 19 to 20 (even odds less a 5% commission. Commission is monitored and paid out when you leave the table so ensure that you have dollars left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie commonly pay out eight to 1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is not a good wager as ties happen lower than 1 every ten hands. Stay away from betting on a tie. Still, odds are thoroughly better – 9 to 1 versus eight to one)

When done smartly, baccarat offers relatively decent odds, apart from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some established misconceptions. One of which is quite similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way a predictor of future outcomes. Tracking of historic outcomes on a chart is undoubtedly a 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 probably most successful technique is the 1-three-2-6 method. This method is employed to pump up payouts and minimizing risk.

start by betting one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, remove four so you have 2 on the third bet. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a total of six on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the first bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the second will create a loss of two. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Winning at all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. In other words you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
