## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards that are valued under ten are valued at their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they purely symbolize the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of two cards will now be given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for any hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of 7 and 5 gives a value of two (7plus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be played depending on the following regulations:

- If the player or banker has a total score of 8 or nine, then both bettors stand.

- If the bettor has five or lower, he/she hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores is the winner. Winning stakes on the banker pay nineteen to 20 (even odds less a 5% commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so be sure to have $$$$$ left before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winning bets for tie commonly pays eight to 1 but occasionally 9 to one. (This is not a good gamble as ties will happen lower than 1 every 10 hands. Run away from betting on a tie. Nevertheless odds are positively better – 9 to one vs. eight to one)

When played accurately, baccarat provides pretty good odds, apart from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some established false impressions. One of which is very similar to a roulette myth. The past is surely not a predictor of future actions. Monitoring of historic results on a chart is undoubtedly a complete waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and almost certainly most successful technique is the one-3-two-six scheme. This plan is used to magnify wins and cutting back risk.

commence by betting one unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 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 3rd bet. If you win the third wager, add two to the four on the table for a value of six on the 4th wager.

If you lose on the initial wager, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed by loss on the 2nd brings about 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 three with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. Thus that you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
