## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards below a value of ten are give a value of their printed number and on the other hand ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual individuals; they simply represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for each hand will be the sum of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of seven … 5 produces a value of two (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

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

- If the bettor or banker has a score of eight or nine, then both gamblers stand.

- If the player has five or lower, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the player hits, a chart shall be used to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores wins. Successful bets on the banker pay at nineteen to twenty (even odds minus a 5 percent commission. Commission is tracked and moved out when you leave the table so make sure that you have money remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to one. Winner bets for tie as a rule pay out 8 to one but sometimes 9 to one. (This is not a good bet as ties will happen less than 1 every ten hands. Stay away from placing bets on a tie. Even so odds are positively better – 9 to one versus 8 to one)

Played properly, baccarat presents relatively good odds, away from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some common misunderstandings. 1 of which is quite similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way an indicator of future happenings. Monitoring of prior outcomes on a chart is for sure a total waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and probably most successful method is the 1-three-two-six concept. This schema is employed to magnify profits and lowering risk.

commence by betting one 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, remove 4 so you have 2 on the third gamble. If you win the third gamble, add two to the 4 on the table for a grand total of six on the fourth gamble.

If you don’t win on the 1st wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd 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 three with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. Thus you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
