## Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are valued under ten are valued at their printed number while 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 people; they strictly depict the two hands to be played).

2 hands of 2 cards will now be dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the total of the 2 cards, but the first digit is discarded. For example, a hand of seven as well as five produces a score of two (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A third card could be given out depending on the following codes:

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

- If the player has 5 or less, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or lower. If the player hits, a chart shall be used in order to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores wins. Winning stakes on the banker pay out nineteen to twenty (even odds less a 5 percent commission. Commission is followed closely and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure to have dollars still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winner bets for tie as a rule pays 8 to one but on occasion nine to 1. (This is not a good gamble as ties will occur lower than 1 every ten hands. abstain from wagering on a tie. Nonetheless odds are thoroughly better – 9 to one vs. eight to 1)

When played accurately, baccarat provides pretty good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with many games, Baccarat has some well-known misunderstandings. One of which is quite similar to a roulette myth. The past is never actually an indicator of future events. Monitoring of prior conclusions on a chart is simply a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and probably most successful method is the one-three-two-six method. This process is used to amplify winnings and limiting risk.

start by betting 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, subtract 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd bet. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the first wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second brings about a loss of two. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Winning at all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. Therefore you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
