## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are valued less than ten are give a value of their printed number while ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual individuals; they purely represent the two hands to be played).

2 hands of two cards will now be given out to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for any hand will be the total of the two cards, but the initial digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of seven … 5 produces a value of 2 (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card can be dealt depending on the foll. rules:

- If the gambler or banker has a total of 8 or 9, then both players stand.

- If the player has 5 or lower, he/she hits. bettors stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores is the winner. Winning stakes on the banker pay out 19 to twenty (even odds less a five percent commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so make sure you have money remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winning bets for tie typically pays 8 to 1 but occasionally nine to 1. (This is a bad bet as ties will happen lower than one every 10 hands. Definitely don’t try putting money on a tie. Still, odds are noticeably better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to one)

When played smartly, baccarat presents pretty good odds, aside from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with every games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. One of which is close to a roulette misconception. The past is never actually an actual indicator of future events. Staying abreast of prior conclusions on a chart is undoubtedly a complete waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and feasibly most successful tactic is the one-3-two-six concept. This tactic is deployed to pump up payouts and controlling risk.

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

If you lose on the first bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd will create a loss of 2. Wins on the first 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 come out even. Getting a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. Therefore that you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
