## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued under ten are counted at their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they just appear as the two hands to be played).

2 hands of two cards are then given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for any hand shall be the sum of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is removed. For e.g., a hand of seven and 5 produces a score of 2 (7plus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

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

- If the gambler or banker has a score of 8 or 9, each bettors stand.

- If the gambler has five or lower, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart might be used to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores will be the winner. Successful stakes on the banker pay out 19 to twenty (even money less a five % commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so make sure you have $$$$$ left before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie usually pays out at 8 to one and occasionally nine to one. (This is not a good bet as ties occur lower than 1 every ten hands. Definitely don’t try placing bets on a tie. Nevertheless odds are richly better – nine to 1 vs. 8 to one)

When done correctly, baccarat provides relatively decent odds, aside from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. 1 of which is close to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way a predictor of future results. Tracking of previous outcomes on a chart is simply a total waste of paper as well as an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and probably most successful tactic is the 1-3-two-six method. This plan is used to boost earnings and lowering risk.

start by gambling 1 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, clear away four so you have 2 on the third wager. If you win the 3rd bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a value of six on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed by loss on the second brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. Thus that you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
