## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards valued less than ten are said to be worth their printed number whereas 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 players; they strictly represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

2 hands of two cards shall then be dealt to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for any hand will be the grand total of the two cards, but the first digit is removed. For e.g., a hand of 7 … 5 gives a score of two (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card can be played depending on the foll. regulations:

- If the player or banker has a score of eight or 9, then both gamblers stand.

- If the bettor has 5 or lower, he hits. bettors stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores will be the winner. Victorious stakes on the banker pay out 19 to 20 (even odds less a 5 percent commission. Commission is tracked and cleared out when you leave the table so be sure to have cash still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie normally pay out 8 to one but occasionally 9 to one. (This is a terrible wager as ties will happen less than one every ten hands. Run away from placing bets on a tie. Still, odds are remarkably better – nine to one versus eight to one)

When played smartly, baccarat offers pretty decent odds, away from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some well-known misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a roulette myth. The past is surely not an actual indicator of future events. Monitoring of old results on a chart is a complete waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most popular and almost certainly most successful strategy is the one-3-2-6 technique. This technique is employed to pump up wins and cutting back risk.

Begin by betting one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, remove four so you have 2 on the third bet. If you win the 3rd wager, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a grand total of 6 on the fourth wager.

If you lose on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second creates a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you break even. Getting a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. In other words you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
