## Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards of a value less than 10 are give a value of their printed value and on the other hand 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 contenders; they merely appear as the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards will then be given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for each hand shall be the sum total of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of 7 … 5 has a tally of 2 (7plus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card might be dealt depending on the foll. protocols:

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

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the bettor hits, a chart will be used to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores is the winner. Victorious stakes on the banker payout nineteen to 20 (even money less a 5% commission. Commission is kept track of and paid out when you leave the table so make sure that you have $$$$$ remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie usually pays 8 to one but on occasion nine to 1. (This is a bad wager as ties happen lower than 1 every ten hands. abstain from wagering on a tie. Regardless odds are remarkably better – nine to one vs. 8 to 1)

When done correctly, baccarat provides pretty good odds, aside from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some established misconceptions. 1 of which is very similar to a roulette myth. The past is in no way a predictor of future results. Tracking of past outcomes on a chart is definitely a waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and possibly most successful method is the 1-three-two-six method. This scheme is employed to maximize profits and lowering 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 2nd bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, clear away four so you have two on the third gamble. If you win the third bet, add two to the four on the table for a sum of six on the fourth bet.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet 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 two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. Winning all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. Thus you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
