## Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards valued less than ten are said to be at their printed value and on the other hand 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 players; they simply portray the two hands to be given out).

2 hands of 2 cards will now be dealt to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for each hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the first digit is discarded. For example, a hand of 7 … five has a value of two (sevenplus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A third card may be dealt depending on the following guidelines:

- If the player or banker has a value of 8 or nine, each bettors stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or less, he hits. bettors stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Winning wagers on the banker payout 19 to twenty (even money minus a five % commission. Commission is monitored and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have cash remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie customarily pay 8 to one but occasionally nine to 1. (This is a crazy wager as ties happen lower than one every 10 hands. Definitely don’t try placing bets on a tie. Still, odds are significantlly better – nine to 1 vs. eight to 1)

When played correctly, baccarat presents fairly decent odds, aside from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with many games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. One of which is quite similar to a roulette myth. The past is not an indicator of future results. Monitoring of historic outcomes on a chart is for sure a complete waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and almost certainly most successful strategy is the one-3-2-6 concept. This technique is employed to increase payouts and reducing risk.

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

If you don’t win on the 1st 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 two. 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 break even. A win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words that you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
