## Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued under ten are said to be at their printed number and on the other hand 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they just symbolize the 2 hands to be given out).

2 hands of 2 cards will then be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for any hand shall be the sum total of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is dropped. For e.g., a hand of seven … 5 results in a tally of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card can be given depending on the following protocols:

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

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the player hits, a chart shall be used in order to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores wins. Successful wagers on the banker pay out 19 to 20 (even money minus a five % commission. Commission is followed closely and moved out when you leave the table so make sure that you have cash remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie usually pay 8 to one but sometimes nine to one. (This is a terrible bet as ties will occur less than 1 every ten hands. abstain from putting money on a tie. Nevertheless odds are noticeably better – 9 to 1 versus eight to one)

Played smartly, baccarat provides generally decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games, Baccarat has some well-known myths. One of which is close to a roulette myth. The past is never actually an indicator of future events. Keeping track of prior conclusions on a chart is undoubtedly a total waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and probably most successful technique is the one-3-two-six technique. This tactic is employed to accentuate wins and cutting back risk.

commence by gambling one 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, clear away 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd wager. If you win the third bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th bet.

If you lose on the first wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second 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 breakeven. Winning at all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words that you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
