## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards than are of a value less than 10 are give a value of their printed value meanwhile ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they strictly depict the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given out to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for each hand is the grand total of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is removed. For eg, a hand of 7 … 5 has a total of 2 (sevenplus5=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card might be given depending on the foll. rules:

- If the player or banker has a score of eight or nine, the two gamblers stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or lower. If the gambler hits, a chart will be used in order to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Victorious bets on the banker pay 19 to twenty (even odds less a 5% commission. Commission is monitored and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure to have cash left before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie customarily pays 8 to one and on occasion 9 to 1. (This is an awful gamble as ties will occur less than 1 every ten hands. Run away from putting money on a tie. However odds are noticeably better – 9 to one vs. eight to 1)

When done properly, baccarat offers fairly good odds, away from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some established misconceptions. One of which is close to a roulette myth. The past is never actually an actual indicator of future events. Monitoring of last outcomes on a chart is for sure a waste of paper as well as an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most popular and probably most successful strategy is the one-3-2-6 method. This process is deployed to increase successes and lowering risk.

commence by gambling 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, subtract 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd wager. If you win the 3rd bet, add two to the four on the table for a total of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you don’t win on the first wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. In other words you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
