Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards than are of a value less than ten are of their printed value while ten, 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 individuals; they simply represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards shall then be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand shall be the grand total of the 2 cards, but the first digit is dropped. For example, a hand of 7 as well as 5 produces a value of 2 (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

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

- If the bettor or banker has a tally of 8 or 9, the two players stand.

- If the player has 5 or lower, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores wins. Victorious bets on the banker pay at nineteen to twenty (even odds less a 5% commission. Commission is monitored and paid out when you leave the table so make sure to have cash still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winner bets for tie typically pay out eight to one and sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a terrible gamble as ties will occur less than one every ten hands. Avoid placing bets on a tie. Nevertheless odds are somewhat better – 9 to 1 vs. 8 to one)

When played correctly, baccarat offers pretty good odds, aside from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games, Baccarat has some established myths. One of which is similar to a roulette misconception. The past is not an indicator of future events. Monitoring of historic results on a chart is a complete 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 almost certainly most successful method is the 1-three-two-6 method. This schema is deployed to boost earnings and lowering risk.

Begin by wagering 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, subtract four so you have two on the third bet. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a value of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you lose on the initial bet, you take a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you break even. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. In other words you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
