## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards below a value of 10 are counted at their printed number meanwhile 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they just act as the 2 hands to be given out).

2 hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for any hand will be the grand total of the two cards, but the initial digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of 7 and five produces a value of 2 (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card could be played depending on the following codes:

- If the bettor or banker has a total of 8 or nine, the two bettors stand.

- If the gambler has five or lower, he/she hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the gambler hits, a chart shall be used in order to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the two scores will be the winner. Successful wagers on the banker pay 19 to 20 (even money less a five % commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure you have $$$$$ left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie customarily pay eight to one and occasionally nine to 1. (This is a crazy wager as ties will occur lower than one every 10 hands. Stay away from betting on a tie. Even so odds are certainly better – 9 to one versus eight to 1)

Played smartly, baccarat offers generally good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some well-known false impressions. 1 of which is quite similar to a roulette misconception. The past is never actually an indicator of future results. Keeping track of old outcomes on a chart is simply a total waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and possibly most successful tactic is the one-three-two-6 scheme. This schema is employed to maximize successes and minimizing risk.

start by betting one unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, clear away four so you have two on the 3rd gamble. If you win the 3rd bet, add two to the four on the table for a sum of 6 on the fourth bet.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the second will create a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. In other words that you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
