## Rules of Baccarat

Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards of a value less than 10 are of their printed value while 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 gamblers; they just appear as the 2 hands to be dealt).

2 hands of 2 cards will then be dealt to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for each hand shall be the total of the two cards, but the very first digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of 7 and 5 will have a value of two (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card can be played depending on the foll. protocols:

- If the gambler or banker has a total of eight or nine, each gamblers stand.

- If the bettor has five or lower, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores is the winner. Successful wagers on the banker pay 19 to 20 (even money minus a five % commission. Commission is followed closely and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have dollars remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie normally pay 8 to one and on occasion 9 to 1. (This is not a good gamble as ties happen less than 1 every ten hands. Run away from placing bets on a tie. Even so odds are actually better – nine to one vs. 8 to 1)

When done correctly, baccarat presents relatively decent odds, away from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with every games, Baccarat has some well-known myths. One of which is close to a roulette misconception. The past is not a predictor of future outcomes. Monitoring of previous results on a chart is a total 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 accepted and possibly most successful technique is the one-three-two-six method. This schema is used to accentuate winnings and limiting risk.

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

If you don’t win on the 1st wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the second will create a loss of two. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means that you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
