## Baccarat Rules

Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards valued less than 10 are worth face value and on the other hand 10, 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 players; they merely depict the two hands to be played).

2 hands of two cards will then be dealt to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for each hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is removed. For eg, a hand of seven as well as 5 gives a score of 2 (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A third card could be played depending on the foll. codes:

- If the gambler or banker has a tally of eight or 9, the two gamblers stand.

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the player hits, a chart might be used in order to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores wins. Winning stakes on the banker pay at nineteen to 20 (even money minus a 5 percent commission. Commission is followed closely and moved out when you leave the table so be sure to have $$$$$ remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie as a rule pays 8 to 1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is not a good bet as ties happen less than one every 10 hands. be wary of putting money on a tie. However odds are supremely better – nine to 1 versus eight to one)

When done accurately, baccarat presents relatively good odds, apart from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. 1 of which is very similar to a roulette myth. The past is never actually a predictor of future happenings. Tracking of previous conclusions on a chart is definitely a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and possibly most successful technique is the one-three-2-6 technique. This scheme is employed to pump up profits and controlling risk.

Begin by betting 1 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 six on the table, clear away four so you have two on the third gamble. If you win the 3rd gamble, add 2 to the four on the table for a total of six on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the initial wager, you suck up a loss of one. 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 third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three 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 ten. In other words you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
