Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards with less than a value of ten are worth 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 symbolize the two hands to be played).

2 hands of two cards will then be dealt to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for every hand is the sum total of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is removed. For example, a hand of 7 and 5 gives a tally of 2 (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card can be given depending on the following guidelines:

- If the player or banker has a score of eight or nine, each players stand.

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or lower. If the gambler hits, a chart shall be used to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores will be the winner. Successful bets on the banker pay 19 to 20 (even money less a five % commission. Commission is followed closely and paid out when you leave the table so make sure that you have cash still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie as a rule pay eight to one and occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a bad wager as ties will happen less than 1 every 10 hands. Stay away from betting on a tie. Still, odds are noticeably better – 9 to one versus 8 to 1)

When played properly, baccarat provides fairly good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some established myths. 1 of which is quite similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way a predictor of future happenings. Tracking of prior conclusions on a chart is definitely a waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and feasibly most successful strategy is the 1-three-2-six technique. This tactic is deployed to maximize earnings and minimizing risk.

Begin by betting 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, remove 4 so you have two on the third bet. If you win the 3rd bet, add two to the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th bet.

If you lose on the initial wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd causes a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
