Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards under ten are counted at face value whereas ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they merely symbolize the two hands to be played).

2 hands of 2 cards will now be played to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for any hand shall be the grand total of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For e.g., a hand of seven and five gives a tally of two (sevenplus5=12; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card could be dealt depending on the following regulations:

- If the gambler or banker has a value of eight or 9, then both bettors stand.

- If the bettor has 5 or less, he hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the gambler hits, a chart might be used in order to ascertain if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Successful wagers on the banker pay nineteen to 20 (even money minus a five % commission. Commission is followed closely and moved out when you leave the table so be sure to have dollars left before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winning bets for tie usually pays out at 8 to 1 but on occasion nine to 1. (This is an awful bet as ties will happen less than 1 every ten hands. Stay away from placing bets on a tie. Even so odds are substantially better – nine to 1 vs. eight to one)

When done effectively, baccarat presents pretty good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with every games, Baccarat has some common misconceptions. 1 of which is quite similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way a predictor of future results. Monitoring of last outcomes on a chart is simply a total waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and almost certainly most successful technique is the 1-3-2-six method. This process is deployed to build up wins and reducing risk.

start by wagering 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, subtract four so you have two on the 3rd wager. If you win the 3rd bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum of 6 on the fourth wager.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you take a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of two. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Getting a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. Thus you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
