Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued under ten are said to be worth their printed value while at the same time ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they strictly portray the two hands to be given out).

2 hands of 2 cards will then be dealt to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for each hand shall be the grand total of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is dropped. For e.g., a hand of seven … 5 has a value of 2 (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card might be dealt depending on the following regulations:

- If the gambler or banker has a total score of 8 or nine, both bettors stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, he/she hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay nineteen to twenty (even money minus a five percent commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have funds left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie customarily pays eight to one and occasionally 9 to one. (This is a bad gamble as ties happen less than 1 every ten hands. Run away from putting money on a tie. Regardless odds are substantially better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to one)

When done properly, baccarat offers relatively decent odds, aside from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with every games, Baccarat has some well-known misunderstandings. 1 of which is close to a roulette myth. The past is not a predictor of future actions. Keeping track of old 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 almost certainly most successful tactic is the one-three-2-six scheme. This plan is deployed to amplify payout and cutting back risk.

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

If you lose on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd causes a loss of two. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Coming away with a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. Thus that you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
