Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are valued under ten are counted at their printed number whereas 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 gamblers; they simply act as the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of two cards shall then be dealt to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The value for every hand will be the sum total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of seven as well as five results in a total of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card may be dealt depending on the following standards:

- If the gambler or banker has a value of 8 or 9, each players stand.

- If the gambler has five or less, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the player hits, a chart shall be used in order to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores wins. Winning stakes on the banker payout nineteen to 20 (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and paid out when you leave the table so make sure to have money left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winner bets for tie by and large pays out at eight to 1 and sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a crazy bet as ties will occur less than 1 every ten hands. be wary of wagering on a tie. Still, odds are decidedly better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to 1)

Played accurately, baccarat provides generally good odds, away from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some common misunderstandings. 1 of which is quite similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way an actual indicator of future outcomes. Monitoring of previous outcomes on a chart is a complete waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most established and almost certainly most successful strategy is the 1-three-2-six method. This plan is employed to increase earnings and cutting back risk.

Begin by gambling one 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, clear away four so you have two on the 3rd bet. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a grand total of 6 on the fourth gamble.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed by loss on the second causes a loss of two. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. Attaining a win 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.
