Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards of a value less than 10 are of face value whereas 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they just represent the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The value for every hand is the total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For example, a hand of seven … five gives a total of two (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card might be dealt depending on the foll. guidelines:

- If the player or banker has a value of 8 or nine, the two bettors stand.

- If the player has 5 or lower, he hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the player hits, a chart will be used to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores is the winner. Winning stakes on the banker pay 19 to 20 (even odds less a five percent commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so ensure you have cash left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie as a rule pays out at 8 to 1 but sometimes nine to 1. (This is a crazy bet as ties occur less than one every 10 hands. Definitely don’t try wagering on a tie. Even so odds are thoroughly better – 9 to one vs. 8 to one)

Played effectively, baccarat provides relatively decent odds, away from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games, Baccarat has some common misconceptions. 1 of which is quite similar to a roulette misconception. The past is surely not an actual indicator of future events. 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 to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and probably most successful method is the one-three-two-six scheme. This scheme is used to maximize payout and minimizing risk.

commence by gambling 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, subtract four so you have two on the third wager. If you win the third bet, add two to the four on the table for a value of six on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the first bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd brings about 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 fourth mean you break even. Coming away with a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
