Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards of a value less than 10 are valued at their printed number whereas 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they simply symbolize the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards will then be dealt to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for each hand shall be the sum of the two cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For example, a hand of seven and five has a value of 2 (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card might be given depending on the following practices:

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

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the player hits, a chart will be used in order to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores wins. Successful stakes on the banker pay 19 to twenty (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so ensure that you have funds left before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to one. Winner bets for tie commonly pay eight to one and sometimes nine to 1. (This is a bad wager as ties will occur lower than one every ten hands. Definitely don’t try placing bets on a tie. However odds are considerably better – 9 to one versus eight to 1)

When done smartly, baccarat presents pretty decent odds, aside from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some established misunderstandings. One of which is close to a misconception of roulette. The past is never actually an actual indicator of future events. Keeping track of previous outcomes on a chart is a waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most established and probably most successful method is the 1-three-two-6 method. This plan is deployed to magnify winnings and reducing risk.

start by gambling 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, take away four so you have 2 on the third wager. If you win the 3rd wager, add two to the four on the table for a sum of 6 on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the 1st wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the second creates a loss of two. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. Thus you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
