Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards with less than a value of 10 are of face value while ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual gamblers; they just symbolize the 2 hands to be given out).

2 hands of 2 cards will then be given out to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for every hand is the total of the two cards, but the very first digit is dropped. For example, a hand of seven and five results in a total score of 2 (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card may be played depending on the foll. practices:

- If the gambler or banker has a tally of 8 or nine, each players stand.

- If the bettor has 5 or less, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or lower. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores is the winner. Winning wagers on the banker pay at 19 to twenty (even money minus a 5% commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so ensure you have $$$$$ left before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie typically pay eight to 1 and on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a bad gamble as ties will occur less than 1 every ten hands. abstain from placing bets on a tie. Regardless odds are supremely better – 9 to one vs. eight to one)

When done accurately, baccarat provides pretty good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with every games, Baccarat has some common myths. One of which is similar to a roulette myth. The past is never actually a predictor of future events. Monitoring of prior results on a chart is for sure a waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most common and probably most successful strategy is the 1-3-2-six method. This tactic is used to amplify wins and minimizing risk.

commence by betting one 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 six on the table, clear away four so you have 2 on the third bet. If you win the 3rd bet, add two to the 4 on the table for a value of 6 on the fourth bet.

If you lose on the first bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second causes a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. In other words that you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
