Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards valued less than ten are counted at their printed value and on the other hand ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they only represent the two hands to be given out).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for every hand shall be the grand total of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is dropped. For example, a hand of 7 and 5 produces a total of 2 (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card could be given out depending on the following protocols:

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

- If the gambler has five or lower, he hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the bettor hits, a chart shall be used to ascertain if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the two scores will be the winner. Successful stakes on the banker payout 19 to twenty (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so make sure you have funds remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winner bets for tie customarily pays 8 to 1 and sometimes nine to one. (This is an awful bet as ties occur lower than one every 10 hands. Run away from betting on a tie. Nonetheless odds are greatly better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to 1)

When done correctly, baccarat offers relatively decent odds, away from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some established misconceptions. One of which is very similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is surely not a predictor of future actions. Staying abreast of previous conclusions on a chart is a waste of paper as well as an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and probably most successful tactic is the 1-three-2-six scheme. This tactic is deployed to amplify winnings and cutting back risk.

Begin by betting 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 6 on the table, take away 4 so you have 2 on the third bet. If you win the 3rd gamble, add two to the four on the table for a sum total of six on the fourth gamble.

If you lose on the first wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd will create a loss of two. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. Getting a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
