Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards with less than a value of 10 are of their printed number while at the same time ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual gamblers; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for any hand shall be the sum total of the two cards, but the initial digit is dropped. For e.g., a hand of seven and five will have a value of 2 (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card can be played depending on the foll. protocols:

- If the gambler or banker has a total of 8 or nine, the two gamblers stand.

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

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

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores will be the winner. Successful wagers on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even money less a 5% commission. Commission is followed closely and moved out when you leave the table so be sure to have cash still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie by and large pays 8 to 1 and sometimes 9 to 1. (This is not a good wager as ties occur lower than 1 every 10 hands. Definitely don’t try putting money on a tie. Even so odds are emphatically better – 9 to one vs. 8 to 1)

Played correctly, baccarat provides relatively good odds, aside from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with many games, Baccarat has some well-known misunderstandings. 1 of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way an indicator of future happenings. Staying abreast of last conclusions on a chart is a total waste of paper as well as an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and probably most successful method is the 1-three-two-six technique. This scheme is deployed to maximize wins and controlling risk.

start by betting one 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, clear away 4 so you have two on the 3rd bet. If you win the third bet, add two to the 4 on the table for a sum of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 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. Winning all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means that you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
