Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards that are valued less than 10 are give a value of their printed number and on the other hand 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 individuals; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

2 hands of 2 cards will then be dealt to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for any hand is the sum total of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of seven and 5 results in a tally of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be played depending on the following protocols:

- If the player or banker has a tally of 8 or nine, the two players stand.

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the bettor hits, a chart might be used in order to ascertain if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores wins. Successful stakes on the banker payout 19 to twenty (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure to have cash left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winning bets for tie generally pays eight to 1 but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is an awful bet as ties will occur lower than one every ten hands. Avoid laying money on a tie. Regardless odds are richly better – 9 to one versus 8 to one)

When played accurately, baccarat presents fairly decent odds, away from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with many games, Baccarat has some common false impressions. One of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is not a predictor of future outcomes. Keeping track of prior conclusions on a chart is undoubtedly a complete waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and possibly most successful strategy is the 1-three-two-6 concept. This scheme is deployed to maximize payouts and minimizing risk.

start by wagering one unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, remove four so you have two on the third bet. If you win the third bet, add 2 to the four on the table for a sum total of six on the fourth gamble.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th 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 4 bets and still break even.
