Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards than are of a value less than 10 are said to be at their printed number whereas 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 people; they just symbolize the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of two cards will then be given out to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for each hand is the total of the two cards, but the first digit is discarded. For example, a hand of 7 and 5 has a value of two (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card might be given out depending on the foll. standards:

- If the player or banker has a tally of eight or 9, the two players stand.

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

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

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores is the winner. Victorious wagers on the banker pay 19 to twenty (even money minus a 5 percent commission. Commission is monitored and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have dollars left before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winning bets for tie normally pay out eight to 1 and occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a terrible wager as ties will happen less than 1 every ten hands. Run away from putting money on a tie. Nevertheless odds are significantly better – nine to 1 vs. 8 to one)

Played accurately, baccarat offers pretty decent odds, away from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with every games, Baccarat has some well-known false impressions. 1 of which is close to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way a predictor of future results. Monitoring of prior outcomes on a chart is definitely a total waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most common and probably most successful strategy is the one-three-2-6 technique. This tactic is deployed to accentuate successes and cutting back risk.

Begin by gambling 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 six on the table, subtract 4 so you have two on the third bet. If you win the 3rd wager, add two to the four on the table for a sum of six on the fourth gamble.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the second will create a loss of two. Wins on the first two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you break even. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. Thus you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
