Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards that are valued less than ten are give a value of their printed number while at the same time 10, 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 depict the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of two cards will then be given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for each hand will be the sum total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is dropped. For example, a hand of seven … 5 results in a tally of 2 (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be dealt depending on the following rules:

- If the player or banker has a total score of 8 or 9, each bettors stand.

- If the player has five or lower, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the bettor hits, a chart might be used to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the two scores will be the winner. Victorious bets on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even odds less a 5 percent commission. Commission is monitored and moved out when you leave the table so make sure that you have money left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie normally pays eight to 1 and occasionally 9 to one. (This is not a good gamble as ties happen less than one every ten hands. be wary of placing bets on a tie. However odds are somewhat better – nine to one versus 8 to 1)

When done properly, baccarat offers fairly good odds, away from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some common misconceptions. 1 of which is very similar to a roulette myth. The past is in no way an indicator of future outcomes. Monitoring of old results on a chart is a total waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most popular and feasibly most successful technique is the one-three-2-6 concept. This plan is employed to amplify wins and limiting risk.

Begin by gambling 1 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 six on the table, subtract 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd wager. If you win the 3rd gamble, add two to the four on the table for a value of 6 on the fourth gamble.

If you lose on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of two. Wins on the first two 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. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
