Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards under ten are said to be worth face value whereas 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual individuals; they only act as the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for every hand is the total of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is dropped. For example, a hand of seven as well as five produces a score of two (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card can be dealt depending on the following regulations:

- If the bettor or banker has a value of eight or 9, both bettors stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or less, he hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores wins. Successful bets on the banker pay out 19 to twenty (even money minus a five % commission. Commission is tracked and moved out when you leave the table so ensure that you have money remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie normally pay eight to one and sometimes nine to 1. (This is an awful wager as ties will occur less than 1 every 10 hands. Stay away from wagering on a tie. Still, odds are emphatically better – nine to 1 versus eight to 1)

Played correctly, baccarat provides fairly decent odds, away from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some established misconceptions. 1 of which is close to a misconception of roulette. The past is not a predictor of future events. Staying abreast of historic conclusions on a chart is a waste of paper as well as an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most established and probably most successful tactic is the one-three-2-six method. This process is employed to build up wins and controlling risk.

commence by betting one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, remove four so you have 2 on the third gamble. If you win the 3rd wager, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you lose on the first wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second brings about a loss of two. Wins on the first two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Getting a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. In other words that you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
