Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards below a value of 10 are said to be at their printed value whereas 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 contenders; they strictly act as the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards will now be played to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The value for any hand is the grand total of the two cards, but the initial digit is dropped. For example, a hand of 7 … 5 results in a total of two (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card could be given out depending on the following regulations:

- If the bettor or banker has a total score of eight or 9, then both gamblers stand.

- If the player has five or lower, he/she hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores is the winner. Successful wagers on the banker payout nineteen to twenty (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is tracked and paid out when you leave the table so make sure you have $$$$$ left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winning bets for tie as a rule pays out at eight to one but on occasion nine to one. (This is an awful wager as ties will happen less than 1 every 10 hands. be wary of placing bets on a tie. However odds are supremely better – 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

When played effectively, baccarat presents fairly good odds, apart from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some established myths. One of which is similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way a predictor of future actions. Tracking of prior 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 method is the 1-three-2-6 technique. This schema is employed to boost wins and reducing risk.

commence by wagering 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 6 on the table, remove 4 so you have two on the third bet. If you win the 3rd gamble, add two to the four on the table for a sum of six on the fourth gamble.

If you don’t win on the first wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the 2nd will create a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you break even. Winning at all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. Therefore that you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
