Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards with less than a value of 10 are counted at face value while 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 persons; they simply symbolize the two hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards will now be dealt to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for any hand is the grand total of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is dumped. For eg, a hand of seven and five produces a score of 2 (sevenplus5=12; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card can be given out depending on the following protocols:

- If the gambler or banker has a tally of eight or nine, each players stand.

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

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

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores wins. Victorious stakes on the banker payout 19 to twenty (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is monitored and moved out when you leave the table so ensure that you have funds left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to one. Winner bets for tie as a rule pays out at 8 to one but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a crazy wager as ties will happen less than 1 every 10 hands. be cautious of betting on a tie. However odds are thoroughly better – nine to 1 vs. eight to 1)

When done correctly, baccarat provides fairly good odds, apart from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with every games, Baccarat has some established myths. One of which is similar to a roulette myth. The past is never actually a predictor of future actions. Monitoring of last results on a chart is simply a waste of paper as well as an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and feasibly most successful strategy is the 1-3-2-six method. This technique is deployed to amplify earnings and cutting back risk.

Begin by wagering one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, take away four so you have 2 on the 3rd wager. If you win the 3rd bet, add two to the four on the table for a sum total of 6 on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the initial wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed by loss on the second brings about a loss of two. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Coming away with a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. This means that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
