Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards that are valued less than 10 are valued at face value while ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they strictly act as the two hands to be dealt).

2 hands of 2 cards will now be played to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for any hand will be the total of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is dumped. For example, a hand of 7 as well as five produces a value of 2 (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card can be given depending on the following regulations:

- If the bettor or banker has a total score of eight or 9, each players stand.

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart shall be used to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay nineteen to twenty (even odds less a 5 percent commission. Commission is tracked and moved out when you leave the table so ensure that you have dollars left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winner bets for tie as a rule pay eight to one but sometimes 9 to one. (This is a bad gamble as ties happen less than one every 10 hands. be wary of betting on a tie. Still, odds are greatly better – 9 to 1 versus 8 to one)

When done accurately, baccarat provides pretty decent odds, apart from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games, Baccarat has some common misunderstandings. 1 of which is quite similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is never actually a predictor of future events. Tracking of prior results on a chart is undoubtedly a waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most established and possibly most successful technique is the 1-3-2-six method. This tactic is employed to increase payout and limiting risk.

commence by betting 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, subtract four so you have two on the 3rd wager. If you win the 3rd bet, add 2 to the four on the table for a total of 6 on the fourth bet.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the second creates a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you break even. Arriving at a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. In other words you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
