Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards which are valued less than ten are valued at face value while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual gamblers; they strictly act as the two hands to be played).

2 hands of 2 cards shall then be dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand shall be the sum total of the 2 cards, but the first digit is discarded. For e.g., a hand of 7 and five produces a tally of 2 (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be dealt depending on the foll. codes:

- If the player or banker has a value of eight or 9, the two bettors stand.

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

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

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores is the winner. Successful stakes on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even money minus a 5 percent commission. Commission is followed closely and cleared out when you leave the table so be sure to have money left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie commonly pay eight to 1 and occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a terrible wager as ties will happen less than 1 every 10 hands. Stay away from laying money on a tie. Even so odds are certainly better – nine to 1 versus eight to 1)

When done correctly, baccarat offers relatively decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. 1 of which is similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is not an actual indicator of future events. Keeping track of prior outcomes on a chart is a waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and feasibly most successful method is the one-3-2-six scheme. This process is deployed to magnify profits and cutting back risk.

Begin by betting 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, clear away four so you have 2 on the 3rd gamble. If you win the 3rd gamble, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the fourth wager.

If you don’t win on the first wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the second creates a loss of two. 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 4th mean you breakeven. Getting a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. In other words you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
