Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards with less than a value of ten are valued at their printed number whereas ten, 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 people; they simply appear as the two hands to be given out).

Two hands of two cards are then played to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for any hand is the sum total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is dropped. For example, a hand of 7 and five produces a total score of 2 (7plus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card could be played depending on the foll. standards:

- If the player or banker has a total of 8 or nine, each players stand.

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

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart will be used in order to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores wins. Victorious bets on the banker pay out 19 to 20 (even money minus a five percent commission. Commission is followed closely and paid out when you leave the table so make sure that you have money left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie customarily pays 8 to 1 but on occasion nine to 1. (This is a terrible bet as ties occur lower than 1 every 10 hands. be wary of betting on a tie. Nonetheless odds are substantially better – 9 to 1 versus eight to one)

Played effectively, baccarat provides relatively good odds, aside from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with every games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. 1 of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is surely not an indicator of future results. Staying abreast of last outcomes on a chart is simply a total waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most common and possibly most successful technique is the one-three-two-6 concept. This tactic is employed to magnify wins and lowering risk.

Begin by wagering one 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, remove four so you have two on the third wager. If you win the 3rd gamble, add two to the four on the table for a total of 6 on the fourth gamble.

If you don’t win on the first bet, you suck up 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 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 come out even. Arriving at a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. Therefore you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
