Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards that are valued less than 10 are give a value of their printed number while at the same time 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 gamblers; they just symbolize the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of two cards are then given out to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for any hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is removed. For eg, a hand of seven as well as five produces a tally of 2 (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be given out depending on the foll. standards:

- If the player or banker has a score of 8 or 9, the two players stand.

- If the gambler has five or lower, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores is the winner. Successful bets on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even money less a five percent commission. Commission is followed closely and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have money left before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winner bets for tie commonly pay eight to one but on occasion nine to one. (This is a bad bet as ties will happen lower than one every ten hands. Avoid placing bets on a tie. Even so odds are certainly better – 9 to one versus eight to 1)

When done correctly, baccarat offers fairly decent odds, away from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some established false impressions. One of which is quite similar to a roulette myth. The past is not an actual indicator of future outcomes. Monitoring of previous conclusions on a chart is for sure a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and possibly most successful method is the one-3-two-six concept. This scheme is employed to magnify successes and lowering risk.

Begin by gambling one 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, remove 4 so you have two on the 3rd bet. If you win the 3rd gamble, add two to the 4 on the table for a sum of 6 on the fourth gamble.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd will create a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Arriving at a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. This means you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
