Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards valued less than ten are said to be at face value meanwhile ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they strictly represent the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of 2 cards shall then be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for every hand is the sum total of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of 7 and five will have a value of 2 (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A third card might be played depending on the foll. protocols:

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

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

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

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the two scores will be the winner. Successful bets on the banker pay at nineteen to 20 (even money less a 5% commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have money left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winner bets for tie usually pay 8 to one and occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a crazy wager as ties occur less than one every ten hands. Definitely don’t try wagering on a tie. However odds are thoroughly better – nine to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

Played effectively, baccarat presents pretty good odds, aside from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some common false impressions. One of which is very similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is not a predictor of future happenings. Tracking of old results on a chart is simply a complete waste of paper as well as an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and possibly most successful method is the one-3-2-six concept. This tactic is deployed to maximize profits and limiting risk.

start by gambling 1 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 six on the table, take away four so you have 2 on the third wager. If you win the third bet, add two to the 4 on the table for a sum of six on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the first bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd causes a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. Therefore you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
