Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards of a value less than 10 are give a value of their printed value 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 gamblers; they merely depict the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for every hand is the sum of the two cards, but the 1st digit is removed. For e.g., a hand of 7 … five results in a tally of two (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card can be played depending on the following guidelines:

- If the bettor or banker has a value of eight or nine, then both players stand.

- If the bettor has five or less, he hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the gambler hits, a chart will be used in order to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores will be the winner. Winning bets on the banker pay 19 to twenty (even odds minus a five percent commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so ensure you have cash left before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie by and large pays out at eight to one and on occasion nine to 1. (This is an awful wager as ties will occur less than one every 10 hands. Avoid wagering on a tie. However odds are emphatically better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to 1)

Played accurately, baccarat provides generally good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with every games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. One of which is quite similar to a roulette myth. The past is never actually an actual indicator of future actions. Tracking of past results on a chart is simply a waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and probably most successful technique is the one-3-2-six method. This process is used to boost wins and cutting back risk.

commence by betting one unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, subtract 4 so you have 2 on the third wager. If you win the 3rd bet, add two to the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the fourth wager.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the second will create a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. Thus that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
