Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards below a value of 10 are give a value of their printed value and on the other hand ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual gamblers; they purely appear as the 2 hands to be given out).

2 hands of two cards will now be given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for each hand is the total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is removed. For example, a hand of 7 and 5 results in a score of 2 (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be given depending on the following practices:

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

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart shall be used to ascertain if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Successful stakes on the banker pay at nineteen to twenty (even money minus a five % commission. Commission is followed closely and moved out when you leave the table so make sure that you have funds left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winner bets for tie normally pays eight to 1 and occasionally 9 to one. (This is a terrible wager as ties will occur less than 1 every 10 hands. Stay away from betting on a tie. Regardless odds are greatly better – nine to 1 vs. 8 to one)

When played properly, baccarat offers pretty decent odds, aside from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some common misconceptions. 1 of which is quite similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way an actual indicator of future outcomes. Monitoring of prior results on a chart is a complete waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and feasibly most successful technique is the 1-three-2-6 method. This plan is deployed to pump up wins and limiting risk.

start by wagering 1 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 6 on the table, subtract 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd wager. If you win the 3rd wager, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th gamble.

If you lose on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the second creates a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. A win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. Therefore you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
