Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards which are of a value less than 10 are said to be at face 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 persons; they just act as the two hands to be given out).

2 hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for every hand will be the total of the two cards, but the very first digit is removed. For example, a hand of seven and five results in a total of two (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card can be given depending on the following rules:

- If the bettor or banker has a total of 8 or 9, both gamblers stand.

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

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of 5 or lower. If the bettor hits, a chart might be used to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the two scores wins. Victorious stakes on the banker pay at 19 to 20 (even odds less a five % commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have money still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winner bets for tie by and large pay out eight to one and sometimes 9 to 1. (This is an awful gamble as ties will happen lower than one every ten hands. Avoid putting money on a tie. Even so odds are emphatically better – 9 to one vs. 8 to 1)

When done correctly, baccarat presents fairly good odds, away from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some common misconceptions. One of which is very similar to a roulette myth. The past is never actually a predictor of future results. Staying abreast of previous outcomes on a chart is for sure a waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and probably most successful strategy is the one-3-two-6 concept. This technique is employed to boost payout and minimizing risk.

commence by wagering one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, clear away four so you have 2 on the third wager. If you win the 3rd bet, add 2 to the four on the table for a value of six on the fourth bet.

If you don’t win 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 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Accomplishing 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.
