Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are valued less than ten are said to be worth their printed value and on the other hand 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 players; they simply represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The value for every hand shall be the sum of the two cards, but the initial digit is dumped. For eg, a hand of seven … five gives a tally of 2 (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card can be given depending on the foll. protocols:

- If the bettor or banker has a total of 8 or nine, then both players stand.

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

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the player hits, a chart shall be used in order to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores wins. Successful stakes on the banker pay nineteen to twenty (even money less a five % commission. Commission is tracked and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure to have dollars still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie typically pay out 8 to one and on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as ties will happen lower than one every ten hands. Stay away from putting money on a tie. However odds are noticeably better – 9 to one vs. 8 to 1)

When played effectively, baccarat presents generally good odds, apart from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some established misconceptions. 1 of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way a predictor of future happenings. Keeping track of prior outcomes on a chart is for sure a total waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most popular and probably most successful tactic is the 1-3-2-six concept. This tactic is employed to increase successes and minimizing risk.

start by wagering 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, subtract four so you have 2 on the third gamble. If you win the third bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you lose on the first wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second causes a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 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 come out even. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. Thus you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
