Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued less than ten are said to be worth their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual gamblers; they purely represent the 2 hands to be played).

2 hands of 2 cards will now be played to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for each hand shall be the total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is dropped. For example, a hand of 7 … five results in a total score of 2 (sevenplusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A third card may be played depending on the following codes:

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

- If the bettor has five or lower, he hits. bettors stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores will be the winner. Successful stakes on the banker payout 19 to 20 (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and paid out when you leave the table so make sure that you have $$$$$ left before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie commonly pay out eight to one and sometimes nine to 1. (This is a terrible bet as ties happen less than one every ten hands. Stay away from putting money on a tie. Nevertheless odds are remarkably better – nine to 1 versus eight to 1)

Played correctly, baccarat presents fairly decent odds, away from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with most games, Baccarat has some established false impressions. One of which is close to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way an indicator of future events. Monitoring of historic results on a chart is definitely a complete waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most popular and probably most successful technique is the one-three-2-6 scheme. This technique is used to maximize earnings and minimizing risk.

commence by wagering 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, take away 4 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 wager.

If you lose on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd creates 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 three with a loss on the fourth mean you break even. A win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. In other words you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
