Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards than are of a value less than ten are counted at their printed value while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they merely portray the two hands to be given out).

Two hands of 2 cards will now be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for every hand is the sum total of the two cards, but the first digit is dropped. For e.g., a hand of seven … 5 results in a total of 2 (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card could be dealt depending on the foll. protocols:

- If the player or banker has a total of eight or nine, then both gamblers stand.

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or lower. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores is the winner. Victorious stakes on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is tracked and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure you have cash left before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winning bets for tie by and large pays out at 8 to 1 and occasionally 9 to 1. (This is not a good gamble as ties happen less than one every 10 hands. Run away from wagering on a tie. Nonetheless odds are radically better – 9 to one versus 8 to one)

Played correctly, baccarat presents generally decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with most games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. 1 of which is close to a misconception of roulette. The past is never actually an actual indicator of future happenings. Monitoring of past conclusions on a chart is a total waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and probably most successful strategy is the 1-3-2-six technique. This schema is deployed to amplify payout and lowering risk.

start by wagering one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the second 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 3rd gamble, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a total of six on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd will create a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you come out even. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. Thus you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
