Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards under ten are worth their printed value whereas 10, 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 people; they simply act as the two hands to be dealt).

2 hands of 2 cards are then given out to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for any hand shall be the sum total of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is removed. For eg, a hand of 7 and 5 has a total of 2 (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card might be dealt depending on the foll. rules:

- If the bettor or banker has a total score of eight or 9, each players stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the gambler hits, a chart will be used to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores will be the winner. Winning bets on the banker pay 19 to 20 (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have cash left before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie typically pays out at 8 to 1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is not a good bet as ties happen lower than one every ten hands. abstain from laying money on a tie. Even so odds are substantially better – 9 to 1 versus 8 to 1)

When done smartly, baccarat presents pretty good odds, aside from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games, Baccarat has some well-known false impressions. One of which is close to a roulette misconception. The past is never actually a predictor of future outcomes. Monitoring of historic results on a chart is a total waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most popular and almost certainly most successful method is the one-3-two-6 scheme. This tactic is employed to pump up payouts and lowering risk.

commence by wagering 1 unit. If you win, add 1 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, remove four so you have 2 on the third bet. If you win the third bet, add two to the four on the table for a value of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you lose on the first wager, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the 2nd will create a loss of two. Wins on the first two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. Arriving at a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. Thus you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
