Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards which are valued less than 10 are said to be worth their printed value meanwhile ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual individuals; they merely act as the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards shall then be dealt to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The value for any hand shall be the total of the two cards, but the first digit is removed. For eg, a hand of seven as well as 5 will have a total of two (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

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

- If the player or banker has a tally of 8 or nine, the two bettors stand.

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or lower. If the player hits, a chart will be used to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores wins. Successful bets on the banker pay out 19 to twenty (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so be sure to have funds still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winning bets for tie customarily pay out 8 to 1 but occasionally nine to 1. (This is not a good bet as ties will occur lower than one every ten hands. Stay away from wagering on a tie. Nonetheless odds are vastly better – nine to 1 vs. eight to 1)

Played effectively, baccarat offers relatively decent odds, apart from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with many games, Baccarat has some established misconceptions. One of which is quite similar to a roulette misconception. The past is never actually a predictor of future happenings. Keeping track of past outcomes on a chart is definitely a total 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 possibly most successful tactic is the one-3-two-six concept. This tactic is used to build up earnings and limiting risk.

Begin by gambling one 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 bet. If you win the 3rd bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a grand total of six on the 4th bet.

If you lose on the initial bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the second brings about a loss of two. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you break even. Winning all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. Thus you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
