Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards than are of a value less than ten are valued at face value whereas 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they simply appear as the two hands to be given out).

Two hands of two cards will now be played to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for any hand will be the sum of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For example, a hand of 7 and 5 will have a tally of two (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

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

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

- If the player has 5 or lower, he hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores is the winner. Winning bets on the banker payout 19 to 20 (even odds less a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so ensure you have money left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winner bets for tie usually pay eight to 1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is a bad gamble as ties happen lower than 1 every ten hands. be cautious of putting money on a tie. Regardless odds are noticeably better – 9 to one versus 8 to one)

When done properly, baccarat offers pretty good odds, away from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some established misunderstandings. 1 of which is quite similar to a roulette myth. The past is surely not an indicator of future actions. Staying abreast of historic results on a chart is a complete waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most popular and almost certainly most successful tactic is the one-3-2-6 method. This tactic is employed to maximize wins and lowering risk.

commence by wagering one unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, clear away 4 so you have two on the 3rd gamble. If you win the 3rd wager, add 2 to the four on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the initial wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed by loss on the second brings about a loss of two. Wins on the 1st two 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 twelve, a profit of 10. Therefore you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
