Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards of a value less than ten are worth their printed number and on the other hand 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual individuals; they strictly act as the two hands to be dealt).

2 hands of two cards are then given out to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for any hand shall be the total of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is removed. For eg, a hand of seven … 5 results in a score of 2 (7plus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card can be given depending on the following codes:

- If the bettor or banker has a total of 8 or nine, then both gamblers stand.

- If the gambler has five or lower, he/she hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the gambler hits, a chart might be used in order to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores is the winner. Successful wagers on the banker pay 19 to twenty (even odds less a 5% commission. Commission is monitored and moved out when you leave the table so make sure that you have cash left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie normally pay out 8 to one and occasionally 9 to one. (This is a bad gamble as ties happen less than 1 every ten hands. Avoid betting on a tie. Even so odds are supremely better – nine to 1 vs. eight to one)

When done accurately, baccarat provides fairly decent odds, away from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some common misunderstandings. One of which is close to a roulette myth. The past is in no way an indicator of future results. Staying abreast of prior outcomes on a chart is simply a total waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and feasibly most successful strategy is the one-three-two-6 concept. This method is employed to amplify winnings and controlling risk.

Begin by betting 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, take away 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd wager. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a grand total of six on the 4th gamble.

If you lose on the 1st bet, you take a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the second causes 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 three with a loss on the 4th mean you break even. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. Therefore that you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
