Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued less than ten are valued at face value and on the other hand ten, 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 strictly symbolize the 2 hands to be given out).

2 hands of 2 cards will now be given out to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for any hand will be the sum total of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is removed. For e.g., a hand of seven and five will have a tally of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

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

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

- If the gambler has five or less, he hits. bettors stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores is the winner. Victorious bets on the banker pay at 19 to 20 (even money minus a five % commission. Commission is kept track of and paid out when you leave the table so make sure you have money still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie by and large pays out at 8 to one but occasionally nine to 1. (This is a bad gamble as ties occur lower than 1 every 10 hands. Stay away from putting money on a tie. Nonetheless odds are especially better – nine to one vs. 8 to one)

Played properly, baccarat provides generally good odds, aside from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with many games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. 1 of which is similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way an actual indicator of future outcomes. Tracking of historic conclusions on a chart is undoubtedly a total waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most established and possibly most successful tactic is the 1-3-two-six technique. This process is used to increase wins and minimizing risk.

Begin by gambling 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, take away four so you have 2 on the third gamble. If you win the 3rd wager, add two to the four on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the first wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd causes a loss of two. Wins on the 1st 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 come out even. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. In other words you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
