Baccarat Standards

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

2 hands of 2 cards will now be given out to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for each hand will be the sum of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of seven as well as 5 has a value of two (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card may be dealt depending on the foll. regulations:

- If the bettor or banker has a total score of eight or 9, then both gamblers stand.

- If the bettor has 5 or less, he/she hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the bettor hits, a chart might be used in order to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores will be the winner. Victorious bets on the banker payout nineteen to twenty (even odds less a five percent commission. Commission is followed closely and paid out when you leave the table so ensure that you have cash left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winner bets for tie customarily pay out eight to one but occasionally nine to 1. (This is an awful wager as ties happen lower than one every 10 hands. Run away from wagering on a tie. However odds are positively better – 9 to 1 vs. eight to one)

Played smartly, baccarat presents relatively good odds, away from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some established false impressions. One of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way an indicator of future actions. Monitoring of historic results on a chart is simply a complete waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and almost certainly most successful technique is the one-three-2-six method. This method is deployed to build up profits and lowering risk.

start by gambling one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, take away 4 so you have two on the 3rd gamble. If you win the 3rd wager, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum of 6 on the fourth gamble.

If you lose on the initial bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the 2nd will create a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you break even. A win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
