Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards under 10 are worth their printed number while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Wagers are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual players; they just act as the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for each hand is the grand total of the 2 cards, but the first digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of seven … five will have a total of two (7plus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A third card might be given depending on the following protocols:

- If the bettor or banker has a score of 8 or nine, the two players stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, he/she hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the gambler hits, a chart shall be used in order to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores is the winner. Winning stakes on the banker pay nineteen to 20 (even money less a five percent commission. Commission is followed closely and moved out when you leave the table so make sure to have money still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie usually pay out 8 to one but sometimes nine to one. (This is not a good wager as ties happen lower than one every 10 hands. Avoid betting on a tie. Regardless odds are actually better – 9 to one versus 8 to 1)

When done effectively, baccarat presents fairly good odds, aside from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with every games, Baccarat has some common misconceptions. 1 of which is close to a roulette myth. The past is in no way an indicator of future happenings. Tracking of last results on a chart is for sure a complete waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and probably most successful method is the 1-3-two-6 scheme. This plan is used to boost payouts and lowering risk.

commence by betting 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, take away four so you have 2 on the 3rd gamble. If you win the third bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the fourth wager.

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed by loss on the 2nd creates a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 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. 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.
