Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards than are of a value less than ten are valued at their printed value while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they merely represent the two hands to be given out).

Two hands of two cards will then be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the very first digit is discarded. For e.g., a hand of seven … 5 will have a total score of two (7plus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A third card might be given out depending on the foll. regulations:

- If the player or banker has a score of 8 or 9, both bettors stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or less, he hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the gambler hits, a chart might be used to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores is the winner. Victorious wagers on the banker pay 19 to 20 (even money less a 5 percent commission. Commission is followed closely and paid out when you leave the table so make sure to have cash still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie as a rule pay out 8 to one and occasionally 9 to 1. (This is not a good bet as ties will happen less than 1 every 10 hands. be cautious of betting on a tie. Even so odds are exceedingly better – nine to 1 versus 8 to one)

When played accurately, baccarat presents fairly decent odds, away from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some established false impressions. One of which is quite similar to a roulette myth. The past is not an indicator of future results. Tracking of past results on a chart is for sure a complete waste of paper as well as an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and probably most successful technique is the 1-three-2-6 concept. This schema is deployed to accentuate payouts and cutting back risk.

Begin by wagering one 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 6 on the table, clear away four so you have 2 on the 3rd bet. If you win the 3rd gamble, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a grand total of six on the fourth gamble.

If you lose on the first wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the 2nd creates 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 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you break even. Winning all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. This means you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
