Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are valued less than 10 are valued at face value whereas 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they just symbolize the 2 hands to be played).

2 hands of two cards will now be dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for any hand shall be the sum of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is removed. For eg, a hand of seven and 5 produces a tally of two (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card can be dealt depending on the foll. standards:

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

- If the gambler has five or lower, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores will be the winner. Winning stakes on the banker pay out nineteen to twenty (even money less a 5% commission. Commission is monitored and cleared out when you leave the table so ensure that you have dollars left before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winner bets for tie generally pays eight to 1 and occasionally nine to 1. (This is not a good gamble as ties will happen lower than one every ten hands. be wary of laying money on a tie. However odds are supremely better – nine to one vs. 8 to one)

Played properly, baccarat provides pretty decent odds, apart from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with many games, Baccarat has some common misunderstandings. 1 of which is quite similar to a roulette myth. The past is never actually a predictor of future happenings. Keeping track of prior results on a chart is a total waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and possibly most successful tactic is the one-3-2-6 scheme. This method is deployed to pump up wins and lowering risk.

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

If you lose on the initial bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd causes a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you breakeven. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. In other words that you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
