Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards under 10 are valued at face value whereas 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 simply appear as the 2 hands to be played).

2 hands of two cards will now be given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for any hand shall be the grand total of the 2 cards, but the first digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of seven and 5 will have a score of 2 (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

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

- If the player or banker has a total of eight or nine, the two players stand.

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

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the player 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 wagers on the banker payout nineteen to 20 (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is monitored and moved out when you leave the table so ensure you have cash left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winning bets for tie as a rule pay out 8 to 1 and sometimes nine to 1. (This is not a good wager as ties will occur lower than 1 every 10 hands. Run away from putting money on a tie. Nevertheless odds are considerably better – 9 to 1 vs. 8 to one)

Played effectively, baccarat offers relatively decent odds, away from the tie bet obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some common misconceptions. 1 of which is similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way an indicator of future actions. Keeping track of past conclusions on a chart is undoubtedly a complete waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and feasibly most successful technique is the 1-three-2-6 technique. This plan is employed to maximize wins and cutting back risk.

Begin by wagering one unit. If you win, add one 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 4 so you have two on the third bet. If you win the 3rd gamble, add two to the 4 on the table for a sum of six on the fourth wager.

If you lose on the 1st 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 first two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you break even. Winning all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. Thus you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
