Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards under 10 are counted at their printed number while ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they simply symbolize the 2 hands to be given out).

2 hands of two cards shall then be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for any hand shall be the sum total of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of seven … five produces a total of two (sevenplus5=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card could be given out depending on the following rules:

- If the gambler or banker has a tally of 8 or 9, both gamblers stand.

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

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the bettor hits, a chart shall be used to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores wins. Victorious wagers on the banker pay at 19 to 20 (even odds less a five percent commission. Commission is monitored and paid out when you leave the table so ensure that you have funds still before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to one. Winner bets for tie normally pays eight to one but sometimes nine to one. (This is a terrible wager as ties happen lower than 1 every ten hands. Avoid placing bets on a tie. Nevertheless odds are thoroughly better – 9 to one vs. eight to 1)

Played accurately, baccarat provides generally good odds, aside from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with most games, Baccarat has some established misconceptions. One of which is very similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is surely not an indicator of future results. Keeping track of last conclusions on a chart is a total waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and almost certainly most successful strategy is the one-three-2-six technique. This method is employed to amplify payouts and lowering risk.

start by betting 1 unit. If you win, add one 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, subtract four so you have two on the 3rd gamble. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a sum total of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the second brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 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 breakeven. A win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. In other words that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
