Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards which are of a value less than 10 are valued at their printed value while ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual individuals; they strictly symbolize the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards will then be given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for any hand shall be the sum total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of seven and 5 has a value of two (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A third card may be played depending on the following rules:

- If the gambler or banker has a value of 8 or nine, both gamblers stand.

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

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the bettor hits, a chart is used in order to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores is the winner. Successful stakes on the banker pay 19 to 20 (even odds minus a 5 percent commission. Commission is followed closely and moved out when you leave the table so make sure that you have dollars left before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie generally pay out 8 to 1 and sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a bad gamble as ties will occur less than one every 10 hands. abstain from laying money on a tie. Even so odds are far better – 9 to one versus 8 to one)

Played effectively, baccarat provides relatively good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with every games, Baccarat has some well-known misunderstandings. One of which is close to a roulette misconception. The past is never actually an actual indicator of future outcomes. Staying abreast of old results on a chart is simply a waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most common and feasibly most successful tactic is the one-3-two-six concept. This process is employed to increase winnings and minimizing risk.

commence 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 six on the table, subtract four so you have two on the 3rd gamble. If you win the third gamble, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you lose on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you break even. A win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
