Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards which are valued less than 10 are counted at their printed value meanwhile 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 represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards will then be given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The value for any hand shall be the grand total of the two cards, but the initial digit is discarded. For example, a hand of seven and 5 has a tally of 2 (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card could be dealt depending on the following rules:

- If the player or banker has a total of eight or 9, the two players stand.

- If the player has 5 or less, he/she hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart will be used to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores wins. Victorious wagers on the banker pay 19 to twenty (even odds less a five percent commission. Commission is followed closely and cleared out when you leave the table so ensure that you have dollars remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winning bets for tie typically pay 8 to 1 but sometimes nine to 1. (This is a terrible gamble as ties will happen lower than 1 every ten hands. Avoid wagering on a tie. Nevertheless odds are certainly better – nine to one versus 8 to 1)

When done accurately, baccarat provides fairly decent odds, away from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some established misconceptions. 1 of which is very similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is never actually an indicator of future events. Tracking of previous results on a chart is for sure a total waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and probably most successful method is the one-three-two-6 concept. This technique is employed to boost successes and controlling risk.

commence by betting 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, take away four so you have two on the third wager. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a value of six on the 4th gamble.

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed up by loss on the second brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 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 breakeven. A win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means that you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
