Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards. Cards which are valued under ten are counted at face value while ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they merely appear as the two hands to be given out).

Two hands of two cards shall then be given out to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for each hand will be the sum of the two cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of seven as well as 5 gives a score of 2 (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card can be given out depending on the following guidelines:

- If the gambler or banker has a total score of eight or nine, then both players stand.

- If the bettor has five or less, he/she hits. gamblers stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the player hits, a chart might be used in order to judge if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Successful stakes on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even money less a five % commission. Commission is monitored and paid out when you leave the table so ensure you have funds left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie generally pay out eight to one and sometimes 9 to 1. (This is an awful wager as ties happen less than 1 every ten hands. Definitely don’t try wagering on a tie. However odds are exceedingly better – 9 to one vs. eight to one)

When done properly, baccarat presents relatively good odds, aside from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some common myths. One of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is surely not a predictor of future happenings. Monitoring of prior conclusions on a chart is a waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and possibly most successful tactic is the one-3-2-6 scheme. This plan is used to accentuate payouts and limiting risk.

Begin by gambling 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, remove four so you have 2 on the 3rd bet. If you win the 3rd gamble, add 2 to the four on the table for a total of six on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up by loss on the second will create a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 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 break even. Winning all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
