Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards of a value less than 10 are counted at their printed value and on the other hand 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 purely appear as the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards shall then be dealt to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for every hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of 7 as well as five produces a score of 2 (7plusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A third card may be dealt depending on the foll. practices:

- If the player or banker has a tally of 8 or nine, each players stand.

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the bettor hits, a chart shall be used in order to ascertain if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores is the winner. Victorious stakes on the banker pay at 19 to 20 (even money minus a five percent commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so make sure that you have $$$$$ remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie usually pays out at eight to 1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a bad gamble as ties will happen lower than 1 every ten hands. Avoid placing bets on a tie. Regardless odds are radically better – 9 to one vs. eight to 1)

Played smartly, baccarat presents fairly decent odds, aside from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some well-known false impressions. 1 of which is quite similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way an actual indicator of future results. Monitoring of previous results on a chart is simply a waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and feasibly most successful tactic is the one-three-two-6 method. This scheme is deployed to accentuate winnings and controlling risk.

commence by wagering one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, subtract four so you have 2 on the third gamble. If you win the third gamble, add two to the 4 on the table for a sum of six on the fourth bet.

If you lose on the first bet, you take a loss of one. A win on the first 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 2. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Arriving at a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. In other words that you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
