Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards with less than a value of 10 are counted at face value and on the other hand 10, 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 gamblers; they strictly depict the two hands to be dealt).

2 hands of 2 cards shall then be given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The value for each hand is the total of the 2 cards, but the first digit is removed. For eg, a hand of 7 … 5 will have a tally of two (sevenplus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

A third card can be given out depending on the foll. codes:

- If the bettor or banker has a total score of 8 or nine, each players stand.

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

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the player hits, a chart is used to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Successful bets on the banker pay out nineteen to twenty (even money minus a 5 percent commission. Commission is kept track of and moved out when you leave the table so make sure that you have funds remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to one. Winning bets for tie by and large pay out eight to 1 and on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a terrible wager as ties happen less than 1 every ten hands. Avoid wagering on a tie. Nevertheless odds are far better – nine to 1 versus eight to 1)

Played properly, baccarat provides relatively good odds, apart from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some well-known myths. One of which is quite similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way a predictor of future events. Monitoring of prior conclusions on a chart is for sure a complete waste of paper as well as a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most commonly used and almost certainly most successful technique is the one-3-two-six concept. This technique is used to pump up payouts and reducing risk.

Begin by gambling one unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of three on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, take away four so you have two on the third gamble. If you win the 3rd wager, add 2 to the four on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th wager.

If you lose on the initial wager, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the second will create a loss of two. 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 fourth mean you break even. Accomplishing a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. Thus you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
