Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards of a value less than ten are give a value of their printed number and on the other hand 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they simply appear as the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The score for any hand will be the sum of the 2 cards, but the first digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of seven … five will have a total score of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card may be played depending on the foll. protocols:

- If the player or banker has a value of 8 or nine, then both players stand.

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the gambler hits, a chart shall be used in order to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores is the winner. Victorious stakes on the banker pay nineteen to 20 (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so ensure that you have $$$$$ left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay 1 to 1. Winner bets for tie normally pay eight to one and on occasion nine to 1. (This is a bad gamble as ties happen less than 1 every ten hands. Run away from laying money on a tie. Even so odds are exceedingly better – 9 to 1 versus eight to one)

When done effectively, baccarat presents fairly decent odds, away from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with most games, Baccarat has some common false impressions. One of which is close to a misconception of roulette. The past is never actually an indicator of future actions. Tracking of historic results on a chart is a total waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and almost certainly most successful strategy is the 1-three-two-6 scheme. This plan is employed to boost successes and limiting risk.

commence by gambling 1 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 six on the table, remove four so you have two on the 3rd bet. If you win the third gamble, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum 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 1st bet followed by loss on the second will create a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. 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 ten. In other words that you can lose the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
