Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards which are valued less than 10 are worth face value whereas 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual contenders; they merely represent the two hands to be dealt).

2 hands of 2 cards will then be dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for every hand will be the sum of the two cards, but the initial digit is dropped. For eg, a hand of seven … 5 produces a tally of 2 (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A 3rd card could be given depending on the foll. regulations:

- If the gambler or banker has a value of eight or 9, then both bettors stand.

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of five or lesser. If the player hits, a chart is used in order to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the two scores is the winner. Winning bets on the banker payout 19 to twenty (even odds minus a five percent commission. Commission is monitored and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure to have cash left before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie as a rule pays eight to 1 but on occasion nine to 1. (This is a crazy wager as ties occur lower than 1 every ten hands. Stay away from placing bets on a tie. Even so odds are noticeably better – nine to one vs. 8 to 1)

When done smartly, baccarat provides fairly decent odds, apart from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with every games, Baccarat has some established misunderstandings. One of which is very similar to a roulette myth. The past is in no way a predictor of future events. Monitoring of old results on a chart is for sure a complete waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and almost certainly most successful technique is the one-3-2-six concept. This technique is used to increase winnings and reducing risk.

Begin by wagering 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, subtract four so you have two on the third wager. If you win the third wager, add two to the four on the table for a value of 6 on the fourth wager.

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed by loss on the second causes a loss of two. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you break even. Winning at all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
