Baccarat Protocols

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards which are of a value less than 10 are said to be worth their printed value while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each given a value of 1. Bets 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 dealt).

2 hands of 2 cards will now be given to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for every hand shall be the grand total of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is removed. For example, a hand of seven as well as five results in a value of two (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘one’).

A third card might be dealt depending on the following practices:

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

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or less. If the player hits, a chart is used to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores wins. Successful bets on the banker pay nineteen to 20 (even money minus a five percent commission. Commission is followed closely and cleared out when you leave the table so ensure you have dollars remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie by and large pay out 8 to 1 and sometimes nine to 1. (This is a bad gamble as ties occur lower than 1 every ten hands. Avoid wagering on a tie. However odds are somewhat better – nine to 1 versus eight to one)

Played accurately, baccarat presents relatively decent odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with most games, Baccarat has some well-known misunderstandings. One of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way a predictor of future events. Monitoring of historic outcomes on a chart is simply a waste of paper … a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most accepted and almost certainly most successful tactic is the 1-three-two-six technique. This schema is deployed to boost successes and limiting risk.

Begin by betting one unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, remove four so you have 2 on the 3rd gamble. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a sum total of six on the fourth wager.

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by loss on the 2nd causes a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. In other words you can fail to win the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
