Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards of a value less than 10 are said to be worth face value while 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they only act as the 2 hands to be given out).

Two hands of 2 cards shall then be given to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The value for any hand shall be the total of the 2 cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. For e.g., a hand of seven and 5 gives a value of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A third card might be played depending on the following guidelines:

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

- If the player has five or lower, he/she hits. bettors stand otherwise.

- If bettor stands, the banker hits of 5 or lesser. If the bettor hits, a chart might be used in order to figure if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores is the winner. Victorious wagers on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even money minus a five percent commission. Commission is kept track of and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure you have funds left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winning bets for tie customarily pay eight to 1 but sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as ties occur less than one every 10 hands. Definitely don’t try placing bets on a tie. Regardless odds are significantly better – nine to 1 vs. 8 to one)

When done effectively, baccarat presents generally good odds, away from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about every games, Baccarat has some established myths. One of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is surely not an indicator of future actions. Monitoring of historic conclusions 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 probably most successful strategy is the one-three-2-six technique. This tactic is deployed to magnify profits and limiting risk.

start by gambling 1 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, subtract four so you have 2 on the third bet. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a total of 6 on the 4th gamble.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd causes a loss of two. Wins on the 1st 2 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. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means that you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
