Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued under ten are said to be at their printed value while ten, 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 contenders; they strictly represent the 2 hands to be played).

Two hands of 2 cards are then played to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for every hand will be the sum of the two cards, but the initial digit is discarded. For example, a hand of seven as well as five produces a score of two (sevenplusfive=12; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card might be played depending on the foll. standards:

- If the player or banker has a tally of eight or nine, both bettors stand.

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

- If player stands, the banker hits of five or lower. If the gambler hits, a chart shall be used to ascertain if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores is the winner. Winning stakes on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even odds less a five percent commission. Commission is monitored and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure to have funds left before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie by and large pays out at 8 to 1 but on occasion 9 to one. (This is a bad bet as ties happen lower than one every ten hands. Run away from laying money on a tie. Regardless odds are especially better – nine to 1 vs. eight to one)

Played effectively, baccarat offers fairly decent odds, aside from the tie wager ofcourse.

Baccarat Strategy

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some established myths. 1 of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is never actually a predictor of future results. Keeping track of previous results on a chart is definitely a complete waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and almost certainly most successful method is the one-three-two-six technique. This scheme is deployed to magnify wins and limiting risk.

Begin by wagering 1 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 6 on the table, remove four so you have two on the third bet. If you win the 3rd wager, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a total of 6 on the fourth wager.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet quickly followed by loss on the second brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you come out even. Arriving at a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. Therefore that you can fail to win the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
