Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards of a value less than ten are counted at their printed value while at the same time ten, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each equal to 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual gamblers; they merely depict the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given out to the ‘banker’ as well as ‘player’. The total for any hand is the total of the two cards, but the initial digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of 7 as well as 5 results in a value of 2 (sevenplus5=12; drop the ‘one’).

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

- If the bettor or banker has a value of 8 or nine, each players stand.

- If the gambler has five or less, he/she hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 scores is the winner. Successful bets on the banker pay out 19 to twenty (even money minus a five % commission. Commission is kept track of and paid out when you leave the table so make sure to have money remaining before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winning bets for tie generally pays 8 to 1 and on occasion nine to 1. (This is an awful gamble as ties will happen less than 1 every ten hands. Run away from betting on a tie. Even so odds are exceedingly better – nine to one versus 8 to one)

Played effectively, baccarat presents fairly good odds, apart from the tie wager obviously.

Baccarat Strategy

As with every games, Baccarat has some well-known myths. One of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is not an actual indicator of future events. Tracking of prior outcomes on a chart is definitely a waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most established and feasibly most successful strategy is the one-3-2-six concept. This technique is used to increase winnings and lowering risk.

Begin by wagering 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of three on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have six on the table, subtract 4 so you have two on the third wager. If you win the third gamble, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a grand total of six on the fourth bet.

If you lose on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed up 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 4th mean you breakeven. Coming out on top on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words you can lose the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of 4 bets and still break even.
