Baccarat Procedures

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued less than 10 are of their printed value and on the other hand 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 strictly symbolize the 2 hands to be given out).

2 hands of two cards shall then be given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand shall be the sum total of the 2 cards, but the first digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of seven as well as 5 has a total of 2 (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

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

- If the bettor or banker has a value of 8 or 9, both bettors stand.

- If the player has 5 or less, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or less. If the gambler hits, a chart shall be used in order to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the two scores is the winner. Successful bets on the banker pay at nineteen to 20 (even odds minus a five % commission. Commission is followed closely and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure that you have dollars left over before you leave). Bets on the player that end up winning pay one to one. Winner bets for tie customarily pay out eight to 1 but on occasion nine to 1. (This is an awful wager as ties occur less than one every 10 hands. Run away from placing bets on a tie. Even so odds are vastly better – nine to 1 vs. 8 to one)

When played accurately, baccarat offers relatively good odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Tactics

As with just about all games, Baccarat has some common false impressions. 1 of which is quite similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is in no way an actual indicator of future actions. Tracking of prior outcomes 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 common and probably most successful method is the one-three-two-6 method. This plan is used to build up payouts and controlling risk.

Begin by gambling 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 six on the table, remove 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd gamble. If you win the third gamble, add two to the four on the table for a total of six on the fourth gamble.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you suck up 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 first two 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 breakeven. Winning at all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. This means that you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
