Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards that are valued less than 10 are said to be at face value and on the other hand ten, 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 simply symbolize the 2 hands to be given out).

2 hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The total for any hand is the grand total of the two cards, but the initial digit is removed. For eg, a hand of 7 and 5 produces a total score of two (7plusfive=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A third card could be given out depending on the foll. practices:

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

- If the bettor has 5 or lower, he hits. Players stand otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 scores will be the winner. Successful stakes on the banker pay 19 to twenty (even odds less a 5% commission. Commission is kept track of and paid out when you leave the table so ensure that you have money still before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winner bets for tie usually pays out at 8 to one and sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a crazy gamble as ties will occur less than one every ten hands. Definitely don’t try wagering on a tie. However odds are far better – nine to one vs. 8 to 1)

Played smartly, baccarat presents fairly decent odds, away from the tie bet ofcourse.

Baccarat Tactics

As with all games, Baccarat has some established myths. 1 of which is very similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way a predictor of future results. Monitoring of prior results on a chart is a complete waste of paper and a slap in the face for the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and possibly most successful technique is the 1-3-2-six concept. This method is deployed to magnify payout and limiting risk.

commence by gambling one unit. If you win, add 1 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, remove 4 so you have two on the 3rd bet. If you win the 3rd wager, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a sum of six on the 4th wager.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed by loss on the second creates a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth mean you break even. Attaining a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. In other words you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
