Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards that are valued less than ten are valued at their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are 0, and A are each applied a value of 1. Bets are placed upon the ‘banker,’ the ‘player’ or for a tie (these aren’t actual persons; they merely depict the 2 hands to be played).

2 hands of two cards shall then be played to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for any hand shall be the total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is dumped. For eg, a hand of 7 as well as 5 results in a tally of two (sevenplus5=twelve; drop the ‘one’).

A third card might be given out depending on the foll. guidelines:

- If the gambler or banker has a total score of eight or nine, both gamblers stand.

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

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

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two scores is the winner. Successful bets on the banker pay out nineteen to 20 (even odds minus a 5% commission. Commission is monitored and cleared out when you leave the table so be 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 out at 8 to one and sometimes nine to 1. (This is a terrible bet as ties occur lower than 1 every 10 hands. Run away from placing bets on a tie. Nevertheless odds are appreciably better – 9 to one vs. eight to 1)

Played correctly, baccarat presents fairly good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with most games, Baccarat has some established misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a roulette misconception. The past is in no way a predictor of future actions. Keeping track of historic results on a chart is definitely a complete waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life to be used as our stationary.

The most popular and feasibly most successful technique is the 1-three-two-six method. This method is used to maximize earnings and minimizing risk.

Begin by gambling one 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, take away four so you have 2 on the 3rd bet. If you win the 3rd gamble, add two to the four on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th wager.

If you lose on the first bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet 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 3 with a loss on the fourth mean you break even. Arriving at a win on all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. In other words you can get beaten the second bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
