Baccarat Policies

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards. Cards valued less than ten are said to be at face value whereas 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 purely appear as the two hands to be given out).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given out to the ‘banker’ … ‘player’. The score for any hand shall be the total of the 2 cards, but the initial digit is discarded. For eg, a hand of seven and 5 gives a total of two (7plus5=twelve; drop the ‘1′).

A 3rd card could be given out depending on the foll. practices:

- If the bettor or banker has a value of eight or 9, both gamblers stand.

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

- If gambler stands, the banker hits of 5 or lower. If the player hits, a chart might be used to ascertain if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two scores will be the winner. Winning bets on the banker pay at 19 to twenty (even money less a five percent commission. Commission is tracked and moved out when you leave the table so make sure you have cash remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to 1. Winning bets for tie customarily pays 8 to one but sometimes 9 to one. (This is a bad bet as ties will occur lower than one every ten hands. Avoid putting money on a tie. Regardless odds are considerably better – nine to one vs. 8 to one)

Played smartly, baccarat provides pretty good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with most games, Baccarat has some well-known misconceptions. One of which is very similar to a misconception of roulette. The past is not a predictor of future outcomes. Tracking of last results on a chart is undoubtedly a total waste of paper … an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most commonly used and probably most successful technique is the 1-three-two-six technique. This technique is deployed to boost wins and limiting risk.

commence by wagering one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 on the 2nd bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, subtract 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd bet. If you win the third wager, add 2 to the four on the table for a sum of 6 on the fourth wager.

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you suck up a loss of 1. A win on the first bet quickly followed by loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of two. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the third gives you a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th mean you breakeven. Coming away with a win on all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. In other words you can get beaten the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and still break even.
