As the game is guided through a set of rules, it’s very unlikely that the hits go over in Baccarat. If there is a tie, the hand is simply passed and the bets are returned to the players and the hand is dealt again.
Hits for the player hand – The conditions which call for a draw of third card are the hands stand if they read 8 or 9. In case if the player hand reads 5 or less, the player card will be hit first.
Hits for the banker hand –The banker takes hit on hands if cards dealt value is 5 or less, the player hand stands if the hand values 6 or high. The players hand hits depending on value of the cards and bankers score.
What happens when player draws third card –
If the players third card is 2 or 3, banker stays with 5-7 and draws if he has 0-4
If the players third card is 4 or 5, banker stays with 6-7 and draws if he has 0-5
If the players third card is 6 or 7, banker stays with 7 and draws if he has 0-6
If the players third card is 8, banker stays with 3-7 and draws if he has 0-3
If the players third card is 9, 10, Ace or face card, banker stays with 4-7 and draws if he has 0-3
As per these rules the banker can choose to draw extra cards. The cards are controlled by the banker or the dealer, the only thing for you to decide is to bet on the player hand or the banker hand.
Bet smart – What are the odds?
Baccarat is more like tossing coins. You go in blind and bet your money on the player or the banker even before the cards are dealt. It is unpredictable and that’s what makes the game exciting. You cannot manipulate the cards as it’s a pure game of chance. In most cases the odds are in favor of the house.
Track your wins – Keep a track of your winning hands, study the pattern and plan your next move. Make a note of who you bet on, and mark when you win. Stick with the pattern that suits you. Take in the game, get familiar with the board and bet wisely. Keep changing the number of units you bet. Start by betting slow and then work your way up.
Be consistent – Be consistent with your bets. If you bet on player for instance and it is paying off, that is if the player is winning, do not switch over to betting on banker. Keep the check on pattern and stay with the winning party. Be consistent and if the pattern switches, you make a switch too in your strategy. Do not make hasty decisions, stick with the pattern. Be ready to spend lot of time and money as Baccarat is a game for people who are in it for long haul.
Banker is the best bet – Bet on banker until the banker loses. It is best to stick with the banker to be safe at the beginning. Later on when you study the pattern you can form your strategy and bet accordingly.
