sing right strategy for some casino games can be very advantageous to
the player. The best example is a game of blackjack, of course. When
you know the basic strategy and understand what is card counting, you
can even override the negative expectation and have an edge over the
casino about 1%!

Card counting is not for Video Poker, but still you can be in very
good position when you possess the proper Video Poker strategy.

Unfortunately, there is no strategy that works for Baccarat as the
player has not many options - rules are automatic and after you have
made a bet you can only hope on your luck. Any baccarat system that is
based on the previous hands (and the bets you have made, if any, on
those hands) is useless and should be completely disregarded.
But as for any other casino game there is always room for improvement
and if you want to establish an effective baccarat strategy there is a
few things to consider

don't bet on "tie"
Playing Baccarat you have only a choice of three bets, but it does not
mean you don't have any options at all.

Betting on the Player Hand - the house edge is 1.29%.
Betting on the Bank Hand - the house edge is 1.01%.
Betting on a Tie Hand - the house edge is 15.75%.
The house edge numbers mean that Banker hand wins more often in the
long run. Even after paying a 5% commission it is still a slightly
better proposition than betting on "Player hand". So, there is only
one good bet to make - Bank Hand.

As for betting on Tie hand the casino will pay nine for one odds.
Unfortunately, the casino advantage on this bet is over 15%. So, don't
bet on "Tie".

Well, it may be a very boring when you have only one good bet to make,
but still the game of baccarat has one of the best odds in casino if
you know this.

number of decks and commission
As shown on the Baccarat Odds, you can improve your chances by
choosing the right game to play: you should look for the casino that
offers the lower number of decks played and lower commission.

The best choice is the 6 deck card game with 4 percent commission on
the winning "Banker" hand. As for the single deck, you can find it
only at some online casinos which use Microgaming software.

money management
Knowing only the best bet for Baccarat game will not make a good
strategy. The next decision is how much to bet.

It is not a secret that many players risks more than they can afford
to loose when they put on the table their money - a really good way to
go completely broke. But following some simple rules can help you to
increase your chances to win:.

Even before you sit down at the baccarat table decide how much you are
going to loose.
Divide up your money and control how much you bet at each round.
One of the best ways to manage your money during the play is to pocket
a certain percentage of your winnings each time you win or to pocket
it all.
For example you have $500 to wager. Start the game betting the table
limit (let's say $25). Put the winnings aside, and at the end of the
25ths round you'll only have played $500 even, which is exactly what
you intended to spend and any winnings are yours to keep.

This simple strategy gives you chance to enjoy the thrill of gambling
for a longer period of time without going broke.

And one more advice: Never underestimate luck, it is the biggest
factor when you play any game of chance - if you leave the table
having more dollars in your pocket than you started (even if it is
only $25) you win!

The sad thing about any gambling strategy is the discipline. Remember,
if you do not follow your chosen strategy, you do not have strategy at

So, bet on the Banker hand, stick to the money management and let the
luck be on you side!

  1. While many learned professors have abandoned hope of ever discovering the truth behind card counting, I for one feel that it is still a worthy cause for examination. Underestimate card counting at your peril. Given that its influence pervades our society, it is impossible to overestimate its impact on modern thought. It is an unfortunate consequence of our civilizations history that card counting is rarely given rational consideration by so called 'babies', many of whom fail to comprehend the full scope of card counting. Hold onto your hats as we begin a journey into card counting.
