Card-counting at Baccarat is not only one wrong strategy that is mentioned in a lot of books about Baccarat systems. More often card counting is said in connection with Blackjack, where this system can be rather efficient if you use it and choose the right casino properly. From the first sight why isn’t card counting efficient, while playing Baccarat? It happens so, because at Baccarat all played-out cards return into the pack, before enough number of cards has been played out. And that’s why there are always difficulties in respect of card-counting. Besides, according to rules of Baccarat unlike Blackjack a player is not allowed to change bets in the middle of the game. At Blackjack such things can be permitted in some special cases and a player can increase a bet, if the counting is changing. Card-counting at Baccarat very seldom can give advantages, but as a result such efforts don’t bring success.
Some players think that Baccarat is the improved variant of coin lot. Such simplified impression can’t prevent players from using Martingale system. The logical explanation is as follows: at last you must win sooner or later and that’s why bet doubling can help to compensate the previous losses. And in fact it is a very good system that works at Roulette and Baccarat. That’s why casinos create new rules that restrict hands of players. And therefore very often this Martingale system can lead a player to a long session of losses.
But if these all strategies as card-counting, learning combinations by heart, Martingale are useless at Baccarat, is there any adequate Baccarat strategy? The experience and mathematical calculations show that sometimes there are cases when a player has an advantage, for example, if a player always bet on the Banker. But these cases are rather rare.
