Losing Odds of 1-3-2-6 Baccarat Progression
One of the best ways of choosing what baccarat progression system to use is to consider the losing odds of the system.
Talking about the losing odds of a system seems negative, but the truth of the matter is that all progression systems have losing odds. None of them can guarantee an all-win play, although some system sellers would claim so. Baccarat will remain a game of chance rather than a game of skill. Progression systems may help some, but losing odds will remain.
One of the popular baccarat progression systems is the 1-3-2-6 betting pattern. This pattern is expressed in betting units. For instance, if our bet unit is $10, our first bet is $10. The next will be $30, and then $20, and last $60. Losses in this system are pegged to 2 units only. This will safely limit our risks in baccarat while at the same time be able to continue with our bet progression.
Let's say that in our first game we bet a unit, which is $10, and win it. But in the second bet, which is $30, we lose. We lose $20. If we win the first and second bets but lose the third bet, we gain $20. Then, if, say, we win the first, second, and third bets but lose the fourth bet, we just end up like we didn't lose or win anything. Thus, we just really lost our first bet, which was $10. With this progression system, the losing odds are minimized and we have a little bit of leverage on our losing streak.
In baccarat, if we prolong the play the house edge will likely have more advantages. But the problem is that most progression systems require prolonged plays to be effective. At least, there ought to be 4 games played for betting patterns to tale effect. Thus, this system is more advantageous than others because it is focused on 4 betting rounds. And one of the keys here is that when winning streaks do appear with the use of this system, we must know when to stop to secure the profit we have made. The principle of this progression is bet minimal for a big potential.
As the bets are made we gradually increase and decrease until at the last part of the bet series we bet 6 units. If we win all bets we are left with a 12-unit profit. The losing odds are marginalized and we end up securing profit winnings.
