Baccarat Strategy - Labouchere system

Top 3 online casinos with the largest number of slot machines

The player who uses this system adjusts his bet to the outcome of the previous hand. The bet is raised after losses and decreased after wins, but by a more complicated system than used in the Martingale.

First you have to choose a sequence of numbers

For example, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Each number shows the amount in units or chips to bet. Then you make a bet that is the sum of the first and last numbers (in this example, 1+6 = 7). If this hand wins, 1 and 7 are taken away and the next bet is again the sum of the first and last numbers, this time 2+5 = 7. If the hand (1+6) loses, the whole lost bet is added to the end of the sequence (you add 7 to 1,2,3,4,5,6 and you get 1,2,3,4,5,6,7) and then make the next bet that is 8 (1+7). When the numbers are over, this series ends.

Sequence = 1 2 3 4 5 6
7 ⇒ win ⇒ 7 ⇒ win ⇒ 7 ⇒ lose ⇒ 10
Sequence = 347

Here is the table how the bet varies after each losing and winning bet. Let’s take the sequence: 1-2-2-3-2, as an example:

Sequence Bet Result NetGain
1-2-2-3-2 3 lost -3
1-2-2-3-2-3 4 lost -7
1-2-2-3-2-3-4 5 lost -12
1-2-2-3-2-3-4-5 6 won -6
2-2-3-2-3-4 6 lost -12
2-3-2-3-4-6 8 won -4
3-2-3-4 7 lost -11
3-2-3-4-7 10 won -1
2-3-4 6 won +5

The overall result is a slow but continuous increase in the bets in a series of hands will in the end leave you ahead, when the series goes to its conclusion.

You must finish each series, and you may be locked in a very long series with large losses before you win. You can also reach the table limit before you win. This system needs considerable concentration.
