# Should you use the 1-3-2-6 Baccarat Strategy?

The 1 3 2 6 Baccarat system is quite simple and straightforward to use. It is designed for making profit from short winning streaks, limiting built in loss. As name depicts, your sequence of betting is 1 3 2 6.

If you lose at any place in the sequence, then you will go to the beginning and start again. If you win all your four bets, then you make a profit of 12 betting units. This system doesn’t force you to place large bets and chase your losses, unlike some other Baccarat systems.

You will first bet 1 betting unit and if that bet is lost, your next bet will be 1 unit again. When you win the first bet, your next betting unit will be 3. Should you lose, then you will need to go back to the beginning at 1 betting unit. If betting unit 3 wins, then your next will be 2 betting units and if you lose this, you will need to go back to the start. If you win, then you will need to go to the final bet at 6 units. Even if you win or lose the fourth betting unit, you need to start another new sequence.

How does 1-3-2-6 work?

If you lose the first hand, your loss is 1 unit. If you win the first, but lose the second, your loss is 2 units. If you win the first and second, but lose the third, your profit is 2 units. If you win the first three units, but lose the fourth, you will be even. If you win all four betting units, your profit is 12 units. Like most other Baccarat systems, this works on the proposition of an even bet, so you should bet on the player and not the banker.

The idea behind this gambling method is that there are always streaks of wins and losses. Sometimes there are many losing streaks and rarely will you see an incredible winning streak. A vast majority will be in between – three or four runs or losses in a row. When you get four a row, this strategy will make the most of the small runs and you will see a good profit, without risking too much of your money.

Here are the pros and cons of the 1 3 2 6 strategy.

Pros
The main advantage in this strategy is that it restricts your losses. Since you are not chasing your losses, you will not bet huge sums of money just to win back some of your lost money.

Cons
There are no major disadvantages with this method, other than the fact that you are giving up on any chance of a very big win. However, you are likely to make slow and steady gains.
