Baccarat Codes

Baccarat banque is bet on with 8 decks in a dealing shoe. Cards under 10 are counted at their printed value and with Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand is the sum of the cards, although the first number is dropped. e.g., a hand of five and six has a score of 1 (five plus six = eleven; drop the initial ‘one’).

A 3rd card could be given out using the following rules:

- If the gambler or banker gets a value of eight or 9, both players hold.

- If the gambler has 5 or less, she takes a card. Players otherwise stand.

- If the gambler stands, the bank takes a card on a total lower than 5. If the gambler takes a card, a guide is employed to decide if the banker stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores wins. Winning wagers on the house payout 19:20 (even payout less a 5% rake. The Rake is recorded and cleared out when you leave the table so make sure you have money around before you quit). Winning wagers on the gambler pays out at one to one. Winning wagers for tie typically pays eight to one but sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a poor wager as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every 10 hands. Be cautious of betting on a tie. However odds are substantially better for nine to one vs. eight to one)

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Course of Action

As with all games Baccarat has a few common misunderstandings. One of which is close to a absurdity in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of future actions. Recording previous results on a page of paper is a poor use of paper and a snub to the tree that gave its life for our stationary desires.

The most familiar and almost certainly the most accomplished method is the one-three-two-six method. This technique is employed to build up profits and limit risk.

Begin by wagering one unit. If you succeed, add one more to the 2 on the game table for a sum of 3 units on the second bet. If you win you will now have 6 on the game table, subtract 4 so you are left with 2 on the third bet. Should you come away with a win on the 3rd round, deposit 2 to the four on the game table for a grand total of six on the 4th bet.

Should you don’t win on the initial bet, you take a hit of 1. A win on the first bet followed by a loss on the 2nd causes a hit of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a hit on the third gives you with a take of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th means you break even. Winning at all 4 bets gives you with 12, a take of 10. This means you are able to lose the 2nd round 5 times for each successful run of 4 wagers and in the end, balance the books.
