Baccarat Banque Policies

Baccarat chemin de fer is gambled on with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards valued less than ten are worth face value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is one. Wagers are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand is the total of the 2 cards, although the first digit is discarded. e.g., a hand of 5 and six has a score of 1 (five plus six equals eleven; dump the first ‘1′).

A 3rd card can be dealt based on the rules below:

- If the gambler or banker achieves a score of 8 or 9, both players hold.

- If the player has less than five, he takes a card. Players stands otherwise.

- If the gambler holds, the bank takes a card on five or less. If the gambler hits, a table is employed to determine if the bank holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The larger of the 2 hands wins. Winning wagers on the bank payout 19:20 (even money minus a 5 percent rake. The Rake is recorded and cleared out once you depart the table so be sure to have cash remaining before you depart). Winning wagers on the player pays out at one to one. Winning bets for a tie usually pay 8:1 but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as ties occur less than 1 in every 10 hands. Avoid gambling on a tie. Although odds are substantially greater for 9 to 1 versus 8 to 1)

Wagered on properly baccarat chemin de fer offers pretty decent odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games punto banco has a few accepted myths. One of which is similar to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of future actions. Tracking previous results on a page of paper is a waste of paper and an affront to the tree that was cut down for our paper desires.

The most common and almost certainly the most successful strategy is the one, three, two, six tactic. This method is used to maximize winnings and limit losses.

Start by betting one dollar. If you succeed, add one more to the 2 on the game table for a sum total of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you win you will now have 6 on the table, remove 4 so you have two on the third wager. Should you come away with a win on the 3rd wager, add 2 on the four on the game table for a grand total of 6 on the fourth wager.

Should you do not win on the 1st wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the first wager followed by a hit on the second brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a hit on the 3rd provides you with a take of two. And wins on the initial 3 with a defeat on the 4th means you break even. Winning at all 4 wagers leaves you with 12, a gain of ten. This means you can squander the 2nd round 5 times for each favorable streak of four rounds and still balance the books.
