Baccarat Banque Standards

Baccarat chemin de fer is gambled on with 8 decks in a dealing shoe. Cards below ten are valued at their printed number and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not really people; they simply represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the total of the 2 cards, although the 1st number is dropped. For example, a hand of 5 and 6 has a score of 1 (five plus six equals 11; dump the initial ‘1′).

A 3rd card can be given depending on the rules below:

- If the player or bank achieves a total of eight or nine, the two players hold.

- If the player has five or less, he takes a card. Players otherwise hold.

- If the player stands, the bank hits on a total less than five. If the player takes a card, a guide is used to determine if the banker stands or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The greater of the 2 totals wins. Winning wagers on the house payout nineteen to Twenty (equal money minus a 5 percent rake. The Rake is kept track of and paid off once you leave the game so be sure to still have money left over before you depart). Winning wagers on the gambler pays 1:1. Winning wagers for a tie typically pays 8:1 but sometimes 9:1. (This is a bad bet as ties happen lower than 1 in every 10 hands. Avoid gambling on a tie. However odds are astonishingly greater for 9 to 1 vs. 8:1)

Bet on correctly baccarat gives fairly decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has some general misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past is not an indicator of events about to happen. Keeping score of previous outcomes at a table is a poor use of paper and an affront to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and definitely the most acknowledged strategy is the one, three, two, six method. This plan is used to maximize winnings and minimizing risk.

Start by wagering 1 unit. If you succeed, add another to the 2 on the table for a grand total of three units on the second bet. If you succeed you will retain six on the table, take away four so you have two on the third wager. If you come away with a win on the third wager, add two to the 4 on the table for a total of 6 on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the 1st wager, you take a hit of one. A win on the 1st wager followed by a hit on the second creates a loss of two. Wins on the initial two with a loss on the third provides you with a gain of two. And wins on the initial three with a loss on the fourth means you break even. Winning all four wagers leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. This means you can squander the 2nd round five instances for every favorable run of four wagers and still are even.
