Baccarat Rules

Baccarat is bet on with eight decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards valued less than ten are worth face value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. 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 hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The score for every hand is the sum of the 2 cards, although the first digit is dumped. For example, a hand of 5 and six has a total of one (five plus 6 equals 11; drop the first ‘one’).

A 3rd card might be given out based on the rules below:

- If the player or house has a score of 8 or nine, the two players stay.

- If the gambler has less than 5, she hits. Players otherwise hold.

- If the player stands, the house takes a card on five or less. If the player takes a card, a table is employed to see if the house stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The greater of the two totals wins. Winning bets on the banker payout 19:20 (equal cash less a 5 percent rake. The Rake is recorded and cleared out when you depart the table so be sure to still have cash left over before you leave). Winning bets on the player pays one to one. Winning bets for a tie frequently pays out at eight to one but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a poor wager as ties happen lower than 1 in every ten rounds. Avoid putting money on a tie. Although odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 versus eight to one)

Bet on properly baccarat gives generally good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Method

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has a handful of accepted misconceptions. One of which is close to a myth in roulette. The past isn’t an indicator of future outcomes. Keeping score of previous outcomes on a chart is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that gave its life for our stationary desires.

The most established and likely the most acknowledged scheme is the one, three, two, six technique. This method is employed to build up profits and limit risk.

Start by betting one unit. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the game table for a sum of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you win you will retain 6 on the table, pull off 4 so you have two on the 3rd round. If you succeed on the third bet, put down 2 to the 4 on the table for a total of 6 on the 4th round.

If you do not win on the initial wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the initial round followed by a hit on the 2nd brings about a hit of 2. Success on the initial two with a hit on the 3rd gives you with a take of 2. And success on the first three with a hit on the fourth means you are even. Winning at all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you can lose the 2nd round five instances for each favorable run of 4 bets and in the end, are even.
