Baccarat Principles

Baccarat banque is enjoyed with eight decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards valued less than ten are counted at their printed value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not really people; they simply represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The value for each hand is the sum of the 2 cards, however the first digit is ignored. For example, a hand of five and six has a value of one (five plus 6 equals eleven; dump the initial ‘one’).

A 3rd card can be given out based on the following rules:

- If the gambler or bank gets a value of 8 or 9, both players hold.

- If the player has 5 or lower, she takes a card. Players stays otherwise.

- If the player stays, the banker takes a card on a total lower than 5. If the player takes a card, a guide is used to decide if the house holds or hits.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The higher of the two hands wins. Winning wagers on the bank payout 19:20 (even payout minus a 5% commission. The Rake is kept track of and paid off when you quit the game so make sure you still have cash remaining just before you depart). Winning bets on the player pays out at 1 to 1. Winning wagers for tie normally pays eight to one but occasionally nine to one. (This is a awful bet as ties happen less than one in every ten hands. Be cautious of gambling on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 vs. 8:1)

Wagered on correctly baccarat provides generally good odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Banque Scheme

As with all games Baccarat has a few established misconceptions. One of which is similar to a misconception in roulette. The past isn’t a harbinger of future events. Keeping track of past results at a table is a poor use of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

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

Begin by placing 1 dollar. If you succeed, add another 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 six on the table, pull off 4 so you are left with two on the 3rd round. If you succeed on the third round, add two to the four on the table for a total of six on the 4th round.

Should you lose on the initial round, you take a loss of 1. A win on the initial bet followed by a loss on the second causes a hit of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you with a profit of 2. And success on the first three with a hit on the fourth means you are even. Winning at all 4 bets gives you with twelve, a gain of ten. This means you can squander the 2nd bet five times for every favorable run of four bets and still balance the books.
