Baccarat Banque Policies

Baccarat chemin de fer is gambled on with eight decks in a shoe. Cards under 10 are counted at their printed number and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t actual people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The value for every hand is the sum total of the cards, but the first number is dumped. e.g., a hand of five and 6 has a total of one (5 plus 6 = 11; drop the 1st ‘one’).

A third card might be given using the rules below:

- If the gambler or bank achieves a value of eight or 9, the two players stand.

- If the gambler has less than 5, he takes a card. Players otherwise hold.

- If the player holds, the bank hits on five or lower. If the gambler hits, a guide is used to figure out if the house stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The higher of the two totals wins. Winning wagers on the house pay out 19 to 20 (even money minus a 5% rake. Commission are tracked and paid off once you depart the table so make sure you still have cash around before you head out). Winning bets on the player pays 1 to 1. Winning bets for a tie typically pay eight to one but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a poor bet as a tie occurs less than 1 in every 10 hands. Avoid wagering on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly better for 9 to 1 versus 8:1)

Bet on correctly punto banco provides pretty good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Method

As with all games punto banco has quite a few familiar myths. One of which is similar to a misconception in roulette. The past isn’t an indicator of events yet to happen. Recording previous results on a page of paper is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our stationary desires.

The most familiar and possibly the most favorable scheme is the one-three-two-six method. This tactic is deployed to maximize winnings and minimizing losses.

Begin by wagering 1 chip. If you succeed, add another to the two on the table for a grand total of three dollars on the second bet. Should you win you will now have six on the game table, subtract four so you have two on the third bet. Should you come away with a win on the third wager, put down 2 to the four on the game table for a total of 6 on the 4th wager.

If you do not win on the first wager, you take a hit of 1. A profit on the 1st round followed by a loss on the second brings about a hit of two. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you with a gain of 2. And wins on the 1st 3 with a defeat on the 4th means you balance the books. Succeeding at all 4 rounds gives you with twelve, a gain of 10. This means you can give up the 2nd bet five times for each successful streak of four bets and still break even.
