Baccarat Chemin de Fer Principles

Baccarat banque is gambled on with eight decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards below ten are counted at their printed value and with Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they simply represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand is the sum total of the two cards, although the 1st digit is discarded. e.g., a hand of five and six has a total of 1 (five plus 6 equals 11; ditch the initial ‘one’).

A third card can be given out using the following rules:

- If the player or house has a score of 8 or 9, the two players stay.

- If the gambler has five or less, she takes a card. Players otherwise stand.

- If the gambler stands, the banker takes a card on a total lower than 5. If the player takes a card, a guide is employed to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The bigger of the 2 hands wins. Winning wagers on the banker payout 19:20 (even payout less a five percent commission. The Rake is kept track of and cleared out when you depart the game so make sure you still have funds around just before you depart). Winning bets on the gambler pays out at one to one. Winning wagers for tie usually pay 8:1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a awful bet as a tie occurs less than 1 in every 10 hands. Avoid gambling on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly better for 9:1 versus 8:1)

Played correctly punto banco offers pretty decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games Baccarat has quite a few accepted misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past isn’t a prophecy of future actions. Keeping score of past results on a sheet of paper is a poor use of paper and an affront to the tree that was cut down for our paper desires.

The most established and probably the most favorable plan is the one-three-two-six method. This technique is employed to maximize profits and minimizing risk.

Start by placing 1 chip. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the table for a sum total of three units on the second bet. If you succeed you will now have 6 on the game table, pull off 4 so you have 2 on the third wager. Should you succeed on the third wager, deposit two on the 4 on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you do not win on the first bet, you take a hit of 1. A win on the first wager followed by a hit on the second causes a hit of 2. Wins on the initial 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you with a take of two. And wins on the 1st 3 with a defeat on the fourth means you balance the books. Winning all 4 rounds leaves you with twelve, a take of 10. This means you are able to not win on the second bet 5 times for each successful streak of 4 rounds and in the end, balance the books.
