Baccarat Chemin de Fer Policies

Baccarat chemin de fer is played with eight decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards below ten are counted at their printed value while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is 1. Bets are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not really people; they simply represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the sum total of the cards, however the beginning number is ignored. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a value of 1 (5 plus 6 equals 11; ignore the 1st ‘1′).

A 3rd card might be dealt using the following rules:

- If the player or bank achieves a total of 8 or nine, the two players stand.

- If the player has five or less, she takes a card. Players stands otherwise.

- If the player stays, the banker takes a card on a value less than five. If the gambler takes a card, a chart is employed to figure out if the house stays or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores wins. Winning bets on the bank payout 19:20 (equal money minus a 5% rake. The Rake is recorded and cleared out when you depart the table so be sure to still have funds left before you depart). Winning wagers on the player pays out at one to one. Winning wagers for a tie typically pay 8:1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is a bad wager as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every 10 hands. Be cautious of gambling on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly better for 9:1 versus 8 to 1)

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

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games baccarat banque has quite a few general myths. One of which is close to a false impression in roulette. The past isn’t a fore-teller of future actions. Recording past results at a table is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our paper desires.

The most established and possibly the most accomplished plan is the 1-3-2-6 plan. This technique is used to pump up earnings and limit risk.

Start by wagering 1 unit. If you succeed, add another to the two on the table for a sum total of 3 units on the second bet. Should you succeed you will now have six on the game table, take away four so you are left with 2 on the third bet. Should you succeed on the 3rd bet, put down two on the four on the table for a grand total of six on the 4th round.

If you don’t win on the first round, you take a hit of one. A profit on the first round followed by a hit on the 2nd causes a hit of two. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the third gives you with a take of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th means you experience no loss. Succeeding at all 4 bets gives you with 12, a take of 10. This means you are able to give up the second round 5 times for each successful run of 4 bets and still experience no loss.
