## Baccarat Regulations and Strategy

Baccarat Banque Regulations

Baccarat is wagered on with 8 decks in a dealing shoe. Cards valued less than ten are valued at their printed number while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not really people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The value for each hand is the sum total of the cards, but the first digit is dumped. For example, a hand of 5 and six has a score of 1 (five plus 6 equals 11; ignore the first ‘1′).

A additional card may be given depending on the following rules:

- If the player or banker achieves a value of 8 or nine, both players stand.

- If the gambler has five or lower, he hits. Players stays otherwise.

- If the player stays, the house hits on 5 or lower. If the gambler takes a card, a table is used to determine if the banker holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The better of the 2 totals wins. Winning bets on the house pay out nineteen to Twenty (equal money less a 5 percent rake. Commission are tracked and paid off once you quit the table so make sure you still have money left just before you leave). Winning wagers on the player pays out at one to one. Winning wagers for tie normally pays eight to one but sometimes nine to one. (This is a poor bet as ties occur less than 1 in every ten hands. Be cautious of wagering on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9:1 vs. eight to one)

Gambled on correctly punto banco gives relatively good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Course of Action

As with all games Baccarat has a handful of accepted myths. One of which is close to a false impression in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of future outcomes. Tracking previous outcomes at a table is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our paper desires.

The most familiar and probably the most favorable course of action is the one-three-two-six technique. This tactic is deployed to build up earnings and minimizing losses.

Begin by betting one chip. If you win, add another to the two on the table for a total of 3 chips on the second bet. If you win you will now have 6 on the table, subtract 4 so you keep 2 on the third wager. If you win the 3rd round, deposit two to the four on the game table for a total of six on the 4th round.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you take a hit of 1. A win on the initial bet followed by a loss on the second creates a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a defeat on the 3rd gives you with a profit of 2. And success on the first three with a loss on the fourth means you break even. Succeeding at all four wagers gives you with 12, a gain of 10. This means you can squander the second wager five times for every successful run of 4 bets and still are even.
