## Baccarat Chemin de Fer Rules and Method

Punto Banco Standards

Punto banco is played with eight decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards valued less than 10 are worth face value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is 1. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not really people; they simply represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the sum total of the cards, although the first digit is discarded. e.g., a hand of 5 and six has a score of 1 (five plus 6 = 11; ignore the 1st ‘one’).

A third card could be given using the following rules:

- If the player or banker achieves a value of eight or 9, the two players hold.

- If the gambler has 5 or less, she hits. Players stands otherwise.

- If the player stands, the banker hits on a total less than five. If the gambler takes a card, a table is employed to decide if the house stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The larger of the 2 totals wins. Winning bets on the banker pay out 19:20 (even money less a 5 percent rake. The Rake is recorded and cleared out once you leave the table so make sure you have funds left over before you leave). Winning wagers on the gambler pay one to one. Winning bets for tie usually pays out at eight to one but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a poor wager as a tie occurs less than one in every 10 hands. Avoid wagering on a tie. However odds are astonishingly greater for 9 to 1 versus 8 to 1)

Gambled on properly baccarat provides pretty decent odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Course of Action

As with all games baccarat banque has some familiar myths. One of which is similar to a misconception in roulette. The past isn’t a prophecy of events about to happen. Recording past results at a table is a poor use of paper and an affront to the tree that was cut down for our stationary needs.

The most common and possibly the most accomplished strategy is the 1-3-2-6 method. This method is employed to build up earnings and minimizing risk.

Start by betting one dollar. If you succeed, add another to the 2 on the game table for a total of 3 chips on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the game table, take away 4 so you have two on the 3rd bet. Should you win the third wager, add 2 to the four on the table for a sum total of 6 on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the initial round, you take a loss of one. A profit on the 1st round followed by a hit on the second brings about a hit of 2. Success on the 1st two with a hit on the third gives you with a take of 2. And success on the initial 3 with a hit on the fourth means you are even. Succeeding at all four bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you are able to not win on the 2nd wager 5 instances for every successful streak of 4 rounds and still balance the books.
