## Baccarat Policies and Strategy

Baccarat Banque Codes

Baccarat chemin de fer is enjoyed with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards below 10 are valued at their printed value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is one. Wagers are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the 1st number is ignored. For instance, a hand of 5 and six has a total of 1 (five plus six equals eleven; ignore the initial ‘one’).

A additional card will be given using the following rules:

- If the player or banker gets a total of 8 or nine, the two players hold.

- If the gambler has less than five, he hits. Players holds otherwise.

- If the gambler stands, the bank takes a card on a value less than 5. If the gambler hits, a guide is employed to determine if the house holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the two scores wins. Winning bets on the bank payout nineteen to Twenty (equal money less a 5 percent rake. The Rake is tracked and cleared out when you quit the game so be sure to have funds left before you head out). Winning bets on the gambler pays 1:1. Winning bets for a tie normally pays out at 8 to 1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is a awful bet as a tie occurs lower than one in every ten hands. Be wary of betting on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for 9 to 1 versus 8 to 1)

Gambled on properly baccarat banque offers fairly decent odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Method

As with all games punto banco has some common myths. One of which is the same as a myth in roulette. The past is not an indicator of future actions. Keeping score of past results on a chart is a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most common and definitely the most acknowledged scheme is the one, three, two, six method. This method is used to build up profits and minimizing losses.

Begin by placing one chip. If you win, add another to the two on the game table for a grand total of three units on the second bet. If you succeed you will hold six on the game table, subtract 4 so you keep 2 on the third wager. Should you come away with a win on the third wager, add 2 on the 4 on the game table for a grand total of six on the 4th wager.

Should you do not win on the initial round, you take a loss of one. A profit on the 1st round followed by a loss on the 2nd causes a hit of two. Wins on the initial 2 with a hit on the third provides you with a gain of 2. And success on the initial three with a loss on the fourth means you balance the books. Winning all four rounds gives you with twelve, a take of ten. This means you will be able to not win on the 2nd round five instances for each favorable run of 4 wagers and still break even.
