Baccarat Chemin de Fer Rules and Scheme

Punto Banco Rules

Baccarat banque is bet on with 8 decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards under ten are valued at their printed value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand is the total of the cards, although the 1st number is dumped. e.g., a hand of 5 and six has a score of one (5 plus 6 equals 11; ditch the 1st ‘one’).

A third card can be given using the rules below:

- If the gambler or banker has a total of eight or 9, both players stand.

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

- If the gambler stays, the house takes a card on five or lower. If the player hits, a chart is employed to determine if the house stays or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The bigger of the 2 totals wins. Winning bets on the house pay out nineteen to Twenty (equal cash minus a 5% rake. The Rake is tracked and cleared out once you leave the table so be sure to have money around just before you leave). Winning bets on the gambler pays out at 1 to 1. Winning wagers for a tie typically pays out at eight to one but on occasion nine to one. (This is a awful bet as ties happen less than 1 in every 10 hands. Be wary of putting money on a tie. However odds are astonishingly greater for nine to one vs. 8:1)

Gambled on correctly baccarat offers fairly decent odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Method

As with all games baccarat banque has some accepted myths. One of which is the same as a misunderstanding in roulette. The past isn’t an indicator of future actions. Tracking past results at a table is a bad use of paper and an insult to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and probably the most acknowledged strategy is the 1-3-2-6 tactic. This tactic is deployed to maximize winnings and limit losses.

Start by placing one unit. If you succeed, add another to the 2 on the table for a grand total of three dollars on the second bet. Should you win you will have 6 on the game table, take away four so you keep two on the 3rd wager. If you succeed on the 3rd wager, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a total of 6 on the fourth bet.

Should you lose on the initial round, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the 1st bet followed by a loss on the second creates a hit of two. Wins on the first 2 with a hit on the third gives you with a gain of two. And success on the 1st 3 with a defeat on the fourth means you balance the books. Winning at all 4 rounds leaves you with twelve, a gain of ten. This means you can squander the second round 5 instances for every successful streak of four bets and in the end, experience no loss.
