## Baccarat Policies and Strategy

Baccarat Banque Standards

Baccarat chemin de fer is gambled on with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards below ten are worth their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is one. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not actual people; they simply represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The total for every hand is the sum total of the cards, but the first number is dropped. e.g., a hand of 5 and six has a total of one (5 plus six = 11; drop the 1st ‘one’).

A additional card may be given out using the following rules:

- If the player or bank has a total of eight or 9, both players hold.

- If the player has less than 5, he takes a card. Players stands otherwise.

- If the gambler stands, the banker hits on a total lower than 5. If the player hits, a guide is used to figure out if the house stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The larger of the two scores wins. Winning wagers on the house payout 19:20 (even payout minus a five percent rake. The Rake is tracked and cleared out when you depart the game so make sure you have funds left just before you quit). Winning wagers on the player pay one to one. Winning bets for tie usually pays 8 to 1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is a bad wager as ties occur lower than one in every 10 rounds. Avoid wagering on a tie. Although odds are substantially better for 9:1 vs. eight to one)

Gambled on correctly punto banco provides pretty decent odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games punto banco has a few common misconceptions. One of which is similar to a misconception in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of events yet to happen. Keeping track of previous results at a table is a bad use of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and almost certainly the most favorable strategy is the 1-3-2-6 technique. This method is used to pump up profits and limit losses.

Begin by placing 1 dollar. If you win, add another to the two on the table for a grand total of 3 chips on the second bet. Should you succeed you will hold six on the game table, subtract 4 so you keep two on the 3rd wager. Should you succeed on the third wager, deposit two to the 4 on the game table for a sum total of 6 on the 4th round.

If you do not win on the 1st round, you take a hit of 1. A profit on the initial bet followed by a hit on the second brings about a hit of two. Success on the 1st two with a defeat on the third gives you with a gain of 2. And wins on the 1st 3 with a loss on the fourth means you are even. Winning all four wagers leaves you with twelve, a gain of 10. This means you will be able to not win on the 2nd round five instances for every favorable run of four bets and in the end, break even.
