Baccarat Rules and Strategy

Punto Banco Policies

Baccarat banque is gambled on with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards under 10 are valued at face value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they simply represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for every hand is the sum total of the 2 cards, however the first digit is dumped. For example, a hand of 5 and six has a value of one (5 plus 6 equals 11; dump the first ‘one’).

A additional card will be dealt using the rules below:

- If the player or banker gets a score of eight or nine, the two players stand.

- If the player has 5 or less, she hits. Players holds otherwise.

- If the player stands, the bank takes a card on five or lower. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to figure out if the house stays or hits.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The greater of the 2 scores wins. Winning bets on the house payout 19 to 20 (equal money less a five percent commission. The Rake is recorded and paid off once you depart the game so make sure you still have funds remaining before you head out). Winning wagers on the gambler pays 1:1. Winning wagers for a tie typically pay 8 to 1 but sometimes 9:1. (This is a poor bet as ties happen lower than one in every 10 rounds. Be wary of putting money on a tie. However odds are substantially better for nine to one vs. 8 to 1)

Played correctly baccarat banque gives relatively decent odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Strategy

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has quite a few accepted misconceptions. One of which is similar to a myth in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of future outcomes. Keeping score of previous outcomes at a table is a bad use of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our stationary needs.

The most common and likely the most accomplished scheme is the one-three-two-six tactic. This plan is used to build up profits and limit losses.

Begin by placing one chip. If you succeed, add another to the two on the game table for a sum of 3 units on the second bet. Should you win you will hold 6 on the table, pull off four so you have 2 on the third wager. If you come away with a win on the 3rd bet, deposit 2 to the 4 on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the initial bet, you take a hit of one. A win on the initial bet followed by a loss on the 2nd creates a loss of two. Wins on the 1st 2 with a hit on the third provides you with a take of two. And success on the first three with a hit on the 4th means you balance the books. Succeeding at all 4 bets gives you with 12, a take of 10. This means you will be able to give up the 2nd round 5 times for every successful run of 4 wagers and in the end, experience no loss.
