Baccarat Banque Regulations and Scheme

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat banque is gambled on with eight decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards valued less than ten are valued at face value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is one. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t actual people; they simply represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The value for each hand is the total of the two cards, but the first number is dumped. For example, a hand of 5 and six has a value of 1 (5 plus 6 equals 11; dump the first ‘1′).

A third card can be given out depending on the rules below:

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

- If the player has 5 or less, he takes a card. Players stays otherwise.

- If the gambler holds, the house hits on 5 or less. If the player takes a card, a guide is used to figure out if the bank stands or takes a card.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The larger of the 2 hands wins. Winning wagers on the bank pay out 19:20 (even money minus a five percent commission. Commission are kept track of and cleared out when you quit the table so be sure to have cash around before you leave). Winning bets on the gambler pays 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie frequently pays 8:1 but sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a poor bet as a tie occurs less than one in every ten hands. Avoid putting money on a tie. Although odds are substantially better for 9:1 versus eight to one)

Played correctly baccarat chemin de fer offers relatively good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Method

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has a few accepted myths. One of which is similar to a absurdity in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of events yet to happen. Keeping score of previous outcomes on a page of paper is a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary desires.

The most common and possibly the most acknowledged strategy is the one-three-two-six tactic. This plan is used to maximize profits and limit risk.

Start by wagering 1 dollar. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a grand total of three dollars on the second bet. Should you succeed you will now have 6 on the game table, take away four so you are left with 2 on the third round. If you come away with a win on the third round, put down two to the four on the table for a total of six on the 4th bet.

If you do not win on the 1st wager, you take a hit of one. A profit on the 1st wager followed by a loss on the second causes a hit of two. Wins on the first two with a loss on the third gives you with a gain of two. And success on the initial 3 with a hit on the 4th means you break even. Winning at all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. This means you can not win on the second bet 5 times for each favorable run of four bets and still experience no loss.
