Baccarat Rules and Scheme

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Codes

Punto banco is wagered on with eight decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards below ten are counted at their printed number while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The value for each hand is the sum of the two cards, although the 1st digit is dumped. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a value of 1 (5 plus 6 = 11; drop the initial ‘1′).

A additional card might be dealt using the rules below:

- If the player or banker gets a value of 8 or 9, both players stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or less, he takes a card. Players holds otherwise.

- If the gambler stands, the house hits on 5 or lower. If the gambler takes a card, a table is used to see if the house holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The better of the two hands wins. Winning wagers on the banker payout 19:20 (equal cash minus a 5 percent commission. The Rake is kept track of and cleared out once you leave the game so be sure to still have money left just before you leave). Winning bets on the gambler pays one to one. Winning wagers for a tie usually pay 8:1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as ties happen less than 1 in every 10 hands. Be wary of betting on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for 9:1 versus eight to one)

Played properly baccarat banque provides pretty good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Scheme

As with all games baccarat banque has a handful of accepted misunderstandings. One of which is close to a absurdity in roulette. The past isn’t a prophecy of events yet to happen. Recording previous outcomes on a page of paper is a poor use of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary desires.

The most established and definitely the most successful method is the 1-3-2-6 tactic. This tactic is used to build up earnings and limit losses.

Start by wagering one chip. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the table for a sum total of three chips on the second bet. Should you succeed you will hold six on the game table, take away four so you are left with 2 on the 3rd round. If you succeed on the third round, add 2 on the 4 on the game table for a sum total of six on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the first wager, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the initial bet followed by a loss on the second causes a hit of 2. Wins on the first two with a defeat on the 3rd provides you with a profit of two. And success on the 1st three with a loss on the 4th means you are even. Winning all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. This means you can lose the 2nd wager five instances for each successful run of four rounds and still are even.
