Baccarat Chemin de Fer Policies and Plan

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Regulations

Baccarat is wagered on with eight decks in a shoe. Cards below ten are counted at their printed value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Bets are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they simply represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for every hand is the sum of the 2 cards, however the first number is ignored. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a total of 1 (five plus 6 equals 11; ditch the 1st ‘1′).

A 3rd card can be dealt using the rules below:

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

- If the gambler has less than 5, he takes a card. Players stays otherwise.

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

Baccarat Odds

The better of the two scores wins. Winning wagers on the house payout 19 to 20 (equal cash minus a 5% rake. Commission are tracked and cleared out when you quit the game so make sure you still have funds around before you head out). Winning bets on the player pays out at one to one. Winning bets for a tie typically pays eight to one but occasionally 9:1. (This is a bad wager as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every ten hands. Avoid betting on a tie. Although odds are substantially greater for 9:1 versus eight to one)

Bet on correctly baccarat chemin de fer offers fairly decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has a handful of accepted myths. One of which is similar to a myth in roulette. The past isn’t an indicator of events about to happen. Recording previous outcomes on a page of paper is a bad use of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most accepted and probably the most accomplished method is the 1-3-2-6 method. This method is employed to maximize earnings and minimizing risk.

Start by wagering one chip. If you win, add another to the 2 on the game table for a grand total of three dollars on the second bet. Should you win you will have 6 on the game table, pull off 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd wager. Should you come away with a win on the third round, put down two to the four on the game table for a sum total of six on the fourth bet.

If you don’t win on the initial round, you take a hit of 1. A win on the first round followed by a loss on the second brings about a hit of two. Success on the initial 2 with a defeat on the 3rd provides you with a profit of two. And wins on the first three with a defeat on the 4th means you balance the books. Winning all 4 wagers gives you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you are able to give up the second wager five times for every favorable run of four wagers and still balance the books.
