Baccarat Banque Rules

Baccarat chemin de fer is enjoyed with 8 decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards under ten are counted at face value while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is 1. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The score for each hand is the sum total of the cards, although the beginning number is dropped. For instance, a hand of five and 6 has a value of one (5 plus 6 equals eleven; drop the 1st ‘1′).

A third card may be given using the rules below:

- If the gambler or house achieves a total of 8 or nine, the two players stay.

- If the player has less than five, she hits. Players otherwise stand.

- If the player stands, the banker takes a card on a total less than 5. If the player takes a card, a chart is employed to determine if the banker stays or hits.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The bigger of the two totals wins. Winning wagers on the bank pay out 19 to 20 (even money less a 5% rake. The Rake is tracked and paid off once you quit the table so make sure you still have funds around before you depart). Winning wagers on the player pays 1:1. Winning wagers for tie frequently pays eight to one but occasionally nine to one. (This is a bad wager as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every ten hands. Be cautious of betting on a tie. However odds are substantially better for nine to one versus 8 to 1)

Wagered on properly baccarat gives pretty good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Strategy

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has quite a few familiar false impressions. One of which is the same as a myth in roulette. The past isn’t an indicator of events about to happen. Recording previous results on a page of paper is a bad use of paper and an affront to the tree that gave its life for our stationary desires.

The most established and likely the most accomplished plan is the one-three-two-six tactic. This plan is used to maximize earnings and minimizing risk.

Start by betting 1 dollar. If you succeed, add another to the two on the table for a grand total of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you win you will hold 6 on the table, pull off 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd wager. Should you succeed on the 3rd bet, put down 2 on the 4 on the table for a grand total of six on the fourth wager.

Should you don’t win on the first bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by a loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of 2. Success on the first two with a loss on the 3rd gives you with a gain of 2. And success on the first 3 with a hit on the fourth means you are even. Winning all 4 bets leaves you with 12, a gain of ten. This means you will be able to not win on the second round 5 instances for every successful streak of 4 bets and in the end, break even.
