Baccarat Principles

Baccarat is enjoyed with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards under 10 are valued at face value while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is 1. Bets are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘house’ and ‘gambler’. The value for each hand is the sum total of the cards, although the first digit is dumped. For instance, a hand of five and 6 has a score of one (five plus 6 = 11; ignore the initial ‘one’).

A third card may be given depending on the rules below:

- If the gambler or banker achieves a total of eight or nine, the two players stand.

- If the gambler has less than five, she takes a card. Players stays otherwise.

- If the player holds, the house takes a card on a value less than five. If the gambler takes a card, a chart is employed to see if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The greater of the two scores wins. Winning bets on the banker payout 19 to 20 (equal cash minus a 5 percent commission. The Rake is recorded and cleared out when you quit the game so ensure you still have cash remaining before you quit). Winning bets on the player pays out at 1 to 1. Winning bets for a tie frequently pays 8 to 1 but occasionally nine to one. (This is a bad wager as ties happen less than one in every 10 hands. Avoid gambling on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for 9 to 1 versus eight to one)

Gambled on properly baccarat chemin de fer gives fairly decent odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games baccarat banque has a few common misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a myth in roulette. The past is not an indicator of future outcomes. Tracking past results at a table is a poor use of paper and an affront to the tree that was cut down for our stationary needs.

The most common and probably the most accomplished course of action is the one-three-two-six technique. This method is deployed to maximize winnings and minimizing losses.

Begin by placing one chip. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the game table for a sum of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you succeed you will retain six on the game table, remove 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd bet. Should you succeed on the third wager, add 2 on the 4 on the table for a total of 6 on the fourth wager.

Should you don’t win on the initial round, you take a hit of 1. A profit on the initial round followed by a hit on the 2nd creates a loss of two. Success on the first two with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a profit of 2. And wins on the first three with a defeat on the fourth means you break even. Succeeding at all four rounds gives you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you are able to not win on the second round five times for each favorable run of four wagers and in the end, are even.
