Baccarat Chemin de Fer Codes

Punto banco is bet on with eight decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards below 10 are worth face value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Bets are made 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 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The total for every hand is the sum of the two cards, although the 1st number is ignored. e.g., a hand of five and six has a value of 1 (5 plus six equals 11; drop the initial ‘one’).

A third card can be given out based on the following rules:

- If the player or banker has a total of eight or nine, the two players hold.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, he takes a card. Players otherwise stand.

- If the gambler stands, the banker takes a card on a value lower than five. If the gambler hits, a table is used to determine if the banker stands or takes a card.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two hands wins. Winning wagers on the banker payout nineteen to Twenty (even money less a 5% rake. The Rake is tracked and paid off when you depart the game so be sure to have money around just before you head out). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning wagers for a tie typically pay 8:1 but sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a awful wager as a tie occurs less than 1 in every 10 hands. Be cautious of wagering on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for 9 to 1 versus 8 to 1)

Played properly baccarat gives pretty decent odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Method

As with all games Baccarat has a handful of accepted misconceptions. One of which is close to a myth in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of future outcomes. Keeping track of past results at a table is a bad use of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most familiar and likely the most favorable course of action is the one-three-two-six plan. This tactic is employed to maximize profits and limit losses.

Begin by placing one unit. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the table for a sum of 3 chips on the second bet. Should you succeed you will hold 6 on the table, subtract four so you have 2 on the 3rd bet. If you succeed on the 3rd wager, deposit 2 on the 4 on the game table for a total of six on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you take a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed by a loss on the second brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third gives you with a gain of two. And success on the initial three with a defeat on the 4th means you experience no loss. Winning all 4 rounds leaves you with twelve, a take of 10. This means you will be able to not win on the second wager 5 times for each favorable streak of 4 rounds and in the end, experience no loss.
