Baccarat Banque Regulations

Baccarat is gambled on with 8 decks in a dealing shoe. Cards under ten are worth face value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is 1. Bets are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not really people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The value for every hand is the sum total of the two cards, however the beginning number is dumped. For example, a hand of 5 and 6 has a value of one (5 plus six = eleven; drop the initial ‘1′).

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

- If the gambler or bank has a score of eight or nine, both players stand.

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

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

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The greater of the 2 scores wins. Winning wagers on the house payout 19:20 (equal money less a 5% commission. The Rake is recorded and cleared out when you leave the game so make sure you have money remaining before you depart). Winning wagers on the player pay one to one. Winning bets for tie typically pays 8 to 1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a bad wager as ties happen less than 1 in every 10 hands. Avoid betting on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for 9 to 1 versus 8:1)

Wagered on properly baccarat gives relatively decent odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Banque Course of Action

As with all games punto banco has a few accepted myths. One of which is close to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past isn’t a harbinger of events yet to happen. Recording past outcomes on a page of paper is a poor use of paper and a snub to the tree that gave its life for our paper needs.

The most familiar and almost certainly the most successful course of action is the one, three, two, six method. This method is deployed to maximize profits and limit risk.

Start by wagering 1 dollar. If you win, add another to the two on the game table for a total of 3 dollars on the second bet. Should you win you will now have 6 on the table, pull off four so you are left with two on the third round. Should you succeed on the third bet, add 2 on the four on the game table for a grand total of six on the 4th round.

Should you do not win on the 1st bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the initial bet followed by a hit on the 2nd brings about a hit of 2. Success on the initial two with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a gain of two. And success on the initial 3 with a loss on the fourth means you experience no loss. Winning at all 4 bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you will be able to lose the second round 5 times for every successful streak of 4 wagers and still experience no loss.
