## Baccarat Banque Rules and Strategy

Baccarat Banque Regulations

Baccarat chemin de fer is bet on with 8 decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards below ten are worth their printed value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not really people; they simply represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘house’ and ‘gambler’. The value for each hand is the total of the two cards, but the first digit is dropped. For example, a hand of 5 and six has a value of one (5 plus six equals 11; dump the initial ‘one’).

A 3rd card will be dealt based on the following rules:

- If the player or bank has a value of eight or 9, the two players hold.

- If the player has 5 or less, he takes a card. Players otherwise stay.

- If the gambler stands, the house takes a card on a total lower than 5. If the gambler takes a card, a chart is employed to see if the house holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The greater of the two scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay out 19:20 (equal cash minus a five percent rake. The Rake is kept track of and paid off when you leave the game so be sure to still have cash remaining before you quit). Winning wagers on the gambler pay 1 to 1. Winning wagers for a tie typically pays out at 8 to 1 but sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a poor wager as a tie occurs lower than one in every 10 hands. Be wary of putting money on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for nine to one vs. eight to one)

Played correctly baccarat chemin de fer provides fairly good odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Banque Scheme

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has a few familiar misconceptions. One of which is the same as a absurdity in roulette. The past isn’t a harbinger of events about to happen. Keeping score of previous results on a chart is a bad use of paper and an affront to the tree that was cut down for our stationary desires.

The most accepted and probably the most favorable scheme is the 1-3-2-6 method. This technique is employed to maximize winnings and limit losses.

Begin by wagering 1 unit. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the table for a total of three units on the second bet. Should you succeed you will now have 6 on the game table, take away four so you are left with two on the third round. If you come away with a win on the third wager, add two on the four on the table for a sum total of six on the fourth bet.

Should you don’t win on the 1st round, you take a hit of one. A profit on the initial bet followed by a hit on the second creates a loss of two. Success on the initial 2 with a hit on the third provides you with a take of 2. And success on the first 3 with a hit on the fourth means you break even. Winning all 4 rounds gives you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you can give up the second wager five times for every successful streak of 4 wagers and still break even.
