Baccarat Policies

Baccarat chemin de fer is wagered on with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards under ten are valued at their printed number while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The total for each hand is the sum total of the two cards, but the 1st number is ignored. For instance, a hand of 5 and six has a score of 1 (5 plus 6 equals 11; drop the 1st ‘1′).

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

- If the gambler or house has a score of 8 or nine, both players stand.

- If the player has less than 5, she hits. Players stands otherwise.

- If the player stands, the house takes a card on a total lower than five. If the player takes a card, a guide is used to see if the house stays or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The better of the two totals wins. Winning wagers on the house pay out 19:20 (equal cash less a 5% commission. Commission are recorded and cleared out when you depart the table so ensure you have funds left just before you head out). Winning bets on the gambler pays 1 to 1. Winning wagers for tie frequently pays out at 8:1 but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a bad wager as a tie occurs less than 1 in every ten rounds. Be cautious of putting money on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for nine to one vs. 8:1)

Wagered on properly punto banco offers fairly good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Method

As with all games Baccarat has a few accepted myths. One of which is the same as a myth in roulette. The past isn’t a prophecy of future events. Keeping track of past outcomes at a table is a poor use of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our stationary desires.

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

Start by placing 1 unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a sum of three chips on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the game table, remove four so you are left with 2 on the third bet. If you win the third round, deposit 2 on the 4 on the table for a total of six on the fourth bet.

Should you do not win on the 1st round, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed by a hit on the second causes a hit of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a hit on the 3rd provides you with a take of two. And wins on the 1st 3 with a hit on the fourth means you break even. Winning all four wagers gives you with 12, a take of ten. This means you are able to squander the 2nd round 5 times for each favorable streak of four rounds and still experience no loss.
