Baccarat Rules and Plan

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Standards

Baccarat is wagered on with 8 decks in a shoe. Cards below ten are worth their printed number and with Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is 1. Wagers are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The total for every hand is the sum total of the two cards, but the first number is discarded. For instance, a hand of five and six has a score of 1 (five plus 6 equals eleven; drop the initial ‘one’).

A third card will be dealt depending on the following rules:

- If the gambler or bank gets a score of 8 or nine, both players hold.

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

- If the player stands, the banker hits on five or less. If the player takes a card, a table is used to see if the house stays or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 hands wins. Winning bets on the bank payout nineteen to Twenty (even money minus a 5 percent commission. Commission are tracked and paid off when you leave the table so make sure you have money around just before you quit). Winning bets on the player pay 1:1. Winning wagers for tie typically pay 8 to 1 but occasionally nine to one. (This is a poor bet as ties happen lower than one in every 10 rounds. Avoid putting money on a tie. Although odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 versus 8:1)

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

Baccarat Method

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has a few common misunderstandings. One of which is the same as a myth in roulette. The past isn’t an indicator of future events. Recording past outcomes on a page of paper is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary desires.

The most familiar and possibly the most acknowledged method is the 1-3-2-6 method. This technique is deployed to build up earnings and limit risk.

Begin by wagering one unit. If you win, add another to the two on the game table for a grand total of three units on the second bet. Should you succeed you will now have six on the table, take away four so you are left with two on the third bet. Should you win the third bet, add two to the four on the game table for a grand total of six on the 4th round.

If you don’t win on the initial round, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the initial wager followed by a hit on the second creates a hit of 2. Wins on the initial two with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a gain of two. And wins on the initial three with a loss on the 4th means you break even. Succeeding at all four bets gives you with twelve, a gain of ten. This means you can not win on the second wager 5 times for every successful streak of four bets and in the end, balance the books.
