Baccarat Banque Regulations

Baccarat chemin de fer is played with eight decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards valued less than ten are valued at face value 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 aren’t actual people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The value for each hand is the sum of the 2 cards, however the first digit is dumped. e.g., a hand of five and 6 has a score of one (five plus six equals 11; dump the first ‘1′).

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

- If the player or house achieves a value of eight or 9, the two players hold.

- If the player has less than 5, he hits. Players otherwise stay.

- If the gambler holds, the house hits on 5 or lower. If the player takes a card, a guide is employed to figure out if the house holds or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The greater of the 2 totals wins. Winning wagers on the banker payout 19 to 20 (equal cash minus a 5% rake. Commission are tracked and cleared out once you leave the game so be sure to still have money left just before you leave). Winning bets on the gambler pays out at 1 to 1. Winning wagers for a tie frequently pay 8 to 1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a poor wager as ties happen lower than one in every 10 hands. Be wary of wagering on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for 9:1 versus 8:1)

Bet on correctly baccarat gives fairly good odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Punto Banco Scheme

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has a few established myths. One of which is similar to a absurdity in roulette. The past isn’t a harbinger of events about to happen. Keeping score of previous results at a table is a poor use of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most familiar and possibly the most accomplished scheme is the 1-3-2-6 plan. This technique is used to build up profits and limit losses.

Begin by betting one chip. If you succeed, add another to the 2 on the game table for a sum of 3 units on the second bet. If you succeed you will now have six on the table, subtract 4 so you have 2 on the third round. Should you win the third wager, put down two to the 4 on the table for a grand total of six on the 4th round.

If you lose on the initial bet, you take a hit of one. A profit on the initial round followed by a hit on the second causes a hit of two. Wins on the first two with a hit on the 3rd gives you with a gain of 2. And wins on the 1st 3 with a hit on the 4th means you experience no loss. Winning all four wagers gives you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you are able to give up the second wager five times for every successful streak of four bets and in the end, are even.
