Baccarat Policies and Strategy

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Rules

Baccarat chemin de fer is played with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards under 10 are valued at their printed value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Bets are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the sum total of the 2 cards, but the 1st number is discarded. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a score of one (five plus six equals eleven; ditch the initial ‘one’).

A third card will be given using the following rules:

- If the player or banker gets a total of 8 or nine, both players hold.

- If the gambler has less than five, he takes a card. Players otherwise hold.

- If the player stands, the banker takes a card on a total less than five. If the player hits, a guide is used to figure out if the bank holds or hits.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The bigger of the two hands wins. Winning bets on the banker payout 19 to 20 (equal cash less a five percent rake. Commission are tracked and cleared out once you leave the game so ensure you still have cash left before you depart). Winning bets on the gambler pays 1:1. Winning bets for tie typically pays out at eight to one but on occasion 9:1. (This is a awful bet as ties happen lower than 1 in every 10 hands. Avoid putting money on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for 9:1 vs. 8 to 1)

Played correctly punto banco provides generally good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Banque Scheme

As with all games baccarat banque has some established misconceptions. One of which is the same as a misconception in roulette. The past isn’t an indicator of future outcomes. Keeping score of past results on a sheet of paper is a waste of paper and an affront to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most established and definitely the most acknowledged scheme is the one, three, two, six technique. This method is employed to pump up winnings and minimizing risk.

Start by placing one dollar. If you succeed, add another to the two on the table for a sum of three units on the second bet. Should you succeed you will retain 6 on the table, subtract 4 so you have 2 on the third bet. If you win the 3rd wager, add two to the 4 on the game table for a grand total of six on the 4th wager.

If you do not win on the first wager, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the first wager followed by a loss on the 2nd creates a loss of 2. Success on the 1st 2 with a hit on the 3rd gives you with a take of two. And success on the initial three with a defeat on the 4th means you experience no loss. Winning all four wagers leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you will be able to give up the 2nd round 5 instances for each successful run of 4 bets and in the end, are even.
