Baccarat Chemin de Fer Rules and Strategy

Punto Banco Rules

Baccarat chemin de fer is gambled on with eight decks in a shoe. Cards below 10 are counted at their printed number while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not really people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The score for each hand is the total of the two cards, although the 1st digit is discarded. For instance, a hand of 5 and 6 has a total of one (5 plus six equals 11; ignore the 1st ‘one’).

A 3rd card could be dealt using the rules below:

- If the player or bank has a score of 8 or nine, both players hold.

- If the gambler has less than 5, he hits. Players holds otherwise.

- If the gambler holds, the house hits on five or less. If the gambler takes a card, a table is used to figure out if the banker holds or hits.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The better of the two hands wins. Winning bets on the house pay out 19:20 (equal cash minus a 5 percent rake. Commission are recorded and paid off when you depart the table so be sure to have funds remaining before you quit). Winning wagers on the gambler pays out at one to one. Winning wagers for tie frequently pay 8:1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a poor bet as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every ten hands. Avoid wagering on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for nine to one versus 8:1)

Gambled on correctly punto banco gives pretty good odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Banque Course of Action

As with all games punto banco has a handful of familiar myths. One of which is similar to a absurdity in roulette. The past is not a prophecy of future actions. Tracking past results on a sheet of paper is a bad use of paper and an affront to the tree that was cut down for our paper desires.

The most familiar and likely the most accomplished plan is the 1-3-2-6 tactic. This tactic is deployed to pump up profits and minimizing losses.

Start by betting 1 chip. If you succeed, add 1 more to the 2 on the game table for a total of 3 chips on the second bet. Should you win you will hold six on the table, pull off four so you are left with 2 on the third round. Should you succeed on the third wager, put down 2 to the 4 on the game table for a sum total of six on the fourth bet.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by a loss on the second creates a hit of two. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a take of two. And success on the first three with a hit on the fourth means you break even. Winning at all 4 bets leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you will be able to not win on the 2nd round 5 times for each successful run of 4 bets and in the end, balance the books.
