Baccarat Chemin de Fer Rules and Strategy

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Regulations

Baccarat is enjoyed with eight decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards valued less than ten are counted at face value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The total for every hand is the total of the two cards, but the 1st digit is ignored. For instance, a hand of five and 6 has a value of 1 (5 plus six equals 11; drop the first ‘1′).

A third card can be given out using the following rules:

- If the gambler or banker has a value of eight or nine, both players stand.

- If the player has less than 5, she takes a card. Players otherwise hold.

- If the gambler stands, the banker takes a card on a value less than five. If the player takes a card, a table is used to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The larger of the 2 totals wins. Winning wagers on the house pay out 19:20 (equal money minus a five percent rake. Commission are recorded and paid off when you leave the table so ensure you have cash left before you depart). Winning wagers on the player pay 1:1. Winning wagers for tie frequently pays 8 to 1 but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as ties happen lower than 1 in every ten rounds. Avoid betting on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

Bet on correctly baccarat banque offers pretty good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

As with all games Baccarat has a few accepted myths. One of which is close to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past isn’t an indicator of future events. Keeping track of past results on a sheet of paper is a poor use of paper and an affront to the tree that was cut down for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and possibly the most acknowledged plan is the 1-3-2-6 tactic. This plan is deployed to maximize winnings and minimizing risk.

Start by placing 1 unit. If you succeed, add another to the 2 on the table for a sum of three units on the second bet. If you win you will hold 6 on the game table, remove 4 so you have two on the 3rd wager. Should you succeed on the third wager, deposit two on the four on the table for a sum total of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you do not win on the 1st round, you take a hit of 1. A profit on the initial wager followed by a hit on the second creates a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a hit on the 3rd gives you with a gain of two. And success on the first 3 with a hit on the fourth means you are even. Winning all four wagers gives you with twelve, a gain of 10. This means you can lose the 2nd bet five times for each favorable streak of 4 rounds and in the end, balance the books.
