Baccarat Chemin de Fer Rules and Method

Punto Banco Regulations

Punto banco is played with 8 decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards valued less than ten are counted at their printed value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is one. Bets are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they simply represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The score for every hand is the sum total of the two cards, although the beginning digit is discarded. For instance, a hand of 5 and six has a value of 1 (5 plus 6 equals eleven; ditch the initial ‘1′).

A 3rd card might be given using the rules below:

- If the gambler or house has a value of eight or 9, the two players stay.

- If the player has 5 or lower, she takes a card. Players otherwise stay.

- If the player stays, the banker takes a card on five or less. If the gambler takes a card, a table is used to decide if the bank holds or takes a card.

Punto Banco Odds

The greater of the 2 hands wins. Winning bets on the bank payout nineteen to Twenty (even payout less a 5% rake. Commission are kept track of and cleared out once you leave the game so make sure you still have cash left over just before you quit). Winning bets on the player pays out at one to one. Winning bets for tie normally pay 8 to 1 but sometimes nine to one. (This is a awful wager as ties happen lower than one in every ten rounds. Avoid betting on a tie. Although odds are substantially better for nine to one vs. 8 to 1)

Wagered on properly baccarat gives relatively decent odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Strategy

As with all games punto banco has a few general false impressions. One of which is the same as a false impression in roulette. The past isn’t a harbinger of future events. Keeping score of past outcomes on a sheet of paper is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and probably the most accomplished plan is the 1-3-2-6 tactic. This method is used to pump up profits and minimizing losses.

Begin by betting 1 chip. If you succeed, add another to the 2 on the table for a sum total of three dollars on the second bet. If you win you will retain six on the table, subtract four so you are left with 2 on the 3rd wager. Should you succeed on the third bet, add 2 on the 4 on the table for a sum total of 6 on the 4th bet.

If you do not win on the first bet, you take a loss of one. A profit on the initial bet followed by a hit on the second causes a hit of two. Wins on the 1st two with a defeat on the third gives you with a gain of 2. And wins on the 1st 3 with a loss on the 4th means you experience no loss. Succeeding at all 4 wagers gives you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you will be able to give up the 2nd wager five instances for each successful run of four bets and still break even.
