Baccarat Standards

Baccarat banque is played with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards under 10 are worth their printed value and with Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is one. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they simply represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘house’ and ‘gambler’. The score for every hand is the sum of the 2 cards, however the 1st digit is dropped. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a score of 1 (5 plus six equals 11; ignore the 1st ‘1′).

A third card can be given out based on the following rules:

- If the gambler or banker achieves a total of eight or nine, both players hold.

- If the player has five or less, she hits. Players otherwise hold.

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

Baccarat Banque Odds

The greater of the two totals wins. Winning wagers on the bank pay out 19 to 20 (equal money less a five percent commission. The Rake is kept track of and cleared out once you depart the game so be sure to have cash remaining just before you depart). Winning wagers on the gambler pays 1:1. Winning bets for tie normally pays 8:1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is a poor bet as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every ten rounds. Be wary of betting on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly better for 9:1 versus eight to one)

Gambled on properly baccarat provides relatively good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Banque Strategy

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has a few established misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a myth in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of future actions. Tracking previous results on a sheet of paper is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper needs.

The most familiar and definitely the most acknowledged method is the one-three-two-six plan. This technique is used to maximize profits and limit risk.

Start by placing 1 unit. If you win, add another to the two on the table for a sum total of three units on the second bet. Should you succeed you will retain 6 on the table, subtract 4 so you are left with two on the third bet. If you succeed on the third bet, deposit two to the four on the game table for a sum total of 6 on the 4th wager.

Should you lose on the initial bet, you take a hit of one. A win on the first bet followed by a loss on the 2nd causes a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a profit of two. And success on the 1st 3 with a loss on the 4th means you balance the books. Winning all 4 bets gives you with 12, a gain of 10. This means you can squander the second round 5 instances for every successful streak of 4 wagers and still break even.
