Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is enjoyed with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards under 10 are worth face value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The total for each hand is the sum of the two cards, however the beginning number is discarded. For example, a hand of five and six has a score of one (five plus 6 equals eleven; ignore the first ‘1′).

A third card can be dealt using the rules below:

- If the player or bank achieves a value of 8 or 9, both players hold.

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

- If the gambler stands, the house hits on five or lower. If the player hits, a guide is used to decide if the house holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The larger of the 2 scores wins. Winning bets on the house payout 19 to 20 (even money less a 5 percent commission. The Rake is kept track of and paid off once you quit the table so be sure to have cash left over before you quit). Winning bets on the gambler pays out at one to one. Winning bets for tie frequently pay 8 to 1 but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every ten rounds. Be wary of wagering on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for nine to one vs. eight to one)

Wagered on correctly punto banco provides fairly good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Method

As with all games Baccarat has a few familiar misunderstandings. One of which is close to a false impression in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of future events. Recording previous results on a page of paper is a poor use of paper and a snub to the tree that gave its life for our paper desires.

The most familiar and definitely the most favorable plan is the one, three, two, six plan. This plan is employed to pump up earnings and minimizing losses.

Begin by wagering one chip. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the game table for a total of three units on the second bet. If you win you will now have 6 on the table, remove 4 so you are left with 2 on the third bet. Should you come away with a win on the third round, put down two to the four on the game table for a grand total of six on the 4th bet.

If you lose on the first wager, you take a hit of 1. A win on the 1st round followed by a loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of 2. Success on the first 2 with a defeat on the third gives you with a gain of 2. And wins on the initial 3 with a hit on the 4th means you break even. Winning at all four bets leaves you with twelve, a gain of 10. This means you can not win on the second bet 5 instances for every successful run of 4 bets and still break even.
