Baccarat Chemin de Fer Regulations

Punto banco is gambled on with eight decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards below 10 are worth their printed value while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is one. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not actual people; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The total for every hand is the sum of the cards, however the beginning number is dropped. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a value of one (five plus six = 11; dump the first ‘one’).

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

- If the gambler or house achieves a total of eight or 9, the two players stay.

- If the player has less than five, he takes a card. Players otherwise hold.

- If the player stays, the banker hits on a value less than 5. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to decide if the bank stands or takes a card.

Punto Banco Odds

The better of the 2 totals wins. Winning wagers on the bank pay out nineteen to Twenty (even money minus a 5 percent rake. The Rake is recorded and paid off when you leave the game so make sure you have funds left before you leave). Winning bets on the gambler pay 1 to 1. Winning wagers for tie typically pays 8 to 1 but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as ties happen lower than 1 in every 10 hands. Be wary of putting money on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for 9 to 1 vs. 8:1)

Wagered on correctly baccarat chemin de fer offers fairly decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Method

As with all games punto banco has a few familiar misconceptions. One of which is close to a myth in roulette. The past isn’t a prophecy of events about to happen. Keeping track of past results on a sheet of paper is a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our stationary desires.

The most accepted and probably the most acknowledged course of action is the 1-3-2-6 technique. This plan is deployed to maximize profits and limit losses.

Begin by betting 1 dollar. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a grand total of three dollars on the second bet. If you succeed you will hold 6 on the game table, take away 4 so you keep 2 on the third round. Should you come away with a win on the 3rd bet, add 2 to the four on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the first wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the initial wager followed by a loss on the 2nd creates a hit of two. Success on the initial 2 with a hit on the 3rd provides you with a profit of 2. And success on the first three with a hit on the 4th means you break even. Winning at all four rounds leaves you with twelve, a gain of 10. This means you can lose the 2nd bet five times for every favorable streak of 4 rounds and in the end, break even.
