Baccarat Standards

Baccarat chemin de fer is enjoyed with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards valued less than 10 are valued at their printed number and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they just represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand is the total of the cards, although the first digit is ignored. For example, a hand of 5 and six has a total of one (five plus six = 11; drop the initial ‘1′).

A third card might be given out depending on the rules below:

- If the player or banker achieves a value of eight or 9, both players stand.

- If the gambler has less than five, she takes a card. Players stands otherwise.

- If the player holds, the banker hits on five or less. If the player takes a card, a chart is employed to determine if the house stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The greater of the 2 hands wins. Winning bets on the house pay out 19 to 20 (equal money minus a 5 percent commission. Commission are recorded and cleared out when you quit the table so ensure you have cash left before you head out). Winning wagers on the player pay 1:1. Winning wagers for tie normally pays 8:1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a bad wager as ties occur less than 1 in every ten rounds. Be wary of putting money on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for 9:1 vs. 8 to 1)

Played properly baccarat gives generally good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games baccarat banque has quite a few accepted myths. One of which is close to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past isn’t a harbinger of events yet to happen. Keeping track of past results on a page of paper is a bad use of paper and an affront to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper desires.

The most accepted and likely the most acknowledged course of action is the one, three, two, six method. This method is deployed to pump up earnings and minimizing losses.

Start by placing 1 unit. If you win, add another to the two on the game table for a grand total of three dollars on the second bet. Should you succeed you will now have six on the game table, pull off 4 so you have two on the 3rd bet. Should you win the third round, add 2 on the four on the game table for a total of 6 on the fourth round.

Should you do not win on the first bet, you take a loss of one. A profit on the first bet followed by a loss on the second brings about a loss of two. Success on the first two with a hit on the third gives you with a gain of 2. And success on the first 3 with a hit on the fourth means you break even. Succeeding at all 4 wagers gives you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you will be able to give up the 2nd round five instances for every favorable run of 4 bets and in the end, break even.
