## Baccarat Chemin de Fer Rules and Strategy

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Codes

Baccarat chemin de fer is wagered on with eight decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards below ten are worth their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace 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 that are dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the sum total of the 2 cards, although the first digit is dropped. For example, a hand of 5 and 6 has a score of 1 (5 plus six = eleven; ignore the first ‘one’).

A additional card might be dealt using the following rules:

- If the player or bank achieves a value of eight or 9, the two players stay.

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

- If the player holds, the banker hits on a total lower than 5. If the gambler hits, a table is employed to determine if the bank holds or hits.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The bigger of the 2 totals wins. Winning bets on the bank payout 19 to 20 (even money minus a 5 percent rake. The Rake is recorded and paid off when you quit the table so be sure to have money left over just before you depart). Winning wagers on the player pays out at 1:1. Winning wagers for tie normally pays out at eight to one but sometimes nine to one. (This is a poor bet as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every 10 hands. Avoid gambling on a tie. Although odds are substantially greater for 9:1 vs. 8:1)

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

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games punto banco has a handful of general misconceptions. One of which is close to a myth in roulette. The past isn’t a prophecy of future outcomes. Recording previous 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 established and possibly the most successful method is the one-three-two-six method. This technique is employed to build up profits and limit risk.

Start by betting 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the game table for a grand total of three units on the second bet. If you win you will hold six on the game table, remove four so you are left with 2 on the 3rd round. If you come away with a win on the 3rd round, add two on the four on the game table for a total of six on the fourth round.

Should you lose on the initial wager, you take a hit of one. A win on the 1st wager followed by a loss on the 2nd causes a hit of 2. Success on the first 2 with a defeat on the third provides you with a take of 2. And wins on the initial 3 with a hit on the fourth means you balance the books. Winning all 4 rounds gives you with twelve, a gain of 10. This means you will be able to lose the 2nd wager 5 instances for each favorable streak of 4 rounds and in the end, experience no loss.
