Punto Banco Rules

Baccarat is enjoyed with eight decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards under ten are worth their printed number 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 are not really people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand is the sum of the two cards, although the 1st digit is dropped. For instance, a hand of five and 6 has a total of 1 (5 plus 6 = eleven; dump the 1st ‘one’).

A additional card can be dealt using the following rules:

- If the gambler or house gets a value of 8 or 9, both players stand.

- If the gambler has less than 5, he takes a card. Players otherwise stand.

- If the player stands, the banker hits on a value lower than five. If the player hits, a chart is used to figure out if the bank stands or hits.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The higher of the 2 totals wins. Winning bets on the house pay out 19:20 (even payout less a 5% commission. Commission are tracked and cleared out once you leave the game so be sure to have money left just before you quit). Winning bets on the gambler pay 1:1. Winning wagers for tie frequently pays eight to one but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a poor wager as a tie occurs less than one in every ten rounds. Be cautious of putting money on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9:1 vs. 8:1)

Bet on properly baccarat chemin de fer offers relatively good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Course of Action

As with all games baccarat banque has a few familiar false impressions. One of which is the same as a false impression in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of events about to happen. Tracking previous outcomes on a page of paper is a bad use of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary needs.

The most familiar and definitely the most acknowledged scheme is the one, three, two, six technique. This technique is used to build up winnings and minimizing losses.

Start by betting one dollar. If you win, add another to the two on the game table for a total of 3 dollars on the second bet. Should you win you will hold 6 on the table, remove four so you are left with two on the 3rd wager. If you succeed on the 3rd round, add 2 on the 4 on the game table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th wager.

Should you lose on the first bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first wager followed by a loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of two. Wins on the 1st 2 with a defeat on the third gives you with a profit of two. And success on the first three with a defeat on the fourth means you experience no loss. Succeeding at all four rounds leaves you with twelve, a gain of ten. This means you will be able to give up the 2nd round five instances for each successful streak of four rounds and still break even.
