Baccarat Banque Policies

Baccarat banque is played with 8 decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards below ten are valued at their printed value while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is 1. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t actual people; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The total for every hand is the sum of the cards, although the beginning number is ignored. e.g., a hand of five and 6 has a total of one (five plus 6 = 11; ignore the 1st ‘one’).

A 3rd card might be dealt using the following rules:

- If the player or banker has a score of eight or nine, the two players stay.

- If the player has five or lower, he takes a card. Players stands otherwise.

- If the gambler stands, the bank takes a card on five or less. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to determine if the house stands or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The better of the two scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay out nineteen to Twenty (even money less a five percent rake. The Rake is kept track of and paid off when you leave the table so make sure you still have funds left over before you depart). Winning bets on the player pays out at 1 to 1. Winning wagers for a tie frequently pays out at 8:1 but sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a awful wager as a tie occurs less than one in every ten rounds. Be wary of wagering on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly better for 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

Played correctly punto banco gives pretty good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Strategy

As with all games Baccarat has a handful of accepted misunderstandings. One of which is the same as a false impression in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of future outcomes. Recording previous outcomes on a sheet of paper is a bad use of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most familiar and likely the most successful method is the one-three-two-six plan. This plan is deployed to pump up profits and limit risk.

Begin by placing 1 chip. If you succeed, add 1 more to the two on the table for a grand total of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you succeed you will hold six on the table, subtract four so you keep 2 on the third bet. If you win the third bet, put down 2 on the 4 on the table for a grand total of 6 on the fourth wager.

Should you do not win on the initial round, you take a hit of one. A win on the initial round followed by a hit on the 2nd creates a hit of 2. Success on the first two with a defeat on the 3rd provides you with a gain of two. And success on the first 3 with a hit on the fourth means you break even. Winning at all 4 wagers leaves you with twelve, a take of 10. This means you are able to squander the second round 5 times for each successful run of four bets and still break even.
