Punto Banco Regulations

Baccarat chemin de fer is bet on with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards below 10 are worth their printed number and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is 1. Wagers are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not really people; they simply represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The score for every hand is the total of the two cards, although the first digit is dropped. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a score of one (five plus 6 equals 11; ditch the first ‘one’).

A third card will be given using the following rules:

- If the player or house achieves a value of 8 or 9, the two players stand.

- If the player has 5 or less, she hits. Players otherwise stand.

- If the player stands, the house hits on five or less. If the gambler takes a card, a chart is employed to see if the house stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The greater of the 2 totals wins. Winning bets on the house pay out 19 to 20 (equal cash minus a five percent commission. Commission are kept track of and cleared out once you leave the table so be sure to have cash remaining just before you head out). Winning wagers on the gambler pays out at 1:1. Winning bets for tie frequently pays 8:1 but sometimes nine to one. (This is a bad bet as ties occur less than 1 in every 10 hands. Be wary of wagering on a tie. However odds are astonishingly greater for 9:1 versus 8 to 1)

Wagered on properly baccarat banque offers fairly good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Course of Action

As with all games baccarat banque has a few general misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past isn’t a harbinger of events yet to happen. Tracking previous results on a chart is a poor use of paper and an affront to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most familiar and probably the most favorable strategy is the 1-3-2-6 method. This method is used to build up earnings and minimizing losses.

Start by placing one dollar. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the game table for a total of 3 dollars on the second bet. Should you succeed you will retain six on the table, subtract 4 so you have two on the third round. Should you succeed on the 3rd bet, put down 2 to the four on the game table for a total of six on the fourth bet.

If you lose on the first bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first bet followed by a loss on the second causes a loss of two. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a profit of 2. And success on the 1st 3 with a defeat on the 4th means you break even. Succeeding at all four wagers gives you with twelve, a take of ten. This means you can give up the 2nd wager 5 instances for every successful run of four rounds and in the end, are even.
