Punto Banco Regulations

Punto banco is gambled on with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards valued less than ten are counted at face value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Bets are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they just represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand is the sum of the cards, however the beginning digit is discarded. For instance, a hand of 5 and 6 has a score of 1 (five plus 6 = 11; ignore the initial ‘one’).

A third card might be dealt based on the rules below:

- If the gambler or banker achieves a score of eight or nine, both players stand.

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

- If the gambler stands, the bank hits on five or lower. If the player takes a card, a guide is employed to see if the banker holds or hits.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The better of the 2 totals wins. Winning wagers on the bank pay out 19:20 (even money minus a 5 percent rake. The Rake is kept track of and cleared out once you quit the table so make sure you have money left before you leave). Winning bets on the gambler pays out at 1:1. Winning wagers for a tie normally pays out at eight to one but on occasion nine to one. (This is a bad bet as ties occur less than 1 in every ten hands. Avoid gambling on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for nine to one vs. 8 to 1)

Gambled on properly baccarat offers relatively good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Banque Strategy

As with all games punto banco has a handful of accepted false impressions. One of which is close to a false impression in roulette. The past is not an indicator of events about to happen. Recording past results at a table is a bad use of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our stationary needs.

The most common and possibly the most acknowledged plan is the one, three, two, six technique. This tactic is used to maximize profits and limit losses.

Begin by betting one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a total of three units on the second bet. Should you succeed you will have six on the table, pull off four so you keep two on the 3rd wager. Should you win the 3rd bet, deposit 2 to the four on the table for a total of 6 on the fourth round.

Should you don’t win on the first bet, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the first round followed by a hit on the 2nd creates a hit of 2. Wins on the initial two with a hit on the third gives you with a gain of two. And success on the initial three with a defeat on the 4th means you balance the books. Winning at all 4 wagers gives you with 12, a gain of 10. This means you are able to squander the second round 5 instances for every favorable streak of 4 bets and in the end, break even.
