Punto Banco Standards

Baccarat chemin de fer is enjoyed with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards under 10 are counted at face value and with Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not really people; they simply represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The value for each hand is the total of the two cards, but the beginning digit is ignored. e.g., a hand of five and six has a total of one (5 plus 6 = 11; drop the 1st ‘1′).

A 3rd card will be given out depending on the rules below:

- If the player or bank achieves a score of eight or 9, both players hold.

- If the player has 5 or lower, she hits. Players holds otherwise.

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

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The greater of the two scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker payout 19:20 (even payout less a 5% rake. Commission are recorded and paid off when you depart the table so be sure to still have money around before you depart). Winning wagers on the gambler pays out at 1 to 1. Winning wagers for tie normally pays out at 8 to 1 but sometimes nine to one. (This is a poor wager as ties occur less than one in every 10 rounds. Avoid putting money on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for 9 to 1 versus 8:1)

Gambled on properly punto banco offers pretty decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Banque Strategy

As with all games Baccarat has a few general myths. One of which is close to a absurdity in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of events about to happen. Tracking previous outcomes at a table is a bad use of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our stationary desires.

The most familiar and likely the most successful scheme is the one-three-two-six plan. This technique is used to maximize earnings and limit risk.

Start by betting 1 chip. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the game table for a sum of three dollars on the second bet. If you succeed you will retain six on the table, remove 4 so you have two on the 3rd round. If you win the 3rd wager, add 2 on the four on the table for a total of six on the 4th round.

Should you don’t win on the first round, you take a hit of 1. A profit on the 1st wager followed by a loss on the 2nd brings about a hit of 2. Success on the first two with a defeat on the third provides you with a profit of 2. And wins on the 1st 3 with a hit on the fourth means you balance the books. Winning all four rounds leaves you with twelve, a gain of 10. This means you will be able to squander the second bet 5 times for every favorable streak of 4 wagers and in the end, break even.
