Punto Banco Rules

Baccarat banque is played with eight decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards below ten are valued at face value while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is one. Bets are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not actual people; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The value for every hand is the sum total of the 2 cards, but the 1st number is ignored. For example, a hand of 5 and six has a total of one (5 plus six equals eleven; ignore the initial ‘one’).

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

- If the gambler or bank has a total of eight or nine, the two players hold.

- If the player has less than 5, he hits. Players otherwise hold.

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

Baccarat Banque Odds

The better of the two hands wins. Winning bets on the banker pay out 19:20 (even money less a 5% commission. The Rake is recorded and cleared out when you depart the table so make sure you have money around before you head out). Winning wagers on the gambler pay one to one. Winning bets for tie frequently pay 8 to 1 but sometimes nine to one. (This is a awful wager as ties occur less than one in every 10 hands. Be wary of betting on a tie. However odds are astonishingly greater for nine to one vs. 8:1)

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

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Course of Action

As with all games punto banco has a few established misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past isn’t a fore-teller of future events. Tracking previous results at a table is a bad use of paper and a snub to the tree that gave its life for our paper desires.

The most established and definitely the most acknowledged plan is the one, three, two, six plan. This technique is deployed to pump up earnings and limit losses.

Start by wagering 1 chip. If you succeed, add 1 more to the 2 on the game table for a sum of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you win you will now have six on the game table, remove four so you have 2 on the third wager. If you succeed on the third wager, add two on the four on the game table for a grand total of six on the fourth bet.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you take a loss of one. A profit on the first round followed by a loss on the second brings about a loss of 2. Success on the initial two with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a take of 2. And wins on the first three with a defeat on the fourth means you balance the books. Winning at all four rounds leaves you with twelve, a take of ten. This means you will be able to not win on the second round five instances for each successful run of 4 wagers and still are even.
