Punto Banco Codes

Baccarat banque is played with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards under ten are worth their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The score for each hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the first number is dropped. For example, a hand of five and six has a score of 1 (5 plus 6 = 11; ditch the first ‘one’).

A 3rd card can be dealt using the rules below:

- If the player or house has a value of eight or 9, both players hold.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, she takes a card. Players otherwise hold.

- If the player stays, the bank hits on five or less. If the player takes a card, a table is used to determine if the bank stays or takes a card.

Punto Banco Odds

The larger of the 2 scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay out 19:20 (equal cash minus a 5 percent commission. Commission are recorded and cleared out once you quit the game so ensure you have funds remaining before you quit). Winning wagers on the player pay 1:1. Winning bets for tie usually pays out at 8:1 but sometimes 9:1. (This is a bad wager as a tie occurs lower than one in every 10 hands. Be wary of putting money on a tie. Although odds are substantially greater for 9:1 vs. 8 to 1)

Wagered on correctly punto banco provides relatively decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Scheme

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has a handful of familiar misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a false impression in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of future events. Keeping score of past 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 common and possibly the most favorable method is the 1-3-2-6 method. This tactic is employed to pump up earnings and minimizing losses.

Begin by betting one chip. If you win, add another to the 2 on the game table for a total of 3 units on the second bet. If you succeed you will now have six on the table, take away 4 so you have 2 on the third round. Should you win the third bet, deposit 2 on the four on the table for a grand total of six on the fourth bet.

Should you do not win on the 1st wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st round followed by a hit on the 2nd creates a hit of 2. Wins on the initial 2 with a defeat on the third provides you with a take of two. And success on the 1st three with a hit on the fourth means you are even. Winning all 4 wagers leaves you with 12, a take of ten. This means you are able to squander the 2nd bet five times for every successful streak of four bets and still balance the books.
