Baccarat Banque Practices and Scheme

Punto Banco Regulations

Punto banco is gambled on with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards below 10 are valued at their printed number while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Bets are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not really people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The value for each hand is the total of the 2 cards, however the beginning digit is discarded. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a value of one (five plus six = 11; ignore the 1st ‘1′).

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

- If the player or banker gets a score of 8 or nine, the two players stay.

- If the player has 5 or lower, he hits. Players otherwise stay.

- If the player holds, the house hits on a value lower than 5. If the gambler hits, a table is employed to see if the bank stands or hits.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The greater of the two hands wins. Winning bets on the banker pay out 19 to 20 (equal cash less a 5% rake. The Rake is recorded and paid off once you leave the game so ensure you still have cash left over just before you depart). Winning wagers on the player pays 1:1. Winning wagers for tie usually pays out at 8:1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a bad wager as ties happen less than one in every 10 rounds. Be wary of gambling on a tie. Although odds are substantially greater for 9:1 vs. 8 to 1)

Gambled on properly baccarat chemin de fer gives pretty good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Course of Action

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has quite a few common misunderstandings. One of which is close to a myth in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of events about to happen. Tracking previous results on a sheet of paper is a poor use of paper and an affront to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and likely the most accomplished strategy is the one-three-two-six tactic. This plan is used to build up profits and minimizing losses.

Start by placing 1 dollar. If you succeed, add 1 more to the two on the game table for a total of three units on the second bet. Should you win you will have six on the game table, remove 4 so you are left with two on the 3rd round. Should you win the 3rd wager, put down 2 to the 4 on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th round.

Should you lose on the initial round, you take a hit of one. A profit on the initial wager followed by a loss on the 2nd brings about a hit of two. Wins on the initial two with a loss on the third gives you with a take of 2. And success on the initial three with a hit on the fourth means you balance the books. Succeeding at all 4 wagers leaves you with twelve, a take of ten. This means you can lose the 2nd wager 5 times for every successful streak of four rounds and still balance the books.
