Baccarat Regulations and Plan

[ English ]

Punto Banco Rules

Baccarat banque is played with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards under ten are worth their printed value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand is the sum of the 2 cards, although the first number is discarded. For example, a hand of 5 and 6 has a value of one (five plus six equals 11; ditch the initial ‘one’).

A additional card can be given out depending on the following rules:

- If the gambler or bank gets a value of 8 or 9, the two players hold.

- If the player has less than 5, she hits. Players otherwise stay.

- If the gambler stands, the bank hits on a value lower than five. If the gambler hits, a chart is employed to figure out if the banker holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores wins. Winning bets on the bank payout 19:20 (equal money less a five percent commission. Commission are kept track of and paid off when you leave the table so make sure you have money left before you head out). Winning bets on the gambler pays out at 1 to 1. Winning wagers for tie typically pays out at 8 to 1 but sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a poor wager as a tie occurs lower than one in every 10 rounds. Be cautious of gambling on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for 9:1 versus 8:1)

Wagered on properly baccarat chemin de fer provides pretty good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Method

As with all games punto banco has some accepted false impressions. One of which is close to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of events yet to happen. Keeping track of previous results at a table is a poor use of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary desires.

The most common and possibly the most favorable method is the 1-3-2-6 method. This plan is deployed to build up winnings and minimizing risk.

Start by placing 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the two on the game table for a sum of 3 units on the second bet. If you succeed you will retain six on the table, subtract 4 so you keep 2 on the 3rd bet. Should you come away with a win on the 3rd wager, add 2 to the 4 on the game table for a total of 6 on the fourth wager.

Should you lose on the initial wager, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the first wager followed by a hit on the 2nd brings about a hit of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a defeat on the 3rd gives you with a profit of 2. And success on the first 3 with a loss on the 4th means you break even. Winning at all four wagers leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you are able to squander the 2nd bet five instances for each favorable streak of four bets and still are even.
