Punto Banco Rules and Scheme

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Principles

Baccarat banque is wagered on with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards below 10 are valued at their printed value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is 1. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the sum total of the 2 cards, however the beginning digit is dumped. For instance, a hand of 5 and six has a score of 1 (five plus 6 equals 11; dump the 1st ‘1′).

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

- If the player or house has a total of eight or nine, both players stand.

- If the gambler has less than 5, she takes a card. Players stands otherwise.

- If the gambler holds, the house hits on a value lower than five. If the gambler takes a card, a chart is used to decide if the bank stands or takes a card.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The higher of the 2 hands wins. Winning bets on the banker payout nineteen to Twenty (equal cash minus a five percent rake. The Rake is recorded and paid off once you leave the table so make sure you have cash left before you quit). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning wagers for tie typically pay 8 to 1 but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as a tie occurs less than one in every ten rounds. Avoid betting on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 versus 8 to 1)

Wagered on properly baccarat chemin de fer offers pretty decent odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Punto Banco Course of Action

As with all games punto banco has a handful of established misunderstandings. One of which is the same as a myth in roulette. The past isn’t a prophecy of future events. Recording past results on a chart is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper desires.

The most common and likely the most favorable course of action is the 1-3-2-6 method. This method is deployed to pump up earnings and minimizing losses.

Start by placing 1 chip. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the game table for a sum total of three units on the second bet. If you succeed you will hold six on the game table, subtract four so you have two on the third round. Should you win the 3rd bet, add 2 on the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th bet.

Should you do not win on the initial wager, you take a hit of 1. A profit on the 1st wager followed by a hit on the 2nd creates a loss of two. Wins on the initial two with a loss on the third provides you with a gain of 2. And success on the 1st three with a hit on the 4th means you are even. Winning all four wagers gives you with 12, a profit of ten. This means you can give up the second round five times for each successful streak of 4 wagers and in the end, balance the books.
