Punto Banco Practices and Method

[ English ]

Baccarat Rules

Punto banco is wagered on with eight decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards below ten are counted at their printed number while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is 1. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The score for every hand is the total of the cards, however the 1st digit is dropped. For instance, a hand of five and 6 has a total of 1 (5 plus 6 = eleven; ditch the first ‘1′).

A third card will be given using the following rules:

- If the player or banker gets a value of eight or 9, both players hold.

- If the player has 5 or lower, he takes a card. Players otherwise stay.

- If the player stands, the banker takes a card on 5 or less. If the gambler takes a card, a table is employed to see if the banker stands or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The bigger of the 2 hands wins. Winning wagers on the bank pay out 19:20 (even payout less a 5 percent commission. Commission are kept track of and paid off once you leave the table so ensure you have cash left over before you leave). Winning wagers on the gambler pays out at 1 to 1. Winning wagers for a tie normally pay 8:1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is a awful bet as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every 10 hands. Be cautious of betting on a tie. However odds are astonishingly greater for nine to one versus eight to one)

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

Baccarat Banque Strategy

As with all games baccarat banque has some general myths. One of which is similar to a myth in roulette. The past is not a prophecy of future outcomes. Keeping track of previous results at a table is a waste of paper and an affront to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper desires.

The most accepted and definitely the most acknowledged course of action is the 1-3-2-6 plan. This technique is used to pump up winnings and limit losses.

Start by betting one dollar. If you win, add another to the two on the game table for a grand total of 3 units on the second bet. If you succeed you will hold six on the table, subtract four so you have two on the third wager. If you succeed on the 3rd round, put down two on the 4 on the game table for a sum total of 6 on the 4th round.

Should you lose on the initial bet, you take a loss of one. A profit on the first wager followed by a hit on the second causes a hit of two. Success on the first two with a defeat on the third provides you with a take of two. And success on the initial three with a defeat on the 4th means you break even. Winning at all four rounds leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you are able to squander the second wager 5 instances for each successful run of four rounds and still experience no loss.
