Baccarat Banque Practices and Strategy

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Rules

Baccarat is bet on with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards valued less than 10 are valued at their printed value 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 really people; they simply represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘house’ and ‘gambler’. The total for each hand is the sum of the 2 cards, however the beginning digit is discarded. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a score of one (5 plus six = 11; dump the initial ‘1′).

A third card can be dealt based on the following rules:

- If the player or house gets a score of 8 or nine, both players stand.

- If the player has 5 or less, he hits. Players stands otherwise.

- If the player holds, the house hits on a value lower than 5. If the player takes a card, a chart is employed to decide if the banker holds or hits.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The better of the two totals wins. Winning bets on the bank pay out nineteen to Twenty (equal cash minus a 5 percent rake. The Rake is kept track of and cleared out once you depart the game so make sure you still have money left just before you depart). Winning wagers on the gambler pay 1:1. Winning wagers for a tie usually pay eight to one but sometimes nine to one. (This is a poor bet as a tie occurs less than 1 in every ten hands. Be wary of betting on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for 9:1 vs. 8 to 1)

Played correctly punto banco gives generally decent odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Banque Strategy

As with all games punto banco has a few accepted misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a misconception in roulette. The past isn’t a prophecy of events yet to happen. Keeping track of past outcomes on a page of paper is a poor use of paper and an affront to the tree that was cut down for our stationary needs.

The most established and possibly the most acknowledged strategy is the one-three-two-six technique. This technique is employed to build up earnings and minimizing losses.

Start by wagering one unit. If you succeed, add another to the 2 on the table for a sum of three chips on the second bet. If you succeed you will retain 6 on the game table, take away 4 so you keep two on the 3rd bet. Should you win the 3rd round, put down two to the four on the game table for a sum total of 6 on the fourth bet.

Should you don’t win on the 1st bet, you take a hit of one. A win on the first round followed by a loss on the second causes a loss of two. Success on the first two with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a profit of two. And success on the first three with a defeat on the 4th means you break even. Winning at all 4 wagers leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you will be able to lose the 2nd round 5 times for each successful streak of 4 rounds and in the end, experience no loss.
