Punto Banco Policies and Strategy

Baccarat Banque Regulations

Baccarat is enjoyed with 8 decks in a dealing shoe. Cards below 10 are valued at face value while at the same time 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 just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘house’ and ‘gambler’. The value for every hand is the total of the 2 cards, although the 1st number is ignored. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a score of 1 (five plus six = eleven; ditch the initial ‘1′).

A third card could be dealt using the following rules:

- If the gambler or house has a value of eight or 9, both players stand.

- If the player has less than five, he takes a card. Players otherwise hold.

- If the gambler stays, the bank hits on a total less than 5. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to figure out if the house stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The greater of the 2 scores wins. Winning wagers on the bank pay out 19:20 (equal cash minus a five percent commission. The Rake is recorded and paid off once you depart the game so be sure to still have cash left before you head out). Winning wagers on the gambler pays out at one to one. Winning wagers for a tie frequently pays 8 to 1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a awful wager as ties occur lower than one in every ten hands. Be cautious of putting money on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9:1 vs. 8:1)

Bet on properly baccarat provides generally decent odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Banque Method

As with all games punto banco has some common misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a misconception in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of events about to happen. Tracking past results on a page of paper is a poor use of paper and a snub to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and almost certainly the most acknowledged course of action is the 1-3-2-6 plan. This method is used to pump up earnings and limit risk.

Begin by betting one chip. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a sum of three dollars on the second bet. If you win you will now have 6 on the table, subtract 4 so you have two on the 3rd wager. Should you come away with a win on the 3rd bet, deposit 2 to the four on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th round.

If you do not win on the first round, you take a hit of 1. A win on the first wager followed by a loss on the 2nd causes a hit of two. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third provides you with a profit of two. And wins on the 1st 3 with a defeat on the fourth means you experience no loss. Succeeding at all 4 rounds gives you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you will be able to lose the 2nd wager five instances for every favorable run of 4 wagers and still break even.
