Baccarat Banque Codes

Baccarat banque is played with eight decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards under 10 are valued at face value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is one. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The value for each hand is the sum total of the 2 cards, however the first number is dumped. e.g., a hand of 5 and six has a value of one (five plus six = eleven; ignore the initial ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be dealt using the following rules:

- If the gambler or banker has a score of 8 or 9, the two players hold.

- If the player has 5 or less, she hits. Players otherwise stand.

- If the gambler holds, the house hits on 5 or lower. If the gambler hits, a guide is used to see if the bank holds or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The bigger of the two totals wins. Winning bets on the banker payout 19 to 20 (even payout less a five percent commission. Commission are tracked and cleared out once you depart the table so make sure you still have funds around before you depart). Winning wagers on the player pays out at 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie usually pays 8 to 1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is a awful wager as a tie occurs less than 1 in every 10 rounds. Avoid betting on a tie. Although odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 vs. 8:1)

Gambled on properly baccarat offers relatively decent odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has some common misconceptions. One of which is close to a myth in roulette. The past isn’t a prophecy of future outcomes. Recording previous results on a sheet of paper is a bad use of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our paper desires.

The most accepted and likely the most successful course of action is the 1-3-2-6 tactic. This tactic is used to maximize profits and limit risk.

Begin by betting 1 chip. If you succeed, add one more to the 2 on the table for a grand total of three chips on the second bet. If you succeed you will have 6 on the table, pull off 4 so you keep two on the 3rd bet. Should you win the 3rd wager, deposit 2 on the four on the table for a sum total of six on the fourth round.

If you lose on the initial bet, you take a loss of one. A win on the initial wager followed by a loss on the 2nd brings about a hit of two. Wins on the 1st 2 with a defeat on the third gives you with a take of 2. And wins on the first three with a loss on the fourth means you break even. Succeeding at all 4 rounds gives you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you can not win on the second round 5 instances for each favorable streak of 4 bets and in the end, balance the books.
