Punto Banco Regulations and Method

Punto Banco Principles

Baccarat chemin de fer is gambled on with eight decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards under ten are counted at their printed value while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they simply represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand is the total of the 2 cards, although the first digit is ignored. For example, a hand of 5 and six has a value of one (five plus six equals eleven; ditch the 1st ‘1′).

A third card can be dealt using the following rules:

- If the player or house gets a total of eight or 9, the two players stand.

- If the gambler has less than 5, he takes a card. Players stays otherwise.

- If the gambler holds, the banker hits on 5 or less. If the gambler takes a card, a guide is used to figure out if the bank stands or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The greater of the 2 hands wins. Winning wagers on the bank pay out nineteen to Twenty (even payout minus a 5% rake. The Rake is tracked and cleared out once you leave the game so make sure you still have cash around just before you head out). Winning bets on the gambler pays 1:1. Winning bets for a tie normally pays 8 to 1 but occasionally nine to one. (This is a awful bet as ties happen lower than 1 in every ten rounds. Be wary of gambling on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for 9:1 versus 8:1)

Bet on properly baccarat offers relatively good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Strategy

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has a few accepted false impressions. One of which is the same as a false impression in roulette. The past isn’t an indicator of future outcomes. Keeping score of previous results on a chart is a bad use of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most established and possibly the most acknowledged course of action is the one, three, two, six technique. This technique is employed to pump up earnings and limit risk.

Begin by placing one chip. If you succeed, add another to the two on the table for a grand total of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you win you will retain 6 on the game table, take away four so you are left with 2 on the third wager. If you win the third bet, deposit two on the four on the game table for a sum total of six on the 4th wager.

Should you don’t win on the 1st bet, you take a hit of one. A win on the 1st wager followed by a loss on the second creates a loss of two. Wins on the initial two with a hit on the third gives you with a take of two. And wins on the initial 3 with a loss on the fourth means you balance the books. Succeeding at all 4 wagers gives you with twelve, a gain of 10. This means you can give up the 2nd round 5 times for each favorable run of 4 bets and still break even.
