Baccarat Banque Regulations and Method

Punto Banco Policies

Baccarat is wagered on with 8 decks in a dealing shoe. Cards below ten are valued at face value while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The score for every hand is the sum of the cards, however the beginning digit is dropped. e.g., a hand of five and 6 has a total of 1 (5 plus 6 equals eleven; dump the initial ‘one’).

A third card may be given out using the rules below:

- If the player or house has a score of eight or 9, the two players stand.

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

- If the player holds, the banker hits on 5 or less. If the player hits, a chart is used to determine if the banker stands or hits.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The bigger of the two scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay out nineteen to Twenty (equal cash less a five percent rake. The Rake is tracked and cleared out once you quit the table so be sure to have cash left over before you leave). Winning bets on the gambler pays 1 to 1. Winning wagers for a tie typically pays out at 8 to 1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a bad wager as a tie occurs less than 1 in every 10 rounds. Be cautious of putting money on a tie. However odds are astonishingly greater for 9 to 1 versus eight to one)

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

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Strategy

As with all games Baccarat has a few accepted false impressions. One of which is the same as a absurdity in roulette. The past is not an indicator of events yet to happen. Keeping score of previous outcomes at a table is a bad use of paper and an affront to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most familiar and probably the most favorable method is the 1-3-2-6 method. This technique is used to maximize profits and limit losses.

Begin by betting 1 dollar. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the game table for a grand total of three dollars on the second bet. If you succeed you will now have 6 on the table, remove 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd round. If you win the 3rd bet, add 2 on the four on the game table for a grand total of six on the fourth bet.

Should you don’t win on the first round, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st wager followed by a hit on the 2nd causes a hit of two. Success on the first two with a loss on the third provides you with a take of 2. And wins on the 1st three with a hit on the fourth means you experience no loss. Succeeding at all four bets leaves you with 12, a gain of ten. This means you are able to give up the 2nd bet 5 times for every favorable run of four rounds and still are even.
