Punto Banco Rules and Method

[ English ]

Baccarat Rules

Baccarat banque is played with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards below 10 are counted at their printed value while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is one. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they simply represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The score for every hand is the sum total of the cards, but the first digit is dropped. e.g., a hand of 5 and six has a value of 1 (5 plus six equals 11; ignore the initial ‘1′).

A 3rd card will be given using the following rules:

- If the gambler or bank gets a score of 8 or 9, both players stay.

- If the player has 5 or less, she takes a card. Players stands otherwise.

- If the gambler stays, the banker takes a card on 5 or less. If the gambler takes a card, a chart is used to figure out if the banker holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The larger of the 2 hands wins. Winning bets on the house pay out 19 to 20 (equal cash less a five percent commission. Commission are recorded and cleared out when you quit the table so be sure to have cash left over just before you leave). Winning bets on the gambler pay 1:1. Winning wagers for a tie normally pays eight to one but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as a tie occurs less than one in every ten rounds. Be cautious of gambling on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for 9 to 1 versus 8 to 1)

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

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Strategy

As with all games punto banco has some established false impressions. One of which is the same as a absurdity in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of events yet to happen. Recording past results at a table is a poor use of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our stationary desires.

The most accepted and likely the most accomplished strategy is the 1-3-2-6 technique. This plan is used to pump up earnings and limit losses.

Start by betting 1 dollar. If you succeed, add another to the two on the table for a grand total of three chips on the second bet. If you succeed you will now have 6 on the game table, subtract 4 so you are left with 2 on the 3rd bet. Should you come away with a win on the 3rd bet, put down 2 on the 4 on the table for a total of six on the fourth bet.

If you don’t win on the 1st round, you take a hit of one. A win on the initial bet followed by a loss on the second causes a hit of two. Success on the first 2 with a hit on the 3rd gives you with a profit of two. And success on the initial three with a hit on the 4th means you break even. Winning all four wagers gives you with twelve, a take of ten. This means you will be able to squander the 2nd round five instances for each successful streak of 4 wagers and in the end, are even.
