Punto Banco Rules and Method

[ English ]

Baccarat Banque Codes

Baccarat chemin de fer is bet on with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards valued less than 10 are counted at face value while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The score for each hand is the sum of the two cards, but the beginning digit is dumped. e.g., a hand of five and 6 has a score of one (five plus 6 equals eleven; drop the initial ‘one’).

A third card may be given using the rules below:

- If the gambler or banker achieves a value of 8 or 9, the two players hold.

- If the gambler has five or less, he hits. Players holds otherwise.

- If the player stays, the bank hits on a value less than five. If the player hits, a table is used to decide if the banker holds or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the two hands wins. Winning bets on the bank pay out 19:20 (even money minus a 5 percent commission. Commission are recorded and cleared out when you depart the table so ensure you still have cash left over before you head out). Winning bets on the gambler pays out at 1 to 1. Winning wagers for a tie frequently pays eight to one but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as ties happen less than 1 in every ten hands. Avoid betting on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for nine to one versus eight to one)

Gambled on properly baccarat offers fairly good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Method

As with all games punto banco has a handful of general false impressions. One of which is the same as a misunderstanding in roulette. The past isn’t an indicator of future events. Recording past outcomes on a chart is a waste of paper and an affront to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most familiar and almost certainly the most acknowledged plan is the one, three, two, six plan. This method is used to pump up profits and limit losses.

Begin by placing 1 unit. If you win, add another to the two on the table for a grand total of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you succeed you will have six on the game table, take away 4 so you are left with two on the 3rd bet. If you come away with a win on the 3rd round, deposit two to the four on the table for a grand total of 6 on the fourth wager.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you take a hit of 1. A profit on the 1st bet followed by a hit on the second creates a hit of two. Success on the first 2 with a defeat on the third provides you with a gain of 2. And wins on the 1st 3 with a loss on the 4th means you are even. Winning at all 4 bets gives you with 12, a take of 10. This means you will be able to give up the second round 5 instances for every favorable streak of four rounds and still experience no loss.
