Punto Banco Rules and Scheme

Baccarat Policies

Baccarat banque is played with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards under 10 are valued at their printed number and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is one. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The total for every hand is the sum of the 2 cards, however the beginning digit is dumped. e.g., a hand of 5 and six has a value of 1 (5 plus six equals eleven; ignore the initial ‘one’).

A 3rd card will be given out based on the following rules:

- If the gambler or bank has a score of eight or 9, both players hold.

- If the player has less than 5, she hits. Players otherwise stay.

- If the gambler stands, the house hits on five or less. If the gambler takes a card, a table is employed to decide if the bank stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 totals wins. Winning wagers on the bank pay out 19 to 20 (equal money minus a 5 percent rake. Commission are recorded and cleared out when you depart the game so be sure to have cash left over just before you head out). Winning bets on the player pays out at 1 to 1. Winning bets for a tie typically pays eight to one but sometimes 9:1. (This is a bad bet as ties happen less than one in every ten rounds. Avoid wagering on a tie. Although odds are substantially better for 9:1 versus eight to one)

Gambled on properly baccarat banque gives pretty good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Banque Course of Action

As with all games Baccarat has some familiar misconceptions. One of which is the same as a misunderstanding in roulette. The past is not a prophecy of events about to happen. Recording previous outcomes on a chart is a poor use of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most established and almost certainly the most successful strategy is the one, three, two, six plan. This tactic is employed to build up earnings and limit losses.

Begin by betting 1 unit. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a grand total of three chips on the second bet. Should you succeed you will hold 6 on the game table, subtract four so you are left with two on the third bet. If you come away with a win on the third bet, put down 2 to the four on the game table for a grand total of six on the fourth wager.

If you lose on the first bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed by a loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of two. Wins on the 1st 2 with a defeat on the 3rd provides you with a take of 2. And success on the first three with a hit on the fourth means you break even. Winning at all 4 bets leaves you with twelve, a gain of ten. This means you are able to give up the second bet five instances for each successful streak of 4 bets and still balance the books.
