Baccarat Regulations and Scheme

Baccarat Banque Codes

Baccarat is gambled on with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards below ten are counted at their printed value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is one. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t 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 score for every hand is the sum of the two cards, but the 1st digit is discarded. e.g., a hand of 5 and 6 has a value of 1 (five plus 6 = 11; ditch the first ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be given based on the rules below:

- If the gambler or banker has a total of eight or 9, the two players hold.

- If the player has five or lower, he takes a card. Players otherwise stand.

- If the gambler stays, the bank takes a card on 5 or lower. If the player takes a card, a guide is used to figure out if the bank holds or takes a card.

Punto Banco Odds

The larger of the 2 scores wins. Winning bets on the bank pay out 19:20 (even money less a 5% commission. The Rake is kept track of and paid off when you leave the game so ensure you have money around before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winning wagers for a tie normally pay 8 to 1 but sometimes 9:1. (This is a bad wager as ties occur lower than 1 in every 10 rounds. Be cautious of gambling on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 versus eight to one)

Gambled on correctly baccarat banque gives pretty good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games Baccarat has a handful of general false impressions. One of which is close to a absurdity in roulette. The past is not a prophecy of future events. Keeping track of previous results at a table is a bad use of paper and an affront to the tree that gave its life for our stationary desires.

The most established and almost certainly the most successful course of action is the 1-3-2-6 tactic. This plan is deployed to maximize profits and minimizing risk.

Start by betting 1 chip. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the game table for a total of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you succeed you will hold 6 on the game table, subtract 4 so you have 2 on the third round. Should you come away with a win on the third bet, add 2 to the 4 on the table for a total of six on the fourth bet.

If you don’t win on the first wager, you take a hit of one. A win on the initial wager followed by a loss on the second brings about a loss of 2. Success on the initial two with a hit on the third gives you with a gain of two. And success on the initial three with a hit on the 4th means you break even. Winning all 4 rounds leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you will be able to squander the second wager 5 times for each favorable run of 4 rounds and in the end, are even.
