Baccarat Chemin de Fer Regulations and Plan

[ English ]

Baccarat Standards

Punto banco is gambled on with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards under ten are valued at face value while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is 1. Bets are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The score for every hand is the sum of the two cards, although the beginning digit is dumped. e.g., a hand of 5 and six has a score of one (five plus six equals eleven; ditch the first ‘one’).

A additional card could be dealt using the rules below:

- If the player or banker gets a total of eight or nine, the two players stay.

- If the gambler has 5 or less, she takes a card. Players otherwise hold.

- If the gambler stands, the house hits on a total less than five. If the player hits, a guide is used to decide if the banker stays or takes a card.

Punto Banco Odds

The larger of the two totals wins. Winning bets on the house pay out nineteen to Twenty (even payout minus a five percent commission. The Rake is recorded and cleared out when you leave the game so make sure you still have funds around just before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning wagers for tie frequently pays 8 to 1 but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a poor wager as ties happen lower than one in every 10 hands. Be wary of wagering on a tie. However odds are astonishingly greater for 9:1 versus eight to one)

Played correctly punto banco offers fairly decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has some common myths. One of which is similar to a myth in roulette. The past isn’t a harbinger of events yet to happen. Keeping score of previous outcomes on a sheet of paper is a poor use of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary desires.

The most accepted and likely the most accomplished method is the one-three-two-six tactic. This plan is employed to maximize profits and limit losses.

Begin by betting 1 chip. If you win, add another to the 2 on the table for a sum of three dollars on the second bet. Should you succeed you will retain 6 on the table, pull off 4 so you are left with 2 on the third wager. If you win the 3rd wager, add 2 to the four on the game table for a total of six on the 4th round.

Should you do not win on the initial round, you take a hit of one. A win on the initial round followed by a hit on the second causes a loss of two. Success on the first 2 with a loss on the third provides you with a gain of two. And success on the first 3 with a defeat on the fourth means you break even. Winning all four wagers leaves you with twelve, a take of ten. This means you can give up the second wager five times for every successful run of 4 bets and still are even.
