Baccarat Policies and Method

Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat banque is played with 8 decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards valued less than ten are counted at their printed number and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Bets are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The total for each hand is the sum total of the cards, but the 1st digit is dumped. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a score of one (five plus six equals eleven; ditch the first ‘1′).

A third card can be given depending on the rules below:

- If the gambler or banker gets a score of eight or 9, the two players stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, she takes a card. Players otherwise stand.

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

Baccarat Odds

The better of the 2 hands wins. Winning wagers on the house payout 19 to 20 (equal cash minus a five percent rake. The Rake is kept track of and paid off when you quit the table so make sure you have funds left over before you head out). Winning wagers on the player pay 1:1. Winning wagers for a tie usually pays 8:1 but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a poor wager as a tie occurs lower than one in every 10 hands. Avoid betting on a tie. Although odds are substantially greater for 9 to 1 vs. 8:1)

Gambled on properly punto banco provides generally decent odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Course of Action

As with all games punto banco has quite a few general misconceptions. One of which is close to a absurdity in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of events yet to happen. Keeping score of previous results on a chart is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and almost certainly the most accomplished strategy is the 1-3-2-6 tactic. This technique is deployed to maximize earnings and limit risk.

Begin by betting 1 unit. If you succeed, add another to the 2 on the game table for a total of three chips on the second bet. If you win you will now have 6 on the table, take away four so you have two on the third round. If you come away with a win on the third wager, add 2 on the 4 on the table for a total of 6 on the 4th bet.

Should you do not win on the initial round, you take a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed by a hit on the 2nd creates a hit of two. Success on the first two with a defeat on the third provides you with a profit of 2. And wins on the initial three with a hit on the fourth means you break even. Winning all four bets leaves you with 12, a gain of 10. This means you can not win on the second bet 5 times for each favorable run of 4 bets and in the end, break even.
