Punto Banco Rules and Plan

Punto Banco Rules

Baccarat banque is enjoyed with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards valued less than 10 are valued at face value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not actual people; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The score for every hand is the sum of the cards, however the first digit is discarded. For instance, a hand of 5 and six has a total of 1 (five plus 6 equals eleven; ignore the initial ‘one’).

A third card may be dealt using the rules below:

- If the player or bank gets a score of eight or nine, both players stay.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, he hits. Players holds otherwise.

- If the gambler stands, the house takes a card on a value less than five. If the player hits, a chart is used to decide if the house holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores wins. Winning wagers on the bank pay out 19:20 (even payout less a 5 percent rake. The Rake is tracked and paid off when you quit the game so ensure you still have funds around just before you depart). Winning wagers on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning wagers for tie usually pay 8:1 but on occasion 9:1. (This is a bad wager as ties happen less than one in every 10 hands. Avoid betting on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly better for 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

Bet on properly punto banco offers fairly good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Method

As with all games baccarat banque has a handful of general misconceptions. One of which is close to a misconception in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of events yet to happen. Recording past results on a chart is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that gave its life for our paper desires.

The most accepted and possibly the most favorable scheme is the 1-3-2-6 technique. This tactic is deployed to maximize profits and minimizing risk.

Begin by wagering 1 chip. If you succeed, add one more to the 2 on the game table for a sum of three dollars on the second bet. Should you win you will retain 6 on the table, remove 4 so you are left with 2 on the third round. If you succeed on the third bet, put down two on the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the fourth round.

If you lose on the initial bet, you take a hit of 1. A profit on the initial wager followed by a hit on the second brings about a hit of two. Success on the 1st 2 with a defeat on the third gives you with a take of two. And wins on the initial 3 with a defeat on the 4th means you are even. Winning at all 4 bets gives you with twelve, a take of ten. This means you will be able to lose the 2nd round five instances for each successful streak of four bets and still are even.
