Baccarat Banque Practices and Method

Punto Banco Policies

Baccarat chemin de fer is played with eight decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards below 10 are counted at their printed value while at the same time 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 really people; they simply represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The value for every hand is the sum total of the cards, however the beginning digit is discarded. For example, a hand of 5 and six has a score of one (five plus six equals 11; ditch the first ‘1′).

A third card might be dealt using the following rules:

- If the gambler or house has a score of 8 or nine, both players stand.

- If the player has five or less, she takes a card. Players otherwise stand.

- If the gambler stands, the house hits on a total less than 5. If the player takes a card, a table is used to see if the banker stands or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The better of the two hands wins. Winning bets on the house payout 19 to 20 (even money minus a five percent commission. The Rake is tracked and paid off once you leave the game so make sure you still have money around just before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie frequently pays 8:1 but sometimes 9:1. (This is a poor wager as a tie occurs lower than one in every 10 rounds. Be cautious of wagering on a tie. However odds are substantially better for nine to one vs. 8:1)

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

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Strategy

As with all games baccarat banque has a few established misunderstandings. One of which is the same as a absurdity in roulette. The past isn’t a harbinger of future events. Tracking previous outcomes on a chart is a bad use of paper and an affront to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper desires.

The most established and likely the most acknowledged course of action is the 1-3-2-6 method. This tactic is employed to build up winnings and minimizing losses.

Start by placing one dollar. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of 3 chips on the second bet. Should you win you will hold six on the table, pull off four so you keep 2 on the 3rd round. If you succeed on the 3rd round, deposit 2 on the four on the game table for a total of six on the fourth round.

Should you do not win on the 1st wager, you take a hit of 1. A win on the first wager followed by a hit on the second brings about a loss of 2. Success on the initial two with a hit on the third provides you with a profit of 2. And success on the first 3 with a hit on the fourth means you balance the books. Winning at all four rounds leaves you with 12, a take of ten. This means you can not win on the 2nd bet five times for every successful run of 4 bets and still experience no loss.
