Punto Banco Rules and Plan

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Principles

Punto banco is bet on with 8 decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards valued less than 10 are worth their printed number while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is one. Bets are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not really people; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for every hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the first number is ignored. For instance, a hand of 5 and 6 has a score of 1 (five plus 6 = eleven; ditch the first ‘1′).

A third card may be given using the rules below:

- If the player or banker gets a score of eight or 9, both players stay.

- If the player has less than 5, she takes a card. Players holds otherwise.

- If the gambler stands, the house takes a card on a total less than 5. If the gambler takes a card, a guide is employed to see if the bank holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The higher of the 2 hands wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay out 19:20 (even money less a 5% rake. The Rake is tracked and paid off when you quit the table so be sure to have money remaining just before you depart). Winning bets on the player pays 1:1. Winning wagers for tie frequently pays eight to one but sometimes 9:1. (This is a bad bet as a tie occurs lower than one in every ten hands. Be cautious of betting on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 versus 8:1)

Bet on properly baccarat gives relatively decent odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Course of Action

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has a few general myths. One of which is similar to a absurdity in roulette. The past is not an indicator of events about to happen. Tracking previous outcomes on a sheet of paper is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most familiar and possibly the most successful plan is the one, three, two, six tactic. This technique is used to maximize earnings and minimizing risk.

Begin by betting 1 dollar. If you win, add another to the two on the game table for a grand total of 3 units on the second bet. If you win you will now have six on the table, take away four so you are left with two on the third round. Should you succeed on the third bet, add two on the 4 on the table for a total of six on the fourth round.

If you do not win on the 1st wager, you take a hit of 1. A win on the initial round followed by a loss on the second brings about a hit of two. Success on the initial two with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a take of two. And success on the first three with a defeat on the 4th means you balance the books. Succeeding at all four rounds leaves you with twelve, a take of ten. This means you will be able to not win on the second bet five times for each favorable run of 4 rounds and still break even.
