Punto Banco Standards

Punto banco is wagered on with 8 decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards under ten are worth their printed value while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is 1. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t really people; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘house’ and ‘gambler’. The value for each hand is the sum total of the two cards, although the first digit is dumped. For instance, a hand of five and six has a score of one (five plus six equals 11; ditch the 1st ‘1′).

A third card may be given out using the following rules:

- If the gambler or house gets a total of 8 or 9, the two players hold.

- If the player has 5 or lower, he hits. Players otherwise hold.

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

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The larger of the 2 scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay out 19:20 (even payout less a 5 percent rake. The Rake is tracked and cleared out once you leave the game so be sure to have cash left before you quit). Winning wagers on the gambler pay 1:1. Winning wagers for tie typically pays 8:1 but occasionally nine to one. (This is a awful bet as ties happen less than 1 in every ten hands. Avoid gambling on a tie. Although odds are substantially better for nine to one versus 8:1)

Wagered on correctly punto banco gives relatively good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Banque Method

As with all games Baccarat has a handful of common misconceptions. One of which is close to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past isn’t a fore-teller of future events. Tracking past outcomes on a chart is a poor use of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our paper desires.

The most accepted and definitely the most successful strategy is the one-three-two-six technique. This tactic is employed to pump up winnings and limit risk.

Start by betting 1 chip. If you win, add one more to the two on the game table for a sum total of 3 chips on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, remove 4 so you have 2 on the 3rd bet. If you win the third wager, put down two on the 4 on the table for a total of six on the 4th wager.

Should you lose on the 1st bet, you take a hit of one. A win on the initial bet followed by a loss on the 2nd brings about a loss of two. Success on the initial 2 with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a profit of two. And success on the 1st three with a hit on the 4th means you break even. Succeeding at all 4 wagers gives you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you will be able to give up the second bet 5 times for each favorable streak of four wagers and still break even.
