Baccarat Banque Regulations

Baccarat chemin de fer is gambled on with 8 decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards under 10 are valued at face value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The value for each hand is the total of the 2 cards, although the 1st number is ignored. e.g., a hand of five and 6 has a value of one (five plus six = eleven; ditch the initial ‘one’).

A 3rd card could be given out using the following rules:

- If the player or bank gets a score of 8 or nine, both players stay.

- If the gambler has less than 5, she hits. Players stands otherwise.

- If the gambler stands, the banker hits on a value lower than five. If the gambler hits, a table is used to figure out if the banker holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Odds

The greater of the 2 scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker payout 19 to 20 (equal money less a five percent commission. The Rake is kept track of and cleared out once you depart the game so make sure you still have money around before you leave). Winning bets on the gambler pays out at 1:1. Winning wagers for tie usually pays eight to one but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as a tie occurs less than 1 in every ten rounds. Be wary of putting money on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

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

Punto Banco Scheme

As with all games punto banco has some accepted myths. One of which is similar to a absurdity in roulette. The past is not a prophecy of future events. Tracking past results on a chart is a poor use of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary desires.

The most common and definitely the most favorable scheme is the 1-3-2-6 technique. This technique is used to pump up profits and minimizing risk.

Start by wagering 1 unit. If you succeed, add 1 more to the 2 on the game table for a grand total of 3 chips on the second bet. Should you win you will retain six on the table, take away four so you have two on the 3rd wager. Should you come away with a win on the 3rd bet, add two on the 4 on the table for a total of six on the fourth bet.

Should you don’t win on the 1st bet, you take a loss of one. A win on the first wager followed by a hit on the 2nd brings about a hit of two. Success on the first 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you with a gain of two. And success on the first three with a defeat on the fourth means you balance the books. Winning at all 4 wagers leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you can squander the second wager five times for each favorable run of four bets and in the end, balance the books.
