Punto Banco Regulations

Baccarat chemin de fer is bet on with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards under 10 are valued at face value while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is one. Bets are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not really people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The value for every hand is the sum total of the cards, although the first digit is dropped. For instance, a hand of 5 and six has a total of 1 (5 plus 6 equals eleven; drop the 1st ‘1′).

A 3rd card may be dealt based on the following rules:

- If the player or bank has a total of eight or 9, both players stay.

- If the player has five or lower, he takes a card. Players holds otherwise.

- If the player holds, the banker hits on a total less than five. If the gambler hits, a guide is used to determine if the bank stays or takes a card.

Punto Banco Odds

The bigger of the 2 scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay out 19 to 20 (equal cash minus a 5 percent commission. The Rake is tracked and cleared out once you depart the game so ensure you have cash left over before you head out). Winning wagers on the player pay 1:1. Winning wagers for tie normally pay eight to one but sometimes nine to one. (This is a poor bet as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every 10 hands. Be wary of wagering on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9:1 versus 8 to 1)

Wagered on correctly punto banco offers generally good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Punto Banco Method

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has some familiar misconceptions. One of which is close to a misconception in roulette. The past is not a prophecy of events yet to happen. Tracking past results on a page of paper is a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our paper desires.

The most familiar and definitely the most favorable plan is the 1-3-2-6 plan. This tactic is employed to pump up profits and limit risk.

Start by placing 1 chip. If you win, add another to the two on the game table for a total of three dollars on the second bet. Should you succeed you will now have six on the game table, pull off four so you are left with 2 on the third wager. Should you win the 3rd bet, put down 2 to the four on the game table for a total of six on the 4th wager.

Should you don’t win on the first bet, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the first bet followed by a loss on the second brings about a hit of 2. Success on the initial two with a hit on the third provides you with a gain of two. And success on the initial three with a defeat on the fourth means you experience no loss. Succeeding at all four wagers gives you with 12, a profit of ten. This means you will be able to not win on the 2nd wager five times for each successful streak of four bets and in the end, experience no loss.
