Baccarat Policies

Punto banco is bet on with eight decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards valued less than ten are counted at their printed value while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is one. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The total for every hand is the sum total of the 2 cards, although the beginning number is ignored. For instance, a hand of 5 and six has a score of one (5 plus 6 = 11; ditch the initial ‘1′).

A additional card may be given out using the rules below:

- If the gambler or bank has a total of eight or nine, both players stay.

- If the player has five or less, she hits. Players otherwise hold.

- If the player stays, the bank hits on a value lower than five. If the gambler takes a card, a chart is used to figure out if the house holds or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The greater of the two scores wins. Winning bets on the house pay out 19:20 (even payout minus a five percent rake. Commission are recorded and paid off once you quit the game so ensure you have funds left just before you leave). Winning bets on the gambler pays 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie usually pays 8:1 but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a bad wager as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every ten hands. Avoid betting on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 vs. 8 to 1)

Played properly punto banco offers fairly decent odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Method

As with all games punto banco has some common myths. One of which is the same as a false impression in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of events about to happen. Recording previous outcomes on a chart is a bad 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 strategy is the 1-3-2-6 technique. This plan is employed to build up earnings and limit losses.

Start by placing one dollar. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the game table for a sum of 3 units on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the table, remove four so you have 2 on the 3rd round. Should you come away with a win on the 3rd round, put down 2 to the 4 on the game table for a total of six on the 4th round.

If you lose on the initial wager, you take a hit of one. A win on the 1st wager followed by a hit on the second brings about a hit of 2. Success on the first two with a hit on the 3rd provides you with a take of 2. And wins on the initial three with a defeat on the 4th means you break even. Succeeding at all four wagers leaves you with twelve, a gain of ten. This means you can not win on the 2nd wager five times for every favorable run of four rounds and still experience no loss.
