Baccarat Banque Policies

Baccarat banque is played with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards valued less than 10 are worth face value and with Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is one. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not really people; they just represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The score for each hand is the sum of the cards, although the first number is dropped. For example, a hand of five and six has a value of one (5 plus 6 equals 11; ignore the first ‘1′).

A additional card may be dealt based on the rules below:

- If the player or banker achieves a total of eight or nine, both players hold.

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

- If the player holds, the bank hits on a value lower than 5. If the player takes a card, a guide is used to determine if the house stands or takes a card.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The greater of the two hands wins. Winning bets on the banker pay out nineteen to Twenty (even money less a 5% rake. Commission are recorded and cleared out once you leave the game so be sure to still have cash around before you depart). Winning bets on the player pays 1 to 1. Winning wagers for tie usually pays out at 8:1 but on occasion 9:1. (This is a poor bet as ties happen less than one in every 10 rounds. Avoid putting money on a tie. Although odds are substantially greater for 9 to 1 versus eight to one)

Gambled on properly punto banco gives fairly decent odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Punto Banco Scheme

As with all games baccarat banque has a handful of familiar false impressions. One of which is similar to a absurdity in roulette. The past is not a prophecy of future events. Tracking past results at a table is a bad use of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper needs.

The most familiar and possibly the most accomplished scheme is the one-three-two-six method. This plan is deployed to maximize earnings and minimizing risk.

Start by betting one dollar. If you win, add another to the 2 on the table for a total of three units on the second bet. Should you succeed you will now have six on the game table, pull off 4 so you are left with two on the third round. Should you come away with a win on the 3rd wager, add two on the four on the game table for a total of 6 on the fourth bet.

If you do not win on the initial bet, you take a hit of 1. A win on the first wager followed by a hit on the 2nd creates a loss of 2. Wins on the initial 2 with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a profit of two. And wins on the 1st three with a loss on the 4th means you break even. Succeeding at all four bets leaves you with 12, a gain of 10. This means you can not win on the second bet five instances for each favorable run of four rounds and still are even.
