Punto Banco Regulations

Baccarat banque is gambled on with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards under ten are worth their printed value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The value for every hand is the sum total of the two cards, but the beginning digit is ignored. e.g., a hand of five and six has a score of 1 (five plus six = eleven; ignore the initial ‘one’).

A additional card might be given out based on the rules below:

- If the player or house gets a total of eight or 9, both players hold.

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

- If the player stays, the bank takes a card on 5 or less. If the player hits, a guide is employed to decide if the house holds or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The higher of the two totals wins. Winning wagers on the banker payout 19:20 (equal money less a 5 percent rake. Commission are tracked and paid off once you depart the table so make sure you have cash remaining before you depart). Winning wagers on the gambler pay one to one. Winning bets for tie usually pays out at 8 to 1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is a poor bet as ties happen lower than 1 in every ten hands. Be cautious of wagering on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for nine to one vs. 8:1)

Gambled on properly baccarat chemin de fer offers fairly good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Course of Action

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has some common misconceptions. One of which is the same as a misunderstanding in roulette. The past is not an indicator of events yet to happen. Recording past results at a table is a bad use of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and probably the most acknowledged course of action is the 1-3-2-6 tactic. This method is used to maximize profits and limit risk.

Start by betting one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the game table for a sum of three units on the second bet. Should you win you will hold six on the table, take away 4 so you keep two on the third wager. If you come away with a win on the 3rd wager, put down two on the 4 on the table for a grand total of six on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the first bet, you take a loss of one. A win on the initial round followed by a hit on the second brings about a hit of two. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you with a profit of two. And success on the first 3 with a hit on the 4th means you break even. Winning all four wagers gives you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you are able to squander the 2nd bet 5 times for each favorable run of 4 bets and in the end, balance the books.
