Punto Banco Policies

Baccarat banque is enjoyed with eight decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards under 10 are valued at their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The score for every hand is the total of the cards, however the 1st number is discarded. For example, a hand of five and six has a total of 1 (5 plus 6 = eleven; ignore the first ‘1′).

A 3rd card could be given out based on the rules below:

- If the player or bank achieves a value of 8 or 9, the two players stay.

- If the player has five or lower, she takes a card. Players otherwise stay.

- If the player holds, the bank hits on a total less than five. If the player takes a card, a chart is employed to see if the bank stands or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The higher of the 2 scores wins. Winning bets on the bank payout nineteen to Twenty (equal money minus a 5% rake. Commission are kept track of and cleared out when you leave the game so be sure to still have money left over before you depart). Winning wagers on the gambler pays out at one to one. Winning bets for a tie typically pays 8 to 1 but occasionally 9:1. (This is a poor wager as a tie occurs less than 1 in every ten rounds. Be wary of betting on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for 9:1 vs. eight to one)

Played correctly punto banco gives generally good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has some established misconceptions. One of which is similar to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past is not a prophecy of future outcomes. Recording past outcomes on a chart is a poor use of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our stationary desires.

The most accepted and probably the most acknowledged scheme is the 1-3-2-6 tactic. This method is deployed to pump up earnings and limit losses.

Start by placing 1 dollar. If you succeed, add 1 more to the two on the table for a sum total of three units on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the game table, subtract four so you are left with 2 on the 3rd round. Should you succeed on the third wager, deposit two on the 4 on the table for a grand total of six on the fourth wager.

Should you don’t win on the initial round, you take a loss of one. A win on the 1st bet followed by a hit on the second causes a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a defeat on the third gives you with a gain of 2. And success on the initial 3 with a loss on the 4th means you break even. Winning at all 4 rounds leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you are able to lose the second bet 5 times for each favorable run of 4 wagers and in the end, are even.
