Baccarat Standards

Baccarat banque is gambled on with eight decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards below ten are worth their printed value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the total of the cards, but the beginning digit is ignored. For example, a hand of 5 and 6 has a score of 1 (5 plus six = eleven; dump the 1st ‘1′).

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

- If the gambler or banker gets a score of 8 or 9, both players hold.

- If the gambler has five or less, he takes a card. Players stays otherwise.

- If the player stays, the banker hits on a total less than 5. If the player takes a card, a chart is used to figure out if the bank stays or hits.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The better of the two totals wins. Winning wagers on the bank pay out 19 to 20 (equal money less a five percent commission. The Rake is kept track of and paid off once you depart the table so make sure you have cash around before you head out). Winning wagers on the player pays out at 1 to 1. Winning bets for a tie normally pays out at 8 to 1 but on occasion 9:1. (This is a awful bet as ties occur lower than one in every ten hands. Be cautious of gambling on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for 9:1 versus 8:1)

Played properly punto banco offers pretty good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Banque Course of Action

As with all games Baccarat has a few general misunderstandings. One of which is the same as a misunderstanding in roulette. The past is not an indicator of future events. Tracking previous results at a table is a bad use of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most familiar and possibly the most successful course of action is the one-three-two-six plan. This technique is used to build up profits and limit losses.

Begin by betting one dollar. If you win, add another to the 2 on the table for a sum of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you succeed you will now have six on the game table, pull off 4 so you keep 2 on the third round. If you come away with a win on the 3rd wager, deposit two to the 4 on the game table for a sum total of six on the fourth round.

Should you don’t win on the first bet, you take a hit of one. A win on the 1st bet followed by a hit on the 2nd creates a loss of two. Success on the initial 2 with a loss on the third provides you with a gain of two. And success on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth means you balance the books. Winning at all four rounds gives you with twelve, a gain of 10. This means you can squander the second bet five times for each successful run of four wagers and still experience no loss.
