Punto Banco Regulations

Baccarat banque is gambled on with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards valued less than 10 are valued at face value while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The score for every hand is the total of the 2 cards, but the beginning number is ignored. For instance, a hand of five and six has a total of 1 (five plus 6 equals 11; ignore the 1st ‘1′).

A third card could be dealt depending on the following rules:

- If the player or house gets a score of eight or nine, the two players stay.

- If the gambler has less than 5, she takes a card. Players stands otherwise.

- If the player stands, the bank takes a card on a total lower than five. If the player hits, a chart is used to figure out if the banker holds or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two hands wins. Winning bets on the bank payout nineteen to Twenty (equal money minus a five percent commission. Commission are recorded and cleared out when you quit the game so be sure to have funds left over just before you quit). Winning bets on the player pays out at 1:1. Winning wagers for a tie normally pays 8 to 1 but sometimes nine to one. (This is a poor wager as ties happen less than 1 in every 10 hands. Be cautious of putting money on a tie. Although odds are substantially better for nine to one vs. 8 to 1)

Gambled on correctly baccarat gives generally decent odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Banque Course of Action

As with all games Baccarat has quite a few established false impressions. One of which is similar to a myth in roulette. The past is not a prophecy of future actions. Recording past outcomes on a sheet of paper is a poor use of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our paper desires.

The most established and possibly the most accomplished strategy is the 1-3-2-6 tactic. This plan is used to pump up earnings and limit losses.

Begin by wagering one dollar. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the game table for a sum of three chips on the second bet. Should you succeed you will retain six on the table, take away 4 so you keep two on the third round. If you come away with a win on the 3rd round, add 2 on the four on the table for a grand total of 6 on the fourth wager.

Should you do not win on the 1st round, you take a loss of one. A win on the first bet followed by a loss on the second creates a loss of 2. Success on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd gives you with a profit of 2. And wins on the initial three with a hit on the fourth means you break even. Winning at all 4 rounds gives you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you can not win on the 2nd round 5 times for every successful run of four bets and still experience no loss.
