Baccarat Banque Rules

Baccarat is gambled on with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards under ten are worth face value while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is one. Bets are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The value for every hand is the sum of the cards, although the beginning digit is dropped. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a total of one (5 plus six equals eleven; ignore the 1st ‘one’).

A 3rd card can be given depending on the rules below:

- If the gambler or house gets a value of 8 or nine, both players stay.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, he hits. Players otherwise stay.

- If the player stays, the bank takes a card on a value lower than 5. If the gambler takes a card, a table is used to decide if the bank holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The higher of the two totals wins. Winning bets on the banker payout 19 to 20 (equal cash less a 5% rake. Commission are kept track of and paid off once you depart the game so be sure to still have cash left before you head out). Winning bets on the gambler pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for a tie normally pays eight to one but sometimes 9:1. (This is a bad wager as a tie occurs lower than one in every 10 rounds. Be wary of putting money on a tie. However odds are substantially better for nine to one versus 8:1)

Gambled on correctly baccarat banque gives relatively decent odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has a handful of common false impressions. One of which is similar to a myth in roulette. The past is not an indicator of future actions. Tracking previous results at a table is a poor use of paper and an affront to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most accepted and definitely the most accomplished plan is the one, three, two, six tactic. This tactic is employed to maximize earnings and limit risk.

Start by placing 1 unit. If you win, add another to the two on the table for a total of three dollars on the second bet. If you win you will now have 6 on the table, pull off 4 so you have two on the third round. Should you come away with a win on the 3rd bet, add 2 on the four on the table for a grand total of six on the 4th round.

Should you do not win on the initial wager, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the 1st wager followed by a hit on the 2nd brings about a hit of two. Wins on the 1st two with a defeat on the third gives you with a profit of 2. And wins on the 1st three with a hit on the 4th means you experience no loss. Winning at all four wagers gives you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you will be able to give up the second round five instances for each favorable run of 4 bets and still break even.
