Baccarat Banque Practices and Strategy

Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat banque is played with 8 decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards under 10 are worth face value while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is 1. Bets are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘house’ and ‘gambler’. The value for each hand is the sum of the cards, however the 1st digit is dropped. e.g., a hand of 5 and 6 has a score of one (five plus six equals 11; ditch the initial ‘1′).

A third card may be given out using the rules below:

- If the player or banker achieves a total of 8 or nine, the two players hold.

- If the player has less than five, he takes a card. Players stands otherwise.

- If the player stays, the banker takes a card on a value less than 5. If the gambler hits, a table is employed to figure out if the banker stands or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The larger of the 2 scores wins. Winning bets on the banker payout 19 to 20 (equal cash minus a 5 percent commission. Commission are recorded and cleared out once you leave the game so make sure you still have funds around just before you depart). Winning wagers on the gambler pays 1:1. Winning wagers for tie frequently pay 8:1 but occasionally nine to one. (This is a awful wager as ties happen less than 1 in every ten rounds. Be cautious of putting money on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for nine to one versus 8:1)

Played properly baccarat banque provides pretty decent odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games punto banco has a handful of general myths. One of which is close to a myth in roulette. The past isn’t a harbinger of future outcomes. Recording previous results on a page of paper is a bad use of paper and an affront to the tree that gave its life for our paper desires.

The most familiar and probably the most acknowledged scheme is the one-three-two-six plan. This tactic is employed to maximize earnings and limit losses.

Begin by betting one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the 2 on the table for a sum total of 3 units on the second bet. Should you win you will have 6 on the table, subtract four so you have 2 on the third bet. If you succeed on the third bet, put down 2 on the four on the game table for a sum total of six on the fourth wager.

If you don’t win on the first wager, you take a hit of 1. A profit on the first bet followed by a hit on the 2nd causes a loss of 2. Success on the 1st two with a hit on the 3rd provides you with a profit of two. And wins on the initial 3 with a loss on the 4th means you balance the books. Winning at all four rounds gives you with twelve, a take of ten. This means you can lose the second bet five times for every favorable run of 4 bets and still experience no loss.
