Baccarat Banque Rules and Method

Baccarat Standards

Punto banco is wagered on with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards below 10 are valued at face value while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The total for each hand is the sum of the two cards, but the first number is discarded. For instance, a hand of five and six has a total of one (5 plus 6 = eleven; ditch the initial ‘one’).

A additional card might be dealt using the following rules:

- If the gambler or house achieves a value of eight or 9, both players hold.

- If the player has 5 or lower, he takes a card. Players stands otherwise.

- If the player stands, the banker takes a card on a total lower than five. If the player hits, a table is used to see if the house holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The larger of the 2 hands wins. Winning bets on the bank pay out 19 to 20 (equal money minus a 5% commission. Commission are kept track of and cleared out when you depart the game so ensure you have funds around just before you leave). Winning bets on the player pay one to one. Winning bets for a tie normally pays out at 8:1 but on occasion 9:1. (This is a awful wager as ties occur less than 1 in every 10 rounds. Be cautious of betting on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for 9:1 vs. 8 to 1)

Wagered on properly punto banco provides relatively good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Strategy

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has some familiar myths. One of which is similar to a misconception in roulette. The past is not an indicator of events yet to happen. Recording past results at a table is a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our paper desires.

The most common and likely the most acknowledged strategy is the 1-3-2-6 method. This method is used to pump up profits and limit losses.

Start by wagering 1 dollar. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the game table for a total of three units on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the game table, take away 4 so you keep two on the third round. Should you succeed on the third bet, deposit 2 on the four on the game table for a sum total of 6 on the fourth wager.

Should you lose on the first bet, you take a hit of 1. A win on the 1st round followed by a loss on the second causes a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a hit on the third provides you with a profit of two. And success on the 1st 3 with a loss on the 4th means you balance the books. Succeeding at all four bets leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. This means you are able to give up the 2nd bet five instances for each successful streak of four wagers and in the end, break even.
