Baccarat Practices and Plan

Baccarat Regulations

Baccarat is enjoyed with eight decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards under ten are valued at their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is one. Wagers 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 ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The value for every hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the first number is dropped. For example, a hand of five and six has a score of one (five plus 6 = 11; drop the first ‘1′).

A third card will be given based on the rules below:

- If the player or banker achieves a value of 8 or nine, the two players stay.

- If the player has five or less, she takes a card. Players stands otherwise.

- If the player stands, the bank takes a card on a value lower than five. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to see if the bank stands or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The greater of the two hands wins. Winning bets on the house pay out 19 to 20 (even payout less a 5 percent commission. Commission are kept track of and cleared out when you quit the table so make sure you have funds around before you head out). Winning bets on the gambler pays 1 to 1. Winning wagers for a tie normally pays out at 8 to 1 but sometimes 9:1. (This is a bad bet as a tie occurs lower than one in every 10 hands. Avoid betting on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9:1 versus 8 to 1)

Played properly punto banco gives fairly good odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Scheme

As with all games Baccarat has a handful of familiar misconceptions. One of which is close to a false impression in roulette. The past is not an indicator of events yet to happen. Recording past results on a page of paper is a poor use of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our paper needs.

The most common and possibly the most favorable course of action is the one-three-two-six technique. This plan is deployed to maximize profits and limit risk.

Begin by wagering 1 unit. If you succeed, add one more to the 2 on the game table for a grand total of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you succeed you will hold 6 on the table, remove four so you have two on the third bet. Should you come away with a win on the third round, deposit two to the 4 on the table for a total of six on the 4th wager.

Should you do not win on the initial round, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the first wager followed by a hit on the second causes a loss of two. Success on the first two with a defeat on the 3rd gives you with a gain of two. And wins on the first three with a loss on the 4th means you break even. Succeeding at all 4 rounds leaves you with 12, a gain of 10. This means you can not win on the 2nd wager five times for each favorable streak of 4 bets and still balance the books.
