Baccarat Banque Policies and Strategy

Punto Banco Standards

Baccarat is wagered on with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards below ten are valued at their printed value while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t really people; they simply represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The total for every hand is the total of the 2 cards, however the first number is dumped. For instance, a hand of five and 6 has a score of one (five plus 6 equals 11; drop the 1st ‘1′).

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

- If the player or house gets a total of 8 or nine, the two players hold.

- If the gambler has less than five, he takes a card. Players otherwise hold.

- If the gambler holds, the house takes a card on a value less than 5. If the player hits, a chart is used to decide if the bank stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Odds

The better of the 2 totals wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay out nineteen to Twenty (even payout minus a 5% commission. The Rake is recorded and paid off once you leave the table so ensure you still have funds remaining before you quit). Winning wagers on the gambler pays 1 to 1. Winning wagers for a tie frequently pay eight to one but on occasion 9:1. (This is a poor wager as a tie occurs less than 1 in every ten hands. Be wary of wagering on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for nine to one versus eight to one)

Played correctly baccarat offers relatively good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games baccarat banque has quite a few common myths. One of which is close to a myth in roulette. The past isn’t a fore-teller of future actions. Tracking past outcomes at a table is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper desires.

The most common and possibly the most accomplished method is the one, three, two, six plan. This method is deployed to build up winnings and minimizing losses.

Begin by betting 1 dollar. If you succeed, add 1 more to the 2 on the game table for a sum of 3 dollars on the second bet. Should you succeed you will retain six on the game table, remove 4 so you are left with two on the third wager. Should you succeed on the third bet, add 2 on the 4 on the game table for a total of 6 on the fourth round.

If you lose on the 1st round, you take a hit of one. A profit on the 1st wager followed by a hit on the second causes a hit of two. Success on the 1st two with a defeat on the 3rd gives you with a take of two. And success on the first three with a defeat on the 4th means you break even. Succeeding at all 4 bets gives you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you will be able to squander the second round five instances for every favorable run of 4 rounds and still experience no loss.
