Baccarat Standards

Punto banco is enjoyed with eight decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards below ten are worth face value and with Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is one. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘house’ and ‘gambler’. The value for every hand is the sum total of the 2 cards, however the 1st digit is discarded. For example, a hand of 5 and six has a value of one (five plus six equals 11; drop the first ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be dealt based on the following rules:

- If the player or bank gets a value of 8 or 9, the two players stay.

- If the player has less than five, he hits. Players holds otherwise.

- If the player stands, the banker takes a card on a total lower than five. If the player hits, a chart is used to decide if the bank holds or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The higher of the two totals wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay out 19 to 20 (equal cash less a 5% rake. Commission are tracked and cleared out once you leave the game so make sure you have funds left before you leave). Winning bets on the gambler pays out at one to one. Winning bets for tie normally pay 8 to 1 but occasionally 9:1. (This is a awful bet as ties occur lower than 1 in every ten rounds. Avoid wagering on a tie. Although odds are substantially better for nine to one vs. 8 to 1)

Wagered on properly baccarat chemin de fer provides generally decent odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Banque Strategy

As with all games baccarat banque has some accepted misconceptions. One of which is the same as a false impression in roulette. The past isn’t a prophecy of future events. Recording previous results on a sheet of paper is a bad use of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most familiar and possibly the most accomplished course of action is the one, three, two, six plan. This plan is used to maximize winnings and minimizing risk.

Begin by placing one dollar. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the game table for a total of three chips on the second bet. Should you win you will hold 6 on the game table, subtract four so you are left with two on the 3rd round. Should you come away with a win on the 3rd bet, add two to the 4 on the table for a total of six on the 4th round.

Should you do not win on the initial wager, you take a hit of 1. A profit on the first bet followed by a hit on the 2nd creates a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 with a hit on the 3rd provides you with a take of two. And wins on the first 3 with a defeat on the fourth means you are even. Winning at all four bets leaves you with 12, a gain of ten. This means you can lose the second bet five times for each favorable run of four wagers and in the end, experience no loss.
