## Punto Banco Policies and Strategy

Baccarat Standards

Baccarat is enjoyed with eight decks in a shoe. Cards below 10 are counted at face value while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is one. Wagers are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they just represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The total for every hand is the sum total of the cards, but the 1st digit is ignored. For example, a hand of 5 and 6 has a score of one (5 plus 6 equals eleven; ignore the initial ‘1′).

A additional card might be given using the rules below:

- If the player or banker gets a score of 8 or nine, the two players stay.

- If the gambler has less than five, she hits. Players otherwise stand.

- If the gambler stands, the house hits on 5 or lower. If the gambler hits, a table is used to determine if the bank stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The higher of the two totals wins. Winning bets on the bank payout nineteen to Twenty (equal cash less a 5% rake. Commission are recorded and cleared out once you quit the table so be sure to have money around just before you head out). Winning wagers on the player pays one to one. Winning bets for tie normally pays out at 8:1 but occasionally 9:1. (This is a bad wager as ties occur less than 1 in every 10 rounds. Be cautious of betting on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for 9 to 1 versus 8 to 1)

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

Punto Banco Scheme

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has a few established misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a myth in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of future outcomes. Keeping score of previous results at a table is a poor use of paper and a snub to the tree that gave its life for our paper needs.

The most established and possibly the most accomplished scheme is the one-three-two-six method. This tactic is deployed to pump up profits and limit losses.

Start by betting one chip. If you succeed, add another to the two on the game table for a grand total of 3 chips on the second bet. If you succeed you will now have 6 on the table, remove 4 so you have 2 on the third wager. If you win the 3rd bet, deposit two on the four on the table for a grand total of six on the fourth round.

Should you do not win on the 1st wager, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the first bet followed by a hit on the second creates a loss of 2. Wins on the first two with a defeat on the third gives you with a gain of 2. And wins on the first three with a hit on the 4th means you break even. Winning all 4 rounds gives you with 12, a take of 10. This means you can squander the 2nd wager five instances for every successful run of 4 rounds and still balance the books.
