Punto Banco Practices and Strategy

Punto Banco Rules

Baccarat is wagered on with eight decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards below 10 are counted at face value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Bets are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘house’ and ‘gambler’. The value for every hand is the total of the cards, but the 1st number is ignored. e.g., a hand of 5 and six has a value of 1 (five plus 6 = 11; ignore the 1st ‘one’).

A 3rd card might be given out using the rules below:

- If the player or banker achieves a total of 8 or nine, both players stay.

- If the player has less than 5, she hits. Players stays otherwise.

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

Punto Banco Odds

The better of the 2 hands wins. Winning bets on the bank pay out 19 to 20 (even payout minus a 5 percent commission. The Rake is tracked and paid off once you depart the table so make sure you still have cash around just before you leave). Winning bets on the player pays out at 1:1. Winning bets for tie usually pays 8:1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is a awful wager as ties happen lower than one in every ten hands. Be wary of betting on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for 9:1 vs. 8:1)

Bet on properly baccarat banque gives relatively good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Method

As with all games baccarat banque has quite a few common misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a myth in roulette. The past isn’t a fore-teller of future actions. Recording previous results on a chart is a bad use of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary desires.

The most common and definitely the most favorable strategy is the 1-3-2-6 technique. This plan is employed to build up winnings and limit risk.

Begin by wagering one chip. If you succeed, add another to the 2 on the table for a grand total of three chips on the second bet. If you succeed you will retain 6 on the game table, take away four so you keep two on the third round. Should you succeed on the 3rd wager, deposit two on the 4 on the game table for a total of six on the fourth round.

Should you lose on the first bet, you take a loss of one. A win on the first round followed by a loss on the 2nd causes a hit of two. Wins on the 1st 2 with a hit on the third provides you with a profit of two. And wins on the 1st 3 with a loss on the 4th means you experience no loss. Succeeding at all 4 rounds leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you are able to give up the 2nd round five instances for every favorable run of 4 wagers and in the end, experience no loss.
