Baccarat Banque Practices and Method

[ English ]

Punto Banco Regulations

Baccarat banque is wagered on with eight decks of cards in a shoe. Cards under ten are valued at their printed number while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Bets are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The total for each hand is the sum of the two cards, however the beginning digit is dropped. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a value of one (five plus 6 equals 11; drop the initial ‘one’).

A additional card might be dealt based on the rules below:

- If the gambler or house has a total of 8 or 9, both players stay.

- If the gambler has five or less, he takes a card. Players holds otherwise.

- If the gambler stands, the house hits on five or less. If the player hits, a chart is employed to determine if the banker stands or takes a card.

Punto Banco Odds

The larger of the 2 hands wins. Winning wagers on the house pay out nineteen to Twenty (equal cash less a five percent rake. The Rake is kept track of and cleared out when you depart the game so be sure to have cash left before you quit). Winning bets on the gambler pays out at one to one. Winning wagers for a tie normally pays 8:1 but occasionally 9:1. (This is a awful wager as ties occur less than 1 in every ten rounds. Avoid putting money on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 vs. 8:1)

Gambled on correctly punto banco provides generally decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Scheme

As with all games Baccarat has some established misconceptions. One of which is similar to a false impression in roulette. The past isn’t a fore-teller of events about to happen. Recording past outcomes 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 accepted and probably the most favorable scheme is the one, three, two, six method. This method is used to maximize winnings and limit risk.

Start by wagering one chip. If you succeed, add 1 more to the two on the game table for a sum of 3 chips on the second bet. Should you win you will retain 6 on the game table, pull off four so you are left with 2 on the 3rd round. Should you win the third wager, add 2 to the four on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th wager.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you take a loss of one. A win on the 1st round followed by a hit on the 2nd creates a hit of two. Success on the first 2 with a defeat on the 3rd provides you with a profit of two. And wins on the first 3 with a loss on the fourth means you break even. Winning all 4 wagers leaves you with 12, a profit of 10. This means you will be able to squander the 2nd bet five instances for each successful run of 4 rounds and in the end, are even.
