## Baccarat Banque Rules and Strategy

Baccarat Banque Rules

Baccarat is gambled on with 8 decks in a shoe. Cards valued less than ten are counted at their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they simply represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The score for each hand is the sum total of the cards, however the beginning digit is discarded. For instance, a hand of five and six has a total of one (five plus 6 equals eleven; ditch the initial ‘one’).

A 3rd card can be given based on 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 5, he hits. Players stays otherwise.

- If the gambler stays, the house hits on five or lower. If the player hits, a chart is used to decide if the banker stands or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The bigger of the 2 totals wins. Winning wagers on the house pay out 19:20 (even money less a 5% rake. The Rake is recorded and cleared out when you leave the game so be sure to have funds around before you quit). Winning wagers on the player pays out at 1 to 1. Winning bets for a tie usually pays out at 8:1 but sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a awful bet as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every 10 rounds. Be cautious of putting money on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for nine to one versus 8 to 1)

Gambled on properly baccarat gives pretty good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Method

As with all games Baccarat has quite a few general misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a misconception in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of events yet to happen. Recording past results at a table is a waste of paper and an affront to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper desires.

The most familiar and likely the most favorable plan is the one-three-two-six plan. This technique is employed to build up profits and minimizing losses.

Begin by betting 1 dollar. If you succeed, add 1 more to the two on the game table for a sum of three chips on the second bet. Should you succeed you will retain 6 on the table, subtract four so you have two on the third bet. If you succeed on the third bet, put down two on the 4 on the table for a total of six on the 4th bet.

If you lose on the initial bet, you take a loss of 1. A win on the initial round followed by a loss on the 2nd creates a loss of 2. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the third gives you with a take of 2. And wins on the 1st three with a defeat on the fourth means you are even. Winning all four wagers leaves you with 12, a profit of ten. This means you can squander the 2nd wager five instances for every favorable streak of 4 rounds and in the end, are even.
