## Baccarat Banque Rules and Strategy

Baccarat Banque Rules

Punto banco is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards valued less than 10 are counted at their printed number while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is one. Wagers are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The total for each hand is the total of the 2 cards, however the beginning digit is dumped. For instance, a hand of five and 6 has a total of 1 (5 plus 6 = 11; ditch the 1st ‘one’).

A additional card could be given based on the following rules:

- If the player or house has a score of 8 or 9, the two players stand.

- If the player has less than 5, she takes a card. Players holds otherwise.

- If the player stands, the house takes a card on a total less than five. If the gambler hits, a guide is used to decide if the banker holds or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The bigger of the two hands wins. Winning wagers on the house payout 19:20 (equal money less a 5 percent rake. Commission are tracked and cleared out once you quit the table so ensure you still have funds left before you quit). Winning wagers on the gambler pay 1 to 1. Winning bets for a tie usually pays out at 8:1 but sometimes 9:1. (This is a bad bet as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every ten hands. Avoid putting money on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for nine to one vs. eight to one)

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

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Course of Action

As with all games Baccarat has a few established misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of future actions. Recording previous outcomes on a page of paper is a poor use of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our paper desires.

The most accepted and possibly the most favorable course of action is the one, three, two, six technique. This tactic is deployed to pump up profits and minimizing risk.

Begin by placing one dollar. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a sum total of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you win you will now have 6 on the game table, take away four so you keep 2 on the third wager. Should you come away with a win on the third round, add two on the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the fourth round.

If you lose on the first round, you take a hit of 1. A profit on the 1st round followed by a hit on the second causes a hit of 2. Success on the first 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you with a profit of two. And success on the first three with a hit on the fourth means you break even. Winning all 4 bets leaves you with 12, a take of 10. This means you will be able to give up the 2nd bet five instances for each favorable streak of 4 wagers and still experience no loss.
