## Baccarat Banque Regulations and Method

Baccarat Policies

Punto banco is bet on with eight decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards valued less than 10 are valued at face value while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they simply represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘house’ and ‘gambler’. The value for every hand is the total of the cards, but the 1st digit is dumped. e.g., a hand of five and six has a total of one (5 plus 6 = eleven; ignore the 1st ‘one’).

A third card might be given out using the following rules:

- If the gambler or banker gets a value of eight or nine, both players hold.

- If the player has five or less, he hits. Players stays otherwise.

- If the player holds, the house hits on 5 or lower. If the gambler takes a card, a guide is employed to determine if the banker holds or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The larger of the two scores wins. Winning bets on the house pay out 19:20 (even money less a 5% commission. The Rake is tracked and cleared out when you quit the table so ensure you still have money left just before you head out). Winning bets on the gambler pays 1 to 1. Winning wagers for a tie usually pay eight to one but on occasion 9:1. (This is a bad bet as ties occur less than 1 in every 10 hands. Be cautious of wagering on a tie. Although odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 vs. 8:1)

Played correctly punto banco offers generally good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Scheme

As with all games Baccarat has a handful of common misconceptions. One of which is the same as a myth in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of future actions. Keeping track of past outcomes on a sheet of paper is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary needs.

The most familiar and likely the most acknowledged course of action is the one-three-two-six method. This tactic is employed to build up earnings and minimizing losses.

Start by wagering one chip. If you succeed, add another to the 2 on the table for a total of three units on the second bet. If you succeed you will have six on the game table, subtract four so you are left with 2 on the third bet. Should you succeed on the third round, add two to the 4 on the table for a grand total of six on the fourth bet.

If you do not win on the initial round, you take a hit of one. A win on the first round followed by a loss on the second creates a loss of 2. Wins on the initial two with a hit on the third gives you with a gain of two. And wins on the 1st 3 with a defeat on the fourth means you experience no loss. Succeeding at all 4 rounds leaves you with 12, a take of 10. This means you can lose the 2nd round 5 times for every favorable run of 4 wagers and in the end, balance the books.
