## Punto Banco Policies and Plan

Baccarat Rules

Baccarat chemin de fer is enjoyed with eight decks in a shoe. Cards under ten are valued at face value and with Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t actual people; they simply represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The score for every hand is the sum total of the two cards, but the 1st number is dropped. e.g., a hand of 5 and six has a value of 1 (five plus six equals eleven; ditch the initial ‘one’).

A 3rd card may be given based on the following rules:

- If the gambler or bank has a value of 8 or 9, both players stay.

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

- If the player stays, the bank takes a card on a total lower than 5. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to see if the house holds or hits.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The better of the 2 totals wins. Winning bets on the house pay out 19 to 20 (equal money minus a five percent rake. Commission are tracked and cleared out when you quit the table so be sure to still have funds remaining just before you quit). Winning wagers on the gambler pays out at 1 to 1. Winning wagers for tie usually pays out at eight to one but occasionally 9:1. (This is a bad bet as a tie occurs less than 1 in every ten rounds. Be cautious of putting money on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for 9:1 vs. 8 to 1)

Gambled on properly baccarat chemin de fer gives relatively decent odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games baccarat banque has a handful of general misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a absurdity in roulette. The past isn’t a harbinger of events about to happen. Tracking past results on a sheet of paper is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper desires.

The most familiar and definitely the most successful strategy is the 1-3-2-6 tactic. This plan is employed to maximize winnings and limit losses.

Begin by placing one unit. If you succeed, add another to the 2 on the game table for a grand total of three units on the second bet. Should you succeed you will retain six on the game table, take away 4 so you keep 2 on the 3rd wager. If you come away with a win on the 3rd wager, deposit 2 on the 4 on the game table for a sum total of 6 on the 4th bet.

Should you don’t win on the 1st wager, you take a hit of one. A profit on the first wager followed by a loss on the 2nd causes a hit of two. Wins on the first 2 with a loss on the 3rd gives you with a profit of 2. And success on the initial 3 with a hit on the 4th means you are even. Succeeding at all four wagers leaves you with twelve, a gain of 10. This means you can squander the 2nd round five instances for every favorable run of 4 rounds and in the end, break even.
