## Punto Banco Policies and Method

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Rules

Baccarat is played with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards below 10 are valued at face value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they simply represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘house’ and ‘gambler’. The total for each hand is the total of the cards, but the first number is discarded. For instance, a hand of five and six has a total of one (5 plus 6 equals eleven; ditch the 1st ‘1′).

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

- If the player or bank achieves a score of 8 or 9, the two players stay.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, she hits. Players holds otherwise.

- If the player stands, the bank takes a card on a total lower than five. If the gambler takes a card, a guide is used to figure out if the house stands or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The higher of the 2 scores wins. Winning bets on the banker payout nineteen to Twenty (equal cash minus a five percent commission. The Rake is tracked and cleared out when you quit the table so be sure to have cash remaining before you quit). Winning bets on the player pays out at 1 to 1. Winning wagers for tie usually pays eight to one but occasionally 9 to 1. (This is a poor bet as ties happen less than 1 in every 10 hands. Avoid putting money on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for nine to one versus eight to one)

Bet on correctly baccarat banque gives fairly good odds, aside from the tie wager of course.

Baccarat Method

As with all games baccarat banque has some general misconceptions. One of which is close to a misconception in roulette. The past isn’t a fore-teller of future outcomes. Recording previous outcomes on a chart is a bad use of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our stationary needs.

The most accepted and definitely the most successful scheme is the one, three, two, six plan. This technique is used to maximize earnings and minimizing risk.

Begin by wagering one unit. If you succeed, add one more to the 2 on the table for a total of three dollars on the second bet. If you win you will have 6 on the table, take away 4 so you are left with 2 on the third bet. If you win the 3rd round, put down 2 on the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th wager.

Should you lose on the 1st round, you take a hit of one. A win on the initial round followed by a hit on the 2nd causes a hit of two. Wins on the initial two with a defeat on the 3rd gives you with a profit of 2. And wins on the 1st three with a defeat on the 4th means you experience no loss. Winning at all 4 wagers gives you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you are able to give up the second round five times for every favorable streak of four rounds and still balance the books.
