## Baccarat Banque Regulations and Plan

Baccarat Principles

Punto banco is gambled on with eight decks in a shoe. Cards valued less than ten are counted at face value while at the same time Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is 1. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not really people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the total of the cards, but the beginning number is dropped. For instance, a hand of five and six has a value of one (5 plus six = 11; ditch the initial ‘one’).

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

- If the gambler or house achieves a value of eight or 9, the two players hold.

- If the player has less than five, she takes a card. Players otherwise stay.

- If the player holds, the house hits on a value lower than five. If the player hits, a table is used to decide if the banker stays or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The greater of the 2 totals wins. Winning bets on the house payout 19 to 20 (even money minus a 5% rake. The Rake is tracked and paid off once you depart the game so ensure you still have money left before you depart). Winning bets on the gambler pay 1:1. Winning wagers for tie normally pay 8:1 but sometimes 9:1. (This is a bad wager as ties occur less than one in every ten hands. Be wary of betting on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly better for nine to one versus 8 to 1)

Gambled on correctly baccarat chemin de fer offers fairly decent odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Course of Action

As with all games punto banco has a few general misconceptions. One of which is close to a absurdity in roulette. The past isn’t a harbinger of future actions. Tracking past outcomes on a page of paper is a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper desires.

The most established and possibly the most favorable method is the 1-3-2-6 technique. This technique is used to pump up winnings and limit losses.

Begin by betting one dollar. If you succeed, add one more to the 2 on the table for a sum total of 3 units on the second bet. Should you succeed you will retain 6 on the table, remove four so you keep 2 on the third wager. Should you come away with a win on the 3rd round, add 2 on the 4 on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th wager.

If you don’t win on the first round, you take a loss of one. A profit on the 1st round followed by a hit on the 2nd brings about a loss of 2. Wins on the 1st 2 with a hit on the third gives you with a take of 2. And success on the initial 3 with a hit on the 4th means you are even. Winning at all four wagers gives you with twelve, a take of ten. This means you are able to lose the 2nd bet 5 times for each successful streak of four bets and in the end, are even.
