## Punto Banco Policies and Plan

Punto Banco Standards

Baccarat banque is gambled on with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards below ten are worth face value while Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is 1. Bets are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘house’ and ‘player’. The value for each hand is the sum total of the cards, but the beginning number is ignored. e.g., a hand of 5 and 6 has a score of 1 (5 plus six equals 11; ignore the 1st ‘1′).

A additional card may be given using the rules below:

- If the player or banker has a value of 8 or nine, the two players hold.

- If the gambler has 5 or less, he hits. Players otherwise hold.

- If the gambler stays, the bank hits on a value lower than five. If the gambler hits, a guide is used to decide if the house stays or hits.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The higher of the 2 scores wins. Winning wagers on the banker payout 19:20 (equal cash minus a 5 percent commission. Commission are tracked and paid off when you quit the game so ensure you have money around just before you leave). Winning wagers on the gambler pays 1 to 1. Winning bets for a tie frequently pays out at 8:1 but sometimes 9:1. (This is a bad bet as ties occur lower than 1 in every ten rounds. Be wary of putting money on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for nine to one versus eight to one)

Wagered on correctly baccarat banque gives generally good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Method

As with all games Baccarat has quite a few familiar misconceptions. One of which is similar to a false impression in roulette. The past isn’t a fore-teller of future actions. Keeping track of past results on a sheet of paper is a bad use of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our stationary desires.

The most accepted and definitely the most successful course of action is the one, three, two, six tactic. This method is employed to build up earnings and limit risk.

Begin by wagering one chip. If you succeed, add another to the two on the table for a sum of 3 chips on the second bet. Should you win you will retain 6 on the game table, subtract 4 so you keep 2 on the 3rd wager. If you succeed on the 3rd round, add 2 on the 4 on the game table for a sum total of six on the fourth wager.

Should you don’t win on the initial bet, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the 1st wager followed by a hit on the second brings about a hit of 2. Success on the first two with a defeat on the 3rd gives you with a gain of 2. And success on the first three with a hit on the 4th means you break even. Succeeding at all 4 wagers leaves you with 12, a gain of ten. This means you will be able to squander the 2nd wager five times for each favorable run of four rounds and still experience no loss.
