Baccarat Principles

Baccarat banque is wagered on with eight decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards under 10 are counted at their printed number while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is one. Bets are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they simply represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The total for every hand is the sum of the two cards, although the beginning number is ignored. For instance, a hand of 5 and 6 has a score of 1 (five plus 6 = 11; ignore the initial ‘one’).

A 3rd card can be given out based on the rules below:

- If the gambler or bank has a total of eight or 9, the two players stand.

- If the player has less than 5, she hits. Players otherwise stand.

- If the gambler stands, the banker takes a card on a total less than five. If the gambler hits, a guide is employed to determine if the banker stands or takes a card.

Punto Banco Odds

The bigger of the 2 hands wins. Winning bets on the house pay out 19 to 20 (equal cash minus a 5 percent commission. The Rake is recorded and cleared out when you quit the game so be sure to have cash around just before you depart). Winning bets on the player pays out at one to one. Winning wagers for tie frequently pays eight to one but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a awful wager as ties occur lower than one in every 10 rounds. Be wary of wagering on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for 9:1 versus 8 to 1)

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

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Course of Action

As with all games baccarat banque has a handful of general misunderstandings. One of which is close to a myth in roulette. The past is not a prophecy of future outcomes. Tracking past results on a sheet of paper is a bad use of paper and an insult to the tree that gave its life for our stationary needs.

The most common and probably the most favorable plan is the one-three-two-six tactic. This plan is used to maximize earnings and limit risk.

Start by wagering 1 unit. If you win, add another to the 2 on the table for a grand total of three dollars on the second bet. Should you succeed you will hold 6 on the table, subtract 4 so you keep 2 on the third bet. If you succeed on the third bet, put down 2 to the 4 on the game table for a total of 6 on the 4th round.

Should you lose on the first round, you take a hit of 1. A win on the first bet followed by a loss on the second causes a loss of two. Success on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a gain of two. And success on the first three with a hit on the 4th means you are even. Succeeding at all 4 rounds gives you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you are able to not win on the second round 5 times for every successful run of 4 rounds and still balance the books.
