Baccarat Banque Standards

Baccarat banque is played with eight decks in a shoe. Cards below 10 are counted at their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is one. Bets are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then given to the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The total for each hand is the total of the two cards, however the 1st digit is discarded. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a score of 1 (5 plus six = 11; ignore the first ‘one’).

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

- If the player or house gets a score of 8 or nine, both players stand.

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

- If the gambler holds, the banker takes a card on 5 or less. If the player hits, a guide is employed to determine if the house holds or hits.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The better of the two hands wins. Winning wagers on the bank pay out nineteen to Twenty (even money less a 5% commission. The Rake is recorded and cleared out once you leave the game so be sure to still have funds around just before you quit). Winning wagers on the player pays 1:1. Winning bets for tie usually pays out at eight to one but sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a poor bet as ties happen lower than 1 in every 10 rounds. Be wary of gambling on a tie. However odds are astonishingly greater for 9:1 vs. eight to one)

Gambled on correctly baccarat chemin de fer gives relatively good odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Course of Action

As with all games punto banco has some general misconceptions. One of which is similar to a misconception in roulette. The past is not a prophecy of events yet to happen. Tracking past results on a sheet of paper is a poor use of paper and an affront to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper needs.

The most familiar and likely the most favorable strategy is the one-three-two-six tactic. This tactic is deployed to maximize winnings and limit risk.

Start by wagering one chip. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the game table for a grand total of 3 chips on the second bet. Should you win you will retain six on the game table, pull off four so you keep 2 on the third bet. If you win the 3rd bet, put down two on the four on the table for a sum total of six on the 4th wager.

Should you do not win on the first wager, you take a loss of 1. A win on the first wager followed by a loss on the second causes a hit of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the third gives you with a gain of 2. And wins on the 1st 3 with a loss on the fourth means you break even. Winning all four bets leaves you with 12, a gain of 10. This means you are able to give up the second round 5 instances for every favorable streak of four wagers and still are even.
