Punto Banco Rules

Punto banco is bet on with eight decks of cards in a dealer’s shoe. Cards under ten are valued at their printed number while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they simply represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The total for each hand is the sum total of the two cards, although the beginning number is dumped. For instance, a hand of five and six has a score of one (five plus six equals eleven; drop the 1st ‘one’).

A third card may be given using the rules below:

- If the gambler or bank achieves a total of 8 or 9, the two players stay.

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

- If the player holds, the house hits on a total less than five. If the player takes a card, a guide is used to decide if the banker stands or hits.

The higher of the two totals wins. Winning wagers on the house payout 19 to 20 (equal cash less a 5% rake. The Rake is kept track of and cleared out once you quit the table so ensure you still have cash remaining just before you head out). Winning wagers on the gambler pay one to one. Winning wagers for tie frequently pays out at 8:1 but sometimes nine to one. (This is a awful bet as ties occur lower than one in every 10 hands. Avoid betting on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for nine to one vs. 8:1)

Wagered on correctly baccarat offers generally decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Banque Method

As with all games Baccarat has a few established misunderstandings. One of which is close to a absurdity in roulette. The past isn’t a fore-teller of events yet to happen. Keeping score of previous results at a table is a poor use of paper and an insult to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary needs.

The most established and definitely the most favorable course of action is the one, three, two, six method. This technique is deployed to build up profits and minimizing risk.

Begin by placing 1 unit. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the game table for a sum total of 3 chips on the second bet. If you win you will have six on the game table, subtract four so you are left with 2 on the 3rd wager. Should you succeed on the 3rd bet, deposit two on the 4 on the game table for a grand total of 6 on the fourth wager.

If you don’t win on the 1st bet, you take a hit of one. A profit on the initial bet followed by a hit on the second causes a loss of two. Success on the initial two with a loss on the 3rd gives you with a take of two. And wins on the first 3 with a defeat on the fourth means you break even. Winning all 4 bets gives you with twelve, a take of ten. This means you can give up the 2nd round 5 instances for every successful run of four rounds and still are even.
