Punto Banco Practices and Strategy

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Standards

Punto banco is wagered on with eight decks in a shoe. Cards below 10 are counted at their printed value and with Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is 1. Bets are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two cards are dealt to both the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The total for every hand is the total of the cards, although the first digit is ignored. For instance, a hand of five and 6 has a value of 1 (5 plus 6 equals 11; drop the first ‘one’).

A 3rd card can be given using the following rules:

- If the gambler or banker has a total of 8 or nine, both players stay.

- If the gambler has 5 or lower, she takes a card. Players otherwise stand.

- If the gambler stands, the house hits on a total less than five. If the gambler hits, a chart is used to decide if the house stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the 2 hands wins. Winning bets on the banker pay out nineteen to Twenty (equal cash less a 5 percent rake. Commission are kept track of and cleared out once you depart the game so ensure you still have cash left over before you depart). Winning bets on the player pays out at 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie typically pays 8:1 but on occasion 9:1. (This is a poor wager as a tie occurs less than 1 in every ten hands. Avoid wagering on a tie. Although odds are substantially greater for nine to one versus 8 to 1)

Gambled on properly punto banco offers relatively decent odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games Baccarat has a handful of accepted false impressions. One of which is the same as a misunderstanding in roulette. The past isn’t a prophecy of events yet to happen. Recording past outcomes at a table is a poor use of paper and a snub to the tree that was cut down for our paper desires.

The most established and almost certainly the most acknowledged scheme is the one-three-two-six plan. This technique is deployed to maximize winnings and minimizing losses.

Begin by wagering 1 unit. If you succeed, add one more to the two on the table for a total of three units on the second bet. If you succeed you will now have 6 on the game table, remove 4 so you keep two on the 3rd bet. If you come away with a win on the 3rd wager, put down 2 on the four on the game table for a total of six on the 4th bet.

Should you don’t win on the initial wager, you take a hit of 1. A win on the initial wager followed by a hit on the second causes a hit of 2. Success on the 1st 2 with a defeat on the third provides you with a take of two. And wins on the 1st 3 with a hit on the 4th means you experience no loss. Winning at all four rounds leaves you with twelve, a take of ten. This means you can not win on the 2nd wager five instances for every successful streak of four wagers and still are even.
