Punto Banco Regulations

Baccarat is played with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards below 10 are valued at their printed value and with Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and A is 1. Wagers are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then dealt to the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The value for each hand is the sum total of the cards, however the beginning digit is ignored. For example, a hand of five and six has a score of one (five plus six equals 11; ditch the first ‘1′).

A third card could be dealt depending on the following rules:

- If the gambler or house gets a score of eight or nine, both players stand.

- If the gambler has 5 or less, he takes a card. Players otherwise stay.

- If the player holds, the house hits on five or less. If the gambler hits, a chart is employed to see if the house stands or hits.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Odds

The bigger of the two scores wins. Winning bets on the bank pay out 19 to 20 (equal cash less a 5% commission. The Rake is tracked and cleared out once you depart the table so make sure you have money remaining just before you depart). Winning bets on the gambler pay 1:1. Winning bets for tie usually pays eight to one but on occasion nine to one. (This is a awful wager as ties occur less than 1 in every 10 hands. Avoid wagering on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for 9:1 versus eight to one)

Bet on correctly baccarat gives relatively good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Method

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has some established false impressions. One of which is the same as a absurdity in roulette. The past is not a prophecy of future events. Tracking previous results at a table is a poor use of paper and an affront to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary desires.

The most familiar and probably the most favorable scheme is the one, three, two, six technique. This method is deployed to build up winnings and minimizing losses.

Begin by placing 1 chip. If you succeed, add 1 more to the two on the table for a sum of 3 dollars on the second bet. If you succeed you will retain 6 on the table, pull off four so you have two on the third bet. If you succeed on the 3rd round, put down 2 on the 4 on the table for a grand total of 6 on the 4th round.

Should you don’t win on the initial round, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the first round followed by a loss on the second causes a loss of two. Wins on the initial 2 with a defeat on the third gives you with a gain of two. And wins on the 1st three with a defeat on the 4th means you balance the books. Succeeding at all 4 wagers gives you with twelve, a gain of 10. This means you will be able to squander the second wager 5 instances for every successful run of 4 bets and still experience no loss.
