Punto Banco Rules

Punto banco is bet on with eight decks in a dealer’s shoe. Cards valued less than 10 are counted at their printed value while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is one. Bets are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t actual people; they just represent the 2 hands to be dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for every hand is the sum of the 2 cards, but the beginning number is ignored. e.g., a hand of five and 6 has a score of one (five plus six equals 11; dump the 1st ‘1′).

A 3rd card might be dealt using the following rules:

- If the player or bank has a score of eight or nine, the two players hold.

- If the gambler has less than five, she takes a card. Players otherwise stay.

- If the gambler stands, the banker takes a card on a total less than 5. If the player hits, a table is employed to decide if the bank stands or takes a card.

The better of the 2 hands wins. Winning bets on the banker payout 19 to 20 (equal money less a 5 percent commission. Commission are tracked and cleared out once you quit the table so make sure you still have cash remaining before you leave). Winning bets on the player pays one to one. Winning wagers for a tie normally pay 8:1 but occasionally 9:1. (This is a bad bet as ties occur lower than 1 in every 10 hands. Be cautious of putting money on a tie. However odds are astonishingly better for nine to one vs. 8:1)

Wagered on correctly baccarat provides generally decent odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Banque Method

As with all games punto banco has a few familiar false impressions. One of which is the same as a myth in roulette. The past is not an indicator of events about to happen. Tracking past outcomes at a table is a poor use of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our stationary desires.

The most common and probably the most successful course of action is the one-three-two-six tactic. This technique is used to maximize earnings and minimizing losses.

Begin by placing one dollar. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a grand total of three units on the second bet. If you succeed you will retain 6 on the game table, remove four so you are left with 2 on the 3rd round. If you succeed on the third bet, deposit two on the 4 on the game table for a sum total of six on the 4th round.

If you do not win on the first round, you take a loss of one. A win on the initial wager followed by a hit on the 2nd creates a hit of 2. Success on the first 2 with a defeat on the 3rd provides you with a profit of two. And wins on the initial three with a hit on the fourth means you break even. Winning at all four bets gives you with twelve, a gain of ten. This means you will be able to give up the second bet 5 times for each successful streak of 4 wagers and still are even.
