Baccarat Codes

Baccarat is gambled on with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards valued less than ten are valued at their printed value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is one. Bets are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not really people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The score for each hand is the sum total of the cards, although the first number is ignored. For example, a hand of five and six has a value of one (five plus 6 equals 11; ignore the initial ‘one’).

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

- If the gambler or bank gets a value of eight or nine, the two players stand.

- If the gambler has less than 5, she takes a card. Players otherwise stand.

- If the player holds, the bank takes a card on a total lower than five. If the gambler takes a card, a table is employed to decide if the banker stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The higher of the 2 totals wins. Winning wagers on the bank payout 19 to 20 (equal cash less a 5% rake. The Rake is tracked and cleared out once you leave the table so ensure you have funds remaining just before you depart). Winning bets on the gambler pays out at 1 to 1. Winning bets for tie normally pays out at 8 to 1 but sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a bad bet as ties occur lower than 1 in every ten hands. Be cautious of putting money on a tie. Although odds are astonishingly greater for 9:1 vs. eight to one)

Gambled on correctly punto banco gives relatively decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Strategy

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has quite a few familiar myths. One of which is similar to a false impression in roulette. The past isn’t an indicator of future outcomes. Recording past results at a table is a waste of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper needs.

The most accepted and almost certainly the most accomplished strategy is the one, three, two, six plan. This tactic is employed to build up winnings and minimizing losses.

Begin by wagering one dollar. If you win, add one more to the 2 on the game table for a grand total of three dollars on the second bet. Should you win you will retain six on the game table, remove four so you are left with 2 on the third round. Should you succeed on the third round, put down two on the four on the table for a grand total of six on the 4th bet.

If you don’t win on the initial round, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the initial bet followed by a loss on the second causes a hit of two. Success on the first 2 with a hit on the 3rd gives you with a profit of 2. And success on the first 3 with a hit on the 4th means you experience no loss. Succeeding at all four bets gives you with twelve, a take of 10. This means you are able to give up the second round 5 instances for every favorable run of four wagers and still experience no loss.
