## Baccarat Banque Practices and Strategy

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Rules

Punto banco is wagered on with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards below 10 are counted at their printed value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is one. Bets are placed on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘bank’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the sum of the cards, but the first number is discarded. e.g., a hand of 5 and 6 has a total of 1 (5 plus six = 11; ignore the 1st ‘one’).

A third card will be given out based on the following rules:

- If the player or house gets a total of eight or 9, the two players hold.

- If the gambler has less than five, she hits. Players otherwise stand.

- If the player stays, the banker takes a card on a value less than 5. If the player takes a card, a chart is employed to determine if the bank holds or takes a card.

Baccarat Banque Odds

The higher of the two totals wins. Winning bets on the banker pay out 19:20 (even money minus a 5 percent rake. The Rake is kept track of and paid off once you depart the table so ensure you still have money left before you quit). Winning wagers on the gambler pays one to one. Winning bets for tie frequently pays eight to one but sometimes nine to one. (This is a bad wager as ties occur lower than 1 in every ten rounds. Be wary of betting on a tie. However odds are substantially greater for nine to one vs. 8 to 1)

Played properly baccarat banque provides relatively good odds, apart from the tie wager of course.

Punto Banco Scheme

As with all games punto banco has quite a few established misconceptions. One of which is close to a misunderstanding in roulette. The past isn’t a fore-teller of events about to happen. Keeping score of previous outcomes on a chart is a bad use of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our stationary needs.

The most common and possibly the most acknowledged method is the one-three-two-six plan. This plan is employed to maximize winnings and minimizing risk.

Begin by wagering one chip. If you succeed, add 1 more to the two on the table for a sum of 3 units on the second bet. Should you win you will retain 6 on the game table, subtract four so you are left with two on the 3rd bet. If you come away with a win on the 3rd round, deposit 2 on the 4 on the game table for a grand total of six on the 4th round.

Should you do not win on the first wager, you take a hit of 1. A win on the 1st bet followed by a loss on the 2nd creates a loss of two. Success on the 1st two with a defeat on the third provides you with a gain of two. And success on the first three with a hit on the fourth means you break even. Winning all 4 wagers leaves you with 12, a take of ten. This means you will be able to give up the 2nd bet five instances for every successful run of 4 wagers and in the end, balance the books.
