Punto Banco Rules and Method

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Principles

Baccarat chemin de fer is bet on with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards below ten are counted at their printed value and with 10, J, Q, K are zero, and A is 1. Bets are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these aren’t actual people; they just represent the two hands that are dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘bank’ and ‘gambler’. The value for every hand is the sum of the cards, but the first number is dumped. e.g., a hand of five and 6 has a total of one (5 plus 6 equals eleven; ignore the first ‘1′).

A additional card may be given using the rules below:

- If the gambler or banker gets a score of eight or nine, both players stay.

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

- If the gambler holds, the house takes a card on a value lower than 5. If the gambler hits, a guide is employed to decide if the house stands or hits.

Punto Banco Odds

The bigger of the two hands wins. Winning wagers on the banker payout 19:20 (even payout minus a 5% rake. The Rake is recorded and cleared out when you quit the table so be sure to have funds left over just before you quit). Winning wagers on the gambler pays 1 to 1. Winning wagers for tie typically pay 8:1 but sometimes nine to one. (This is a poor wager as a tie occurs lower than one in every 10 rounds. Be wary of putting money on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 versus eight to one)

Played properly punto banco gives pretty decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Strategy

As with all games punto banco has a few familiar misunderstandings. One of which is similar to a absurdity in roulette. The past is not an indicator of events about to happen. Tracking previous results on a chart is a bad use of paper and a snub to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper needs.

The most established and possibly the most accomplished course of action is the one-three-two-six technique. This technique is deployed to maximize earnings and limit losses.

Begin by placing 1 chip. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the game table for a sum of three dollars on the second bet. If you win you will now have six on the table, pull off four so you have two on the 3rd wager. If you win the third wager, deposit 2 to the four on the game table for a total of 6 on the fourth wager.

Should you don’t win on the first round, you take a hit of 1. A profit on the initial round followed by a loss on the second causes a loss of two. Success on the 1st two with a hit on the third gives you with a profit of two. And success on the initial 3 with a loss on the 4th means you experience no loss. Succeeding at all four wagers gives you with twelve, a take of 10. This means you can not win on the 2nd bet five instances for each favorable run of 4 rounds and still experience no loss.
