## Baccarat Banque Practices and Strategy

Baccarat Banque Policies

Baccarat banque is wagered on with eight decks in a dealing shoe. Cards below 10 are valued at their printed number while at the same time 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is one. Bets are made on the ‘bank’, the ‘player’, or on a tie (these aren’t really people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two hands of two cards are then dealt to the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The score for each hand is the sum total of the two cards, although the first digit is dumped. For instance, a hand of five and six has a value of 1 (five plus six equals 11; dump the 1st ‘one’).

A additional card could be given using the following rules:

- If the player or bank gets a value of 8 or nine, the two players stay.

- If the player has five or less, he hits. Players otherwise stay.

- If the player stands, the house hits on five or less. If the gambler takes a card, a table is employed to see if the bank stays or hits.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two totals wins. Winning wagers on the house pay out 19:20 (equal money minus a 5% commission. Commission are kept track of and cleared out when you depart the table so be sure to still have money around just before you head out). Winning wagers on the gambler pays out at 1:1. Winning bets for tie normally pay 8 to 1 but sometimes 9 to 1. (This is a bad wager as ties occur less than 1 in every 10 rounds. Be wary of putting money on a tie. However odds are substantially better for 9 to 1 vs. 8:1)

Wagered on correctly baccarat banque provides relatively good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Punto Banco Method

As with all games baccarat chemin de fer has quite a few general misunderstandings. One of which is the same as a absurdity in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of events yet to happen. Tracking past outcomes on a sheet of paper is a bad use of paper and an insult to the tree that surrendered its life for our paper desires.

The most accepted and likely the most successful method is the one-three-two-six tactic. This technique is deployed to pump up profits and limit losses.

Begin by betting one dollar. If you win, add another to the 2 on the game table for a sum of 3 units on the second bet. If you win you will retain six on the table, subtract 4 so you have two on the third bet. If you come away with a win on the third bet, add 2 on the four on the table for a grand total of six on the fourth round.

Should you don’t win on the 1st wager, you take a loss of one. A profit on the initial round followed by a hit on the 2nd causes a hit of 2. Wins on the 1st two with a loss on the 3rd provides you with a take of 2. And wins on the initial 3 with a hit on the fourth means you experience no loss. Winning all 4 wagers gives you with twelve, a gain of ten. This means you can not win on the 2nd bet 5 times for every successful streak of four rounds and still are even.
