Baccarat Banque Rules and Strategy

Punto Banco Principles

Baccarat chemin de fer is gambled on with 8 decks of cards in a shoe. Cards under ten are valued at face value and with Ten, Jack, Queen, King are zero, and Ace is one. Bets are placed on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not actual people; they just represent the two hands to be dealt).

Two hands of 2 cards are then given to the ‘banker’ and ‘player’. The score for each hand is the sum of the two cards, although the 1st number is dropped. For instance, a hand of five and 6 has a total of one (5 plus six equals 11; drop the initial ‘one’).

A third card can be given based on the following rules:

- If the gambler or banker gets a value of eight or 9, the two players stand.

- If the player has less than 5, she hits. Players otherwise hold.

- If the player stays, the banker takes a card on five or lower. If the player takes a card, a guide is used to determine if the banker stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Odds

The higher of the two scores wins. Winning wagers on the house payout 19:20 (even money less a 5 percent rake. Commission are tracked and paid off when you quit the table so make sure you have money left over before you quit). Winning wagers on the gambler pays one to one. Winning wagers for tie normally pay 8:1 but on occasion nine to one. (This is a bad bet as a tie occurs lower than 1 in every 10 hands. Be wary of wagering on a tie. However odds are substantially better for nine to one vs. 8:1)

Wagered on properly baccarat chemin de fer gives relatively good odds, apart from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Banque Strategy

As with all games baccarat banque has some general myths. One of which is the same as a false impression in roulette. The past is not a harbinger of future actions. Keeping track of previous results at a table is a waste of paper and an insult to the tree that surrendered its life for our stationary desires.

The most established and likely the most successful strategy is the one-three-two-six plan. This tactic is deployed to pump up profits and limit losses.

Start by betting 1 dollar. If you win, add one more to the two on the table for a total of 3 units on the second bet. Should you succeed you will retain 6 on the game table, pull off 4 so you have two on the 3rd wager. If you succeed on the third round, add 2 to the 4 on the game table for a grand total of six on the fourth round.

If you lose on the 1st wager, you take a hit of 1. A win on the 1st wager followed by a hit on the 2nd causes a loss of two. Success on the 1st 2 with a hit on the third provides you with a take of two. And wins on the initial three with a defeat on the fourth means you are even. Succeeding at all 4 wagers leaves you with twelve, a profit of ten. This means you are able to not win on the second wager five instances for every favorable run of 4 wagers and in the end, balance the books.
