You will notice that different card values have different effects on the probability of the next hand. Running a regression analysis on each line, the following respective 3 bar-charts indicate the quantifiable effects on probability. Banker These charts show that removing 4s and 2s have the largest positive effect on the probability of a Banker result, while removing 8s and 9s have the largest negative effect on the probability of a Banker result.

Concepts 16: Baccarat – Effects of Card Removal

Hi friends, This topic follows the study on the most beneficial cards to the Player, Banker and Tie wagers in Baccarat. The 3 tables below show the effect on the probabilities of the Player, Banker and Tie as 1, 2 and 3 cards are removed in isolation from each card value. Do take note of the changes in probability as each card is removed and their relationship to the respective wager.

Concepts 15: Most Beneficial Cards for Each Wager

Friends, The following 3 tables show the most beneficial cards for each wager. This was calculated by observing the number of times the presence of cards of these values led to a Player, Banker or Tie result. They are sorted in descending order of effect by card value. Some of the results are intuitive, others may surprise. Column 3: Player Win % Compared to Other Wagers compares the effect the card value has on a wager as compared to the other wagers, in this instance, Banker and Tie. Column 4: Player Win % by Card Value compares that card value’s effect as compared to all other card values for that particular wager. Player Card Value: Permutations Player Win % Compared to Other Wagers Player Win % by Card Value 4    1,036,330,148,130,820 44.9220% 7.7436% 0    1,035,362,791,243,780 44.8801% 7.7363% J    1,035,362,791,243,780 44.8801% 7.7363% Q    1,035,362,791,243,780 44.8801% 7.7363% K    1,035,362,791,243,780 44.8801% 7.7363% 1    1,034,132,990,550,020 44.8268% 7.7272% 3    1,032,891,882,528,770

Concepts 14: Baccarat 1st Card Advantage

All right folks. First off, please understand that having a 1st-card advantage means that the player has somehow found out what the first card of the as-yet undealed coup is. This is at worst cheating or at best, if the dealer or procedures are weak, advantage play. 1st-card advantage is essentially a study of all the possible card permutations that start with Ace through to King that result in a Player, Banker or Tie result from the remaining cards in the shoe. The 2 tables below show that knowing that the 1st card is a 1-5 or 10-K, would give a small advantage on the Banker wager. Knowledge of the 1st card being 6-9 would give an increasing advantage on the Player wager, with knowing a 1st card as being 9 giving a 21% advantage on the Player wager. Below is a table that shows the probabilities before the start of the shoe: Card Value: Player Win Banker Win Tie

Baccarat: Conditions for Positive Expectation on Side Wagers

In simulating different conditions of a Baccarat shoe, the following instances were observed: Wager refers to the wager type studied – Pairs, Wins on Natural 9s (WN9) and Wins on Natural 8s (WN8). Win % Probability indicates the percentage probability of that result occurring. Expectation, based on 11:1 for Pairs and 8:1 for Wins on Natural 8s and 9s, shows the expectation (player’s edge) of the respective wagers with the state of the shoe on the right. 1 – K indicates how many cards of that value have been dealt. Wager Win % Probability Expectation 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 J Q K Pairs 8.66% 3.9% 5 23 23 23 23 23 23 23 23 23 23 23 23 Pairs 25.02% 200.2% 5 5 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 WN9 14.27% 28.4% 25 25 25 25 25 25 25 25 5 5 5 5 5 WN8 13.21% 18.9% 25
