I never knew Baccarat was a Black Jack style game. Nobody tell MDawg.

It is not.
I think the casino may have heard a rumor about someone winning at baccarat and is erring on the side of paranoia.

If their Baccarat tables have the Dragon 7 bonus or some variation, that could be the source of the paranoia.

How is dragon 7 bonus exploitable?

It's been discussed here in the past a handful of times; it's mildly countable. I believe the general consensus is that it's not worth a card counter's time for the meager return it produces, and one-deck penetration pretty much renders counting useless.

I actually am really glad I clicked the video. I've seen, read, and played too much blackjack I'm not sure if it's the fun english accent, but I really enjoyed this video. I just think he got most everything right.... from the training, testing, practice table hours, software, etc, etc, etc. Obviously he doesn't even live in the states so I'm sure he's not too worried about getting booted from places, so all the more reason to camp out and play until they tell you not to play anymore.

I imagine they told him no more "blackjack style" games like bac because you can "technically" get a tiny edge by counting in bac? Even so I just really enjoyed the adventure he took us on.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I think he may have been a guest recently on GWAE.

Hopefully again, soon. I got the feeling there are many more stories to be told.
May the cards fall in your favor.

So the latest YouTube video is up from this guy and he got some pretty funny backoffs and one attempt that failed through ineptitude on the staffs part. Loving this series. Also he claims to be up about $15,000 so far, I believe the goal is to double the investors buyin.

I just watched the video. Kudos to the casino manager for being polite in the back-off and the player for not being argumentative about it.

It is not that strange he excluded baccarat. Some of the side bets are countable, but not to a degree it's worth a counters time. If I were the casino manager and not sure about baccarat, I would allow it just to see if the counter moved over to play it and if so, what did he bet on.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I think management most of the time is hell bent on just kicking people out because they find satisfaction in it and also to save their own ass/ prove their worth to other management. Casinos should take the approach of a solid sportsbook by limiting/backing off people only from what they know to be strong play and then monitoring future play in other games to learn of any weaknesses or perhaps to find out that the player will play -ev games.

Thank you for the input Wiz!

Also new video is up now, he's doing a "day in the life of a card counter" schtick for this video. He's already been backed off by 7 casinos in the Seattle area, lol. I thought most casinos were on a huge registry that was shared between them for stuff like this? Kind of interesting the loopholes that I thought were closed up aren't actually closed up.
