Wow, is that slow. My reaction surprised me as I am already of the opinion internet play is too fast, that is, I am capable of accepting slower as more sane for -EV play, but this is excruciating.



Live dealer play is always slow. It helps to have a table to yourself.

They really need to allow you to click on something that indicates when the player makes a decision, he is OK with skipping the countdown to the next step. This is especially evident with the insurance bet.



On most poker sites you can make your decision in advance, including conditional decisions like "Check if nobody raises." However, with this software at least, you can't. I've seen another live dealer place where everybody played against the same hand, which helped.

At this place sometimes the players try to flirt with the dealer or fight with each other to kill the down time.

D'oh! You're right. I got confused with my versions of commission-free baccarat there for a second. Stupid mistake. I owe you 20 push-ups.



I'll waive the 20 push ups, i'm just glad the info on the U.K variant page is correct, and that the error was on the new page... i wasn't sure which way round the error was.

I only noticed it because i recently referenced that page. We had a real high roller whale come in, he wanted to play Baccarat, and we offer the commission free 'U.K variant'. He was used to traditional Baccarat, and wanted to know the difference in the house edge between them, so i printed out that page and showed it to him. Even quipping that he could take these figures to the 'Bank', or 'Player' if he prefers, after he asked how reliable the info was, and that it was the most reliable gaming info on the web. After we established that Player was the better bet, he then proceeded to bet table max on Player to the tune of a six figure loss, so i'm glad i wasn't indirectly responsible for that by providing incorrect information... Never doubted you for a second!

I still feel I owe a debt to my readers for the error so I still consider it a debt, should we ever meet.

Yes, that commission free baccarat page has been up for years and I'm sure referring to thousands of times. I just got confused for a moment when I wrote up that new page. Glad all is good with your whale and we can't be blamed for the six-figure loss.
