Does anyone know what the effect of a CSM would have on the odds of Baccarat? Is there a similar "Cut card effect" that we see with Blackjack? I assume that similarly a disproportionate amount of "10s" would show which would affect the odds somewhat.

and in a similar vein, if an online casino (since most are using a CSM format reshuffling after every hand) decided to instead play through shoes to a certain penetration, they would be setting themselves up for exposure to -ve against perfect card counting (as referenced here:which is a non-trivial amount of money. Assuming 90% deck penetration, the banker odds of getting into +ve is approx 1 out of every 7630 shoes hands, which doesn't seem to high for an online casino. Is this why most online casinos protect themselves by shuffling every hand?

EDITED: changed shoes to hands as I believe the ratio was out of the 100M simulated hands
