In theory, if you watch/play long enough and always count the 10s, wouldn't there would be a situation in which there would be all 10s left in an 8 deck shoe (even before hitting the cut card)? You could then make a max bet on tie, knowing it will come up 0-0. In an 8 deck shoe there are 128 10-value cards. I would think on rare occasions this situation would actually happen and you would know you're going to win. I know the general consensus is bac isn't worth counting, but this is a GUARANTEED win if you ever see it. Anybody know the probability or frequency of seeing this situation?
You can read this about the Tie Bet in general:
Eliot Jacobson, Ph.D. shows that there's almost nothing there on 8-to-1 pays. Almost nothing on 9-1, either, but more than nothing.
Here is another one about Ties and your specific scenario:
If you scroll roughly three-quarters of the way down that page, what you will find is that all-0's occur with this frequency based on the cutoffs:
12 Cards- 1 in 2,866,173 Hands
14 Cards- 1 in 30,104,148 Hands
16 Cards- 1 in 404,381,500 Hands
18+ Cards- Not even expected to happen once in 20,000,000 shoes.
I guess what I'm saying is get comfortable, because you're going to be watching Baccarat for awhile.
