BTW, I agree. I found that I had erroneously scored a group of hands and when I corrected it that AQ9 vs AQ10 is the breakpoint.



Thanks for the second set of eyeballs on this, Gordon. I am a strong believer in the value of peer review.

You are missing the full house odds/pays of "3" on the return table for the Player Monster (I must say, I like the name of that wager...).

Thanks, good catch.

I'm not sure rule #14 is correct regarding the Banker Buster Bet. It seems to indicate that the bet wins or pushes, but doesn't lose.

Thanks -- fixed.

Mind blown at how fast you coded this and turned the analysis around. Not for publication of course, but have you looked at hole card strategy by chance?

Based on the video, it looks like the Banker's Buster pays 3.5 to 1; you list it as 3 to 1 in both Rule 14 and the analysis table (which, by the way, is titled "Dealer Doesn't Qualify Analysis" instead of "Banker's Buster Analysis," though that very well may have been intentional). Amazingly, that would bring the house edge down to a very respectable 1.265%, about as good as you can find for a side bet.

Also (and this is purely minutia), Gordon's handle is gordonm888 as opposed to gordon888 for the acknowledgements.

I think that in Player's Monster section, the listed house edge of 3.86% should in fact be 4.21%.

Also in that same Player's Monster section, I think the probability and return in the "Loser" row of the table should be 0.756007 and -0.756007, respectively, instead of 0.385890 and -0.385890.

Thanks for the comments and corrections. I had a formatting error in the Player's Monster section, which I just fixed.

As for the Banker's Buster, the literature I got at the show says it pays 3 to 1. I have yet to actually visit the game at the Paris.

Also, corrected gordonm888's name.
