The game Fu Bacc has begun a field trial at the Hard Rock in Lake Tahoe. It also seems to have passed muster in Washington state.

Essentially, it's a fusion of blackjack and baccarat with 3CP-ish betting...









Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

That seems to be the case. Whether this is done to keep the math simple or to defeat counting (or both) I couldn't say (although I imagine a player at third base on a busy table could glean some information if people are mucking their cards face up).

There's another section detailing how the game is dealt. While it says it can be done by hand, it seems to assume that a standard CSM will be used spitting out three cards for each player (à la 3CP or LiR). Two of the cards are placed in front of the player to form the starting hand and the third is placed above the hand acting as the optional draw card.

I'm not sure about the name. Coupled with the logo symbol it would probably best translate to "Fortune Baccarat"

Still, to english speaking people, FU might strike them the wrong way.

I'm intrigued.

The game already feels slow, but I think this is not a problem.

The betting limits don't seem to be clearly specified.
Ante is 1, play is 2, but... limit on the tie? Lucky Monkey?

It does sound like it's built for a single deck carnival shuffler, like a Shark Trap or an iDeal.

With the ante losing on a tie, one would think the tie should pay 8 to 1.
May the cards fall in your favor.

Except that the rules say you can bet on Tie without betting on the hand itself, so there is not necessarily an Ante at risk.

I don't have a computer handy, but 7 to 1 sounds like the kind of edge you might see on an eight zero roulette wheel.

Maybe if you're assuming perfect strategy on the Ante bet, but what if you're "playing for the tie"? Again, this assumes you don't have to make an Ante bet in order to make a Tie bet, which, if you ask me, doesn't make that much sense.

Someone who just lost on regular baccarat might sit down at this game just because they appreciate the sentiment. "FU bacc!"

The rules did say "at casino's discretion" to play the tie without the ante; thanks for making me go back and read it again. I pessimistically assume that the ante will be commonly required to get cards.
