Does anyone know how to convert the info from this table:

to include an "or better" column?

E.g., I am not really interested in the fact that the probability of winning 3 straight banker hands followed by a player win is 6.42 percent.

Much more useful would be what is the probability of winning 3 hands or better?

So obviously it is somewhere greater than 6.42 percent, but by how much?

Edit: I think maybe this was a dumb question because I could just add up all the probabilities after the number I wanted. Tedious but it should work.

using a streak calculator HERE with 70 hands per shoe (you can play with the numbers if you like) using .506825 for a banker win:

99.7426% of at least 1 run of 3 or more banker hands.

here is a table for Baccarat Banker streaks per shoe: (3+ = 3 or more)

Hope this helps. My computer simulations shows the theoretical numbers to be correct.

So where is the printout that will show me that it is the very next three hands that will be a Banker Streak. Now that is the printout I'd surely love to have!

Me too!

The story goes, my wife and one of her girlfriends did the math last year on just that, but was not happy with the results (huh?) and when we were all in Las Vegas last year this time during the WSOP she gave the only printout to Maria Ho in exchange for her autographed photo.

I now have that signed photo!

FYI: Maria will win the Main Event next year. Took a bad beat yesterday.

Who ever wins with JJ these days? Not me.

update:she lost to JJ, she flopped a straight but JJ saw a set and the river paired the board for Jacks full.

Still love Maria!

The only way to win with JJ is to fold :)

Hi- Ive just been checking out some old threads and was wondering what the variance was like for these various number of streaks?

For example did you often get through more than 2 shoes without seeing a player streak of 4 or more?

Its kinda inevitable that the player has a 4+ streak. Its very very rare to not have a player streak of 4+. Espically on a 8 deck shoe

Best ive done as a dealer is 16 Player streak and 22 Banker streak...not in the same shoe ofcourse haha

Did you know that you can use a long streak of up to 5 to 6 outcomes in the first 12 to 17 hands and compare it to 25 to 30 outcomes later and it would jump within 3 to four hands? Find out how this works at the School of Baccarat using the 7TWELVE17 method! =D

I must ask a question here. Suppose there is a streak of WWWWTWWWTWWWL. Is this being accounted as 10-in a row?, or as 4-3-3? (typo)

I ask because using WoO data in Baccarat--->Appendix 1 one can conclude that 81 hands on average will be dealt from an 8-deck shoe given the traditional and standard rules of the game. Out of those 81 hands, 7.7 will be a Tie (lets call it 8 for the purpose of the Java sim linked to previously).

**EDIT** My analysis above was off.... for some reason I wrote 13 burn cards, it is 16 by tradition. This changes the analysis by removing one round from the mistaken computations.

The OP was corrected, and finalized below.

The stop-card at 16 cards with an average burn of 6.5 cards yields 22.5 cards

79 Full rounds are contested. Upon the 80th, the stop card appears. On average 2 cards past stop card.

The last round (81st) is played at an average of 5 cards... total 7 cards past stop card.

Penetration is therefore 416-22.5+7 = 400.5 cards or 96.27%
