Can anybody tell me the math to work out the probability of player winning 10 + hands more than banker in x hands?

Time will tell

One reasonable approach is to use the cumulative Bernoulli distribution. Set the probability of success equal to the probability of winning your game (Baccarat or Roulette, I can't tell). X is the number of trials, and (x+10)/2 is the number of successes.

using ((x+10)/2)-1 and Excel

= 1 - BINOMDIST(((A2+10)/2)-1,A2,0.493175,TRUE)

0.493175 = Player win for 8 deck Bacc

the cumulative Bernoulli distribution is for x or less

example where x = 36 hands

(36+10)/2 = 23 wins (and 13 losses for the 10 margin)

but using the BINOMDIST() we need to calculate 22 or less wins (22 to 0)

and subtract that value from 1

of course one can use the binomial probability dist formula and calculate the probability of exactly

23 to 36 successes and add them all up

a lot of math work if doing by hand by either method

here is a table that just appeared

close to some simulations I have seen

7craps would you have a similar table for other differentials in particular 7 and 15?
