I actually had a chance to play baccarat at the D not too long ago. As others posted before, it was $25 min for a non-squeeze game and $100 for a squeeze game (they have both a midi-style discard bin and a mini-style discard rack so they can play it either way). When I was there, the "flapper" dancing dealers were dealing all the tables in the high-limit nook, including baccarat. I will give them credit - they really got into the game and made it a lot more animated and fun than the average baccarat dealer who just pushes the cards. They also didn't deal the game at breakneck pace, which was nice.

There were two "flapper" dealers in rotation at the table, and one was definitely more experienced at dealing baccarat than the other. Thankfully, they use an i-shoe which flashes a light to indicate if extra cards need to be drawn. Granted, you can play non-squeeze for less elsewhere, but the D really makes it a nice experience and lets the average player experience a little piece of the high-limit room luxury.

Hello good people, is The D still doing 4% commission?

Edit: I noticed in Mission's report last month he said it's 4%. So there's the answer.
Its - Possessive; It's - "It is" / "It has"; There - Location; Their - Possessive; They're - "They are"

I'm told they are going to discontinue the 4% baccarat. Evidently it didn't bring in many bac players.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Did they expect it to? Players who come in for Terpsichorean Dealers With Tits don't care 'bout no four percent commission rate. They are either trying to get bargain hunters or Tit Starers ... why would they want both?

I'm convinced it's the loud music. How can anyone think about anything in there? I played there a few times and just couldn't get over the music. That and losing 10 bets in a row....

I agree, there is no way I can play on the main casino floor because of the noise. I will still play upstairs but even that is sometimes louder than it should be.
