Hi all,

Actually the question is like this: assuming the bankroll is 5000, and each bet is 100, what is the probability of losing all the bankroll within 2000 bets? i am not sure if the question make sense.

Without another constraint, like total number of hands, it should be 100%, right? BAccarat is -EV, so eventually, you're expected to crash out.

To lose 50 bets in Bacc. presuming "Banker" betting takes on average 4735.9 bets: presuming "Player" bets 4048.6 bets.
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.

It is your question, but customarily people ask what is the probability of earning 20%, 100%, or 150% before I go bankrupt. For instance some people figure that the gasoline, hotel, and dinner costs \$1000, and they want to know what is the possibility of winning back that \$1000 before losing their \$5000 bankroll.

Most people don't actually count the number of times they play.
