Baccarat Hall of Fame Member kachatz1 Posted December 9, 2014 Baccarat Hall of Fame Member Report Share Posted December 9, 2014 I got up and left...22 hands into a shoe yesterday am about 10:30 @ NYNY and I am in recovery mode (1,2,4 progression), making my 4 unit "recovery bet" ( from two previous losses)I am betting on PLAYER.First 4 cards look like this:P = K6B = J4Dealer " deals " a 6 to P, and a 9 to BBANKER wins 3-over-2, right?Good thing I had consumed a few cups of Java, as just as he reached for my $100, I " woke up" and realized he should not have "hit" the Player Side, but in fact that 6-card belonged on the banker side ( and the 9-card should never have come out)Held up my hands, explained the error to dealer,who apologized and called over the floor manager.Floor manager comes over and immediately declares" FREE HAND"Whoaaaa, slow down! I explain carefully to the Floor Manager, including touching the 6-card with my finger and sliding it over to the Banker side, pushing the 9-card aside.Player wins 6-over-0, right????Floor Manager instructs Dealer to pick up all cards, including all those still in the shoe, and declares " NEW SHOE" , before walking over to the PaiGow game...Did I ever get paid? Nope...OK, so here is a lesson rarely talked about on this forum...especially directed towards newbies...The " drawing rules" for Baccarat are relatively simple, but can be misconstrued /misinterpreted rather easily. Sometimes such mistakes may " help you", but I certainly do not wish for an uninformed/ill-timed error to cost a.n.y.b.o.d.y. a problem, accidental or otherwise...Should I have caught it sooner?-----YESWould I have pointed out the error, even if it had helped me win the hand? -----YES, I still would have...So, Do you know the drawing rules? Printed right on back of many Baccarat Cards...And what would you have done?I colored-up and left before the next shoe even started...BAD KARMA, to say the least....and I never like to play with a chip-on-my shoulder clouding my decision-making/focus on the game...
