Baccarat (part 2)

In a 8-deck shoe:

416 cards: 8 x 52

160 ODD (A, 3, 5, 7, 9): 5 x 4 x 8 represent 38.46% of the cards.

256 EVEN (2, 4, 6, 8, X, J, Q, K): 8 x 4 x 8 repr. 61.54% of cards.

Making an analysis of hand total possible:

E= even card O= odd card

for 2-cards:

E + E = E; 38.46% x 38.46% = 37.87% of all 2-cards total.

0 + E = E + O = 47.84%

O + O = 14.79%

So: even tot: 37.87% and odd tot: 62.13% (for 2-cards tot)

For 3-cards hand:

E + E + E = 23.3%

E + E + O = E + O + E = O + E + E = 43.70%

E + O + O = O + E + O = O + O + E = 27.31%

O + O + O = 5.69%

So: even tot: 50.61% and odd tot: 49.39%

Total, 2 and 3-cards total together:

EVEN HANDS: (37.87% X 52.165%) + (50.61% X 47.835%) = 43.9642%

ODD HANDS: (62.13% X 52.165%) + (49.39% X 47.835%) = 56.0358%

To have an analysis in function of the game we need to take account of the rules of the game. As you see more odd total than even tot by a wide margin.
