I am not too familiar with this game, but I would like to know if this is one of those games where someone with card counting skills might excel?

There are Baccarat card counting skills that any player needs to have and so my assumption is that if you are already good at counting cards, then it's even better to delve into this game. In addition, you basically need a shoe that comes to an end.

I was reading a piece on casino city on this. One of the professionals says that you can count cards but it doesn't give an advantage because of the nature of the game. I don't quite get it because I'd have thought knowing what cards are coming would have given an edge anyway.

I was under the impression that card counting definitely did not work when playing baccarat. Am I wrong on this? Is there someone here who is knowledgeable about this subject for sure or are we just guessing here?

Like you, I think that card counting can't guarantee profits in Baccarat because of the nature of the main game. There's a really basic counting system that claims to give players an edge by showing whether to bet player or banker, but it doesn't do more than boost your chances.

Anything that improves my chances even by a little bit is always going to be welcome to me. It doesn't always have to be something that will increase your chances by 100% but any slight edge is appreciated.

From what I understand a card counting strategy in Baccarat and in Blackjack is the first and most vital skill that a player needs to develop so that you can effectively know when the player bet is worth more than the banker bet so you know when to switch wagers.
