deregulation of gambling in California led to the
invention of a new and interesting games known as
Super Pan Nine. While the games is a recent innovation,
it harkens back to the spirit of the older Online
Baccarat Gamess. Syndicates have formed in California
to challenge the games, depending on their card skill
for their advantage, much as the European syndicates
formed to take on all-comers with Online Baccarat
Games en banque.
The games has two versions, one in which the bank
can be held by the players, and one in which the casino
is the permanent banker. The games uses six or eight
decks stripped of 7s, 8s, 9s, and lOs (face cards
are not removed). The players and banker are dealt
three cards face down. The players decide whether
to draw a fourth card or not, with the object of getting
a total as close to 9 as possible. They have complete
discretion on whether to draw the fourth card.
Scoring is the same as in other forms of Online Baccarat
Games. If a fourth card is drawn, this will be dealt
face up. If the casino is banking the games, the house
will draw a fourth card if its total is between 0
and 5, but not otherwise. If a player holds the bank,
he has the freedom to draw as he wishes. The higher
total wins and no money changes hands in the event
of a tie. There is a side bet on a tie with a 7 to
1 payoff Players and player-bankers are each paid
off at 19 to 20 if they win.
are three easy ways to prevent marked cards from impacting
- As a matter of courtesy to your guests and to preempt
any unspoken concerns that you marked cards before
the game, you should keep the new decks wrapped and
sealed. Open them in front of everyone just before
the game starts.
- Replace your decks periodically, at least before
every game (unless you are using casino-type plastic
cards, of course). Changing them in the middle of
a long session is not a bad idea either.
- Keep an eye on the cards during the course of the
game. If you can identify a card without seeing its
face, correct the discrepancy or replace the deck
