Just wondering. if any of you that played baccarat in B&M Casinos back prior to 2005 or so, have you physically noticed these days how--the majority of the players continually playing for the 'cut', 1's and 2's refusing to wager with any streaks of any type--meaning no repetitive winning the first one and just pull down the consecutive wins, losing only the last one when it actually does 'cut' on its own? Also the score card thing with the scoring vertical instead of horizontal, which at least in the USA at the majority of casinos around it was virtually never done or very few players would ever do it.
To myself, I visually see it with predominance as compared to pre-2005'ish or so. At least at all the places I play anyways.
IMO, all the change came about with the introduction of the Midi/Macau style tables and the elimination of the 14 players/3 dealer big tables that started in the early 2000's. As well as the proliferation of the internet? Maybe?
Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Reno, Southern California, Connecticut, etc., and some of the parts of the Midwest is what I am familiar with along with Seminole in South Florida but they really didn't get their tables until after 2008 anyway.
