We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
That is no biggie for his company. The story got me looking into the game of Baccarat. I have never played it. It's a card game, a game of chance with some more complicated versions like Chemin de Fer which I believe is what James Bond enjoyed. Punto banco is the common version of the game.
Is any skill involved in the betting component? I am not clear on that but it mainly seems to be about the adrenaline.

I used to go to Las Vegas when I was in college and one night saw a guy make 22 passes with the dice at a craps table. He was there all night and millions changed hands. In craps a lot of people are betting various combinations but I saw those dice displayed in a window the next time I was there. I don't know how much the house lost but they used the event for marketing and probably made back what they lost.
I used to play blackjack and win, then play craps and lose it back.
