    Strategy for 'Casino War'

    Would any Professionals like to chime in?

    Watched a guy play 'Casino War' the other day. He was tracking on a baccarat card. I looked over his shoulder to see how or what he was tracking but he got pissed so I backed-off

    Sammy say it ain't so, you're "that guy" that stands behind a player at the tables. Nothing pisses me off more then a brokedikk shithead standing behind me analyzing my play.

    I dont generally... Sammy has seen it all , well , almost

    But I 'know' this guy... Not personally but played with him at the craps & baccarat tables. He plays well so I was a bit surprised to see him playing 'Casino War' for nice $$$

    there is no strategy that works

    no matter what cards are gone there is no advantage to the player because you each get a card

    the only decision you can make is whether or not to play war if you push (which only happens 1/13th of the time) and even then it doesn't matter what cards are gone
