Many new side bets are not included though.
Anyway and as far as we know, in practictal terms most side bets are really vulnerable by playing them as a team, knowing that it’s forbidden to use a cell phone at the table but railbirds belonging to a team could.
That’s why in many casinos 8-deck shoes are offered cutting off from the play at least two decks, thus erasing any possible player’s edge.
To get an idea about how much sophisticated could be a given side bet approach you need to attend certain chinese forums, providing to be able to access them and understanding chinese characters.
(A chinese good friend will help a lot) 🙂
