Trying to make a game of chance a game of skill

I’m as guilty as anyone for wanting to crack baccarat, but after tearing the game apart I can only conclude that it’s a 50/50 game of chance, not a game of skill. Because baccarat is typically played by many players against the house at the same time, it’s the norm for people to be yelling at each other “I told you so!” when their prediction of the next hand turns out to be true. But the sad truth is that no amount of group consciousness is going to change the physical distribution of a deck of cards. It’s a random series of events for everybody.
