You are seriously mistaken the facts.
Uh, you are seriously mistaken on your reading interpretation.
If baccarat has a fixed set of cards and after a few cards have been dealt everybody can know which ones are remaining.
I don't believe that's what I said. I did say that once the first card is dealt, the shoe is set in stone and nothing will change the outcome. I did not say that everybody knows which cards are remaining.
Do not create a new "fallacy" that baccarat is predictable or has more predictability with compare to roulette.
No, I did not say that either. I believe you are referring to my statement that "trend" players may have a better chance at baccarat than roulette for the reasons mentioned earlier.
It could however, be a better game for EC players due to lower house edge.
On that statement we both agree.
Now, on to the subject of baccarat. I posted up that original message to show people that there actually may be ways to take money out of the casinos by using a structured, well thought out and tested method of play. I cannot recall EVER seeing a message like the original one where a former baccarat player comes into a roulette forum and expounds to the world that he's now winning at the game. Has anyone ever taken the time to think about why that is?
We all understand the basics of gambling (or we should) and understand what won't work but we continue to see variations of the same, tired, losing ways of play. How many ways can you manipulate columns and dozens before you run out of permutations of increasing wagers? Yet the subject continues to be brought up year after year and has been since as long as I can remember. (Uh, that's pre-computer for most of you).
I'm not really sure why I'm continuing this discussion, but it's Saturday and the Keurig machine is working just fine so while listening to Armin Van Buuren in the background, I figured I'd just type away.
Enough for now. All I wanted to do was show that there are people who are excited to learn something and then realize that they were playing all wrong until they were made aware of how to take a different look at the game. The original statement about how brain dead most people were playing really struck a nerve with me and that's the reason I posted it up here.
