What a bunch of unbelievable shenanigans!  Seriously sad!  I think last night tops the retards of the retards with a new level of imbecilic-ism!

I did okay, far from what I should have done and the opposite end of the rainbow from what any normal table of baccarat players would've done  a few years ago.  I don't know if it is all the info and all the random these people acquire off the internet or what, but the way they wager and the amount of funds they lose---is south of sad! 

2 Shoes of the 3, I stayed for were perfect set-ups and perfect follows for the player for huge sections.  There was one section where it was 2's (pairs) for like 6 cuts and then a 6 repeater for the Banker and then a 9 repeater for the Player.  Then right back to 2's (pairs) for another 6 or 7 sections.  Also almost every single natural 'cut' as well.  Other signs and warnings, I cannot believe it.  At least 15 players lost in excess of $5,000.00 each and several $10,000.00. 

And what floors me, they lose their money, and they buy-in heavier and heavier and heavier and never stop.  Hell bent on the 'cut' no matter what or the repeater when it is determined to 'cut'. 

But what gets me the most, there has been an extremely young Asian male, early 20's at best.  He does good for a few hands and then everyone follows him--no matter what.  And, these 2's were give me's, very visible.  Especially with the repeated natural cutting to the opposites side.  What ever happened to the old, "Play it until it falls off" type of scenario?  Just lose the last one.

Nope, let's do table max a half dozen times and then we can really try to put their lights out and take all their chips from the dealer's rack.  All they wind up doing is falling and falling and falling deeper and deeper.  What is so disturbing is the results were there, all you had to do was follow them and smack the house, old school.

Understanding your play, successful players all know they have:

Dependency on other players or against them
Money Management
Buy-in Adherence
Recognition of sections/turning points and shoe ratios
Risk of ruin, variations, house advantages, etc.
Other wagering techniques and strategies.

Good players also 100% understand the following as well:

The shoe and its presentments
Turning Points
Time Played
Other non-controlled player quagmires.

Baccarat Forum / Ratios, Understandings, Direction

3 Ratios of the Shoe:

1)  Strong Ratio.  Controlled creation and appearance.  Obvious, sectioned and distinctive formation of patterns.  Strong, whether that is repetitive or weak or anything in-between, just once again, numerous occurring event within a section.  I have won more money of these than anything and likewise, learned to stop when they stop, unlike most players.  My own desire would be old school, is to follow it and lose only my last wager when I was triggered bu the presence of the ratio.

2)  Sound Ratio.  Equally orderly response.  Everything happening in-between, the above and the below two ratios.

3)  Background Ratio.  Continuous Probability.  Swing to even out, not much longevity of anything, but necessary and always has to happen best defines by regression to the mean.  The most dangerous and hardest wagers to be successful on.

Understanding:  The ability to understand the shoe you are playing.  Easier said than done! 

Background & Understanding:  Everything creeping up, more so than direct up front.  Complicated by the player being frustrated, aggravated and clouded.

Presentments:  Formation and everything else being presented from the shoe.  All reality, all actual, nothing in pretense or possibilities.  The player's ability to recognize it and stop trying to change the shoe and continually wagering for what he wants rather than just going along with the shoe.

Directions: Giving up the one sided one tracked mind of the average player.  'North' and literally subscribing to and believing in all directions, N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW.

Once you get serious and really desire to be a successful baccarat player, you will realize the game is not about approaching it from one direction, let's say that us from the 'North'.  The was more successful players approach it is from 8 different directions at once, North-Northeast, East, Southeast, South, Southwest, West and Northwest.

Not a system, kind of a guideline or let's better yet say---'A Guardrail' while playing.  I do attempt to keep the following in my forethought:

6's and 7's, where as the 7 is over the 6 will continue for at least one more win;

Naturals, 9's over 8's or 8's/9's tying.  Depending on how many the Players or Bankers are in the rears, when a Natural beats a Natural already drawn, that is a hint the side will play catch up, somewhat;

Fortune 7's tending to cut--highest majority of the times;

Tie after several repeats, tend to cut.  (repeats meaning a couple of naturals or the winning side winning with the same numbers, etc.);
Stronger more times in middle within the 1/3rd to 2/3rds section, say the 20th to the 60th hands;

When the repeating streaks start to beat the other sides 7's and 3 card 8's, etc.  Especially with 3rd card draws or by the losing side being reduced by their 3rd card draw.  The opposite side is in for a fresh run or a continue run.

The Ultimate Book of Card Games
'The Comprehensive Guide to More Than 350 Games'
Written by:  Scott McNeely (2009)

Unique and a great little reference book.  Fantastic to pick up for a few min's and learn something. 
It has a terms section as well.  Describes just about everything there is in card games.

I have it in my library of books.  Fun and interesting, anyone serious or involved in the overall aspect
of casinos and gambling will be interested in this book for a reference point.

A great little all around book to reference to regarding hundreds of card games played everywhere.

The main sections are: 1 Player Games; 2 Player Games; 3 Player Games; 4 Player Games; Multi
Player Games; Partnership Games; Betting Games and a small Games for Kids section at the end.

I highly recommend this book for the person that has a library of books in the same area.

This is how the BBP mechanical scheme fares on the last shoe presented:

As Al correctly pointed out, any single shoe presents "turning points", spots where some previous patterns stop to exist giving place to other numerous patterns difficult to be chased.
If we are whimsically adopting a multi pattern strategy (dominating sides, singles, doubles, streaks, etc) directed to bet a lot of hands we are destined to fall in the realm of uncertainty even though in the shortest terms we could have the best of it.


Once I discovered what I define as, "Sections and Turning Points", I drastically increased my advantages if (and only if) my mind was clear and my vision unfocused on certain events and all that as I have written about regarding this.

If you can open you mind and unclutter it from your past wins and losses and how those incurred, you will be better off.  Easier said than done!

On the betting progression, you say 1 2 4.  Why not 1-2 -1 -2 if losing, then 1-2-4 if winning.  Just a thought.

Not sounding rude or wise, but whatever you are most comfortable with.

For myself, I have found 1-3-2-6 gives myself the most comfort.  I also do flat bet and parlay once or twice, no matter if winning or losing.  I seldom go past those (2 times) consecutively, unless I am into a '1 + 4 Side Parlay wager', but that for myself, is normally coinciding with another wager anyway.
