Visions—Pressures & Psychology
For those of you that think there is no such factors as those I put above, are currently in fantasy land of ‘I don’t know where’ and very oblivious to the gambling effect of winning or losing money within a casino. Period.
With that said, I have been able to define those areas and I have written about them in detail within my Blog and the Baccarat Room here in BetSelection.
There certainly are other factors and considerations in baccarat. But those are my main three that are within my ‘intangible’ and ‘non-shoe/non game’ category. Hopefully you understand? You have to function when you play, the same as you have to perform when and if you do sports. Your body and fitness is your ammunition in sports, no? Your brain including your sub-conscious and your conscious states (frame-of-mind, etc.) is your intangible fuel along with your body for the tangible power. I transpose that to gambling as well.
I have wrote about all these as well within my Blog and the Baccarat Room here on BetSelection. But I will throw out a recap and thoughts pertaining to each.
Within my Blog on the board, at: https://betselection.cc/alrelax's-blog/
, you will be able to read my thoughts in a series of posts I wrote, “1-10 in a Series) contained all within the first page of the highlighted section at the above link. I am writing the below with a twist because of what happened to my buddy ‘H-Money’ this morning at the casino and his loss.
My vision focuses on what is being presented, how it is being presented and what is yet to be presented. This more than anything else is such an important ingredient to winning at baccarat. If you can divide up the shoe into ‘sections’ that will allow you to even focus greater and with more precision. Almost every shoe will have ‘sections’ and ‘turning points’, they represent what the shoe is producing and how it was produced, both. For whatever reason and even if I could define the reason it does not matter, if I can have the vision to identify what is happening and I wager on it—my winning wager is easily parlayed and the power and fuel I receive from something like that, is extremely intense and allows myself to pounce easily on an opportunity rather than fighting it and negatively seeing what is positively happening. Here, in layman’s terms. I much rather have a $300.00 wager on the Banker and have it win, parlay my second one to $600.00 and have that one win also, wager $900.00 on the 3rd attempt at the Banker and stack up $300.00 back in my chip stack so I have a zero risk amount at what might happen---if I lose. But if the Banker goes another 8 repeats I will pull down $7,200.00 rather than predicting the cut is coming and continually wagering on the Player because of the consistency of 1’s, 2’s and 3’s as being the most favorable in baccarat, etc. and everyone else was wagering that way. My ‘vision’ saw through the player and banker winning/losing hand total point values with their reductions and additions, as well as the ‘sections’ and ‘turning points’ as well as what had or had not happened, etc., etc., and with completely clear frame-of-mind, ‘vision’ produced a opportunity that was coming forth for presentment and I saw it.
To go into the game with the ‘vision’ of winning money based upon mechanical pre-scheduled events that I learned from the statistical mathematics of the game through the internet and systems authors, I much rather be selling magical dust in a container, door-to-door with some kind of religious meaning. Pressure:
To have pressure from your borrowed bankroll or buy-in funds will be huge and cause you to make extremely poor decisions as well as false promises to yourself that you can make money. Any and all pressure from personal affairs, business matters and other concerns must be checked at the door or you will be adding huge negativity to your mind-set that will affect you in horrible ways. Simple. Period.
As well, you must have the comfort and safety of a bankroll and buy-in that will not matter in your life if it is lost or dwindles down. Your buy-in, IMO and experience must be disposable and considered, viewed and handled as ‘risk’ capital that can be lost without any effect upon yourself for the immediate time. The pressure and the clouded vision that will happen because you are deficient in the financial end will almost always be devastating to yourself. Psychology:
Not easily understood or in fact, believed by most in the gambling arena. You sub-conscious and your conscious mind-sets are huge contributing factors to your decision making ability at the table. Believe it or not. If you believe something because so-and-so put a Voodoo curse at there or sprinkled magical dust on the cards or someone points to the score board and says it will be ‘such-and-such’ because the other side has to catch up, you are the casino’s best friend and the reason they installed those large visible score boards with the multiple roads. All you will wind up doing is catching a ‘dragons tail’ with 15 or so winning hands and then losing another 105 hands by following or applying your wisdom you believe you have from whatever it is caused you to win those 15 hands.
The effect of psych has a terrific amount to do with wagering and the beliefs of a player. Be careful and 100% conscious of what you are doing and why you are doing something when wagering.
