YOU. You are the only person that can help you, period.
You can only win by knowing what you are really up against.
Players winning, is directly related to correct timing if the player is not wagering in a haphazard and off the hip fashion.
There are no mechanical systems that can always win, they simply do not exist. People always have something to sell, trying to get everybody to be greedy and believe there is various ways to beat games of chance.
Control and influence over your play, decision and wagering, is the absolute key.
Your technique effects the outcome of your wagers.
Dedicated practice, patience and willpower. Those are the sound fundamentals. The same as a school class, teaching sound fundamentals before going into the explanations of the subjects.
If you are going to pay good money to take a class or buy a system, etc., make sure that it is not fiction. There are plenty of hucksters, cons and scammers selling a system of fantasy, confusion and baffling ideas that convince the player---"Hey, wait a minute, this is the Holy Grail that I have been looking for".
People unfairly attack writers for writing and wanting to express their ideas, findings and thoughts, no matter if they are correct or not. That is a fact that, complicates the situation of finding what is fiction or non-fiction.
When you are gambling you want to win. You ca not live in a fantasy world, where all you wager on and believe in or base your wagers off of, is fiction that has been written by some of our so-called 'experts' which are only snake oil salesman selling systems that cannot prevail. I do not even want to entertain the drama of the on-going crazy worthless operas at most baccarat tables with the superstitions and karma and the self-proclaimed power players think they possess, having validity and substance that leads to winning decisions. Bull-stuff to the hundredth power!
You have to understand, survive and be able to interpret what is happening. Not trying to change the winning results to the system you were made to believe in. You need a clear mind until the time presents itself that you can excel.
There will be good days and days. With the proper knowledge, you will be able to stop in your bad days and also be ahead of the game. Not self-destructing and depleting your bank roll.
Many players also are under the impression that they can influence the game/shoe. They cannot. Simply guessing right numerous times is your enemy, realize that. You ca no t influence, ca not change any present or upcoming hand. You have to have the ability and knowledge to read and understand the shoe, how it is presenting itself. You have to have the wherewithal to wager along with it. And that is probably the single biggest win-lose factor of the game of baccarat.
Most players are not focused on the results as they are presenting themselves. They are focused on their attempt to predict and have the results conform to their expectations, which is really regressing away from the mean and influential observations misinterpreted. This is what the casino, the hosts, the management of the properties count on. The player ca not stay away from bad bets. That is the exact and only reason the pens, the scorecards, the multi-thousand dollar scoreboards are bought and installed by the casino for your eyes. They influence and they control you, once you learn that and use it to your advantage, you will become a more profitable player.
Another huge downfall most players have in baccarat is the spiritual and lack of focus and all the belief in extraordinary things a player concentrates on with the hopes to change the outcome of the shoe. Well if those players would concentrate on learning the knowledge that, would benefit their decision making. Such as knowing probability, regression to the mean, influential observations, independent and dependent events, expected value and house edge, etc. Those along with practiced willpower and patience, money management and progressions, would be extremely helpful to a player. In short, forget the Voodoo and the ritual chants and gain the knowledge that leads to power.
Mentioning money management and progressions, without the proper knowledge of how to incorporate those into your bankroll, your gambling chances of winning overall at baccarat are pretty far against you. It is not easy and on the other hand, not impossible. It just takes the desire to learn how to obtain the knowledge and use the power that knowledge can give you.
Learning is very important, knowledge is power. Knowledge is all important, but it is not where actual power abides, it is being able to use the knowledge. For a player to practice the willpower, the patience and the knowledge within his actions, each and every time. It is not fun, it is not easy, and however it is paramount to winning the majority of your wagers. That is where learning and practicing how to implement that knowledge will improve you.
Few people have what it takes to rise from bad or so-so gambling to the level 'Advantaged Player'. And there is nothing wrong, nothing illegal with being an 'Advantaged Player.' Lots of people attempt card counting, dice control or influence, memorization of video poker strategies---only to find that it is work, hard work. Attending seminars on 'Advantaged Play' will give you insight as to the skills, but learning those skills and putting them to work for you is entirely another matter. On another hand, possibly you will find lots of the sales speech stuff and instead of doing just those things, you will do the opposite. Maybe, HUH? Learning comes in strange ways and at times we think we are not actually learning, we really just might be.
Would anyone think that just attending a seminar on playing basketball or football makes one a pro player? NO! Because you know that would take lots of years of hard work, learning, unlearning, trials and errors, spending time with the right people in the right places to have you learn-adapt and execute those vital key components to being someone that excels in something. You have to rise above and beyond the average person and that too, is rare in today's atmosphere of instant everything.
So, I am ending this short speech with the very same opening line, YOU. You are the only person that can help you, period!
