All of the above interfaces with the baccarat player, realize it—acknowledge it—ignore it—whatever, it is your choice.
Like in most other thinking or labor dependent type of processes where there is a rationalizing/deduction process for what to do or what should be done, all 3 of the areas identified in the title, Lack Of—Visualization—Tangible/Intangible will usually come into play.
Lack Of: Just because something is lacking, does not mean, it does not exist. Does not mean, it will not come around. Does not mean, it is going to make a huge showing/appearance. Does not mean, it cannot come appear relatively easy.
‘Lack Of’ is by far and large the single most ruining factor of the game of baccarat for countless players. Don’t kid yourself, the very opposite, ‘An Abundance of’ will also be a ruining factor but in my opinion—not nearly as much as the ‘lack of’ infliction. Players just don’t visualize the streaks, runs, large clusters and related winning events that formed sections within the shoe. The players are basically negative and leery because of their own or their friends losing experiences. So, their psych convinces them that, because they don’t see it up on the board—it is not coming. Then when it does, they still will not believe it or even recognize it, the typical and proverbial ‘double whammy’. Boom! They got smacked on the side of their heads.
Here is a non-baccarat analogy of ‘Lack Of’. Say you are mowing your lawn and it is thick. You are happily walking behind your mower, usually never a problem. However, all of a sudden—‘Bang-Clack-Clack-Cling’, etc. Huge noises and all of a sudden your mower cuts out. You tip the mower to one side and you see some large metal debris pieces of ‘whatever’. You could have walked the yard real quick and looked for such objects but, you reason with yourself and justify your laziness by saying, ‘that never happened before’. Kind of like when you play a baccarat shoe and it was so choppy everyone was losing money by wagering for the repeats that never came. Then once you started wagering the chop it went to a 14 or 16 run/streak Banker or Player and you missed it all. You missed it for the same reason, you failed to see it or even believe it could be there and come forward.
Visualization: The trickiest and the most difficult by far, is the fact that there is the ‘visualization’ factor at the game of baccarat. While other card games within the casino might be solely based on numbers and some other technical thought process, baccarat has numerous visual influencing events continuing though out the shoe that effect the highest majority of all players.
____ ____ C K
____ ____ ____ ____ ____ K
What happens if you put the letters SU/FU/CO/DI, etc., in the first 2 spots of the first work where the ‘CK’ are already inserted? People visualize but still can be so confusing or leaning towards the non-appropriate and the farthest thing from the truth or what will actually happen, etc.
As in baccarat and the score board, the score board, etc., it is all resting with the player and his interpretation of what he sees. Many people will look at the above and immediately say ‘Suck or F*ck’. But the real phase that should appear there would be ‘Back to Work’.
Negative. Wise. Derogatory. Like, a ‘WOW’ effect was sought, etc.
Enticing. Bold statement. While it could have been just that, very possibly it could have been the complete opposite with a subtle and very non-head turning phrase.
Same as when a streak of either B or P is about to happen, not really any different, IMO.
B---P--B--- -B---P--- -P--- ---- -- - P--B--- -B
B---P--B-- --- ---- -- -P--- ---- ---- --- -- ---B
When you get to the above point, just about all the players would be wagering heavy for the ‘cut’ and getting deeper into the shoe with negative progression after negative progression after negative progression from the 2nd Banker on. Unlike the old-school bac players that would be counting on the streak/run with their reasoning being, the 4th Banker with no previous runs past 3 repeats.
B--P---B--- -B---P--- --- -P- ---P---B--- -B
B--P---B--- ---- --- ---- - - -P--- ---- ---- ---B
B B B B B B B B T B
The score board has done the very same thing to baccarat! No difference. That is why it is there. It is a complicated thing, you just can’t say I will wager this or that for the obvious reasons. Then again, on the other hand, you will only hurt yourself when you say, ‘I will wager this way because the other way is the way the casino is counting on the money wagering’. If you focus on the board it will play games with you. It will prove to be rationale and then irrational, then predictable and then it will be the total opposite—so clear you will actually blame yourself for not following it.
Tangible/Intangible: Intangible items effecting your play; Illusions, Perceptions, Influences and Frame-of-Mind. Tangible items effecting your play; Diminishing Probability, Regression to the Means, Sections, Turning Points, Positive Progressions, Negative Progressions, Plateaus, 1 + 4 Side Wagers, Situation Awareness and Money Management Systems.
There are plenty of them. They all in one way or another effect your decision making ability while wagering. If you don’t think so, you better take a second look into them all. The game of baccarat is much more than merely looking at the score board and figuring ‘such and such’ will happen because of ‘so and so’, etc. And that is how the intangibles will come up and haunt you forcing the majority of the players into ‘forced rapid wagering’ to recover their funds lost or a clouded and unfocused state of mind causing the player not to make the easiest and most rational decisions.
As much as some people write about the game of baccarat, is so easily beatable by merely figuring out what is due to come up on the score board and if they fail, they have convinced themselves all they need to do is enter into a negative progression wagering attack and they will recoup all their lost funds plus one unit. In a perfect world of gambling that is slanted towards the player that, might be possible but it is wishful thinking and one or both will eat you up---the mathematics or the tangible/intangible items that are there whether you like it or not
