Spring is in the Air! Finally & Loving It!

  • Well, maybe---just maybe, another snow flake or two?  But they will be those that no one around here sends plows out for or the police put tow truck bans on the highways all night or anything like that kind.  The kind that coats the ground and people don't even notice for the day.  But today is going to be in the high 60's and tomorrow mid 70's.

    Coming into my business this morning, listening to some Deep Purple and Grand Funk Railroad for my 15 min drive.  Here is the sky.  Perfect, not a cloud and pretty happy looking!


    12548-0

    Talked with H-Money last night while I was cooking a pizza (not frozen, make my own dough in the mixer and the sauce from scratch and fresh produce, etc.).  He harps on the India guy winning over $50k.  He fails to bring out why he didn't hold on to it and his attempt to get more and more.  Yeah--there is a huge 'Catch 22' there.  Huge!  If you don't bet--you can't win. 

    He thinks it is easy and it is not.  And when you win you get even more hard-headed and stubborn and become the expert player you always thought you were.  Then you play and play until you lose it all and dig that hole even deeper and deeper.  It is a vicious circle and almost all bac players know nothing about it.  Sad, but true!

    Here is my quote.  "Without experiencing defeat--you cannot appreciate victory".  It applies and applies 110% to baccarat.  However, you have to have a number of years of playing experience before you can even start to realize any type of proper protocol or money management system that will work for you and one that you will rock-solid, without conditions--adhere to.  Without those things, you and everyone else will win huge amounts of money and give it all back and dig yourself a deeper hole with your losses.  The SAME EXACT way my buddy did that, I outlined for your knowledge and awareness.  Not to make fun of him, but for your knowledge.  When each of you win and give it back at the tables, think about me and my words.  Because you know it will happen.

    Well, my coffee is ready, the donuts are waiting and my new skid steer is on its way from the place we bought it from on Monday.  What can I say, I still like equipment, fire trucks and wreckers after all these years.  I guess it was my mom back in the late 60's and 70's, always kicking my brother and me out of the house.  "Go in the back yard and play guys, it's nice outside".  So we went and played in the sandbox my dad built us with our Tonka Toys, the cranes, the bulldozers, the bucket trucks and the numerous dump trucks we had.  Yeah, today the little ones do all that on the I-Pads and smart phones.  It's not the same.

  • Complete waste of time last night!  Waste of giving up a few good TV shows and snacks while relaxing on the couch! 

    Almost dead at the casino, except for that India guy playing or should I say, attempting to play.  Every friggin hand, making it miserable, removing any upbeat aura and talking with his few months experience.  Have not seen this type of play since the main floor tables in the real busy larger gaming areas.  Had to change at least $10k in his own buy-in funds with such negativity and sadness, it just reek off of him.

    Left after 30-40 min's of watching this, bought in with $700.00 and washed it back and forth several times.  Any possible good thing, he had the wonderful aura of squashing the others from wagering it and anything 'bad' he had the convincing talk to wager with it for whatever reason.  Every friggin hand a speech, reasoning and that unintelligent 'unintelligent and dumber' finger pointing at the board and his professor-like personalty of why it is going to win.  Not once or twice out of 15 hands, but almost every single hand. 

    This is the guy that H-Money text me about and won over $50k (which a dealer told me around $70k on a $5k buy-in) and lost it all the other night then spent at least another $10k chasing to get back.  Lord, I can only assume once he losses his 401K withdrawals, his car and possibly some other things he will sell, he will stop playing there. 

    After all these years of playing, I always wondered how these people keep up their devastation and continual buy-ins without realizing one fraction of what can and will happen. 

    What a waste of 3 hours drive time, $20.00 in gas and loss of 4.5 hours of TV/Couch time.

  • Have you been successful when you weren't feeling the aura?  Thinking back at previous sessions, I do believe people make more money when the table is in cahoots.  Also should the aura be down because nobody is winning?

    At times, but not highly.  Meaning, not doing what I have the capability to do.  I play-harder--better  a considerably larger by all means when there is high fiving, camaraderie and serious reasoning/thinking/feelings/whatever, the aura makes me ride anything good.  No matter if it is streaks, chop-chop, two's, 1-2-3's/3's-2 & 1s or 'V's, anything.

    I have done it by myself as well, although I try not to play solo.  But when there is a person, no matter what length of experience, color, creed, gender, whatever at the table and he does what this guy does, it is a bad aura.  I learned a long time ago, unless it is someone I know or played with many times and can take a joke, I rather not be the one that makes them lose or they blame, etc.  The aura gets nasty and spirals down hill.  Just me.  The way I am. 

    But also, H-Money was highly impressed that other night with this guy.  H-money told me at least 50 times in the past few days how that should have been him winning that money and he would have got back all his lost funds from the past several weeks.  On and on.  Then about  out of 10 times, H-Money wagers with this guy--they would lose.  Then when the guy wagers by himself, he wins--but generally only when there are others at the table and the others are wagering against him.  A phenomena that I never really understood, but happens repeatedly. 

    No he cannot change anything, I already know what the Canadian guy is going to say and sit there and play your game.  But this is the way I play and I get into the game for many UN-matematical reasons that have served me well over the past years.  I cannot sit there with 500 units and start with a table min or $25 wager and Marty until I win back my losses and make a few units and leave, type of play.  Sorry, that is not me.  I don't need the $80r $200 to buy food and pay the lights, type of play.

  •   Also should the aura be down because nobody is winning?

    IMO, most of the time--so many players are doing just what this guy did earlier in the week.  Won a boat load of cash and then had no conception of what does and will happen and went bigger and bigger and bigger with 'blood-sweat & tears' money and his gut was stabbed a dozen times as he watched his cash being surrendered to the casino.  No M.M. Systems, no resetting & refreshing, no locking up the buy-in and playing on a small portion of win money and when that dwindles down you leave, etc., etc. etc.  Just speeding down the interstate, getting a ticket, speeding again and getting pulled over 5 miles down the highway and doing that over and over 4 or 5 times within 50 miles or so.  Same exact thing. 

    How do I have this guy figured out?  Because when shoe presentments happen like, Player natural 8 and he is on it and then Banker natural 9, he slams his chips down and says WTF with his mouth wide open and eyes to match!  Not once but 3 times in10 hands and he says, I never seen that, ever.  Or, it is all 1's and 2's and he is reciting how it has to stay the same or it will cut--becuase of so and so. And he does it the whole shoe or most of it, no idea what sections and turning points are.  None.  Like the count being +20 or +22 on the Banker and it is hand 50.  How the player side will slowly catch-up, maybe not even but at least bring the banker side down to +8 or +13 or so.  Probably, the key word is probably, not absolutely.  And how the same guy would stay on the banker for the rest of the 30 hands of the shoe expecting and counting on the banker to continue to a +35 to +40 or something.   But not yet--then the shoe makes a 7-8 or 9 repeating streak and he has no comprehension.  All kinds of things like that.  Any experienced player knows, shoes change, they do not stay making patterns the whole shoe the highest majority of the times just becuase it happened and everything along with that.  And when there is someone like that at the table, that is vocal, hyped, attempts to influence other players, chastises players that wager smaller and are basically quite players and perfectly reserved---it sucks, IMO.  Same as the half drunk stock broker at blackjack telling a player to stand on a soft 17 versus the dealer's up card of 8--becuase the dealer will probably pull a second card to equal less than 17 and then pull a monkey.  While that same half drunk stock broker will split 10's against the dealers 7 or better becuase he knows in his mind there are 10's and Aces that have not come out yet. 

    IMO, it is not the way to play the game.  Losing, not feeling it, giving up your actual savings in a mad chase, etc.  All fine.  Sit there and dwell in it.  Stop the blatant, needless negativity and ruining anything others have the ability to start-come into and get in the groove with, etc., etc., and so on and so forth.  Again, IMO.

    Hahaha it felt amazing cruising with the windows down finally but looks like spring has another plan for us.  It's getting colder as the day continues and I almost went to the driving range.

    I would have to agree with you in regards to the aura of a table.  Looking back I have done my best when there is a table full of optimistic, generally happy people collectively winning.  On the other hand, it gets difficult to get those tables because of the strategies these people believe in like only betting banker, etc.

    Exactly!  And that is why so many times I will walk away from a table based upon the people and how they play.

    Members of this forum have actually lambasted myself for doing that.  I am NOT wrong, been there and done it all.

    Same as working on the highway with some of my guys.  There are some who make it miserable, nasty, dangerous and burdensome!  There are others that make an extremely difficult job go effortlessly smooth, quick and profitable!  And fun too! 

    It is called, "Emotional Intelligence" and I am writing a piece on it as we speak here.

    Very nice I look forward to reading it.  I believe the book, Rich Dad Poor Dad goes into detail about emotional intelligence.

    Monday morning on the way to my business, the after effects of a nasty storm over the weekend.  Roadways looked clear and dry, but icy as a slushie coming out of an icee machine!  A few rollovers and numerous vehicles in the ditches on my way in.  Of course I could not resist to snap a pic of State Police Officer that slid off the blacktop into the median as well.  Waiting for a wrecker no doubt.  I mad eit in all safe and sound doing my 35 - 40 mph while everyone was flying past me.  LOL!

  • This morning, the roads are pure ice.  Why people do not learn?  On the right side, that is a van with a family in it.

    Ice storm and a blizzard hitting now, since I got in a few hours ago.  AGAIN?
