I am sorry guys not harping on this, but to me, I see a huge problem with members and people reading these boards. They misunderstand and take too much for granted. It really is a 2-sided street in sitting at the Bac table The two sides that I outlined in the above post.
Last night I stopped by the casino, first time since last weeks pretty healthy win. And I opened a shoe, no one playing. The dealer told me that a few people played earlier and lost, straight lost. I learned that they were counting or wagering on what I described in #1 above. All so very common. Let's record part of the shoe in columns and record so much of it and then we know what to bet, because of such and such. Sorry, same rubbish as the Roulette crowd with 5 Blacks has to switch to Red or the Hot Numbers will repeat or let us watch 35-40 spins and mark down the numbers that are cold, they have to come around, etc., etc. No darn different!
A guy sits down, changed $1,000.00. Loses pretty much the whole thing in a few hands. $300.00 wager lost, $500.00 wager lost. $200.00 wager won, parlay to $400.00 won. Wagers the $800.00 and loses. Buys in again and again. Finally gets wiped out. I asked him how he figured his wagers. He turns to me and tells me. I wait for the second one and play the opposite side. If it still sticks then I wager for the repeat. Tells me a few other things. But the bottom line is, his mind is already made up because he has figured out the game and the shoe. He is destined to lose the majority of the times. Like to admit it or not. Good Bac playing is totally the opposite.
Free up your mind, get into the neutrality zone and play that way. The shoe can and will produce anything and everything, you cannot set a schedule of wagers based upon a set protocol to adhere to more than the instant shoe you are playing. And that protocol or schedule of wagers will be different for the next shoe and the following one as well. It maybe different for the next 10 shoes or it might not be. But one thing for sure, it will not stick for shoe after shoe after shoe, day after day after day. Those that preach the earn XYZ unit per week, play 5 or 6 days a week and grind out XYZ based upon their master schedule, is pure hocus pocus to the max!
Make all the columns you desire and mark them up any way you want them. Then put your money out there for the shoe to match your wager. What happens when 15 Players come out followed by a little bit of chop-chop and then 16 Bankers come out straight? Or there is 5 Fortune 7s in the shoe and the next shoe with another 5 Fortune 7s. Then you see all that, then you say lets wager Players for streaking or Banker for streaking. Then it goes to chop-chop or 1s and 2s. Then you say, look at all those Fortune 7s, I will start wagering Fortune 7s and clean up. Then there is not a single Fortune 7 for two whole shoes. What a waste! Boy, Alrelax is a jerk off!
Well, by doing just what I outlined above, you are doing the exact same thing as what I originally described in #1. The same thing. You are following something. Successful wagering at Bac does not work that way. Read>>>DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY. You have to wager on what the shoe is presenting. Not what it is going to, or should, or did not or will most likely, or anything along those lines. Two hands down the road or two hands before means nothing. Hence 15 or 18 repeats, 20 chop-chops, 12 sections of doubles or anything else, sticking or not and as well, any combination of it all mix up together. If something happens 5 times because of one thing and 5 times because of something else, you are still not further in the know because of the way the results are produced.
