Absolutely spot on, no matter which way you think or desire.
I know in that shoe I posted last night of 23 or so players against he 2 Bankers out there in the very beginning of the shoe, winning large money compared to a relatively small buy in, that if I continued playing, most of it--if not all of it would have gone back to the casino. Why would someone wager tens of thousands of dollars against what was happening, versus the same amount of those very same wagers with what was happening? Well, IMO, insight, knowledge, experience, desires, expectations, frame of mind, beliefs, false positives overruling and many other things.
People would come on here and say, wait a second Alrelax, the only way it would have gone back to the casino is if you were foolish, did not apply money management and got unlucky. Nope, wrong. Within one or two shoes it would have went back or the highest majority of the win would have anyway.
Sorry, I have been gambling too long. It was a great win with hundreds of times greater than the buy in. Leave, be gone a few days, reset and back to my same LEVEL and PLATEAU, I normally wager at in this area and types of casinos I play at.
THe other people playing, win and win and then they fall because they attempt everything AsymB just outlined. Hocus Pokus or whatever you want to label it, the numbers and statistics will not consistently hold up at the bac table, day in and day out, grind or pounce on it. You cannot win and win and win and continue any type of win on a solid consistent basis. No matter is that is one unit or 100 units each game/shoe.
If you merge numerous factors of my psych detailed explanations along with numerous factors of what AsymB talks about, you will start to get a clearer picture of how to prevail at bac with insight and understanding, IMO. There are other members that do contribute and know plenty as well, I am just highlighting what I just read with what I just did as well last night.
I hope this makes sense, to me it does but then again maybe I am just waving that magical wand that Mickey Mouse loaned me from Disney World and I am screaming the words hocus pokus? Maybe, huh? I do not know.
