I fear that most of your points rely upon your long experience very few baccarat players have...
Simulated shoes are not real shoes and simulated outcomes are not real outcomes, especially if one considers red or blue dots simply as red or blue dots...
Very often quality overcomes quantity.
Belief in Something. Influenced. Visual Factors.
Here, let me spell something out. If you believe something even if not scientific, mathematical or historically discovered, proven and absolutely correct, is it wrong? What I mean is, can you have something you do that is correct and proper for yourself in your situation or circumstances? And have that work positive for you and for what purpose you created it or found it?
Reality will supersede in factual results. Always will, it must. Does not matter what you are doing, the factual results will cancel, accept or discount whatever you introduce along the way, at the end. Do we agree?
Problem is, almost all of us do not really think at the table when we are playing baccarat. We really do not. We get sucked in and we get sucked in big time. Sure, you can read this and shrug your shoulders and say, Glen you do, I do not. But hey, we both know that is wrong.
Just about all of us have two ways to play this game. One is in our heads, on paper, on the computer and everywhere else except the live brick and mortar event itself. The other, is the brick and mortar event. Lots of things happen when we get to the casino. And the sad part of it all, they happen without any of us doing anything. We are oblivious to them and we chase everything and pursue every avenue except ourselves to control, govern and take charge of ourselves in the proper way at the casino. Again, shrug your shoulders and say I have no idea what I am talking about, but I do and I do 100 percent for about 98 to 99 percent of everyone. Most of what really does happen at a casino is the person is influenced from the effects of the visual factors. The visual factors present themselves in varying ways to the different people there.
The influencing manipulates in varying stages and degrees as well. But the bottom line is, it happens, and it happens repeatedly throughout the session(s) to the people. Because the people are in a situation, they believe they belong in, are comfortable in and will prevail, their understanding of that same situation is not being addressed or understood. And that is where the problem lies and develops and preys upon the people that gamble at the game of baccarat.
The Most Dangerous Thing at Baccarat.
What is the most dangerous thing, the most powerful thing and the thing that causes wrongful beliefs, dangerous influences and life changing factors within hours? It is money. The same as it does in businesses and families. Just in those two it takes a much longer time to come to fruition.
I will never forget a guy back in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It was at Bally's Grand casino property. I remember this guy to this day vividly clear and this was back around the very early 1990's. He was in a light-colored blue blazer with dress pants and a dark yellow dress shirt. He was gambling, I did not know him. Somehow, we made eye contact. I was a few seats away at a big baccarat table, the kind with the 2 sides with 7 players to each side and the 3 dealers in the middle of the table. He kept pulling out envelope after envelope of cash from his inside pocket of his jacket when he would lose whatever he had in front of him. Not small money but not anything record breaking for a larger casino anyway. I think the envelopes had like $5,000.00 or so in each one. He is burning through them steady. A couple of hours pass, and he looks over at me and says, I can not believe how much I spent already, this is my life savings I am gambling with. A while goes by and he says almost the same thing again. His face is turning cold and hard looking. He is stiff. After another bit of time he pulls out an envelope and tells me, this is my last bit of cash, if I lose this, I am broke, financially ruined within one day. I really could not say anything at the time, I never realized how gambling effected people back then. You must realize at that time I was in the New York City adult business as well as the restaurant business in Midtown Manhattan and cash was never a problem and everyone, I gambled with was business owners that gave a new meaning to the words, liquid assets. But this guy, I will never forget. Of course, within say 30 minutes or so, he loses the buy in of his last envelope. He looks at me and I look at him. He has this blank stare on his face, real deep and dark. Real sad looking. He just sits there looking at the table and the floor, alternating between the two. I do not know how much he burned through, but I would say it was between $100,000.00 and $200,000.00 judging by the envelopes I saw him go through after he caught my attention. I will never forget that gentlemen. The conviction he had, the seriousness, the methodical buy ins, etc., etc., and so on.
