I would like to welcome CT70 officially to the board. He has been around a while and is active within the pro/serious gaming field. I have talked with him in the past. I appreciate his coming forward here. Thank you personally and on behalf of BetSelection Board.
And yes, without a doubt, his brief post is spot-on as the saying goes. I have written about these things/this very thing. I have noticed post 2005-ish how the game of bac changed, especially with the large removal of almost all of the 14 seat kidney shaped tables, with the 3 dealers and 2 dedicated floor people at each one. The types where the players themselves actually took the shoe and dealt the game and maintained the shoe as long as a banker hand was made. But that is by the wayside now except at a hand full of places.
As well, the internet and message boards preaching systems, methods and guaranteed returns, etc., oh yeah, and YouTube and all the characters, etc. I even hear people talk about them here in the Midwest. I posted a 22 Player streak in 2 close parts the other day versus 2 Bankers. Where it was 7 Players out of the gate, a Banker, a Player, a Banker and then followed by 12 or 13 Players. Almost no one stayed on it, they kept reciting Banker has to come out and even 2 of them recited some names off of YouTube bac systems, etc. Play for the cut, instead of pump it up and just keep pulling down the winning and lose only the last one.
But the #1 thing, is 'play for the cut', if it is streaking wager and keep wagering big for the upcoming cut to stop the streak. Also, if it is chopping wager for the upcoming repeat. Also pay no attention to 1s, 2s and 3s also known as Zig-Zags, and all the rest. just play for the cut.
