Thank you for a very informative and truth to earth experiences. I can not comment any more of your post. It's true that there is no system to beat the casino, especially baccarat. The only thing is DISCIPLINE. It happens to me thousand times but I still haven't learned to stop when losing. I have been on winning for a week, but last night, yes last night, I gave it all back even though I did realize I'm on the losing day. I can not just call it a day but go back to get more money. I feel (just like the other thousand times) ashamed and unintelligent. Right now, I'm down financially and mentally. I have only 800 left. Stupid me. Discipline is the only thing to survive.
Hello, GoldenDragon, and welcome to the forum.
Yours is a rather familiar refrain, and you should know that the problem is not limited to you, nor any single player. We ALL suffer discipline lapses from time to time, so don't beat yourself up too much about it.
That said, I feel compelled to offer you some serious advice:
You might want to consider quitting gambling altogether. And I say that only with your best interests at heart. You see, my friend, not everyone is cut out for this game. And those that cannot control their emotions in the heat of battle at the tables certainly, IMHO, fall into that category.
Never forget this:
Writing about discipline is the easy part. All one needs to be able to do is to spell it correctly. Words come relatively easily...
BUUTTT, to empower those words and ACTUALLY INCORPORATE their usage into one's game AT ALL TIMES...that, my friend, is the hard part.
And I've found, after all these years spent at the Baccarat tables, that the MAJORITY of players wouldn't know discipline from a hole in the wall. They are there, after all is said and done, to gamble. They're there for the rush of it all. I could write a book all about discipline, and they'd be interested only in finding some pictures to look at.
IF, my friend, that lacking, non-serious player is YOU, again, I humbly suggest that you find a more suitable hobby for yourself. More suitable and a heck-of-a-lot LESS COSTLY.
Take care, and be well.
