Coincidence Vs. "RRR"
Coincidence or is it Redundant & Repetitious & Reoccurring?
Yes, that is the $64 million dollar question as the old saying goes!
But it is a reality at the casino table, especially at baccarat.
'RRR', or Redundant & Repetitious & Reoccurring. Some will dismiss as sheer coincidence and others will dismiss as sheer luck. Yet, others will say, right place, right time.
Coincidence: "An occasion when two or more things happen at the same time, esp. in a way that is unexpected or unlikely, or the unlikely fact of such things happening at the same time"; And
RRR: "In reality, what is happening and what will present itself, no matter what, right then and there with an undetermined time limit placed on it or against it".
I truly believe after all my years of casino play, that it is not unlikely and unexpected for the results of typical and not so typical baccarat shoes. The unlikely and the unexpected only gets inserted by the player because he missed or ignored the opportunity when the shoe began to produce the types of results that he classified as unlikely and unexpected, etc.
Yet, maybe not. Like the counter spike and the service bell on the business counter, you know the spike where the clerk sticks all the manual checks and the silver bell for the order. Countless establishments went to the P.O.S. System of course, but still numerous establishments still have that older system. Just a matter of preference and belief is all. Does one make the food any better at a restaurant? No. Does a POS System make better service at a hotel, no. Can a POS System improve the speed and accuracy of the order, possibly? But that still depends on the people performing the tasks. Can a person playing baccarat use a system that will benefit him? Possibly, at times. And at other times, no. Something has to match that system and that player has no control over the thing that has to produce the items to match his system.
A way of doing things is fine. But that way of doing things cannot make the determination or the decision to alternate to another way, if the situation presents itself. That is where the player must use judgement based upon something, rather than the system itself.
For myself, there are expectations and then there is reality. Two different worlds, problems with the player will usually escalate when expectations are relied upon in many situations and failed to be realized. I try to merge them into one, sometimes it works and at times it will not. That is when I have to make a decision on how to proceed. For me, after so many years of gambling, I either win or I cannot. There is no in between for myself. I recognize that. I assume at times, that this is a good thing and at other times, it is not. But like I tell most everyone, if I cannot win with whatever I buy in with, no matter what amounts I fund my additional re-buy ins, I will still continue to lose. Out of 20 times, if I bought in additional, I might break even or win a bit for 2 or 3 times. The other 17 or 18 times will far outweigh the money I won those 2 or 3 times. You might be different; the point is recognizing how you play and what happens when you do play, etc.
So what is coincidence to me? Are the results physical and mechanical in nature, or were they casual?
First of all, Double Talk about exploiting something as well as the weak spots in these types of games is unfair terminology used by the authors, IMO. The highest majority of them will lead into some type of sale of gambling system, website membership or something else preying on the gullible that desire the luxurious lifestyle of the professional gambler that never losses.
With that said the flip side is, anything is possible to occasionally happen. What is occasionally? Occasionally means, not impossible. The same as it does in sports, music, television, industry, etc. After all my years of playing, reading, researching and talking with others with decades of actual hands on experience as well. I do believe in the narrowing down of possible events that could surface within a shoe of baccarat, to fit into an event. But the positioning will not and cannot be the same with any sort of regularity whatsoever. Maybe that is the key to being in the right spot at the right time? If you just realize and look at on paper, how many possibilities there are that could present themselves within any shoe of baccarat, you might understand where I am going with this.
