Confidence and what it leads to. Recognizing and knowing how to transform your knowledge and experience into tangible items to put yourself on the correct path to winning the way you can when it is possible.
Taking that knowledge and experience and developing the vision, the frame-of-mind and allowing yourself to function outside of your emotional feeling in the casino. The path you can profit from if you manage your vision, frame-of-mind, and emotional feelings and thoughts while at the table. A total different thought process with all outcomes and how profitable or costly each session will be is derived from those 3 things, as compared to most other types of income and career advancement. What almost all fail to realize, just in the casino everything is accelerated, enormously ‘fast-forwarded’ which is the down-fall for almost everyone. You do not have to trap yourself within that same ‘normal and emotional’ thought process and wishful thinking of what does not work, that so many will repeatedly and consistently tell you and even attempt to show you they know it is all based of theory of numbers, math, stats or some form thereof---but just failed for that session but hold no fear—it has to prevail if you subscribe to it for the long-term. Realize your vision, your frame-of-mind and literally using your experience, plays enormous roles within your thought process.
And the down side to what I just said, and it will appear that I am contradicting myself, but what actually will work, does work, I will show you pictures of the results of it, etc., it cannot work day in and day out, shoe after shoe, on a consistent basis and that is where most will dismiss what I say. Simply, if you are not conscious of those and rely strictly on any and all twisted theories of ‘what is going to happen’ by everything from mathematical and statistical results to the attempt to merge into the Feng Shui syndrome, you will devastate yourself nearly 100% of the time. Stop trying to locate, purchase and read a text book or gambling manual, buy a DVD with a gambling system or attend some make shift ‘holy grail’ class with the numerous ways they are presented, where upon you believe you can read 7 lines or give 15 minutes of your time to learn a multi-million dollar sure thing.
You get sucked with all the mathematical numbers, all the proven statistics that will give you the edge, that proverbial 1 to 5 % whereupon you are thinking every shoe you play, all you have to do is push out wagers every so often and your running total will be 51 to 55% or so positive. And the dangerous part of it all, that you really do believe just that! You put your pen to the paper and you add up all those 1% to 5% profits, each and every time you game. You believe that it is possible and you reason it out, ‘because I never saw it that way and this guy or this group spent thousands and thousands of hard-core hours to develop this’, etc. etc., and it all makes sense, it all checks out, it is the system that works and the wagering base I was never able to find. What am I trying to say in the above paragraph?
Well, all the math and all the statistics cannot consistently win at baccarat or any other table game on a consistent basis, day in and day out, all day—every day. Even the so-called pros, the real pros, do not gamble every day, all day with the same positive winning results. You hear about the large wins, you hear about the tournaments, you hear about the hall-of-fame stuff. You do not hear about the pain and the suffering, the constant and huge losses, and once you take out all of the superstars of the gambling pros, you have everyone else left. The people that claim to be pros on the message boards, the system selling pros, the elite circle paid membership website owners and their exclusive members, etc., etc., etc., as well as the everyday playing person, claiming that he rakes in 51% to 55% or so over the long-term and lives nicely while being his own boss without a full time job and enjoys taking money every day or nearly every day from the casino. Of course they also throw in, I travel a lot and stay under the radar, just so I won’t get banned from all the casino properties I like to play at. Those players will seldom, if at any time, really reveal much anything about the way they play or how they win, why? Because whatever they say would actually be incompatible to what actually happens at the tables and they have no other story to tell except for their mathematical and statistical beliefs made into a lecture of sorts. They exploit the text-book/classroom theory of mathematical and statistical probability as well as their 'even/odd strategies' along with their 'makes more 1's and 2's than anything else dilemma, which would showcase their 1% to 5% over the long-run as being very profitable rather than what actually happens day to day. There are different twists on what I just said, but each and every one of them is actually, some shape or form of what I just said. But, what they all fail to tell you and disclose, is how they constantly lose and lose more than they win by sticking with their 'proven results' that prevailed the 1% to 5% greater from all the testing backed up by all the documented statistical proof. How do I know what I am writing here?
How do I know it will work? Have I experienced any of it at all? Am I just turning around what the vast majority of the gambling public thinks works and will not work? Am I just anti-system math result envious? Have I had profitable sessions based on the ‘other things’, that I claim are of required understanding and you must employ 100% consciousness at the table, rather than wagering for a specific event over and over with consistently and only profiting a trivial 1 to 4 percent or so the minority of the times, which normally disallows you from getting even as you track your daily/weekly sessions? Well the answer to those and other questions of the same nature, I rather visually respond with a few pictures of only the past couple of month’s play of mine.
Oh yeah, I forgot, my wins are mine and I keep them, spend them and do not increase bankrolls, wagering and status levels, plateaus and all the other false and misleading ‘brew-ha-ha’ that is perpetrated by the majority of the forum members on how to win and gamble. Of utmost priority and protocol, I also replenish the local bankroll I have when I win before leaving the table, if I had any negative downplay prior to the wins. I have not depleted my local bankroll in the past 16 years or so, without replenishing it prior to depletion, strictly from wins. All the rest are the fruits that fell from the tree or should I say, the opportunities I caught that presented themselves from the baccarat shoes? And here you go, on a local level for the past couple of months, just recently here and there:
