Playing Baccarat & Decision Making

  • You must realize, that a designing a Scope of Result, is to contain actions, that you solely initiate and control, not the shoe. The shoe produces presentments, the average bac player is attempting to have the shoe conform to his desires, rather than, the player conforming to the shoe?s presentments. 

    The design goal is to get to the point of comfort, confidence and belief.  One that does not threaten your wagering and force you to reduce ideal or beneficial wagers that would be positive for you and move you from that idle comfort zone, to that horrible tilt.  How does the above relate to process?

    Moving to affect the person and how it does that.  I call then the 6 R?s:

    Recognition
    Realization
    Reaction
    Results
    Reductions
    Raises

    The movement requires transporting yourself from the one person MYSELF frame-of-mind, to an outsider, onlooker of sorts. 

    Do you really understand the negative effects on movement?  Too often everyone settles for the armchair quarterbacking information as our only information collected during the presentments.  But that is the underlying problems in my opinion.

    There are so many input processes that are active, and we generally limit ourselves and cut the picture of winning down.  Cut it down quite a bit in the name of safety and money management control. 

    You will not understand how to design what will help you, unless you really know what the problem is.  The negative effects, the positive effects and how each one of them will hurt you or help you, rather than the complete belief into something that will only grind you down or keep you from winning, which is a schedule of wager according to a very small win stop and loss stop agenda which is the main topic and subject these days on the websites and forums.  It is a great prelude to the many fallacies that the player will fall to eventually. 

    If XYZ is moving/presenting, then:
    If ABC is moving/presenting, then:

    Fallacy, the path to failure or non-winning in most all cases.  You must realize that you are not changing, you are adapting with foresight and realization as it happens.  And that is not easy and precisely why so many will never grasp the beauty of the game of Baccarat. 

    When you enhance something, falsely or accurately, the more controlled the present situation will be.  And when it becomes controlled, you are destined for the realization of what that shoe will present, nothing will change that.

    Reduction.  Continue?  Complete.  Enough?  Neutral.  Sufficient?

    You drown yourself in the concentration of not knowing.  Stop.  Correct yourself and learn.

    You keep on harping on this ave bac player wants to change the shoe stuff.  I disagree.  We don't have any empirical knowledge of average bac player but my guess from experience is that ave player is betting on the past to continue or, as you pointed out many times, bet the run to stop (cut) precisely because of known averages.

  • Speaking more practically.

    Say the actual shoe is:

    B
    PP
    BB
    PPP
    B
    P
    B
    P
    BBBB
    PPP

    Now what are we betting?

    Maybe B as in the past we got a PPP streak or do we try to get a longer P streak?

    Say next outcome is B then the shoe is:

    B
    PP
    BB
    PPP
    B
    P
    B
    P
    BBBB
    PPP
    B

    Now are we betting to get another B streak or to get a single B therefore wagering P?

    I already know the answer.
    The average bac player will bet B, period.

    Needless to say, next outcome (ignoring ties) will be B 50.68% of the times and P the remaning 49.32%.
    Average bac player has lost 1.06% of his money when betting B and the very few players who chose P lost 1.24% of their money.

    I mean, could exist some additional factors helping us to get a possible edge on this bet?

    as.

    You are correct in your own views.  However, I know many of the ones I do regularly play with at 3 local casinos for the past 5 years here in the Midwest.  Prior to here, I knew countless players for years in Atlantic City as well as Vegas.  Not just limited to casino friends, per se.  We associated outside of the casino as well and we talked about and discussed in depth the gaming we each practiced. 

    I do understand many players coming and exiting a casino with no discussion or association with other players outside of the casino.  And with that aspect you are correct. 

    As well, the 25 to 50 people I play with currently, or previous 100 people I knew and associated with prior to the Midwest are a drop in a bucket compared to many. 

    On the other hand I have read a tad bit about surveys and how statistical numbers come about with referencing other people and opinions,  etc.  The number are not large. 

    Am I wrong in my observations, discussions and the information I pull from those, in your eyes I might very well be and even if I am not, that information would not apply to you or others that are closed minded and focused on another way of playing.  All in my opinion and completely irrelevant to your way of play I am sure.

    To gather up together to degrade and humiliate is their way of releasing their misbeliefs of the game and obvious frustration and large losses.

    It has been said, "You believe you are the only one that wins", etc. etc., etc. and so on......................

    It has been said, " You fail to see the high rollers win all the time and in large amounts", etc., etc., etc., and so on................

    It has been said, "You live in a world of Fallacy", etc., etc., etc., and so on...............................

    Many more, how the internet forum members know this is beyond me, kind of like a police officer on the way to a call and having visions of whom is guilty and whom is innocent based upon his own visions without witnessing anything, no???  But not just visions, conclusions and believe by himself as to those conclusions reached without a bit of real evidence or eye-witnessing. But maybe I am wrong as usual?  Possible, huh? 

    Funny to me, how some of the largest and most redundant chastisers and belittling daily drama queens portraying themselves as the highly successful self admitted baccarat player, sticking to their short one-liners with next to no real input and never a picture or any other evidence that they even play the game more than once in a while or strictly for a few dollars on-line, or even proof that they are anything more than a person that possesses huge amounts of jealousy and frustration.

    They are on other forums, pouring out about detailed and specific ways to win, LOL!  ROMAFL!  Unfortunately, there is no scheduled mechanical wagering plan that can, 'BEAT THE CASINO' each and every time or even the majority of times with predetermined plays that the shoe must match in order for the person to win. 

    The fallacy of a 40 or a 50 unit bank roll, that will allow a player a consistent 3 to 5 unit win with a 5 to 8 unit stop loss will be disastrous and a certain overall financial downfall for the innocent that gets sucked in the insane forum talk.  IMO and seriously that of numerous serious players, that kind of fallacy talk is the same as an addicted crack or heroin addict claiming that the drug is good for people and calms your nerves. 

    You know, I have had emails to my published email address explaining to me how individuals have followed numerous published wagering systems such as those following the last or the next to last and catching all the streaks and all the chops, and those kinds of fallacies with stop wins and stop losses, etc.  And I read how these people lost $10,000.00, $20,000.00, $50,000.00 on those consistent wagering explanations how to beat baccarat and all that.  Yeah, it's the internet full of rubbish and full of f**cking stuff!  But these people are hurting as they believed it and lost their life savings, lost their mortgages, lost their cars, lost their families, etc., etc., all over believing such rubbish. 

    At least, I post from my heart, from my experience, and most other things so few do or can do even if they wanted to.  I post details, attempt to explain, try to post pictures when i can take them and more.  Sometimes I do not have all the answers because they are intangible or people on here want a set method or a scheduled plan of definitive wagering that will prevail the majority of the time or all the time.  Sorry, it does not exist, never did and never will.  I know I have done well gambling and i am able to take nice trips and buy my kids some great stuff, all with winnings of baccarat.  Like the trip to California and Vegas a few weeks ago, some pictures were posted as well.  That trip was well over $15,000.00 and all paid from the winnings of baccarat over the course of 2 weeks playing 4 sessions that only $2,000.00 was at risk.  So, say what you want, chastise and humiliate until your frustrations are relieved.  I am sorry many think the way they do.

    I explain in detail the numerous facets that a player has to realize his strengths and his weaknesses, he has to have a rock solid money management method, possibly use 1/3rd, 1/3rd, 1/3rds, use side parlays, have recognition and strict 100% adherence to plateaus and levels, as well as many other things that will allow a player to gain large profits once in awhile rather than attempting to break even or continually recouping losses. 

    But in so many cases-IMO, 98 + out of every 100 players will fail to adhere to anything that he can actually use to profit with at bac, especially when the wins come because of his beliefs and how he allows his subconsciousness to control himself and revert to the countless fallacies that will overwhelm him and most others playing the game of baccarat.

    I'm working hard to show up that this mechanical wagering exists.
    Nevertheless, today I played like a sh.it, forgetting to follow your principles and after being ahead for long, I quitted as loser.
    The classical proof that even playing with an advantage one can easily miss the target to aim for.

    Not ashamed to say this.

  • It happens to all of us. Every single one of us. every single one, and those that say they never do, have never ever played in a live B&M casino, period.

    Last year I posted I got up over $20,000.00 easily in a couple of sessions within one week, and in one night I gave $14,000.00 back if I remember cause I went on tilt.  I got overconfident and I chased even larger wins it happens no matter how long or how short you play.  I failed to follow the exact principles I adhered to in the winning of it as well!  Which is my definitive proof as to my money management method.   

    And that's what I try to stress and repetitively talk about. I usually quit a winner rather than a loser when I do win.

    I have won more money and been able to keep more money with my 1/3 MM Method than anything else contributing to winning additional money and keeping it once I won and I stand by that 100% ....!

    Played with 3 others last weekend.  Table was full over 12 people.  But 3 of us kind of together, not 100% but mostly together on numerous wagers.  One guy likes the second line wagers along with the third one and he believes in the cut to the opposite side after the 4th one, if it made a 4th.  He won $25,000.00 + on a $1,000.00 buy in after losing the first $900.00 he bought in with.  Then he gave it all back in the following shoe. 

    Another guy won almost $10,000.00 on a $1,500.00 buy in and he gave back $5,000.00 of the win and he walked.  I won $6,500.00 and gave back $2.400.00 of that and walked.  I had an $800.00 buy in.

    The first guy was large wagering on every second line which gave him most of the wins and he was really aggressive on the third repeat, which won numerous times but also cut numerous times.  He just stuck with the unknown and the not happening too much is eventually what got him.  He also repeatedly attempt the same thing almost all the time. 

    Point is, things change at that table and those that say they do not, are 100% wrong.  Change means, the way a player sees the game with his greed, desire and over confidence.  As well, the way a player controls himself, remembers and is able to or unable to stay 100% fully conscious of everything he knows, says, believes and subscribes to.  Extremely difficult.  IMO.

  • And here we thought you always won!  Just kiddin'.

    Quitting while ahead is always best if only for maintaining confidence but whose to say?  Maybe next time in a losing session will have the same cumulative outcome.  Quitting while ahead another gamblers fallacy because it assumes we'll be ahead more than not and that ahead amount will be greater than any losses incurred.  What to do?

    IMO and the way I do is to keep my bet spreads and unit sizes the same.  So I kind of know what my high limit is in a shoe.  Win or lose!  If I get close to win I will generally drop my bet a bit and if lose next 2 of 3 just quit.  If I happen to win I will go back to original again but anecdotally most times there is a high limit and a time to say enough.  OTH I also know what my loss limits tend to be and I know what I can recover from so I will get to a point and accept the loss and quit.  This may be similar to Al's 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 just a different mechanism.  We need mechanisms.

    But then again, I'm a grind player.  I could win 10 IAR and not make nearly what a loose gambler will make in that run.  Does it bother me?  Yup.  LMAO.

  • And here we thought you always won!  Just kiddin'. (if you are directing that to me, I have stated some losses before, including one recently of $14,000.00 within just a few shoes, straight losses, everything contrary to producing anything, others would have walked away without a doubt, on tilt, with all of my experience and wisdom and knowledge--did not mean one thing and I was classically on tilt, that is why I can detail it all out--been there, done that, many time.  If you are referring to AsymB's loss, sorry, your post was underneath my response to him.)

    Quitting while ahead is always best if only for maintaining confidence but whose to say? (That works at times and other times a player might regret it and it only adds fuel to the next session with pent up frustration as to losing a potential win, at least the way I look at it.  I do feel more fulfilled and complete, if when I start to lose a win and stop, if I at least tried to continue, past a few hands.  Things do turn around frequently and it takes more than a few hands if one is playing LOOSE as you say, meaning a non grind of a few units win or loss. Bottom line for me is, I would never realize the larger wins if I stop while winning.  That is why my 1/3rd works with many purposes fro myself and many of my friends that really do use it.)

     Maybe next time in a losing session will have the same cumulative outcome.  Quitting while ahead another gamblers fallacy because it assumes we'll be ahead more than not and that ahead amount will be greater than any losses incurred.  What to do? (I can only guess that is the true $64,000.00 question as the old saying goes.  But for myself if I was up $3,000.00 with a $750.00 to $1,500.00 buy in, my 1/3rd with strict adherence to it, will allow me to stay or walk with complete satisfied feelings.  Not that cash out and get half way out to the car and turn around and march right back feeling or that lose everything and say I am leaving and leave and then march back, grab another $1,000.00 or two from the ATM and right back for the war that would normally blow up in my face, been there and done all that with every type of buy in from $500.00 to $50,000.00 in many properties before.  I learned.  So, say I had that $3,000.00 win.  $1,000 back to my stack in front of me.  $1,000 in my left pocket, never to be touched.  $1,000 in my right pocket for reserve at my discretion. Continue playing.  If lose the $4,000 i now had in front of me, i know i would walk with the $2,000 in each pocket I put away.  No tilt, no further buy in.  Done.  If I continued to win, the next 1/3rd would be to put the $750 to $1,500 away from my original buy in and then continue playing adding another 1/3rd to my stack in front of me and another 1/3rd divided up between each pocket.  It works and it works great.  I remove all my feeling of, I could have won more or I should have stayed, etc.)

    IMO and the way I do is to keep my bet spreads and unit sizes the same.  So I kind of know what my high limit is in a shoe.  Win or lose!  If I get close to win I will generally drop my bet a bit and if lose next 2 of 3 just quit.  If I happen to win I will go back to original again but anecdotally most times there is a high limit and a time to say enough.  OTH I also know what my loss limits tend to be and I know what I can recover from so I will get to a point and accept the loss and quit.  This may be similar to Al's 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 just a different mechanism.  We need mechanisms.

    But then again, I'm a grind player.  I could win 10 IAR and not make nearly what a loose gambler will make in that run.  Does it bother me?  Yup.  LMAO.

    J

    Regarding my 1/3rd there is more on it within my other threads on the board.  I do vary the times and amounts I split up.  I might do it after numerous winning hands and I might do it after 1 or 2 hands.  Depending on the sizes of the bets and the ease or difficulty it comes or does not.  I do it more frequently when i first sit down.  I want my buy in covered and back ASAP, if I can win 3 or 4 hands pretty quick, especially with a parlay or two, I am covered and will have a pretty good session 8 out of 10 times.  But the other key factor I use, is always staying at my same plateau and levels when the win streak is over or the super strong session with that 8 or 10 or 12 IAR stops, which it always will.  That is countless peoples downfall as I tried to explain.

  • If you cannot process and hold anything else at the table you read, learn, agree with or think can help you, print out and remember the following while you are playing.  Look at it, keep it in your pocket with your cash.  Take it out and re-read it 20 or 30 times between hands while everyone is pointing to the scoreboard, fiddling around and the dealers are waiting for everyone to say go ahead.

    Moving to affect the person and how it does that.  :

    Recognition
    Realization
    Reaction
    Results
    Reductions
    Raises


    You have to Recognize
    You have Realize
    You have to React <<<<<And this is the point of make or break, Be CONSCIOUS OF IT!
    You have to have Results
    You then base your Reductions on those 4 things
    You then base your Raises on those 4 things

    PERIOD.

  • Very interesting thoughts from Al and Jim in a way or another.
    I'll print this thread for good measure.

    What happened to me is that I won too many bets deviating from my very selected betting plan and I know very well that there's no way to be right multiple times wagering many bets without having to expect multiple losses.
    The numerous Margaritas I've drunk didn't help either.

    Fortunately I wasn't mentoring anyone and probably this is the reason why I played so bad.

    I hope this lesson will help me and many other reading the forum. 

    as.

(I wrote this almost simultaneously with your response here, just posted it as you were answering what I just quoted, the same thing, no?)  (Which was: 3)  There is a time and place to fall in love with the game that will help you win, IMO.  And that is when you are on a senseless win streak, keep doing what you are doing, ride it and do not over figure it out and compare what won against your rationalized thought or knowledge.) Contained in a new thread I started with 6 things listed out.



    The numerous Margaritas I've drunk didn't help either. (Never ever ever at a table, if so, one and only one, maybe a nice glass of Grand Marnier 150 or one Cognac, that would be it.  Later is the time, I do not care if I was up $100K, would not do it at a table playing)

  • The classical proof that even playing with an advantage one can easily miss the target to aim for.

    Not ashamed to say this.

    I'm an idi.ot.

    Same thing last night, exactly, except no drinks.  F***ing idiotic play, seen it after a bit and completely ignored it all, continued and did not change. 

    I kept saying to myself, it will.  It has to.  Influences from everywhere.  Not their fault, mine, 100 percent. 

    Seriously bad play.

  • Last Night was a WOW shoe!  Past most peoples understanding, but me and my buddy saw it and saw it clearly.

    The table emptied the dealer's rack 2 times!  Physically stopping the shoe until security hustled in with a fill.

    Unbelievable! 


    I will comment and try the best to recreate what happened and why.  I am sure a few will say, that is not the way to play, but yes it was and yes it worked.  I want to say camaraderie, but this shoe it was more of motivation and followingOr not following.  It was difficult at many points, because half the players or more made it that way.

    I tried to take more pictures, but the one floor manager is cool, unfortunately since the table was taking in excess of $50,000 every few hands out of the dealer's rack and it is not a casino in a huge venue, all the top brass came in.  The floor person told me please do not take pics when they are there.  At least I got the few couple when it was about half over anyway

    Look at the 2nd, 4th and 5th lines down on the Bead Plate Section.  WOW, once strong they follow, no matter what.  This one stuck and stuck well.  If it was a Bank line and the player returned 8, the Banker had a 9 and the other way around on the Player line there.  If the Player had a 5 and the Banker had a 0, the Player would pull a 5 and the Banker would pull and Ace or a 2.  But clean and clear adherence.  That happens and that repeats.  Why fight it.  Some did and some did not, but it followed for like 30 solid wins with the four lines of the Bead Plate. 

    Something else we saw.  With the exception of the 3 naturals shown at this point, by hand 65 or so, every other natural cut to the opposite side on the Big Road.  Same with the ties, with the exception of what you see here, every other one with the exception of one more, cut to the opposite side as well.  When you can win 7 or 8 or 9 out of ten wagers with positive progressions and then tone it down, it pays and pays well. 

    Problem being with most, they do not apply any sort of plateauing or recognizing there level, just bigger and bigger and larger wagering until they lose it, then they chase and attempt to get that lost win back immediately.  And that is what happened with at least 8 out of the 15 to 18 people playing at the table.

  • More of what we did.

    The second line on the Bead Plate was 8 Bankers all the way across and when it went to a Player, it stuck for the rest of the shoe on the line presenting a Player each time.

    The third line was 1 Banker and them 3 Players, then 1 Banker followed by another 3 Players, 1 Banker followed by yet another 3 Players.

    The fourth line stuck all the ay across with only 2 Players at the very end of the shoe in the last two columns.

    1s and 2s and sometimes 3s is a stuff shoe.  Especially when it gives you just a few equal or consistent spacing in between the hands to prevail or recoup fro a loss.  To me, this would have been a bad shoe, but we only followed the Bead Plate with the certain wagers that were strong.

    There were several big players wagering table max on numerous hands, they would hit, give it all back and then win it all again.  They were completely against the Bead Plate.  If they played with the Bead Plate they would have cleaned house and walked away with huge money.  But they were doing the repeating streak thing or the constant cut thing.  Totally wrong.  No way to win. 

    Then there was the clear and concise largest betting player clearly leading the pack.  He announces the shoe will be weak and he will be wagering all chop-chop.  This is right after the side by side ties, the 3rd and 4th ties of the shoe, hand 17 and 19 it was.  So, he is table max each time, hits 5 and gives back 4.  He is up 1.  Hits 2 and give back 2.  Hits 2 and gives back 2.  Hits 5 more and gives back 3, he is then up 2 I think, a total of 3.  Hits 2 more and at that point is announces he is up $5,000.00.  Says he wants $9,000.00 and his buy in back, which i think was $1,200.00, i think he bought in and got 10 black chips and 200 in green, might have been 300.  Anyway, then he hits 2 more and then he gave back 4.  He was up like $1,000 I think cause he colored up and had an orange chip off to the side.  Then he lost like 4 and lost another couple.  He bought in again and again.  The frustration was huge and he pulled down his entire side of the table with what he did and how he handled his wagering.

    So a few of us continued to follow what was being presented, not chasing and wagering every hand.  Extremely difficult, especially when you are hitting wins, wager after wager.  Meaning, every few hands, not every single hand.  You see the wins and you want the continued wins.  But you have to restrain yourself, so few do!
