Waiting for the right time. “I choose to wait giving myself a false sense of comfort and confidence”. The reality of waiting it out.
Waiting is a two edge sword in baccarat. Yes, it can save you money, but with just as much safety as it gave you to stop, you could have cost yourself from wagering and winning on the exact thing that might have allowed yourself to win. Most all baccarat players could not tell you what they are actually looking for or waiting for, unless it was something like—‘for the players or bankers to catch up or for the players or the bankers side to streak’. Of course, no one knows precisely when any events will occur in baccarat. No one.
You can wait and wait and wait all you want. Believing that a certain pattern will happen because statistics and testing has proved it. You have convinced yourself that it will, every ‘XYZ’ in ‘XYZ’ deals of the cards. But it might not, at the live tables or I can only imagine on-line, I don’t play on-line and never ever will. But let’s stick to the real live table in the real casinos. Oh, it will eventually of course, or something close to it anyways.
Sure you will win on that one if it comes out exactly as you envision it. But you will lose on other ones you believed was it and happening or going to happen. Or perhaps started and then stopped abruptly, not completing your awaited pattern/trend/event, etc. Sorry, that is the reality and the brutal truth what the cards will produce. Something that most baccarat players do not want to face.
So we try to train ourselves to wait it out, wait out the losing or the not perfect scenarios. The highest majority of players will tell themselves, if I wait it out I will not lose and my ‘key trigger’ will come around. The only problem with that one and all that, is all the time that the perfect patterns, trends or events happened in multitude will be presented and you will still have missed them. Then in frustration you wager and your vision was clouded and your frame-of-mind will not allow yourself clear thought or anything positive because you went into tilt and anything that was in your favor or helping you, just went out the door. As in reality, there is no way to actually sit it out, without further inflicting psychological hurt to yourself, which only raises your frustration level when you miss everything that you were actually waiting for.
Many say, “Wait for the losing sequence to be gone”, or “Wait for the losing randomness to work itself out”, or “I know when to enter and when to exit based on what the shoe is doing”, or “Wait and see”, etc., etc.
It is always risk, risk is always there when you play, always. That is reality. When you convince yourself otherwise, that is when you compound and build yourself a problem that will hurt you. You told yourself one thing and were depending on it, you are not (NOT) playing what is being presented, you are playing to have the shoe present what you desire. There is a huge difference and if you cannot understand that, you are playing the wrong game.
‘Take it—place it—and be there—not beating the casino. I am only merely joining them and participating. I know that this game can and will present explainable events that will not fit into anything I am familiar with or desire. I can win by wagering with what is happening or win on what is not happening’. When you truly understand that, you are on your way to better play at baccarat.
That is why I repeatedly say, “Reset & Refresh” continually and maintain an ultra-sense of complete consciousness and clear unclouded vision. When you get into that frame-of-0mind, that one side has to catch up or one side will do such and such because of other events, you fail to realize what is actually happening. You emotions will be effected no matter if you show it or not, meaning pounding the table or being expression less and smiling as you lose. No one likes to and no one wants to lose. If you believe you will lose in order to win, you will eventually surrender your entire bank roll no matter what it is. That is the reality, no matter if you want to agree with it or not.
And the trick to winning money at baccarat is being able to do it with varying shoe presentments—not waiting for a certain something to surface and then when it does it is extremely short lived or fizzles out quickly, etc. That is the hard-core reality of baccarat. Waiting for those 15 hand banker streaks or those 20 alternating chop-chops will eat you up. You will not make money to survive the time in-between. And if you solely wait for your events to surface, you will realize a greater amount of, ‘W-W-L-L-L’ or maybe ‘W-L-L’, etc., more than ‘W-W-W-W-W-W’, because of reality. And when you wager 30 times expecting you 10 or 15 unit easy win that you know is coming, all of your losses will far outweigh all your winning you do accomplish.
Being extremely conscious, 100% ready, maintaining super wide vision while you are susceptible, viable and finally—you will not allow yourself to get sucked in by others pointing at the score board and explaining how it has never went past 4 in a row so far, etc., you might give yourself a bit of winning power and play the game the proper way. But if you truly believe you can wait it out and then see something that will happen, you are under total false belief that will hurt your immensely.
In reality you will not be able to look at a baccarat game and visually see a winning or a losing streak going on—I am referring to what is going to happen, not what already happened. Looking at it without being in the game is entirely another story mixed with, 1) Subscribing to fallacy; and 2) Does not mater one bit at all.
The reality is, almost all of us apply one or two types of things or streams we feel we can win with or what we are looking for. And that my friend is why you lose so much, so many times rather than winning at baccarat.
