I get it that there are multiples of many streams that come from a single 50/50 data stream. They come in the forms of differing characteristics. I once published a list of those characteristics around here somewhere. https://betselection.cc/wagering-intricacies/turning-points-sections-gaining-an-advantage/
I found something from the school:
Please define what these characteristics mean. It is impossible to read randomness if these concepts are not understood correctly.
Dominance of a grouping's occurrence or leanings by a percentage rate.
Define "the global effect"
Define "series" for 1 or 2 (singles & doubles)
Define "elegant pattern"
Define "grouping" (group)
It is no wonder that the discussion of randomness is thought to be worthless to many. I'll bet the basic terms are completely misunderstood and most likely impossible to relate to by many.
"This is a good narrative for most who wants to win. A good description of the background of the game. It is difficult to do it precisely as you go along especially when you are also betting. Glen has done it with much effort, and with some adjustments in retrospect, I would think.
Anyway, the analysis of each shoe into sections is one thing. Each section will appeal to different types of players. A dragon player may make a killing a n one section. A chop chop guy in another section while a random player in yet another section. Point to be made is, like Glen pointed out, do you have the patience to wait for the section that suits your personality profile? Such sections sometimes don't happen. There are a few, very few, who have the flexibility to be able to bend to the wind and don't break. Able to see each different section of games are at play and capitalize on it
Anyway, good piece. Keep the articles coming Glen."
Look at the following posts I made of real results and opportunities posted at 9 Fortunes in One Shoe, Heavy Player, Monster Bank Shoe, and the other threads I posted yesterday.
There are really plenty of great shoes in a B&M to be played. Problem is, not so much understanding all the definitions of each and every term used by various message board posters, the problem is in the interpretation of the presentments to each of us. What you see is going to be different the majority of the times than what I see.
Then the influence and the emotions set in. Those last two are huge influencing factors to each of us. No matter if you want to admit it or not. When a player sits there and bets for whatever he is betting, for whatever known or unknown reasons, and wins----almost everyone of us will be influenced. Especially when a person is player for the bigger or serious money, instead of the $10.00 or $25.00 grind to win say $100.00 and leave.
The other night myself, H-Money and another person were at a B&M casino, we were all winning and a guy shoves in near table max and wins. He tells us he played the 'Cut' as the one side could not in his opinion continue. So he was wagering for the shoe to equal out, as in--too many of one side versus the other side. Well yes at times it works. And likewise, at times it will not. But he continued and he was correct for about 5, maybe 6 wagers. Then he could not win a wager to save his life. He was up at least $25,000.00. He should have left. Although I have never seen him before, he was a player that knew the game. Because he did not ask questions, he knew he won or lost as soon as that last card was exposed without questions, etc., etc.
He had no money management in my opinion and the same thing that hurt H-Money for the past couple of years, was the same exact thing, more so than correct gussing, skill picks, rationalizing, etc., etc. You have to have money management to control yourself more than anything out there. No matter if you win or lose. But especially if you win.
I have wrote many times about my own money management method and it works. It does not pick, control or decide wagers, it strictly and only controls and guides me in winning amounts. As I view all my buy-in as risk and nothing else.
I took the time and posted several shoes from a couple of different casinos last night on the board here. They were great shoes and my money management method allowed H-Money and all of us to profit great amounts from those shoes. When we lost we still held what we adhered to in my money management method. Yes, at times you might certainly be influenced to stay and continue winning or get back certain amounts you have lost, but after years and years of playing, that fails more than it profits for yourself. Please believe that, but the highest majority will not and must repeatedly experience that very thing before belief.
So in short, once again what I and we employ when we play is the following:
Buy-in is pure risk capital.
There are no mechanical or scheduled wagers.
You control your own positive or negative wagers, you money management method does not.
With that said:
1/3rd-1/3rd-1/3rd on winning amounts once they get to a certain point. Example: Buy-in of $1,000.00. Say if you win $1,500.00 you have to split it up a first time. $500.00 to your buy-in, $500.00 to your locked up money which cannot and will not be used again for gambling. $500.00 to a reserve account/holding for re-buyin or later session, etc. Say, you win again. You hit some nice wagers. You won $2,000.00. You have to remove your original buy-in, pocket it and it goes back to your bank roll and cannot be used for the session you are in. The new $2,000.00 is divided up into another set of 1/3rds. Roughly $700.00 for you new buy-in or continuing buy-in amount. $700.00 locked up once again and another $600.00 for your reserve amount. Whatever works, and if you lose you HAVE TO STOP and END THE SESSION. If you continue to re-buyin you will lose the highest amount of times rather than recouping or earning profits. Time is your enemy. Many will disagree with this and write on message boards that they grind it away with some kind of deep deep bank roll and sweat it out and always recover what they lose. I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT AND NEVER WILL. That is fantasy internet gambling writing with their fiction bankrolls. Show pictures, chips, win loss statements, etc. It does not happen that way, day after day as so many claim.
Onward. I also developed a 1 + 4 Side Parlay Wager that, when winning is a huge boast in the wins. Do not confuse this with the high odds side wagers like the F-7 or the P-9 or the 3 Card Anyway 8/9 or the 6/6 or 7/7 ties etc. This is what I call House Win Money that helps a player really winning, continue to pounce on it, type of wager. Take say $400 or $800 of win money. Do not count on that in your buy-in or as win money. Set it aside and use it when you see something really presenting itself with huge positive triggers or whatever you label the results as. Say you are wagering $250.00 a hand or whatever the number is. Use the 1+4 Side Parlay Wager as extra but counted otherwise for your wins, not with your regular wagering amounts. So betting $250.00 as I said, but you are allocating another $100.00 of say a $400.00 of that previously set aside win money for 4 chances to parlay that very thing, 4 times. $100.00 of the 1+4 win is $200.00 then $400.00 then $800.00 then $1,600.00 if you make it the 4 times on the parlay, you than have $3,200.00. You have 4 chances to accomplish that from that same $400.00 win money. It works out a heck of alot more than taking that $400.00 and risking it all on 3 attempts. I rather have the 4 chances with $100.00 each attempt rather than 1 attempt to continue to the 3rd do or die wager. And please, as other people have commented on prior, this 1+4 Side Parley Wager is not a mandated every hand wager for us. It might take us 1/4 or 1/2 or the whole shoe to complete one or two attmepts out of our 4 tries we have set aside that win money to attempt to complete.
We did this several times the other night. No it does not always work, but it works greater than the do or die parlays work. You figure out what you are comfortable with and fine tune it all, there are so many options and ways to make money management work for you. But you have to separate risk money, win money, continued win money divided up, locked up money and reserve money. As well, you have to be able to separate the win money into non gaming funds and accounts, have the will power to walk away and know what the time limits are. Coupled with all of the emotional and financial factors you will have to deal with. Those that believe each session will produce profits or recouping opportunities are the largest losers of all. You cannot win by continued presence in a casino. You cannot hold your win money and you certainly will deplete your buy in and/or bankroll if you believe you can control or produce wins every session.
You have to have a bank roll and you have to use a portion of it as a buy-in. Those buy-ins have to be put back in your bankroll each session or when you win. You can not keep adding to a bank roll and expect to always build your bank roll larger and larger and play larger and larger. Sorry, great on the computer and paper, but does not and will not work in reality that way.
Something that H-Money finally learned. If you cannot win with XYZ you can not and will not win with ABC. The values of ABC being the same or greater than your original XYZ wagers and time playing. There are great opportunities in Bac, but you have to be clear as to how to handle them and rationalize them out. All the stats and all the models and all the results of any kind of testing will not translate itself into the session you are playing at a casino. However, at times a few might for a short period of hands and then the psych kicks in as to you finally figured it all out and then you lose whatever it was you just won. It is a mean and viscous cycle that most will not and do ot understand. If it could devise a mechanical schedule to win al the time or well over 50% of the time, the game would be removed quicker than you ever thought.
