Looks like I came back just in time to say "adios" to Gizmo!
I been away. Checked in from time to time but just got back home after a long cruse on my sailboat that started last June. Left it in Florida.
But I been thinking about Bacc. Played today for first time in months. But I was thinking about this site and the main problem, IMO, is lack of focus and lack of sharing. I'll take the last one first since it is a good segue in response.
This whole idea that people have winning knowledge that they won't share . . . . Why bother even mentioning it? Ego? Vanity? Gizmo, you're going to share it with your friends or relatives if you have any. That's normal enough. Maybe you just secretly want to sell it and are fishing for bites. Can't blame people for wondering about your motivation. What was your objective for being here for 12 years? So god bless - keep winning and we'll see you around
So this segues to my first point about focus. Everyone knows there is no mechanical, rule based betting and placement method that gives an acceptable win rate to make it worthwhile to play. There is only methods or perspectives. All which require some kind of MM, discipline, guessing whatever you want to call it.
Lots of people have good ideas, approaches to the game. Maybe those who do could have a separate thread and include anyone who wants to discourse about that particular approach. You could even set up members only and do gotomeeting practice sessions.
The idea that everyone is afraid to share kind of sucks.
