Well, my opinion from actual years of experience. 

Caesars Palace.  Lots and lots of great times. Great dealers, staff and other personnel.  Huge experience and with the casino patron is right personalities, etc.  Note:  The article with the link refers to mostly 200.00 min tables in high limit.  Not true.  $100.00/$10,000.00 is the base table and always plenty of them. 

Bellagio.  Lot and lots of great times as well. Great dealers and staff no doubt.  Not as accommodating with casino patrons as Caesars, but case by case basis might change that.  Equally a great property with huge high limit room.  I am partial to the well known restaurants a bit more than the ones at Caesars, but they are close in taste, style and pricing (if you have to pay out of pocket).

The Mirage.  A bit lower class and style than both the above, but had some great trips and games there without a doubt when it was under the MGM umbrella.  Have not been there since it was sold and a bit prior to that.  Their bac high limit was super great in most all ways. 

Gold Coast.  Another type of property compared to the above three.  Usually crowded and lots of verbal arguments and fighting about anything and everything.  Mostly $2,000/$2,500 and $5,000 max tables.  Min's depend on crowd and time of day. 

Red Rock.  Great relaxed and beautiful quiet property.  High limit was nice with 4 bac tables.  $50/$100-$10,000 max unless you have larger front money or credit account set-up.  Very accommodating and players are valuable there.

Planet Hollywood.  Had some fantastic times there.  Was great all around property for countless reasons.

Lots of comments (neg) about The Wynn, Venetian-Palazzo as well, but will reserve those. Played plenty at another 10 plus properties as well.

The above is the top 5-6 properties IMO.

Yeah, the above is 5.5 years old.  But, it was brought to my attention last night how much it has helped someone found certain realities and what an illusive repetitive nature the game of bac is. 

Think what you like, think what you have experienced, think what the stats dictate if that's what you like, think a trigger will work 90% or greater of the time, it's all good......, but THINK-THINK AND THINK!

But I must add the following today:

There are three things people have to understand: A) You can get on, you can get off; B) You get value, you do not get value;  C) You get confidence or not. And no matter what you do in life, confidence is the number one, absolutely #1. Let's say one fellow bets 20:1 shots. After 19 losses he hits the 20th one, he comes back a winner, and he's level. Another fellow's betting evens out as well. After 10 winners and 10 losses wagering his win money each time, he's level also. They have both got the same money, but he's been right 10 times. Who's going to have more confidence?

But nobody talks about confidence, the mental instabilities involved in gambling. And that's what it is all about in my opinion. It's all about how you perform under pressure, with real money, at the table, and how you perform when it all goes wrong.

And believe me, it will go wrong.

"A "range" is formed by one or more patterns delimited by "boundaries" making such pattern(s) to stop at some point of any shoe dealt."


"The beauty of baccarat is that sometimes (say not so rarely) those boundaries do not happen at all, so leaving plenty of room to extract value upon those clustered pattern(s) situations not crossing  any losing spot."


"Knowing that the 5/5+ streaks appearance is well limited per any shoe dealt (especially and foremost by utilizing specific random walks), a multilayered progressive betting scheme joined with a super selected betting will crush every casino in the world."


NOTE:  But the bottom line in actual wagering at a table of bac, is the ability to play with total consciousness, focus and enough buy-in to have a decent drawdown.  As well, if you depleted your buy-in, risk capital, you must leave and chalk it off.  Why?  Because then your emotions and frustrations will 100% set in.  The previous said is not fallacy or my opinion, it is multiple decades of experiences and facts.

ADDITIONAL NOTE:  Online testing is completely different than real table game wagering.  Online testing is either one of two results.  One, you eventually come out winning.  Two, the program is enticing you to signup and deposit real funds, etc. 
Here is another shoe.  Played the Bankers hard with positive progressions.  Caught both Fortune 7s in the 5iar bankers.  The 2nd and 5th bankers in the 5iar.

And a few of us used the Bead Plate as guidance and wagered heavy every time the 2nd and 3rd lines came up.  It was sweet.
We also had a shoe on the next night with 5 Fortune 7s.  It was sweet.  Lots of great set ups as well!

The 6 Mini streak of Bankers, had the Bankers side winning 5 out of the 6 wins by 1 point.  So most of the people playing had verbally wagered on the Players side with the explanation how the Players were coming on strong, etc.  Gotta love their reasoning.  Players 0 and Bankers win with a total of 1.  Bankers 3 card 8 and Players a 3 card 7. Bankers a Natural 9 and Players a Natural 8.  Bankers a 3 card 6 and Players a 3 card 5.  Those are the ones I remember. 
Played 3 nights this past week.  One night I had 2 shoes, first with a Players 9 Streak and 3 Ties and the next shoe had an opposite Bankers 9 Streak along with a 3 Tie as well.  Fortune 7s are circled.

And after the steak of 9 Bankers I started my F7 wagering.  Here is a quick snapshot of the 7 flop.  After this the Bankers side just inundated the game for the next 25 hands with only about 4 or so Players winning.  2 more fortune 7s also came out.

Seat 5 was mine.  Base unit of $300 or so with $25 Fortune 7s.
Lots of talk around yesterday and this morning about the 49'ers, why and how they shoulda won it.

Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda, etc., etc., yadda yadda yadda.

But they didn't.  Plain and simple. 

Just like in Baccarat boys.  Put table max on the Bankers and Players returns a Natural 9 and we get a Natural 8. 

Shoulda bet the Players, but didn't. 
Not one doubt in my mind, the whole way!

Glad I took The Chiefs and the couple of points!

Quote from: KungFuBac on February 11, 2024, 03:57:37 PMThx alrelax. Awesome pics/thx for taking the time to post. Did you take with your smart phone or other camera?

*I like to go deep sea fishing a lot and one of the most serene feelings is being out in the ocean so far one can't see land. Then watching as the sun starts setting/dropping below the horizon and distant water levels. It makes one realize we are such a tiny speck in the big scheme of things. 

Continued Success,

F-105 Thunder Chief fighter Jet

The F-105 Thunder Chief fighter jet at the entrance of the Chillicothe Municipal Airport. The aircraft has stood over the entrance along US 36 since 1985.

The old jet was originally painted red, white, and blue, but in 2008 it was taken down, restored, and painted in more traditional colors. According to news reports from that time, the F-105 doesn't have any specific association with the town or its airport; Chillicothe just wanted a plane that looked impressive.

Alrelax: Past this yesterday and I must say, it does look impressive!

Although not one of my sought out favorites of sunrises, sunsets and rainbows-thought this chair and tv out in an extremely rural roadside ditch was unique.

Last winter in Kansas City, just a totally painted sky in the early morning.

The sunrise was absolutely blinding!  But what was unique was the absolute blackout of it by extraordinary black clouds.
