Bac is NOT a 50/50 game. Period.
Consult, test, run and do all your computer stats you like. In fact look up stat experts (at least they claim they are experts) like the old Xander or SoxFan or the other 4 or 5 that used to post all their one-liners and swear up and down (without a bit of proof of course) their constant and long term almost every session a winning session, etc., rederick on here until they all moved on to other Forums.
Like I said, Bac is NOT a 50/50 game. Go to a casino and watch, virtual bet and watch. Call it any way you desire. Next hand will chop from the last, next hand will follow the last, next hand will do whatever it is you think. Stand and watch, over and over. Do 20 wagers. 50/50 means that you will get 50% of them correct. SO in all essence you would have to win 10 of them and loose 10 of those. And if you do watch the next 20 wagers and got 10 of those correct, that means that you would be able to do the exact same thing once again, during the course of the next 20 hands and then again and again, continuously. Not just once in a while.
I do not care what the stats and the results are, as well, the odds. Means absolutely nothing in Bac. If you are talking about the extreme, meaning can the shoe produce 60 Banker hands in a row or will the next 10 shoes produce 55 hands or better of either Banker or Player side wins? Ridiculous, yes. Will a particular shoe do just that though? Of course it is possible, anything is possible in Bac.
Consistently wagering anything after something, especially with flat-betting will NEVER EVER pay off. Possible for a shoe or two, here and there, like I already said, anything can happen. But with consistency, NEVER will it continually happen and keep happening. And if you think you can pinpoint when that possibility will happen for those special times, once again you can not and will not have that advantage to be able to do so. The losses will grind you down, no matter what size your bank roll is.
As far as stop losses and stop wins, they will both also eat you up and either prevent you from winning or stop you from winning, either one. If you employ those, you will not have the advantage and the clarity in your thought process to turn them off or turn them on at will. It can not and will not happen.
Can the outcome be 50/50? Yes, at times. And the key point to remember, is AT TIMES. But the results are not 50/50 and the chance of winning is not 50/50 as well.
Call me an unintelligent. Call me unintelligent and ignorant. But my friend, I have played this game in B&M Casinos for decades and I do know when I am right or wrong and I also know, when I do not know something.
Go get 8 decks of cards at a dollar store, less than $10.00. Make the investment. Shuffle them up and stack them off to the side. Get a pen and paper and keep track of your buy-in and your wagers. Not hard to do and certainly at your own speed. Play it out. Play it out numerous times, not once or twice. See what the ratio of the shoes and/or sections/hands that you actually wagered came out to be. Was the result 50/50?
Stats, results from computer testing, stats from someone else's game, stats from computer coding and all the rest of them---mean absolutely nothing when you are at the table, with your cash up at risk and you are wagering on that shoe to produce something that will register either a WIN or a LOSS.
So go ahead and do just that, and let me know how every 20 hands you were wagering $100.00 a hand gave you 10 winning hands and 10 losing hands. And, if it did just that, tell me also how you doubled your wager after the first five losses and you recouped all your losses, each and every time, etc. Then tell me how every time you got to that 19th or 20th hand and it was something like 48 or 49 to 50, you tripled or ten folded your wager and every time you profited a few thousand. Because if it truly was 50/50, you would most certainly be able to do just what I wrote, each and every time.
