Baseball great Ted Williams wrote a book "How to Hit a Major League Curve Ball" ........ so if you read the book you can hit a major league curve ball......right? .......well do you think you can hit a major league curve ball when you had to face Nolan Ryan who was throwing a 100MPH fastball which was moving up and down like a yo-yo and which you probably couldn't even see coming at you, and then looking at a 95 MPH curve ball that was coming right at your head and then breaking right over the strike zone at the last second ?
The same is true with baccarat......I don't think most players can explain in a book or computer code how they play..............for me it's mostly looking at some patterns and if I "feel" like it might work, I bet it.........and if not I don't bet.
The patterns I use are not the standard Banker / Player patterns but a derivation of them.....and sometimes they work and sometimes not.
The main goal in bac, roulette, sports betting, poker or stock/futures trading is not to "Make Money" but the main goal is bankroll preservation.......because if your bankroll or trading capital is gone, it's back to a career of " Do you want fries with that "?
As I said in a previous thread, the only way to preserve your bankroll is to limit risk as a small % of Bankroll for each bet, or each session, or each trade, so that a series of catastrophic losing bets or trades will not destroy your bankroll...................and since all these games are negative expectation games ( -EV) , you are an under dog in every bet or trade you make and you will eventually have to increase your bet size ....but in a very conservative manner ....which of course eliminates 99% of bac players as written of in other posts, describing players who have unfortunately lost huge sums of money ......and currently one player I know is currently down a little north of $ 500,000.
Gambling on casino games is similar to trading stocks or futures........the constant battle between fear and greed, battling within your own emotional makeup.................and if you can't control those two emotions.........you are doomed to failure.
