After the drama dies down in the Bac room, the next shoe was started. Well into the shoe, one of the players were winning almost every hand for the past 7 or 8 hands or so. One of the players yells out, Hey what are you betting next? The player that was winning answers back, I do not know. Going through my process of emlination. Of course he has already had several beers and his words were slurring a little bit. The other player presses him, going to wager with you, etc. The winning player looks up and says, you really want to know how I do it? And the other guy says yes! The wining player stands up and takes a deep breath. Told every one to watch himself. The guy recites, Eeny Meeny Miny Moe and points alternatly to Banker and Player as he does it. His last word of the ryhme winds up on Player. Most already had their wagers set on Banker and all laugh. One person recites out loud, the power of alcohol and starts laughing. The winning player pushes up a fairly large stack of black chips and crosses his arms. Most people are laughing.
Cards dealt, 7 for the Players side and the guy is already saying Banker lost. Banker returns that dreeded 6. Once again. The person that questioned the winning drinking guy, asked what is next. The guy once again recites his Eeny Meeny Miny Moe routine and lands on Banker this time. Of course he started it different than last time, but hey, it is what it is. So about half the table goes with the guy and the other half against him. Cards dealt once again. Player returns a Natural 8. The winning guy is working the cards. Has a 3 line card and a 1 line card. He is taking his time. Finally says, never lose, either I have an 8 or a 9. Flips over a 6 and a 3.
Okay, now most are quite. Another person gets up and says, listen dude, you can do your Eeny Meeny Miny Moe stuff and land where ever you want because you already know where the last one will land because it is only 2 options. So the winning guy says, how about if we include one of the four Tie options you pick it, the straight up Tie or the 6/6 or the 7/7 or the 6/7 Tie and we will also include the 8/9 Natural and the Panda 8 and the Fortune 7 options. The other guy says okay sounds fair. So the guys runs through his regime of the ryhme and lands on Tie. Finally the cards are dealt and the Players return a total of 2 and the Bankers returns a total of 1. Most all are on the Bankers side. Players third card is an 8 reducing them to 0. The guy that start all this, that challenged the drinking guy has the largest wager and gets the Bankers side third card. He peeks at it. Says pretty loud, I can not believe this, I either have a 9 or a ten. He flops it over and it is a 9 and reduces the Bankers side to a 0 and a Tie. The dealer is laughing and most others are as well. The drinking guy stands up and fist pumps the air and tells everyone, I told you so.
Now a few others are challanging him also. He runs through his funky ryhme once again. Lands on Players side. A few push in large stacks of chips and say, lets do this. Get it on, lets go. Cards are dealt. Players side returns a 3 and Bankers side returns a 4. Players side flops an 8 and the Bankers side wins.
Show over. Agian, only at the baccarat table. LOL!
