2) Doubles or Triples;
There is nothing else, IMO. (That is referring to Banker and Player sides only in Mini or Midi Bac only, not Bad Beat Bac with some great side bets that can be extremely profitable under the right circumstances, but that is a whole other story in itself.)
Almost all lose their money playing because of their own mentality and greed. Not much else really, although they will blame it on anything and everything else.
A person cannot play to win all three. It is impossible. Say what you want, degrade, humiliate and chastise. But there is no way to capitalize with a mechanical system on all three.
Streaks continue, doubles or triples are limited continuance and chops, will alternate. Your mind, emotions and pocket are effected when you lose as well as win, losses happen and compound themselves each and every session.
The other night there was 6 of us or so. We picked and all agreed on 2 triggers within certain Sections that continually were presenting themselves. We played them, they continued, we pumped it up when those came around and we did extremely well. We played a few other things just to keep us in the game, warmed up and ready, lets say. We toned it way down on the desires, the greed and the stupid mistake of attempt to change the shoe for something we thought would happen.
Paramount, is knowing and staying fully conscious of both your Level and your individual Plateau. Again, paramount!
Kind of the same as knowing how to golf, having the equipment, playing and applying it all and getting in a get game versus knowing it all and playing stupid and falling prey to all the surrounding distractions and things we just knew we should not have engaged in--but did anyway. No different.
