    Dabbled in baccarat and other casino games for YEARS...was never able to win consistently enough to play big, until joining BTC. Was able to "go pro" in late 2019....now playing in Tampa and Biloxi (mostly Tampa - occasionally Vegas) using an FTS M.O. most often. HR averages about 56%. No longer doing on-line play since I prefer to be paid in cash immediately at the end of my visit. Loving my new post-retirement career!

  1. MiClus83 - True. And I will do that if necessary, to play. I'm not exactly a "happy camper" in that situation tho......extra commissions on losing bank bets can add up quickly. If I'm forced to play that way too much, I'll just use the money I WAS going to leave as a tip, and pay those extra commissions with it! Touche' !!
  2. Great info being shared on this thread! Thank you all! In the process of reading about others' experiences, I realized that my own post only described my past 10 or 11 months in baccarat. Going back years ago, my story pretty much sounds like everyone else's. Read a system, try a system. It works at first, then crashes. Rinse and repeat dozens of times. I lost count over the course of 30 years! Joined BTC in 2017. Read, read, read, study study study.....probably too much. Went on a BTC Vegas crawl , not knowing enough to play my own game...so I tried to follow everybody else. Guess
  3. I look for trends and patterns that have already occurred at least once in the shoe, especially on the strong side. Trends Example: If B is strong and a B 4iar happened earlier, and 3 Biars happen now, I'll bet that 3 will go to a 4. If it goes to a 5, that's a a run and I won't jump off it until it stops. Same with P if P is strong. Same with chops, especially if chops seem to happening more than runs. Patterns Example: If B is strong and I see BBPBBP, I've found it more likely than not, the next 2 decisions will be B's. Same in reverse if P is strong. Same bets are laid if I see
  4. Bacoperator - My story is a similar one -- I'll be posting it soon. In a nutshell I got good enough at this to "go pro" in October. Then enjoyed almost 6 months of paradise until Covid 19 came around and ruined things for nearly everybody. But I'll be back when things open back up. Thanks, BTC gang! This club is FOR REAL!!
  5. I can also vouch for FTS working on Roulette. However, you have all that extra house edge to overcome....over 5% on a double 0 wheel. Even a single 0 wheel forces you to buck an over 2.5% edge against you. I only tried FTS on a single zero wheel. Did really well, but realized right away how much better I could do with the much smaller house edge baccarat has. I went to baccarat and never looked back. It's now the only game I play. Welcome back. by the way! I've been away myself for 2 years.....feels good to be home again among my BTC friends!
  6. Wow. Looks like only 1 person "threw their name into the hat" in a year! I will.....I'm in Palm Coast, FL, and usually play 3 times a month in Tampa, and once a month on a 3 day stay at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, MS. I would have spoke up sooner but I just now re-joined BTC after a 2 year break. I'd love to see a player/member directory here.
  7. Hello, Elegant 1 ! I'm also a returning member (took a 2 year break) Doing VERY well now using all that I learned here. One of the first things I learned (from Avion) was that I had no chance of wining more than I lost if I tried to bet every hand. So I'm wondering -- I play at the Beau in Biloxi, also. When they opened a table "just for you", how did you get around having to bet every hand? Especially when the Beau will only give you 5 free hands per shoe maximum? Maybe you're one of the very few who can bet every hand and still come out ahead. I never could! Other than receivi
  8. Put me down as a flat bettor....Always, unless a major run or chop develops, then I'll up as I win. But that's the only time. If I want more money, I'll just up my base bet. Works for me!
  9. Oh brother! That's all I needed to read to know where this guy's coming from. I'm not wasting any more of MY time.....
  10. I think most of us would rather not brag about our winnings too much...I win more than I lose, and for long term success, that's all it takes. I too, will not reveal winning strategy on the Public Forum. I pay for my BTC education, and it continues to pay me back. Anyone who wants to learn from the pros needs to do the same. I signed up 4 or 5 months ago playing greens. Now I'm a black chip man. That should tell you something......if you want to know how I do it, and how everyone else does it, become a Premium Forum member. Join the elite 1% !!
  11. I haven't been on this forum long enough to count, but I'd rather be able to scan the posts according to their subjects rather than their authors. (You can already see who has written the posts as you scan now) Just my opinion....
  12. Hello group! Thanks to BTC I'm now doing much better beating, or at least surviving "bad shoes". In November I'll be on a cruise. (RCI's Oasis of the Seas 11/12 - 11/19) There will probably be a crap table but no Baccarat. So back to my original post: If you can't play Baccarat, but craps is available, would some of the BTC strategies work in a crap game? (betting Pass instead of banker, and don't pass instead of player) The odds aren't quite as good, but are similar. Has anyone done this, and were you successful? (More of MY insight on this is in my original post at the start
  13. Sounds Great! How many nights should I book? How long is everybody staying? Definitely want to do this!!
  14. I'm a Private Forum member, but felt compelled to share this in public. Got a tip from a fellow member that a particular casino seems to be biased in the player's favor when using TBL bet selection. So I went there and sure enough, it was still going on, to the point where I was able to average 4 units of profit per shoe the whole day I was there! If you're still on the fence about joining the Private Forum, Join! Today! Can't afford the $50 to try this out? Then seriously, you shouldn't be anywhere near a casino....especially without the private forum's help. BTW: No one asked me
  15. And those great players tend to share QUITE a bit more in the Private forum. (I know! I used to be a "Public Forum Only" guy too!)
