  1. Leaderships my thread here due to way2fast being involved with your board. By the way his is his close friend starboard the Vegas casinos about 500,000 and those markers are basically worthless checks, ???l. Such a valued group of friends???? Lol.
  2. Please remove my thread here as way2fast is imo one off the most obnoxious members ever, almost up there with the other one that lost about 500,000 and has about an equal amount out in outstanding markers that casinos can't cash in Vegas,lol,
  3. As an experienced long time baccarat player, IMO there is no greater knowledge one can have to be conscious of and alert to Sections/Turning Point & Plateaus. I know, deep in my heart, that without this information-most every player out there will have no conscious bearing relationship of the most ideal and pertinent times to wager in the shoe. And, if you think that there is none, you are truly doing yourself a huge injustice. Sections: Every shoe has what I label as 'Sections'. Sections are the show divided into about 3 or 4 physical horizontal sections of space. The shoe I posted attached, is divided into 3 sections, A-B & C. Unless the shoe is a phenomenon and those do happen ever 'blue-moon' such as a complete shoe of 'chop-chop/alternating B-P-B-P-B-P the entire shoe or 'doubles' the entire shoe, there will be some kind of sections. There is so much folklore, legendary tales and experienced players at the multitude of baccarat tables around the country or around the world. There are no shortages of expert opinions and definitive reasoning's at most tables. However, I revert back to an old saying of mine, "It is what it is". Personally I have lost a ton of money 'following' others and on the other hand, won a ton of money as well. The part that irks me beyond belief is when I actually do follow another player against my own thoughts, beliefs and factual knowledge of the game. That is the one that hurts. You say, "well don't follow anyone then". Not that easy, especially for a camaraderie player like myself that truly can make huge amounts that I would not have realized sitting there starring at the chip rack with my head down in my hands. So, Sections. There are numerous variable, but the way I see and define sections is the comparisons of 5-9 (sometimes more) horizontal squares of space on the card or board. I am not predicting nor am I guessing. I am merely identifying what has happened and what is happening. Huge difference. So maybe a keynote here is: You are looking to go with it or against it, meaning--what the shoe is producing. The past is not a predictor of what will happen or not happen in baccarat. As well, the future hands starting with the very next one out of the shoe, is not dependent upon anything that has happened whatsoever. Yes, that is solid. But, most experienced and long time players know that there are events that are waiting, do happen and will happen. Three things happen in a shoe as far as I am concerned. Strong, Weak and Neutral. There is also three things that happen in a shoe with the prevailing hands, total value points. Strong, Weak and Close as compared to the other side that lost. There is also what I believe three shoes possibility plenty of times. That is a period of shoes, back-to-back that will be winnable by you with clear and concise sections-turning points and bringing yourself to your highest plateaus and offering chances to reach higher ones. A player needs to take all of what I said with the three '3's and mix them up and get those ingrained within your brain as second nature. What I am attempting to get across here is comparison and realization. Not prediction, guessing, fortune telling or wishful thinking. There are only so many traits that happen in a shoe of baccarat. 'Chop-Chop, Doubles, 1's-2's & 3's, runs/streaks, ties, fortune 7's, pandas, cuts after a certain number', the list is long, etc., etc. Great money can be won on wagering for any type of event to happen in baccarat. There are reasons as to why those events happen and don't happen. Most of the time it will boil down to a form of 'regression to the mean'. It is real and it is there. There are no instruction books and the one system or method that wins today will lose an equal or greater amount tomorrow without rhyme or reason. Simply because there are no patterns and trends that will always prevail on a consistent basis, none, zero, zip, zilch and nadda. Turning Point: When you look at my attachment you will see the letters I marked 'T.P.' which are the turning points of the shoe. I correlate those to the sections as you will note. Take the first Section A. There was 4 Bankers, 4 Players, 2 Bankers, 2 Players, 2 Bankers and then 2 Players. That was Section A. Then the was 6 chop-chop, 3 Bankers and then 8 chop-chop more. The turning point was after the first chop within Section B. Then after the chop-chop there was 2 Players followed by 5 Bankers and a Tie. The turning point was after the end of the little Bankers run of 5. Then you go into Section C. There is one turning point within the section IMO. Tuning Points are vital to identify as you go along. Once you learn how to properly see it, you will realize your ability clearer to wager on the 'cut' and 'regression to the mean effects' that inevitably occur with or without your knowledge. What I just said, is you will not have shoe after shoe after shoe of 60 Bankers and 15 Players, 4 shoes in a row. You will not have shoe after shoe of 55 Players and 20 Bankers shoe after shoe after shoe. You will not have shoes with 7 streak of Bankers and Players producing 6 to 9 repeating winning hands shoe after shoe after shoe. And so on and so forth. Revisit the info I laid out about the three '3's I mentioned above. Strong-Weak-Neutral events, Strong-Weak-Close point values and 3 shoes winnable-above average consistency in presentment to you. I don't guess, I am not predicting. If you think that, that is wrong. I will give you an analogy here. Fishing. Go bait your hook and stand in a spot the fish do not frequent for whatever unknown reasons. Rather than trying to get the fish to come to you or figure out those reasons why they won't come there, switch spots to where the fish do frequent and see what happens.
  4. The Way We Think (Especially at the Baccarat Table!) “It will happen—It has to happen”. Those are two of the most frequent sayings a player will here. And at times, yes they both do and yet—at other times, never. Some might not say, ‘never’. They explain it as, ‘then you are grasping—no evidence—just wishful thinking’, etc. Large wins, then nothing. Like WOW! Complete fizzle out, then turns into a ‘demand to prove something to no one except myself that I can win again or more’. Always the same, never changes. Years and years of playing, different properties, different states and does not matter whether Asian, White or Latino, same—same, does not change. Here is another one, “Monkey See—Monkey Do”, the list can go on and on and on. Okay, let’s get going on the purpose of writing this now. I was coming into work this morning. I was exiting a gas station/c-store parking lot onto a side street. I wanted to make a quick left and go about 40 feet to a main east-west through-fare and hang a right turn. However, this guy has to come up and literally block my exit and he had to wait for the car in front of him to get a break in traffic to turn left. Of course he could not have left me room to go across and out, he had to block the way and stop smack in front of me instead of 15 or 20 feet before creeping up to the car stopped in front of him anyway. What was he thinking, what was his perception, closer to the other car waiting and he would go faster? Too much trouble to stop, let me out and then creep up to just wait anyway? There had to be a logical explanation rather than, ‘I am just a jerk and I shall block the drive so this guy cannot get out and has to wait because I have to wait’? Maybe, but I do doubt it. I think it had to do more with perception, initial thought, etc., than the latter. One more, ‘My Cousin Vinny’, yes the movie, I love it. Anyway, remember towards the beginning when Vinny was in court at the arraignment of the two kids and he did not understand the procedure for saying Guilty or Not Guilty? Well, here is what happened: “Judge Chamberlain Haller: Mr. Gambini, the next words out of your mouth better be "guilty" or "not guilty." I don't want to hear commentary, argument, or opinion. I don't want to hear any facts or evidence. If I hear anything other than "guilty" or "not guilty", you'll be in contempt. I don't even want to hear you clear your throat to speak. Now, how do your clients plead? Vinny Gambini: [intimidated, but the words go right past him] I think I get the point. Judge Chamberlain Haller: No, I don't think you do. Now you're officially in contempt of court! Would you like to say something else and go for two counts of contempt of court? Vinny Gambini: Not guilty? Judge Chamberlain Haller: Thank you. Not guilty plea has been entered for the record. Probable cause hearing will begin tomorrow at noon. Bail for both defendants will be set at $200,000. Oh and bailiff, take Mr. Gambini into custody with them... and set his bail at $200 for one count of contempt of court.” Okay, Vinny had a different perception of what me and possibly you heard the judge say. That is exactly what I am referring to, each one of our thought process, interpretations and perceptions might not be the same. Well, the same thing happens at the baccarat table based upon each one of our past experiences, plateaus and other factors that are different for you, me and others. *****EXPERIENCE—PERCEPTION—THOUGHT PROCESS***** Experience, Perceptions and Thought Processes. A lot in those three words, believe me! Perception is probably the largest and the most confusing to each of us at the baccarat tables. In fact, huge in baccarat as players tend to place wagers on what they think—that they interpret will be coming up for one reason or another. How the player thinks and reacts will equal—interpretation of the information the player observed. As well, the past experiences—good or bad of that player. Past runs witnessed, quantities of runs, infrequency of runs or chop-chop/alternating lengths, 1’s-2’s and 3’s, ‘V’s, 1’s and 3’s, doubles, balanced shoes, imbalanced shoes and lots more. Lots and lots more. If the player has not experienced certain things, then he does not know what might come out and when he starts, he will certainly be in the dark as to its formation reality and what could happen. Please, do not misunderstand the aforesaid sentence for ‘prediction’ or anything of the like. With a reasonable player, with common sense and a player’s mind that is conscious of reality rather than wishful thinking and dreaming, prediction is not relied upon in the typical sense. If the player has past experience then the player has good perception as to what very well could come about. So, I am not saying old-timers that played this game for 30-40 or 50 years have a better shot at it then a fresh newbie does without deducing down how much ‘experience—perception and thought process’ is used in a skillful way rather than ‘prediction—wishful thinking and dreaming’ based upon a written advisement someone created and sold on the internet entitled, “how to win at baccarat”. I am saying experience is huge along with an open frame-of-mind, the ability to interpret your perceptions within a clear thought process and the ability to pounce-on-it or stop playing and book a win. That is why so many newbies seem to be the “real deal” and then a ¼ or ½ shoe later are fizzling out with giving back all the win money followed by an aggressive attempt to recapture the win they have no ideas whatsoever—how they won what they just lost in the first place. 3 Kinds of Perceptions will generally make-up the players thought process based upon his experience. False Perception. An erroneous perception of reality in baccarat. Just a self-inflicted vision of concept and belief by the player. The player will convince himself and thus be completely deceived by a false perception and subscription to his current wagering selections based solely on his past experiences or what others are mumbling and telling him to do. The player will always rationalize out what seems to be fantastic and successful but the false perception will soon surface and cost him lots of money. When he wins using this, it just fuels the soon to erupt fire that much greater. Temporary Perception. The player is attempting to calm his lust to win, usually after a period of ‘false perceptions’ just fizzled out and cost him a large amount of his win or buy-in capital he had. Since perception is extremely hard to actually define and harder to actually understand by most people, the ‘temporary perception’ is more of a fleeting ‘some right and almost on track’ type of result for the player which could send the player into larger wins or aggressive losses. Self-Correcting Perception. The hardest to explain but here goes. Almost elementary psych but one can very well relate ‘self-correcting perception’ to learning. How the younger school kids, say elementary school aged and how they are easier to convince and change their mind set then middle school aged and how middle school aged kids are easier to convince and change their minds than high school kids and/or adults would be. But ‘self-correcting perception’ within baccarat is the player catching himself following others especially when they are wrong in their bet placement processes. The player realizes he was drifting and not paying attention or at least he blames that as his excuse for following others and not paying attention, etc. It would also cover the player’s ability to correct himself with reverting himself back to the basics such as, remaining conscious of his plateaus, past experiences, capital, bet selection methods, duration of playing time, variances and win holding, etc., etc. In closing, if you think everything is ‘cut and dried’ with a simple bet selection/bet placement method and what you will walk away with or place as a stop-loss, it is not that simple. Although it might be for those that have a one-side one-vision playing style, but for those players that are more successful, they realize that there is no easy definitive ‘cut and dried’ protocol of wagering, stop loss and win stop amounts. The latter has absolutely found the positive and tangible effects of being conscious and employing other factors and events into their basics of wagering, cashing out and playing time.
  5. Negative Progressions and Negative Frame-of-Mind I am putting down my thoughts here based on reading the past couple of days. I truly feel players going in a casino with the attitude/belief, “I can always get whatever I lose back by negative progression” is truly harmful. Unless and only unless you are at a $10.00 min table and you are only wager the $10.00 or $20.00 and you have a reserved buy-in and you are ready, willing and 100% able with risking the sums of $5,100.00 and $10,200.00 respectively, to attempt 8 progressions to recoup your $10.00 or $20.00 lost. I say 8 attempts is what needs to be planned to prevail on a negative progression, not 6 or 7. But to me, that energy, that feeling, that risk is absurd! And it will play on almost everyone’s mind, almost. That buy-in bankroll can and should be used for other things and reserving it for positive events rather than the negativity and related effects losing has on most all players. Those that believe in it and those that do it, I think the, ‘can’t retract’, or the ‘stick to your guns’ and those types of overpowering and controlling thoughts set in. While positive progressions are a very vital part of making profit while winning, any kind of negative progression to break even or obtain a small profit is extremely dangerous. So, personally I forget about the smaller losses of $100--$250--$500, etc., and concentrate on the winning progressions which will far and beyond, make-up for the losses I had, if I win. If I lose I will also lose with the negative progression. To me, no rocket science. What am I missing? How do I win with a negative progression and cannot win with a positive progression?? My analogy to this is a vehicle repair garage with numerous employees. There is one guy, say in a group of 20 that is always inciting worker's rights and how to do everything his way, not the owner's way, etc. Fire the guy, point blank get rid of him or put him on landscaping and washing vehicles until he quits. I would take the firing route even with repercussions of penalties and taxed surcharges for firing some states have. I would just eat it and be done with him. Costs me more in others non confirmatory and loss profits, etc. I would look to make it up on positive ways without the guy, not keeping him and dealing with negativity, losses and the such. Kind of the same at gambling where you have to win so many to make up a loss and the frame of mind it gets most everyone into. Moral=Take the loss, make it up later, don't shoot for the absolute immediate to become whole for the past negatives. I say the above, not to dispel, discredit, insult or challenge of any of you in anyway. I say that from experience. From my 35 + or so years of playing, progressions only reflect the 'outcome', 'good luck', 'bad luck', 'once in a lifetime win', 'worst game ever played', whatever each of us cares to label their results, etc., and progressions pertaining to positive or negative in fact. Progressions bring you up a level of everything in wagering and gambling, it plays on your psych. And, I am saying that for the negative as well as the positive ones. Although the one place I play at in the Midwest, it has a current $10.00 to $2,000.00 tables. Most places, do have $25.00 or $50.00 min’s and the majority of the numerous high limit rooms, especially in Vegas, New Jersey, Florida, Connecticut and California do have a $100.00 minimum up to $300 min’s. The negative progression numbers would be exceeding the table limits on 6 and 7 place progressions pretty easily even with the lower table min’s. And reality is, most all players do not bring $25k or $50k to the casino to wager $50 and $200 a time. I do not care what the experts and gaming info writers recommend for 100 or 250 times your average wager for a buy-in or bank roll, sorry it is not reality. Not here to discuss what your buy-in should be. Most all players will not weather losing 30 or 50 wagers until they break even or profit 5 or 10 units, 100 to 200 wagers down the casino shoes played in a setting. That is reality. Someone wagering $250.00 would be on an $8,000.00 wager on his 6th wager with a buy-in of $15,750.00 at risk. Someone with a $400.00 wager would be at a $12,800.00 wager on his 6th wager, with a $25,200.00 buy-in at risk if he lost the 6th one. Like I said not practicable and will only happen with an occasional player that will risk huge money to break even. Might be good gossip and drama to talk about here, but in the casino it is extremely dangerous. Although everyone's financial picture is exclusive to themselves and not others, most of the experienced players will not engage in negative progressions much more than once or twice as a general non-written protocol. This is because they have seen 7, 8, 9, 10, or 12 losing hands or something called the 'non-believable' from actually happening right then and there. Happens all the time. Not every time, a player normally wins numerous times before he actually experiences what I said, probably because his losses were overridden by wins or just his plain ignorance of the losing times. When I said 'experience' it refers to time and years at the table, nothing to do with winning-losing-or even interpreting the game. I said all that to bring the reader to a point. And that point is, what negative progressions can and usually do to most players, not all, most. Frame of mind is altered or effected. And by that, I mean the following. Can you or anyone prevail with a dedicated 5 step. 6 step, 7 step Marty 'negative progression' to prevail for 1 unit or so? Absolutely. That is not the question. The question is, how many will you lose before all the wins and money risked are long gone? Some say something along the lines of, “If you lose 7 or 8 straight in a casino than what are you doing there”? All players, even the winning most players will lose 7 or 9 or 12 straight at times. And we cannot regulate when those times come along or how much we are playing with when those times set in, until it is too late. Every one of us (I sure the hell hope so anyway) are saying positive and motivating things even if we are going down. And if you were (and it happens—I seen it numerous times) going down say wagering $500 bets and then you started to lose with a negative progression before you can play it all out to the 5th or 6th spot, as you would be over the table max on the 7th and 8th hands, and they cut down to $100 or $200. You just fall deeper in and get your frame-of-mind damaged and clouded even worse. Then when you do win a couple, you are so far away from even, it is really sad. So let’s assume me and you are gambling at a casino. We are wagering $20.00 and we lose, lose again and once more-lose. Then we say let’s go negative progression to recoup that $60.00. So I place $60.00 out there. Then $120.00, then $240.00 then $480.00. Sure hope I hit by the time I got on that 4th bet. I had an additional $900.00 counting on the recovery of the $60.00 that I/We lost. And, if that did not prevail, then we have to pony up $960.00 for the next wager to get back the neg progression attempt and the original $60.00 we were hell bent on getting back. I will stop there at the 4th/5th attempt and not even go into the 6th/7th attempt possibilities. If you don’t think they are real-possible or can happen to you---think again, I promise form the bottom of my heart it happens frequently. But it is the nature of the players---when things like this happen, the player’s frame-of-mind is affected. They somehow get hell-bent on the negative progression hope and convince themselves they will prevail. Yes, they can and yes they do, but not every time. And the down side to that is the possibility those winning time with neg progression instilled into your frame-of-mind. It is not that hard to recoup a few hundred compared to a few thousand or a few thousand compared to a tens of thousands or a tens of thousands as compared to hundreds of thousands. No one here goes in to play one time and calls it quits. They play year after year and will continue to do so. So I know the effects of neg progression and their effects are much greater negativity than most anything in live gaming. A negative progression to me, is the same as a volume of combustible liquid with some escaping fumes, improperly contained inside a heated warehouse without ventilation and ignition sources sporadically present. As far as 1 win and 7 losses. I have repeatedly seen great players that usually prevail and have lifetime positive wins, lose in excess of 7 times consecutively. If you have a casino that the average player cannot lose more than 5 or 6 consecutive times, I will sell everything I have and borrow hundreds of thousands of dollars and be there tomorrow, maybe the next day. But I know that is impossible, does not exist and will never exist. But, maybe I am totally wrong here and my way of thinking???
  6. How You Lose—Why You Lose With all the beliefs and subscriptions as to easy money—'sure fire winning'—'I can beat the game'—and numerous other ones, there seems to be widespread disagreement amongst the factual raw data of gambling with games that are either fair or extremely low house advantage. Baccarat falls into that description of being a fairly low house advantage. However, it is all dependent upon how the player is attempting to wager, mostly with time and length played and actual number of hands. All the rest of the game beliefs, strategies, illusions, perceptions, influences and player frame-of-minds are subjective and individual to each player. It is rock solid, will not change, cannot change that, there is a definitive explanation of what actually happens to a player that plays too much. And that is, what will happen to a player with finite resources continuously playing will inevitably go broke against a player with infinite resources in a fair or negative-expectation game. However, this is also true in a positive-expectation game if the player with finite resources continually plays and increases his stakes when winning, but does not reduce them when losing. And you-the player have finite resources. And the casino-your opponent has infinite resources. Period, no discussion, factual. You can believe it, not believe it, incorporate it into your play or totally disregard it and be the first King Kong gambler to overtake and bankrupt any and all casinos you enter with your play and unlimited hours. I learned and I learned the hard way. It wasn’t in any one gaming jurisdiction or any one casino property, I was hard headed and I had to have my lights knocked out by several in each. But one day I actually did read, understand and became 100% conscious of the time and number of hands factor. But I did learn and moved all (well all that I know of anyway) form my subconscious to my conscious frame-of-mind when I am in the casino chair There is no magic time or number of hands whether you are winning and should stop or if you are losing and should not continue any longer. It is individualistic and ideal to each person and their situation, experience and comfort levels. The problem with the internet, is it causes ‘lazy learning’ in my opinion. Meaning, “I can just go on the internet, read something, learn it, be versed in it, use it and profit from other’s mistakes and misery”. Well, partly correct, but to really work and work in your favor the best that can—is you have to tweak, twist, turn, bend, conform and adapt—what will actually make you a winner. And that my friend, will take trial and error, blood sweat and tears and cash. Here is why I say that, because I might be able to go into a casino with $2,000.00 and play two shoes and win $15,000.00. With the same buy-in and shoes and time played, you might be able to win only $2,000.00 or perhaps lose all together. No matter the protocols and set-parameters of buy-in’s, wagering and time played; Game beliefs, Strategies, Illusions, Perceptions, Influences and player Frame-of-Minds will enter the picture and you will have different responses and reactions to the numerous things that happen within the course of the baccarat shoe being played out, than what I would, as long as we were not sitting side-by-side and agreeing on each and every hand with an exact wager, etc. So, amongst gambling analysts, casino personnel, statisticians, ‘experts’, related professor type non-casino others, and of course, the me’s and you’s—the fresh or let’s say under 10 years of playing and the been there crowd, more than 10 years of playing people. But the fact is, experience is realty and reality is made-formed and experienced every day at the casino, any casino, every casino. Realizing reality is different—depends on the events produced, however it will always repeat itself, but in a random way, when it is ready. What is a random way? At a future date past the hand you are currently experiencing. Your actual results diverge from being somewhere and doing something. The more you do that ‘something’, the more you engage—the more your results just diverge at a slower rate--faded—clouded—non meaningful, etc., even though you play the same amount of hands and shoes per session. Reason being, your subconscious tunes out the ‘norm’ and what you are comfortable with the majority of the times. So then, the actual ratio of results will eventually translate into either good or bad—lucky or unlucky—negative or positive, and so on. Here are my two examples of why people lose—oh, there are many more but this is not a novel, this is just part of a series of baccarat play I am writing about. #1) A most famous example I can give of why gamblers lose is, in a game of roulette at the Monte Carlo Casino on August 18, 1913, when the ball fell in black 26 times in a row. This was an extremely uncommon occurrence, although no more or less common than any of the other 67,108,863 sequences of 26 red or black. Gamblers lost millions of dollars betting against black, reasoning incorrectly that the streak was causing an "imbalance" in the randomness of the wheel, and that it had to be followed by a long streak of red. What could they have done different? Pounce on it. But that is just a written and published example of what I call, false illusions and playing against what is happening. #2) The mistaken belief that, if something happens more frequently than normal during a period, it will happen less frequently in the future, or that, if something happens less frequently than normal during a period, it will happen more frequently in the future. As well, and must be included is also the following. In which a gambler decides, after a consistent tendency towards one side or a certain type of event, that the same side or event is more likely out of some mystical preconception that fate has thus far allowed for consistent results of that side or event. Believing the odds to favor that side or event, the gambler sees no reason to change to the other side or possible events from happening and then ‘regression to the means’ occurs, which is a proven outcome in gambling will happen, not might happen or could happen, but will happen. I saw it the other night, super clear and like my little boy taking a bit of candy from the box in his hand and shoving it into my mouth, telling me to taste it. No choice and obvious—is what I am trying to say. A younger gentlemen working two cards for the Players side, working them-squeezing them-peeking and blowing and dinging. Flops a ‘Natural 8’ over. His facial expressions, his excitement, his tallying up the forthcoming win—all so ever present. Defined, bold, a statement as to his believes-convictions and perceptions. Then an elderly female with little fanfare and a bit of excitement, but not much. Flops a ‘Natural 9’. The sheer disappointment and quick slam of the table by the younger gentlemen, I actually felt kind of bad for him. But, what was the most interesting part to me—was the comparison on excitement and expressions which was a direct reflection of each person’s illusions, perceptions, influences and player’s frame-of-minds, regardless of the wager size from each. The female had a much larger wager by the way than the younger gentlemen did. The female player could have easily have had a total of zero or anything up to an 8 and lost the hand. She didn’t know any more or less than the younger gentlemen did as far as what was going to come out of the shoe next. But, there was distinctive influential factors as to what each had go through their decision making processes prior to the hand coming out. There was talk from each about ‘how and why’ each would prevail. And I also say, the younger gentlemen could have had the advantage of not being ‘hard core’ and set in his ways the way so many older and seasoned players certainly are. In fact, I do believe that being fresh to a game going on or fresh in the number of years played, both have certain advantages over a player that has been at the table for many shoes as well as his having many more years of experience than the other person. Point being---and I do wholeheartedly believe an important point. The harder and longer one plays, the more callous and laziness that person becomes to the important info—signs—trends and values of the sections within each shoe. Weather that is the total number of hours and shoes for the session or the number of years of experience. Same as most workers say for example on a construction site. The newer workers are seemingly alert, watching everything, everywhere, all the time. Never letting their guard down, etc. Super CAREFUL and METICULOUS (!!!!!!!!!!!) with all capital letter and exclamation points after. As the months and years roll ahead, that same person pays less attention and has noticeably less concern for his surroundings. Although he is now experienced and seasoned, he opens himself up to the immediate and surrounding hazards and obstacles he once was worried about, was always conscious about, avoided and stressed over. Eventually there came a turning point where most of those things went into his subconscious. In fact, so many become a bit lazy as well. By the proper definition of the word ‘lazy’ as in physically lacking output, etc., I am not referring to that. But what just happened with this type of worker, is he just became a bit hard-headed, egotistic and in fact—a bit overconfident. Probably not much different than the highest majority of all bac players that have ‘been there and done all that’, as the saying goes. And those very same seasoned players I am referring to, will wager 12 times against a Banker run of 15 because of the things I laid out. Then those exact same seasoned players, will win their 16th hand which is the 'cut' to the other side they were so adamantly convinced was going to happen 13 hands ago, they won far less than even because of table limits or their own bank roll. Of course they also missed the 12 streak of the other side immediately coming out next only because, "that is so rare and cannot happen". Be smart, stay conscious—stay alert—keep your brain working and fill your conscious with the illusions, perceptions, influences and correct frame-of-minds that will lead you to profitable and non-egotistic and knoweldabgle wins with the correct time to stop and retreat. Be ready to pounce on those small sections identified by their turning points when the shoe does produce welcoming opportunities to clearly ‘smack the casino’ as they say. But you are only going to be able to do that by not getting lazy, not getting over confident, not believing negative progression will make you whole, not being overly influenced with garbage, false illusions, fake and worthless perceptions and a proper frame-of-mind. If you have convinced yourself that you can win with merely wagering with or against what you have statistically calculated should and will happen, while under the believe that is all there is to this game, come back and read this in a couple of years.
