Users jrhelp007 Posted April 19, 2012 Users Report Share Posted April 19, 2012 I'm excited and happy from the result of my last games at Atlantic City. I decided this time to play baccarat at the Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods casinos in Connecticut. The traffic was slow. It took me about 4 hours to get there. Thank you GPS...I arrived at about 2:00 pm at Foxwoods waiting on a sit at the baccarat tables. The majority of the players are elderly people most likely arrived with the daily casino buss. The tables were $20 minimum. While waiting I remembered from watching Video that Ellis told the audience that one of the key elements to success in winning baccarat is to find the proper table, collect history on the last games Also I had time to peek into previous play on the tables by reviewing old cards left on the table. It took about 25 minutes and sit number 1 opened. I sat down. The Shoe is in progress it was dealt about 31 hands. Overall the shoe cycle is gearing toward natural. Based on my calculation using my score card the score is hoovering around + - 2. I set at the table for about 10 minutes. The floor person walks over to me and asked me if I'm planning to play? Otherwise I have to give up the sit because they had other players requesting to play at this table. I cashed $500. The score was -1.I waited a few more hands and here it came a breakout of the natural flow took place entering a choppy shoe. Perfect for the S40 approach.I started to bet. The count O/R was at +6 so I increased my bets from $20 to $100. It triggered the floor person attention, standing next to me. I didn't worry about that because I'm not cheating. They are with their wired suffered cards.The problem why the floor person was standing next to me is not because I bet a black chip. She wanted to see/follow on how am I picking up my bet. Why? Because the rest of the table started to follow me and waited for me to place a bet. I kept a low profile. My goal was to get 10 to 15 units and wait for the next shoe. But the attention toward me was too high, I was about to leave. The floor person asked me to color in. Because they were short of chips. I ended up with +18 mixed bet for a total of $1,300.00.Scared but happy from the result of the first game, I left the Casino and drove towards Mohegan Sun about a 30 minutes ride. The staff was nice. As usual I kept a low profile. The two tables next to me were crowded, unbelievable $10 minimum. I guess the economy does impact the Casinos.I set at an empty $25 dollar table asked the dealer to start the game. The dealer started to prepare the game asking the floor person a permission to extract cards from the master shuffler machine.I cashed a $1000.00 ($500 in $25's and 5 black chips $100 value each unit). I did not want to play by myself. But the dealer told me that she doesn't care if I place 1 chip on the banker and 1 chip on the player "simulating a free hand". Worse case scenario will be losing 5% commission if the Banker won. Luckily as the game about to start 3 other players joined. I was so happy. Because I wasn't sure if the Pit - Boss or the Casino allows that type of bets? I was afraid to ask. Remember I'm trying to keep a low profile. All I know that in Las Vegas you can request a few free hands without "abusing" their allowance. Although the NOR approach calls to observe then enter and play the hands according to the O/R (SAP is a plus). My approach is slightly different because for now I 'm running the S40 approach only. I'm looking to intercept my signal. A conservative play. In times it leaves big winnings on the table. But I 'm not greedy. It will change as soon as I start applying the navigation approach of using a combined 40N, F2, F3 and SAP at the table. I'm still practicing. No rush the Casinos are going no where.The current game at the table is slow. A new dealer arrived. She took her time talking to the dealer at the next table. The 2 out of the 3 players at this table are about to lose all their bankroll. All left so I left too going for a nice dinner. I end up with $331.25.
