Guest Posted October 25, 2012 Report Share Posted October 25, 2012 Hi Everyone,I hope you are winning!!As I continue to conduct many NOR and Pro baccarat seminars, a single concern comes up. It sounds like this:"I am doing fine. playing the right strategy. Suddenly, I find myself on the wrong side. I read the OR count, it says chop (or streak etc) . I play what it says, but the game kills me. What is happening?" I have learned that there is some confusion over how to read the OR count correctly. And, rightfully so. The OR count can be your biggest friend if read properly. Or the the very thing that causes you to lose that six unit advantage you had just three or four hands ago. Or, you are doing great. But all of a sudden you find yourself betting on the exact wrong place. You are betting with the losing side, not the winning side. Well, I think I have an answer. It involves a different look at how to use the OR count. So let's look at what the OR count is for.First - the OR count is designed to tell if the shoe is a chop - (positive OR count) - a streak - (negative OR count) or a neutral -(staying in between positive and negative OR count) If you know this, you can tell what strategy to play. Now, what has been left out of the equation is this: What exactly is the definition of a plus, minus, or neutral OR count. Is it a + or - in real time? Or can if fluxuate within the bounds of a + or - area. That is, can I have a negative OR count even if the numbers indicate a +? The answer is YES. Why the confusion? Because of such phenomena as this. You can have a negative OR count and still show plus numbers. (HUH?) -- yea.. or -- you can be showing negative numbers and yet be in a neutral shoe....??? Or still show negative numbers and yet be in a chop. How does this happen??? Simple. Here is an example from a shoe I recently played. The shoe was a solid streak and took me down to a -5 OR count. Then, I lost 2 in a row. I applied mode 2. Then I assessed what was going on. The OR count was -5, then -4, then -3, then -3, then -4 etc. Do you see what is happening? The numbers are in the minus category, but the OR count is showing a neutral show. The shoe had taken me down to a negative count because it was a streak show. But, after I lost 2 bets and applied mode 2, it hovered in that -4,-5,-4,-3 area for a while. Just because the numbers were negative did not mean I was in a streak shoe anymore. I was now in a neutral shoe. By the way, this happened in a training seminar. It was great for the attendees to see this. They began to re-think how to approach the OR count. I ended up winning the shoe by 17 units. In a similar situation. I had a +6 OR count. Great chop count. But, after losing 2 bets and applying mode 2, it did this: +5,+4,+3,+2,+3,+2,,, so what is the direction of this shoe??? It is going down. It is a negative show showing positive numbers. So,even though it had positive numbers, I played a streak (negative) shoe. It was the direction of the shoe that dictated what to play. This tells us to re-visit the concept of the OR count. I am teaching my clients that the OR count has two determining variables. One is the positive - negative - neutral numbers in real time. That is -- you can visibly see a +2,+3, +4 -- or a -3,-4,-5 etc. But the other variable -- and just as important -- is the DIRECTION of the OR count. If you are in a + OR count, but the direction is going negative, guess what is happening???????? yep-- a streak shoe. Or if it is going back and forth on a +4,+5,+4,+3--- now you are neutral. And this is the very thing that has confused all of us. We are going along fine. We have a chop game or a streak game, then, suddenly, something changes. We read the OR count-- it says +, so I bet system 40, and lose 4 in a row. Yep - guys,, I've been there too. In other words, it is an OR count - within an OR count. It is the direction that becomes the stable datum, not the actual real time number. This is the solution. Pay attention to the direction, not just the real time numbers of the OR count. If you see it changing, change with it. You do not need to lose a few bets if you see it coming. Or, once you apply a mode (because you lost either 2 or 3 in a row) assess. Check the direction of the OR count. Not just the plus's and minus's. It may be an OR count within an OR count. I think this alone will help many of us better predict the events and win more shoes. I know this will help. I will be posting more tips over the next few weeks. I have more specifics on how to apply the modes that should help all of us win more. -- got a questionWe are exploring the idea of doing a serious hard cor NOR / Pro Baccarat seminar... a boot camp.. in Vegas. How many would attend if we had one in Dec? See you at the winners table!Steve Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
