Baccarat Hall of Fame Member kachatz1 Posted August 9, 2013 Baccarat Hall of Fame Member Report Share Posted August 9, 2013 Hey all you NOR, NOR+, SAP players... This post is directed to all of us who play Baccarat, as well as our friends and families. (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE...)Plainly stated, those of you who have played Bac for years will find most of this to be a rehash of things you already know, and may want to move on to the next thread...Others among you, even those just starting out with a system ( like NOR, or whatever ) are far more likely to identify a morsel or two that can help them with their game..And most reading this will find themselves " somewhere in the middle" and choose to follow the RipleyDoctrine... Believe It, Or NotLet me say at the outset, my Mother passed on about 6 years ago. She knew of my Casino Adventures, but certainly not to the extent she understood them well, nor even inquired past the polite "really?" whenever we discussed them. And she had no idea how much money was involved....So when I titled this post " The 10 things.." , rest assured Mother had nothing to do with them...and YES, these are things she never told me.It's also likely that if you simply " google" or " Bing" or whatever you use for your Internet search engine ( or a visit to the library...ha! Remember That?) , you will find there are more than 10 things Mother never told you,either...So here goes ( in no particular order) :1) Entering into a casino is no different than going to a favorite restaurant or Walmart. There are way too many items on the menu to afford you the opportunity to consume them all in one sitting, or you will simply find out that everything WalMart stocks will not fit in your car on any single visit.As pertains to Baccarat, if you do any study at all of the game, you will quickly learn that there are some Bazillion combinations of PBT that can result from 75-80 hands consecutively dealt from a shoe of 8 decks.Accept this fact, and you will come to see that no single system can possibly beat every shoe. And never, ever forget this.2) The Casino is like your best friend, who ultimately turns out to be your worst enemy.Pretty, flashy, free drinks, good times...reminds you of a friend, right?Emptying your wallet, confining you in a windowless space for hours on end , numbing your senses with loud music and obnoxious patrons is more like jail, right?As pertains to Baccarat, it's important to understand that at all times, the game is mathematically"rigged" to take your money. It's not the Dealer's fault, and the Floor manager may , at times, remind you of your favorite next door neighbor. Just do your research, and you will find that the standard odds of playing one way for a long period of time, without variation, will leave you in the poor house.BBBBBBBBBBB or PPPPPPPPPP, if you insist on one or the other, you will lose. And the longer you play, the more you will Lose playing this way.3) Before you know it, you will lose your ability to keep score. But the Casino won't.The whole Casino experience is designed to baffle you with a mind-numbing array of ever changing lights, sounds, people and things. Just think how many different dealers, how many different floor managers, how many different bartenders, how many different cocktail waitresses, yada, yada you observe playing for a few hours...think about it, and you know it is no " accident"As pertains to Baccarat, why do you think Ellis implores you, literally begs you, and finally all but commands you to keep track of your progress, your money, the game in groupings of 20 hands? Simple, because he knows that this is the only way you can remain focused,and truly " keep score" of where you are at, compared with all the distractions taking place everywhere around you!
