Is charting really necessary in Baccarat?  I know that many people rely only from the tote board,  Is the tote board enough to know where the shoe is going.  I'm always charting in my play to guide me in my decision to bet or not to bet.

Comments are welcome.

I record my play to

1) Ensure my betting amount is correct (although its 90% flat betting)

2) To have a record of the shoe data as it finishes

3) To record my playing statistics (% win/loss etc)

I make my decisions mentally from the tote board

In addition to Pando's reasons, I'll add the following reasons for charting:

To remind myself I'm playing for profit, not playing for fun.

To later add the information into the StatsForProfits system.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.  Figure out a way to win at baccarat that fits your lifestyle, you don't have to eat fish anymore!

I chart for many reasons.

1. To have a record of the shoe to enter the abbreviated shoe data in an ongoing excel sheet with all my other shoes, including unit results.

2. To keep track of unit wins/losses.

3. Categorize the shoe as easy or difficult for possible replay later.

4. To upload the shoe to stats for profits and record shoe number for recall later.

5. For some shoes I will make a voice recording of hand by hand results on my smart phone recorder to practice at a future date and share with fellow players.

6. I just started doing this. I'm using the find feature on excel to see which sequences are more popular than others.

For instance, I found from my data that a 221 (BBPPB) happens 70% of the time as opposed to a 222 (BBPPBB) which happens only 30% of the time. So when I see a 221, I bet opposite or wait. That play has a 70% hit rate. That is important information on a common sequence.

Guys, please hold off on using the 221 trigger to play an opposite. One of our fellow players brought something to my attention that I hadn't realized when using the "find" feature in the excel program. I will let you know my findings in a few days. Sorry for the confusion. I will share what we find.

Thanks

OK guys, here is my data

I looked through 70 shoes (I agree not statistically many) and found the following;

221 occurred 51 (54%) times in those shoes, 222 occurred 43 (46%) times in those same shoes

Where there was 2221, I counted as both

I guess the jury is still out

Respectfully and with great admiration for the work each person does, the viewpoint of a trigger percentage would be accordingly to the type of shoe.  Sometimes more, and sometimes less.  

Looking at the overall stats of numerous shoes and the current stats of the present shoe.

As Pando said his sample size of 70 shoes is not really enough to say and also they are from a specific casino where he plays.

 

 

From what I've been noticing in my casino is, if the shoe is definitely an OTB4L shoe, then go with 222, if it's more of an S40 or non-OTB4L shoe, then go with 2211. If it's still early in the shoe and too early to tell, then look at your SAP count to see what's running higher 1s or 2s. Sometimes if it's early in the shoe though 1s and 2s are almost equal and too early to tell. If that's the case, just "wait it out" or bet tie only with a very small bet.
