Users Sputnik Posted February 24, 2017 Users Report Share Posted February 24, 2017 (edited) This is a question to some one with much experience playing baccarat. When you read about a method, do you use that particular recommendation for win targets and loss limits or do you come to your own conclusions? I assume you come to you own conclusion as the authors recommendation not might be your comfort zone playing. Now one known author and player - John Patrick - is famous for hes statment that 70% of the punters who entering a casino is at some point ahead during there play, but still 90% of the punters go home as losers. I think this is the truth and made me thinking about what it means to be ahead, if we don't know or can define what it means to be ahead then we don't know when to quit playing - be a winner! Assumption is that if i take 10 samples with 100 placed bets each flat betting, then one or two sampels might go down the hell path with no winning at all, but the other eight sampels show a profit. Maybe the average peak for all eight sampels is 2 units - the result the all eight sampels has as common peak. Then i can assume and say that when i am ahead is when i reach +2 units and should quit. That could be one way to determine a win target. Do you agree or have another opinion? Now there is one more thing i notice when i experiment testing different methods, reversals and back to back results. For example during a 100 placed bet sampel you might get +1 and then after some more placed bets -4 and then again +3 and after some more placed bets - 2 and then again a +0 result. This is pretty common and you can get several reversal or back to back results during a 100 placed bet sample using flat betting. What does that mean, well if i don't reach my goal at the first time i know that my expectation might be three more reversals or back to back results for the next 70 placed bets. This with reversal and back to back results puts the loss limit into perspective, when to stopp and when to continue or push for more or getting a next chans. My assumption is that we can define loss limit in the same way as we decide when we are ahead.
