    One thing I should mention (a forum member here brought this to my attention). Do you know what the most common decision is in all of baccarat? A single Player. At first this did not make sense to me so I ran my own simulation and this is indeed correct.

    A single Player outnumbers all other decisions. So if you have a chop with the last decision being Player, you have to go with Banker, you really have no other sensible option.

    Thank you so much for quoting me. My current job at a Health-food store provides little opportunities for quotes. I do get to say, "I have no idea, let me get Charles" quite often...

    Just playing the bet selection straight up most of the time will get you killed.... But tracking it as two bet selections or possibly three and looking for it to be hitting would be a better option. Finding an alternate bet selection to track with it could make you more accurate in your bet selections. Winning every hand obviously not. Winning a larger amount more than possible..... Tracking shoes together looking for it to hit the average...... not bad.....

    When you say, "bet selection" it's confusing me...

    I'm quite adept at card counting in 21. In 21 one bets up when they have an edge based on the probabilities of the remaining cards in the deck generating a skew in the probabilities of winning or losing.

    When YOU bet UP, what is the formula you are using to determine that on your next hand you'll have a better chance of winning that hand???

    betting against or with streaks can't help you unless you have the secret sauce like me.
    i will consider telling you my system if you ask very nicely however i risk the game being shutdown if word gets out

    I think you are right. I seem to do better when I do not have a rigid bet selection. I will look at a shoe in progress and see mainly twos and longer with hardly any chops and think how well 'follow the last' would have done with any sort of progression. Maybe being flexible and looking at actually what is working right now is best.

    you have to understand every time you place 10 wagers on a bac table you are losing money every 10.
    now you can ask me nicely and i can give you the secret sauce or you can ask me rudely and i will refuse
    which is it fatty head hochos?

    You are used to having only one side of the bet available in blackjack, you can only bet on the player side.

    As far as betting UP, you just need to try to make your losing bets are smaller than your winning bets with a progression of your choice, combined with a strategy to avoid long losing streaks. Deep bankroll also helps.

    all the bankrolls in the universe can't protect you from a - minus #

    Well, betting for a single player. When you see a chop, and the last decision was Player, remind yourself that a single Player is the most common decision in baccarat. Why would you bet for a two? P B P

    Understanding the flow of the game is the secret sauce that will make you a winner.

    we will win together but only if you believe we can.
    and only if you have my winning system, without my wining system u will lose your shirt you will cringe when you see banker 8 or 9 or player 8 or 9
    there is no way around it. my system pummels any other system, my system will need 10 bankrolls on person at all times and most you dig into bankroll level 4. with that said with only needing a level 4 bankroll in reality to recoup your past loses by the time you need bank level number 8
    you would have cloned bankroll 10 times over!!!
