    Does anyone here actually make a living here playing baccarat? I am interested in other methods of play. Post your method if you have something that actually works.

    Thanks

    Don’t be so lazy , read what is already posted various threads this forum, you can lazzarus the thread with a question. You should be aware by now that flinging the credit card at buying systems has got you nowhere, the easy sugar hit won’t be forthcoming here, you will have to do some homework on your own accord.

    Good luck cheers

    Hey Punkcity, how long did it take for you to become comfortable with betting high unit amounts, if you don't mind me asking?

    I can truthfully say I did make a living at "baccarat" for several months. I was a salaried manger of a baccarat team. An investor paid me to make sure all his money was lost in the casino and not stolen by his players. I did exactly that.

    Check all the threads from Junket King- especially how he tackles the string of losses and his money management method. He also showed you how he played using Anti- binary chart or column.
    Baccarat to me is not a one- size fits all game. You really need to plan and play accordingly to your plan. Is it easy? Nope!
    Good luck to you all! Cheers!

    so much for asking a honest question friend, but I am afraid people here are thinking you are asking for a free lunch or are lazy.
    as if knowing a method of play was the easy path to winning, which is not . 100 players could know the same system and maybe just 1 % would be successful. look at Jae's oscar's grind on a other thread as a example, the easiest system ever devised and yet how many besides him are able to pull it off ?
    there is your answer though, the technique has to be flawless. anyone can trow a punch, but who can make it count ? my best advise is very simple. pick a method that fits your character, use a large bankroll to allow you for "mistakes' and the fear of losing, have a plan prepared that gives you 5 0r 6 mini banks with higher levels upon losses and go for it.
    also practice for a month and see if you can double it 3 times before playing for real money. if you can discipline yourself to do that the risk of going in business for yourself may be worth taking, like any other business.
    and one last thing ; dont share your knowledge around with the people who wont support you and stay away from reading about other, and other, and another system while you are doing your thing, friendly advice.
    listen to your better self always !

    Regards,

    Rinad

    Making a living and winning long-term regular can be two different things. My guess is that there's a big difference between a person who makes his entire living solely on gambling. I don't. There's a time that I thought I might want to. But it's a stressful boring lonely endeavor. I'm satisfied with you regular winning supplementing my income

    A winning style need to be objective, mechanical and can be replicate by any or most any old cat. Subjective styles are worthless. Also betting on players is coconut city and so doing will diminish yer chances of winnin well and regular. Lastly, cats need to dispense with the stops loss/win bulls shits and just treat it like the business grindin so many shoe per week, so many week per year. It ain't rocket science baby, hey hey.

    Also the shrewd cat wanna take advantage of the only bargain what the casino offer, the bankers bet. Avoid goin down the road of the trendings/patterns captureshoes reading/go with a flow nonsenses and foolishness. And that's about it, hey hey.

    Sucksfan with his ongoing disinformation Mantra is sooooooooo full of s***.

    Seriously what is wrong with this stuck in time ego tripper? It's in an hour flight to Connecticut and he could be flatbetting making $15,000 an hour....... but, nope.....he's a shrewd cat all right. Better stay home close to the food bank.

    The idiocy is dumffounding!

    I mean really sucks fan. Why don't you just pony up with the truth. You don't have the money to make the investment to make even. a nickel after sitting in front of a computer for like 10,000 hours testing! Think about 10,000 hours of testing! My God that's like 3 years worth. Go get a job at McDonald's for crying out loud!

    Not sure if you’ve noticed or have been on the dark side lately, but the new stadiums have 4 bac games going at once.

    Here in skipptophia live stadium always 4 games but only two dealers, unfortunately the one dealer can and does cock it up on one or even both games simultaneously, the comedy gets even better when the other dealer tries to help, all of a sudden your 4 games become 2 then one then none . Waiting waiting waiting for the pit boss from across the factory . Here they throw the novice on the deal at stadium because it’s an automatic function of just pulling a card , listening to the beep as if another card is required. Cannot be that hard surly? That is why I hold them in such low regard, then they post on forum how smart they are
    Yeah right princess.
    Jae is there 4 dealer or 2 ? Cheers

    Not really a long time, previously posted I used to Marty and $3200, $6400, $12800 was my swing so large amount was not the issue per say. The radical swing did put me emotionally to crack.

    So when I worked out what suited me as a selection criteria, then I trialled it on paper using a ladder progression bet of +1 unit , on loss and -1 unit on win

    (1,2,3,4,5,4,3,4,5,6,5,4,3,4,3,2etc)

    then I went from paper betting to target betting as I continue to trial the method ( skin in the game) on paper. Upon refining the process I saw that I could flat bet easily and didn’t need to bet for a gazillion hands of being on a win streak to give it back on the downhill then have the shoe end and be mid stride on a bet progression of the -/+1 ladder bet.

    With the thought of “actually knowing I will win” as opposed to “hopefully” I will win , the flat bet unit became really appealing to me. From my practice and target bets I could see the drawdown ( flat betting unit) was less than a -/+ unit progression meaning I can and do leave the table when ever I CHOOSE , the value of the drawdown was no longer influencing me to remain and TRY to recoup the amount immediately.

    The initial (target betting as I trialled the initial process once I drew the conclusion that I no longer had to -/+ unit bet ) flat betting was the stadium minimum of $10. After awhile and much thought on the matter ( refining the process) I committed to a $100 unit as my bet size.

    In the other thread previously posted I set myself target/goals/ way points and increased the unit value as per those criteria being achieved as posted on that thread. It was a matter of a few months to be at $500 unit, less than 6 months in calendar terms and way way less in actual hours spread out over the 6 months. The unit I bet now has been explained on other thread, it is a realistic unit in my opinion for reasons previously posted. Many people think I should be betting at a larger unit size , I have addressed that also on the other thread.

    The real question is not being able to handle the unit size ( sorry Linda Lovelace lol , gag gag ) the real questions are
    A) do you have a reliable method
    B) do you have a reliable bankroll
    C) are you able to stick to your process
    D) are you self correcting , emotional stable, well rested,NOT GAMBLING, not drink/ drugs playing, not trying to impress those around you ( you know the look at me I’m winning fuktard) equally not let the emotional rage of losing to control you?
    E) have you broken your bankroll down into 5 sub day play bankroll allowing your self to lose yet have 4 back up bankroll to come back next time.
    F) are you using a dedicated bankroll that is ONLY to be used for the wagering on your method? Not a quasi ariry fairy imagination bankroll but real hard cash?
    G) is your bankroll being replenished and INCREASED to enable you to go to the next unit level at a workable higher denom or are you skimming the cream off as you go ?
    H) with the above points in mind do you have realistic expectations on your rate of return on your unit size which ultimately determine the 5 x 1 day play bankroll that you will start with?

    With the above points in mind ( and as posted on other thread) the ability to handle the large unit size is automatically taken care of by the steps listed already. The confidence of winning from your selection criteria automatically takes care of the cash flow as posted previously. You actually grow into it comfortably would be the best way to describe it, cheers.

    yes I've been playing again since I've come back. I got a method that I can play three or four shoes at once simultaneously that's pretty easy to do and I was doing it over there. But when I'm playing my normal game I go to the light side where I can see better. Maybe I'll see you over there.
