Hi, I am a seasoned gambler, I have been playing Baccarat at the Burswood Casino In Perth Western Australia since the place opened 30 odd years ago.
I love playing the game so I am there seven days a week for three or four hours a day. Now here's the thing, I spent about 15 years trying all sorts of
fancy betting progressions to try and show a profit to no avail, I would always come back to losing the dreaded table % on average.
Then I said to myself If you are going to beat this game you have to do it with flat bets, so I turned my attention to the flow of cards and slowly over a
period of 3 years developed a bet selection method that left me in front over most three hour sessions.
For the last 10 years playing almost every day for three 80 hand shoes and placing about 25 bets per shoe my results vary from minus 2 units
to plus 22 units per three shoe session for an average win of 12 units per session.
Now my problem is that this should not be possible mathematically based on what I have read on this site, so before I move from the main gaming
floor to the high rollers little spot, I would love for someone to calculate wether my extraordinary success can still fall within the bounds of lady luck
and the whole thing will fall apart when I start playing the \$100 tables!!
I am interested to hear of anyone else having such a long run of success, or maybe the wizard can make a comment.

so \$25 units let say
\$25 * 12 = \$300
\$300 * 200 days lets say
\$60,000 a year, simple and easy

if \$100 tables will change your mojo you have maintained over 10 yrs...
just play 6 shoes a day and double your money!

Betting flat don't feed the bulldog! Over time you won't win more than 50% of yer placed bets, unless you are the gr8888888one of course. With my style I can win, well and regular even if I win just 16.666666666% of my placed bets, but over time I'll win over 49%, so it's all good, hey hey.

my results vary from minus 2 units to plus 22 units per three shoe session for an average win of 12 units per session.

So you have played roughly 3000 sessions (10 years x 365 days), flat betting for 75 rounds per session ... and the worst session result is -2 units ? That is amazing, definitely not due to lady luck.

Can anyone in Perth go verify the claim. Just verify no session end up worse than -2 units after 75 flat bets. I think watching "TheProfessor" for 20 sessions would be sufficient prove.

Personally, if you can win consistently flat betting? You have beaten the game. Don't ever use progressions. AND.....most importantly, test your method using a simulator. Over a long period of time. Make sure that you test your method over a big enough sample size. That is more important than anything!

Good job man!

A gambler calling himself a professor? Not a real professor, or one without math abilities?

Just asking, as an educated person should be able to determine if his results are beyond 3 standard deviations of random results.

PS: and not a sock puppet either?

Y'all know when it comes to mathematics its just useless for me but I doubt its a question of education or professors. And I don't know nothing about even one standard deviation, much less three of them things. All you have to do is "be on the lookout for bimbos". If they are all daubing a bit extra perfume before they go to his table and they are all edging their necklines down an inch or so, then you can be sure the three deviations have indeed been met.

What is this "method" of which you speak?

Otherwise, you cannot be taken seriously.
