Day 46 play.

Baccarat.

Not a good one!

-85000

Note: Lately, for security reasons, session reports are not necessarily presented in real time corresponding directly to the day played.

And this is the MDawg challenge.

Did this event occur at the casino/hotel you are staying at or at another venue?

It was at a casino I had simply walked into for a session. The way it went was I was up a little, maybe +10K, then down about -45K, then rallied to go to about +55K, then again was down about -30K then again to about +55K, then had a series of really big bets that took me way down, and then I stopped. I should have taken the +55K which was the ceiling I hit twice after being down a fair amount twice, but I kept pushing it too far, and for that - I paid the price.

Besides the obvious of not accepting a nice amount ahead and just walking, part of the problem was that I hadn't eaten much of anything that day. I was pretty much starved by the time I had played for several hours. I started telling myself that I needed to take a break to eat, but I pushed onwards, caught up in all the moments of when I was winning hand after hand. Eventually when the inevitable period arrived when I was losing most of the hands, I lacked the self control to stop partly because I was hungry and tired. High stakes gambling is serious business and you have to be in top physical and mental shape to take proper advantage of the sometimes ever changing situations.

Yes of course. Nothing is worse than ending up behind after being ahead! However I was shooting for a bigger win than +55K and that turned out to be a bad thing.

Which gets back to what I have said many times in the past, that it's often not the house edge that takes us behind, or our player advantage that takes us ahead, but the realisticness (is that a word?) of our goal as measured against our bankroll and the casino max bet. If the goal is unrealistic, bets are varied greatly (not flat betting) and one's sessions are all do or dies to get that unrealistic goal or walk away losing a lot or even the entire session bankroll, over time I think the results will not be good and will reflect a loss of more than the house edge (assuming no player advantage).

For example, I know a really big Bacc player who is allowed to play to $400,000. per hand, and this player has a seemingly limitless bankroll, but whatever the player has available each trip at the casino, whether 5 million or 10, or whatever, seems to lose it every time all of it, never walks with anything, always plays until nothing left. I assume is chasing insurmountable losses or has some unrealistic goal each time.


Typically when I have a big blowout like the Day 46 loss I take a break for several days. Writing about it here and reflecting on it helps too.

It also comes back to the discussion cwwbjr have been having for some time about what is the safest and least time consuming way to advance my play. While going for +50K or more wins each time is definitely feasibly, clearly trying to go for such a win each time also leads to blowouts of equal or even greater numbers.

Going for 10 - 15K per a session seems more definite, and I can't recall too many sessions where I didn't get ahead at least somewhere in that neighborhood at some point. If indeed 10 - 15K is manageably sustainable sans blowouts that might just be the way to go.

Visited the Ethel M. chocolate botanical cactus garden in Henderson, decorated with over a million Christmas lights and Holiday decor. The line the night we went was about twenty minutes long. Admission fee a mere dollar per person, but drinks such as hot chocolate are $5. and photos with Santa $25. each (we bought two, and then got all five digital pics as downloads too). My wife looked pretty darling on Santa's lap, and when asked what she wanted for Christmas said, Diamonds!

Next to the cactus garden visit the Ethel M. chocolate factory and view the confectionery making process.
