Nah, fellas, that's not fair game......

......you are, in effect, calling me a liar.

I will (and do) accept much from this forum, as I am fully aware of the (un)popularity of many of my views on gaming, but I will not accept your attempts to label me as a liar.

Maybe you need to speak with the Asian lady that sat on the chair to my right during that good last shoe yesterday afternoon, who first tried literally to pry my Bac scorecard out of my hands, and then, failing that, asked me what the writing on the bottom half was all about.

She not only witnessed my play; she "hopped aboard" mid-way through the shoe.

Think about it for a minute:

If you saw a player making rather selective bets and hitting almost all of them, especially at the second half of the shoe, what would you do? You see, my first group of seven...again, if you don't understand that, google my progression....ended with 4W and 3L, so a +1. From that point on, however, I went 9W against only 2L. By the end of the shoe, everyone was "all aboard".

(Sidenote: In reality, I could've given her my scorecard....she'd never have figured out what I was doing and how I came upon my bets anyhow. And I don't save them anymore, I only rip them up after I record the results in my ledger.)

Well, you claim to have a strike rate in the range of 53 to 54 percent, but you won't put your money where your mouth is. If this was the truth, you would gladly bet on it.

So, no one is calling you a liar. They are just pointing out that most of what you say are lies.

Priceless, AxiomOfChoice, absolutely priceless. You, my friend, have your way with words.

I flipped silver dollar the other day, it landed on heads 77 times in a row. The Leprechaun I found, predicted this would happen.

No congrats to me? My story is just as true as his is.



lol

OT, but the other day I was playing BJ here in South Korea. To my left was a nice older gentleman from Ireland, complete with strong accent. We struck up a conversation as he won the poker tournament last weekend. We were having a good time, whenever he had a blackjack, we would say, "the ol' luck of the Irish" lol.

Anyway, upon dealer change, a younger Korean male starts dealing at the table, and he speaks English with get this- a slight Irish accent. So now the old guy is thinking he is just trying to make fun of him and says to the dealer, so you think you are a funny guy? etc, etc. Dealer doesn't know what he is talking abut, old man explains. Then the dealer tells us he learned English while studying abroad in Ireland, lol. They hit it off great after that, exchanging stories about Ireland, lol.

gr8,

Your baccarat plays is fine and just about right. The short and narrow is the way to go. Don't know about your actual plays and how you record your cards but keep doing what you are doing. Especially in terms of just flat betting. Something egalite/RolexWatch will never understand and achieve.

If you maintain that kind of discipline when you are in Vegas at a $100 table, you will do very well. Speaking of Borgata they need to open up more of their damn tables especially the ones with the Pair Betting. Too many flock to those EZ bac ones which are a time drag.

And where is egalite/RolexWatch to by pass his ban with a proxy? LOL. I am sure he would be popping up soon with his extravagant loonie bin stories of pulling in 20K winning 900 of his 901 sessions within three days. I find those Peter Keating Look At Me triumphs quite inspiring along with his obsession of hookers and sleeping pills.

Hello, D-man, I trust all is well with you, my friend.

Yes, the "short and narrow"...frankly, the simpler one's plan is, the more likely to both succeed and flourish. Comfortability comes with familiarity.

As to "how I record my cards", it's not hieroglyphics by any means, but my abbreviations and circles would serve to confuse the avg player.

Lastly, as to the "flat-betting"....I do, for the most part, flat-bet. That is because of my strike rates; I'll seek to adjust my bet sizes only during those times where my plays are hitting well-below avg.

It is in those instances where I'll utilize my conservative progression, and that'll serve to ''right the ship" insofar as I would still eke out a minor victory even in the face of any below-avg strike rate session.

(Sidenote: And, by "minor victory", I mean that I'll gladly accept "even" and deem it as victorious in those more-difficult sessions. Why? Because "loss avoidance" is a win in my book, seen as fending off my variance downturns as best as possible. And, my friend, when you're able to that successfully, all that you're left with is the much-easier winning sessions.)

As always, I wish you the very best of it. Stay well.
