Boy, I've really missed out on all of the GR8 One's whoppers over the past 7 years. One moment he's asked to write a book on baccarat, the next moment he's Carnac the Magnificent...LOL! I swear, this guy never ceases to amaze me. *chuckle*

Or were he was "made up" absolutely rapped because the car jockey knew his name, or when some staff member stood there, watched then complimented his play during their 'off'' time. Not only do I think that wouldn't be allowed, dealers sometimes compliment my tolerance, but when they get tapped, they wouldn't stand around watching any punter nor would any waiter staff, so not really sure who was watching what? Only in Walter Mitty's world do such things happen, such as being rated to win on a casino computer system?????

Don't you just use multiple lines in the Labby,
like

1 1 1 1 1
2 2 2 2 2
1 1 1 1 1

This keeps it from getting volitile.

I've progressed beyond that.

Sounds like you use a martingale system, but stop at 8 or something, then start over? Ya that's never been done before.

Please do me a favour, don't insult my intelligence. Earlier bought in for "3 bags" and walked out with 3150 profit, a tad over 100% of the buyin. My initial goal was anything over 1k, but after getting hit on the last shoe on the $10 min table and being 200 down. I took out my frustration and rounded everything up and add a bit more for the buggeration factor, well a lot more actually. TBH I'm on my best ever run since playing this game back in 2004 and any variation or smell of a Marty is nowhere to seen.

Predictive theories for bacarrat have been proven mathematically false, so it up to the bacarrat believers to show the math that it's mathematically true without some kind of magic involved. What card presentation gives you an edge over the house?

So then you combine with a betting system to state that you can overcome the house edge by varying bets and buying into a trend.

Hell, if you do that, you can apply the same betting methods to Blackjack, Craps, hell, even Roulette to beat the house. And plenty of people on this forum do just that. Then one day, or month, or year, they flame out, and you never hear from them again.

The problem is that over time, your loss will average out to the House Edge x the Average bet, over the long run. A few will win, most will lose.

Yeah okay. Not sure whom your post is aimed at? I do not try and predict anything as it would be futile. You stick to your maths theories, I will stick to my application of it being easier to win a single bet within in a series of hands rather than every bet within a series of hands. I'm sure that rings true with you mathites. I don't trend, because unlike some I appreciate there is no correlation between past and future hands, besides being a load of nonsense and speculation.

Similar to GR8, who cares about the house edge, do you really think I am some lucky novice punter who has just grinded an original 1k buyin back on Sept 17 to 30k+ more or less playing every day. Some sessions have been smooth, such as todays, some have been a nightmarish and lasted longer than 20hr+ (had two of those back to back, you do what you have to do to avoid defeat, paying the cost of time than losing a roll). A few times the casino have had my balls in a vice and not managed to cripple me, such as coming back from a 8k deficit with 1k and still leaving with a decent enough profit, table composure being paramount no matter how tired and mentally drained you feel.

Digressing for a moment, let me share with something I witnessed in another territory. I rock up to my local on a Friday night, in their favourite spot is a reputed 96 year old Chinese woman (some say she was over 100). I go home after a few hours, return Sat, she is still there. In fact she was still there Monday night. She never left the place from when I arrived Fri and finally went home Monday evening, the dealers were telling me, sometimes she never left her chair during the shuffle and we are talking a slow Big Bac game. Her only mistake, was thinking Monday was actually Sunday, not that she seemed worst for wear for that minor forgetful slip, although best not to sit next to her as her breath smelt like cat food. Personally I have to stretch after sitting for any shoe, nobody should complain about feeling fatigued in a casino, if she can go that long placing the odd Banker and Tie bet, well anybody can.

Returning to your post, so when is this house edge suppose to kick in? My edge is kicking it every day. I've no idea how many shoes I've play, must already be in the many many hundreds as I've had multiple sessions in the same day, which would also increase my consecutive winning count. What is really working in my favour, is that I have no commitments on this jaunt, the place is open 24/7, nobody is questioning "where have I been", "what time do you call this". I can sleep during the day, gamble at night, sleep at night, gamble during the day, answerable to nothing but my conscience. I also don't hide behind a computer screen, I am easy to find.

Am I running the risk of burn out? Who knows, I am acutely aware of the pitfalls of what winning too often and what it will do to your psyche or travelling to a casino expecting to win easily. As a mat8 often reassures me, my "edge" is me, nobody will ever be able replicate what I do, simply because they are not me, it's not just a matter of bet selection which all resolve equally anyhow, nor just the staking scheme utilised, it also includes how you are going to handle pressures of draw-downs, handling chit-chat from the pit, casino heat, not possible to be under the radar any longer, be my guest and measure that!

For some cream on the top, the casino are pretty generous with their comps program, already accumulated another "bag" via their points program (venue pays rather well to entice people to gamble), plus decent "nose-bag" (food), top shelf drinks free (once I'm finished) via comps or exclusive program membership.

Another member who posts primarily about baccarat (and whose first post includes praise for gr8player). Interesting.

These comps programs in Oz are buck wild. From playing in the UK were you are lucky to get £5 for playing a night (during the Rank take over you got nothing, a fat zilch). On the G/coast I get everything thrown at me, free food and drinks 24/7, bonus shopping vouchers earned via points ($1200k thus far), enough casino points to stay and eat for free for two weeks at Conrads at least (I'm staying an extra one, all I had to do is pay for my flight change). At Sky City I've $1200 in points which can be exchanged for cash when I feel like, plus then send out $60 worth of vouchers per month which you don't have to match play, rather can exchange for casino chips.

I've heard at some places, if you buyin' or wire 50k, they will fly you in and give you 5k worth of free chips and you are not committed to use any of the $50k, add to that money you can rake from the tables, not a bad life-style. Heard of some Chinese high rollers that were $5M up last night, betting the table max of $250k per hand behind closed doors. No CSM's in the VIP areas on the BJ tables. Chatting to one of the bosses he was telling me somebody even brought in one the locally built roulette computers to demo in the place???? So they now keep a careful watch on anybody betting very late, or those that might keep one hand in their pocket while playing LOL.

May be if you start to play as much Baccarat as I do. You'll start to understand what GR8 is talking about.

No, if you play as much as you do (or he does) you should learn to know better than to believe the garbage that he spews.
