But I also happen to believe that it is, with the proper manipulation of both bet selection and bet size, surmountable.



This would only be true if you knew you had an advantage when you increased your bet size. Do you know exactly when you are playing at an advantage during each shoe?

He can't know, because then he'd have an identifiable edge, and he doesn't.

EvenBob, if you don't mind, please refrain from any attempts at speaking for me, as I much prefer my truth over your triviality. Your purpose in this forum is well-documented, mostly by your very own hand; you've made your bed, now you must lie in it.

Zcore13, hello, my friend. I hadn't seen a post from you for quite a while, I trust all is well with you.

While I must defer and answer with a "no" as to "knowing exactly when I'm at an advantage", I have a very good idea of same. You see, I could never be certain, for this game has no room for any certainty on the player's part.

But, that said, I do have certain statistics that would point out certain "maneuvers" (both bet selection- and size-wise) as both viable and potentially profitable plays. And I play for them consistently. I never waver as I play to my statistics.

I've been wrong and I've been right. I take my lumps in the former and revel in the latter, and, either way, I adjust it all over again. I am forever making adjustments based upon certain statistics of mine.

And, can you see, Zcore13, I'm attempting to stay but a few steps ahead. I'm not looking to hit the lottery with my play. But I insist on success, or I will put my pen down for good. There is no middle ground....every year I get my results from each casino that I play in, and that number had better be positive. I've better things to do with my time than drive 6 hr round trips in a day and a half after working my full-time job....if it all didn't pay I wouldn't play. Simple as that.

EvenBob is brillant......the idea of challenging such brilliance is unspeakable.

But teacher, I don't understand? You've already lost $250,000 at baccarat, yet you're still playing! There must be some sort of mistake, right?

From the thread on Archie Karas being busted for marking cards:
"Karas set the record for the largest and longest documented winning streak in gambling history from 1992 to 1995, arriving in Las Vegas with $50 in his pocket and going on to amass $40 million from high-stakes poker.

He subsequently lost most of those winnings at baccarat and dice games in three weeks, according to Tom Sexton, who publishes the online gambling magazine Poker News."

Too bad Archie didn't know any baccarat or dice experts back then to help him out. I'm sure gr8player and varmenti could have helped him turn $40 million into $400 million. And Ahigh could have helped him with his dice play.

Hello, TTB, how are you?

Relax, my friend...don't let those two foolers get to you, for they are fooling nobody with their antics.

And you know what the "kicker" is, treetopbuddy? I'll probably get nailed by my favorite admin with a suspension before they ever will. How's that for justice, TTB?

Stay well, my friend,
