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. Ain't that a kick, TTB?

Stay well, my friend,



Yeah, you'll get booted.....but as soon as declare you can't win.....you will come into favor with the rocket scientists that lord over the forum. EvenBob will bless you and maybe ************.as long as he's not preoccupied with the price of the yellow metal.

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


Your belief in the Gambler's Fallacy is demonstrably incorrect, and on this forum you should expect to be reminded of that fact with regularity -- especially whenever you loudly proclaim that you have an infallible player-favorable baccarat system. Because you don'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.

Gr8player, What area do you play in?

Do you understand why so many people are in your face? You are making claims of this mystical winning method but, you don't even know when or if you have an advantage, you only think your winning by using guess work (feelings) to decide when and how much to bet. Then at the end of the year you depend on the accuracy of the casinos tracking system do determine if your a winner or not. It is well known that the casinos tracking systems are far from accurate. Often times you can be losing money and the casinos have you as winning or vice versa.

Why would anyone have a full time job if they were as skilled as you claim?

You really don't see how ridiculous this claim sounds?

You think its just math some of these guys are doing on paper? Trust me there are some AP's out there that have spent their entire life beating casinos with PROVEN methods. They don't just do math on paper. Theses guys can practically turn led into gold they figured out any and all possible angles,things you could not even imagine being possible. If there was some way they could beat baccarat they would have figured it out years ago made millions and written about it.

Brillant, Axel....whatever.....a five dollar bettor is not entitled to an opinion.......head over to the Casino reviews section and tells us what you think of Circus Circus.

Hey, Pabo.....I bet your a 5 dollar bettor....if you actually bet.



Nope, but I would be if any of the casinos in the area offered $5 miminums. My games of choice are blackjack, video poker and baccarat. Maryland Live! is most convenient to where I live, but I occassionally visit Dover Downs. If you get to DD early enough, they'll have a few $5 bj tables open for a short while. I used to drive up to Harrah's Philadelphia where they would often open tables with $5 minimums until the crowd starts filtering in. I don't visit Philly casinos much anymore, though, due to the distance (3 1/2 hour drive plus tolls) and the lame comps at Harrah's, Sugarhouse and Parx. Not worth the trip.

Yeah, I'm a low roller TTB. I'm retired and lving on a fixed income, which is very limiting. Anyway, gambling is not what I live for. I do it mostly for the challenge (counting cards at bj, trying to play perfect strategy at video poker). As for baccarat, that's a break from bj and vp. I like to try a few hands. It's an exciting game. Like varmenti and gr8player, I fiddle with bet manipulation and trying to bet into streaks. Unlike varmenti and gr8player, however, I recognize that no betting progression, money mangement or strategy/system will win long term. Baccarat is a guessing game, no more, no less. That said, I'm ahead ever so slightly at baccarat--maybe $200 over five years. Up a little bit at vp, too. In fact, I've been somewhat lucky, having hit five royal flushes in the past four years.

Haven't been successful at all with blackjack, however. Even with counting cards. I like Arnold Snyder's Red Seven Count, which is easy to learn and apply. I used Hi Opt 1 count when I first tried card counting, but I found converting running count to true count to be too difficult in a casino environment. Found myself making too many mistakes. Red Seven Count isn't perfect, but it's easy to learn and apply and improves basic strategy.

So, you're a High Roller, then?

Hello, MathExtremist.

I'm afraid that there's nothing "infallible" about my Baccarat play, as much as I'd wish it so. I put my money onto the felt just like everyone else, hoping it comes back a winner.

And I play with a plan. What is it that is so difficult to fathom, my friend? I play with a plan. I play the same way each and every time, and I adjust my bet placements and sizes according to statistics that I keep track of.

There's my whole Baccarat play, right there in a nutshell. What is so difficult to fathom about that? I know a half dozen fellas in AC doing the same thing...not necessarily the same way, but the gist of it has many similarities.

I'm not a rocket scientist, just a patient and disciplined and consistent Baccarat player. A player with a plan. A darn good plan.
