Are professional gamblers a myth? Thinking out loud

Then again, if I was a professional gambler, I wouldn't be looking at this website anyway.

Here's the thing about professional gambling. Even when you have the edge, you can be beat. Even when the edge is against you, you can win.

Baccarat is an example of a game where there is a larger percentage of people who play that game who have been lucky enough to have lifetime wins compared to other games (for example, double-zero roulette).

For those lucky people, they can play the game professionally.

But as far as setting out to be one of those lucky people, it's like setting out to inherit money. It happens to you, not as a result of something you do, you just either have it or you don't.

But can anyone do it? No! But is there someone doing it? Absolutely! And they do! But the anyone versus someone is the distinction. And those lucky people will sometimes think that their luck is the result of "following the dragon" or other cultural myths related to being lucky.

The Asian culture has plenty of it's own tales to explain the fortune of those who are lucky.

Baccarat holds in Nevada were 1.2 billion dollars over the last 12 months. Some Baccarat players play so huge and so big they take a few risks very very infrequently and coast! That's the way to win. Having over $100,000 on a single bet in Baccarat is something that happens every day in Las Vegas in the few places that cater to these individuals, many of whom are very lucky.

But these same people who do this are not like you and I at all, assuming you're an American. Go and observe them in the high limit rooms and you can see for yourself, though. It's entertaining to watch.

Really?...enlighten us as to where we could get better info. I think you'll find the members/staff here pretty knowledgeable.

I'm not as sure about any exact dollar amount as much as I am sure about those that "play baccarat and leave winning" on a fairly consistent basis.

And, liuryan, as much as it might seem rather difficult to fathom to the majority on this forum, it is not very difficult to accomplish.

The commonalities among these sorts of Bac players are as follows:

1.) Strict bet selection process: They don't "guess" as to where to bet, and they don't stray from their "preferred" plays.

2.) Strict money-management rules: Tight won goals and stop losses. Win goals anywhere between 10 and 20 percent. Win more? Sometimes. But always put a "hold" on that 10-20%, and never dip into it. Never turn a winner into a potential loser. Never. Stop losses? Even more important. At a difficult session, get as much "recoup" as you can and either a) quit at "even", or b) "eat" the remaining loss, as miniscule as you can get it down to. Losses shortened and/or averted are as good as wins; true winners are well aware of this reality.

3.) Know your strengths and your weaknesses, and remain truthful in those self-assessments. Only then can you maximize their usefulness.

4.) Keep meticulous records of your Bac play. Write down everything, because "everything" matters. Only this way will you become familiar with your statistics and variances. And then, eventually, you'll come to embrace those stats/variances. And what does that do for you? It eliminates (or, at the very least, lessens) the "element of surprise" at the tables. You're better prepared. Which leads to a better state of mind at the tables.

Can you see how one thing leads to another, to another, to another......
.......all, accumulatively, leading to long term success at this game. (Or, at the very least, it puts you in the very best possible position to succeed. And, frankly, isn't that our most imperative responsibility at the tables?) Baccarat gaming is a unique "proposition". A unique undertaking. It take a unique person with a unique personality (read: mindset) and a unique temperament (read: patient/disciplined) with a unique desire to succeed. And, even then, you're guaranteed nothing.....every shoe, every session, the "counter resets to zero" and you've got to do it all over yet again, for the umpteenth time.....proving your mettle over and over again. The easiest and surest way to do that? Accept short wins, graciously, and move on......play your very best game, at all times, and move on.....accept minor losses, graciously, and move on...... Always knowing that it is you that'll get the better of it over the long term, if only you can keep yourself from messing that up.

I wish you all the very best of it.

Yes. A better statement would be a professional gambler would have little reason to POST on this board, but absolutely they'd want to look at it.

Ok that I can agree with.. just found the OP a little snarky that's all.
