    Do you follow a standard betting progreesion? I tend to not press my wager whenever I think it is going to change between banker and player. I think I am leaving some money on the table doing so. I also need to find a good balance between pressing my bet and making sure I am maintaining some of my bank roll.

    In Baccarat, my choice of banker, player, or current streak. does not affect my betting pattern or progression.

    Not sure what the standard betting progression is. But I wager 1-3, 2-6 style and adjust my base bet every 10-15 hands based on my session bankroll.

    This means I bet $25, then $75, then $50, and finally $150 while on a winning streak of 4 hands.

    I am risking $25 to win $300. if I win 4 in a row. If i have no good streaks, then I am basically losing $25 a hand bitching internally that "lifes not fair". JK

    Tend to adhere to the 1-3-2-6 pretty much no matter what side if am wagering or switching to. Progressions are always used unless I pull down and back to the one unit during a positive progression or suddenly up my wager to well over the 6 units before I got to 6, etc.

    I think I will definitely try the 1-3-2-6. My betting has been more of a 1-1-2-3-4.

    ok, if you win 4 in a row, what next. Do you regroup and begin a new series, 25, then 75, then 50, 150??
    when you adjust your base bet, what do you adjust it to? sorry I'm a beginner.

    example, progression of 1-3-2-6

    Example, $100.00 wager start. $100-$300-$200-$600.

    Always back to one unit if you get to 4th wager or anything looses prior to the fourth wager.

    As far as moving to another progression, it's all your call. Personally I stick with the same for some time, if I am doing very well, I might move from 1-3-2-6 to a 3-6-4-12. Or, I simply adjust my wager size upwards using $1,000.00 wager instead of $500 ones, etc.

    Yep, just like Glen says here. The frustrating part is winning every other hand or streaks of 3 will shake your confidence.

    If my bankroll is flush, i don't waver. If my bankroll is light I may just do 1,3,1,3,1,3, and grind away some smaller wins.

    when betting with 1-3-2-6 and you sit down for your session, what determines if you will bet banker or player.?

    Also do you play that choice (only banker !00% or player 100%) for the entire session or do you go back and forth and if so why.? Thanks

    No one can answer to best suit your situation, IMO.

    Shoe specific on what is happening.
    What you are comfortable with, it's your money.
    What the shoe does, produces and has in the past few shoes.
    Type of profit you are seeking to leave.
    Type of play you are accustomed to.
    (And many more)............
