    my strategy is fairly fluid. I don't follow one single strategy like repeat or chop, etc. I try to read the board and the various roads and find patterns and hope that they repeat. sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. the good shoes will have 1 or 2 patterns that show up fairly early and you can just ride them until they break.

    the best shoes for me have strong patterns that hold true on multiple (all) roads at the same time. these are the easiest to bet because there's really no other option. the worst shoes for me are the ones where there really are no strong patterns and basically as soon as something shows up, it breaks.

    what's your strategy?

    Good to see this. As you know, I am a neophyte at bacc, and only play when we are both in town at the same time. I can read a couple of the boards fairly consistently, but not all 5 (?) of them together, or try to determine which board to follow if they are each saying something a little different. I think sometimes that those boards exist for the same reason the roulette board exists - to confuse the hell out of you!!

    Cover everything except the terrible two's. >>>>> Wager the opposite side of the last winning decision if it is the first single win. Then if it is already 2 repeat, wager the same side to keep winning. You only get burned on the repeat (terrible two) if you do wager the second one to cut, and you will only lose the last one when it does cut to the opposite side.

    Glen, when we first met, I liked your $500 bet, and then try to win 5 in a row by parlaying that $500 into a $16k win. Only risking $500 at a time, but could hit a good winning session if you hit a few of these in a show. Of course the problem is winning 5 in a row..............

    They certainly don't have the board to help a player.

    I haven't figured out a set strategy yet. I sometimes jump back and forth until a see a pattern. Sometimes I'll play one side or the other if it's really uneven. And sometimes I'll do a martingale on losing bets.

    I've won and lost at all methods. Most recently, the martingale has worked well for me. But I don't think I ever hit a streak of more than seven.

    Martingale is scary though. You get stuck on the wrong side and those bets get big....

    I don't think I could do that.

    Lately I've been flat betting my max a lot. The bad part of that is you can't press on a good run. But the good thing is any 4 or 5 in a row you can hit is a big win.

    Yep, absolutely scary. I'm not a big better and I hit table max doing it.

    I do a few different things Rich. I set aside $5k for $500 wagers with the ultimate goal of 10 attempts at 4 parlays to get to the $8k wager. Usually I wind up doing it once or twice, sometimes 3 times out of the ten. It's self control to keep trying it at different times and not get carried away and get into straight wagering of $2k to $5k a hand the way I used to. I also adhere to the 1-3-2-6 positive/negative progression no matter what, unless I am trying the $500 parlay 4 times. I don't play every hand, no way, suicide, maybe 1/2 a shoe at max.

    Mostly a dice player myself but I like betting the streaks although a choppy shoe will kill you there. I don't really have a set strategy though for when I dabble in baccarat.

    Recently I've just been flat betting banker and pressing on long streaks. It was fun for a few trips some I lucked out with some heavy banner shoes but ultimately it's fairly boring and variance gets you.

    I play much more conservative. It keeps me alive on a choppy game, but rarely do i turn 1k into 10k. More like 1k into 3-5k.

    Much like Glen, I have 10 predetermined flat bets. I will press each win once, and then bank the double win(or lose). Then I start with my 2nd flat bet and repeat I keep my banked chips separate from my flat bets. After 10 starting flat bets are done. I count my stack and divide by 10 and then start again. I play a max of 30 flat starting bets per session. On my last two flat bet starting bets I will press to 4 times, and then color up. Then get a hooker and drink! (or go to the room for more cash, haha)

    As for player and banker. I play banker to start a session, then just guess from there. I do look at the board much, and pay more attention to managing the bank roll.


    This is how I bet almost all table games, in fact.


    I never chase, and the opposite approach to this crazy martingale sh!t
