    In simple terms, most players inflict themselves with obfuscation of coherent functionality. Period. What I am saying, is that players tend to reinforce their wager selection process with believing they have found 'mechanical certainty' through visual observation of the shoe and/or assuming believe in previous trends/patterns. All they wind up doing is reinforcing something that really might or might not prevail.

    Problem, huge problem that is, the player winds up reinforcing a completely fake 'mechanical certainty' that remains random because of his previous wins that prevailed using whatever belief he deduced down to form that very same 'mechanical certainty'. The average player looks for favorability in situations through his own rationalization of, 'what it should be', again referring to his false and dangerous belief in 'mechanical certainties'.

    Now before you say there are trends and patterns in baccarat, sure there is--I agree. However, there is for a short period of time and as much as those patterns/trends tend to repeat themselves within one shoe or multiple shoes or even over a period of time----the flip side/the ugly side is----they will not repeat themselves for an equal amount of time as well.

    Furthermore, any published information for sale or otherwise concerning 'systems', guaranteed they are deliberately meant to confuse you as well as dazzle you with all sorts of statistics and stories about making easy money.

    So, you are really saying that baccarat is a guessing game, which is what it is....................

    Yeah I don't really understand the point of this thread. I don't play a lot of Bac, but looking for a pattern to decide which way to bet is pretty common practice among all games. No different than sitting at a craps table and watching someone crush hardways or 4s and 10s and placing a bet on those numbers. The odds aren't any different, and there's no guarantee it will continue to happen, but it's either that or just take wild ass guesses every hand.

    I don't think anyone who's betting a player or banker streak in Bac is certain it's going to keep going indefinitely (I mean sooner or later it is going to end), but playing a streak is simply a strategy. Every game in the casino is a game of chance and we guess what the outcome will be. Having a strategy for your betting isn't going to hurt or help you, but having one isn't a bad thing. Playing a pattern, or taking wild ass guesses, the expected result is the same.
