When I first started playing Bacc, I could keep the last 20-25 hands in my head(worked well for card counting too).
They then started adding the damn boards showing all the hands. I would stare at the table to avoid those things.
Nothing worse than looking up and seeing the Player win 76% and you could have been there. My % on the player could have been higher , but I didn't track it in my head.
Unfortunately, age has limited my memory, or I'm just lazy now.
Bacc is good if you don't stay too long. My downfall, as I love the game.
A shoe seems to rollover about 3 times in it's life. Say, the player hasn't won more than two in row.
You can wait for that event and pound the banker , or play either after the first player win, if a player win and you bet that repeat, you're a winner. If you bet bank and the player repeats, then you pound the bank on next.
Once the pattern breaks, it's not coming back. Don't use that trend again unless it establishes itself somewhere else in the shoe. The shoe has "turned over", as I like to say.
Say you've just gone 3 players in a row, crushing our previous trend and probably the table as everyone was on the bank after two. You have sort of a Darvas Box situation, where "two" was the players 52wk high and he's now broken that threshold. I will ride that breakthrough.
I once walked up to table that was empty and I knew was full previously. Looking at the board. The player's threshold was 3 in a row. The last thing on the board was 4 players in a row. I pointed to the 4th entry and asked the dealer if that was where they exited the table? yes, she said, they were heavy the other way.
I sat down and put a $100 on the player......he won 6 more in a row. I had gone to $200 by the 3rd hand. When it ended after 6 hands I tipped the dealer and cashed out.
I also track the market of the first two cards out. In my head. I will take note of where the first two will move down/up in a cycle. Maybe the player comes out higher every time vs. the banker. My only losses would be on the draw as I have him beat on the deal and the possiblity of a face on the lower two gives me a winner.
Once again I'll set a low/high for each player and if he breaks then I'll ride it.
That's probably a lot of gibberish for a game of "flipping a coin".
