Spying on the guy sitting next to you
« on: January 02, 2017, 01:17:23 PM »
One of the things that make playing roulette in brick and mortar casinos more enjoyable is that you can "spy" on the next guy and see how he plays. Sometimes it is a guy who seems like he knows what he's doing and makes a nice profit.

Have you ever learn anything either by watching or speaking to another player you met on the casino?
What was his system?

 When l started to play roulette, l witnessed one pro team playing. The bettor covered entire table by different denominations in 5-6 seconds. It was impressive !!! It really changed the way l was looking to the game in general.
  In couple of different acasions l sou pro teams bias players . I jumped on their bets and had a nice profit.
   Ones l went to meat John JafCo in person. I had a chance to compare his predictions to mine, it teached me that need to pay atention on every spin to adjust properly.
   We can learn a lot with others.... they rarely will speak openly about how they play, but may give a hint or idea that helps.

About 30 years ago, I was  not aware of card counting. I was at a casino in Hamburg and one American were sitting at the  Blackjack winning. I did not know much of that game then.  I put some sidebets (playing on his cards) and won some. I did not won as much as he, as when he rise the bet at table max, I could not bet on his cards.

At roulette I have seen some funny thing, when people pretending not knowing each over, sitting down playing opposite EC, they never win, and lose half on zero. They use to abuse the free services available, and try to find tables with celebrities. You can have quite fun at highroller table for 100 box (They leave when they lost 100-200)..

John seems like a very nice and kind guy - I have exchanged a couple messages with him. Are you still in contact? How is he doing?

Over a three day holiday weekend I watched a newbie's life change over the number 32. The number 32 and the surrounding numbers on the table layout were hot for two days straight. This was when I was playing for ten hour stretches at a time. So this guy comes in the second day and continues to clean up on placing big bets on 32 and smaller bets on its neighbors. He was up $11,000 by the middle of the second day and then -- you know what happened. By mid day he had taken a break to call his boss and quit his job. He had found exactly what his life had always been missing. The number 32 was his ticket to the  bigs.

As we all know the streak could not last. He lost the $11,000 and fed the table another $5,000 of his own money by the end of the third day. What a whirlwind of a weekend.

About 6 years ago I was in one casino and there was a person maybe like 60 years old and had a cork little board with him on the table with some signs like pictograph and after every spin he was putting an extra thumback on the board.
I remember he was betting columns and some lines bets and I remember he was progressing in the same column and after the win he stopped playing.
He took his winning chips and went for taking the cash.
His attitude looked pretty Pro to me.

Pros don't bet lines and columns while using thumb tacks to keep track.

most people bet many numbers, it seems, ...

Absolutely the norm and I have zero sympathy for them when they get wiped out.

Only play a few numbers, unless the odds are fair , on NOZ or wheels with fair payback, we can bet many numbers .

I don't know about you but always when I'm arriving at the trench-tables I know what I'm going to see;
Bunch of gamblers spreading their money wherever their hands can reach, a table full of chips, dealer shovels away the losing ones into the pit-hole and a small part returns to few winners.

I've read many great systems around forums for years, why I see none of them at the trench-tables?!
Chips cover almost whole table layout as blanket, big amounts lost in seconds and you have to stay unresponsive to all these, it's almost unhuman!

Here are some worthy and not so worthy tips, I'm not endorsing any of them, just use your judgement.

1) Follow the money - Notice who on the table is winning more and follow (you don't know how long is going to last and if he decides to gradually raise amounts how far would you follow?)

2) Stay out of harm - Keep your bets away from where the most money have been bet (Just in case...)

3) Cat @ Mouse - Wait for the dealer to spin the ball first and then place your bet(s) (Just in case...)

4) Watch a film - Before you start betting see if you like how the action evolves before your eyes, if the film is unpleasant, there is always next table,casino,day (would you have won?)

5) Breaking points - Decide a limit for losses, say 2 or 3 and if/when that occurs move away from the particular table for about 20 to 30 minutes (break down a bad momentum)

Well that's all for now.
