Lesson 1: Avoid a Monte Carlo scenario don't stay at the table for hours, protect yourself from doing stupid things, and protect your bankroll
Lesson 2: Learn to play ultra short sessions, don't exhaust yourself mentally, take breaks frequently
Lesson 3: Money Management !!! very important.Set yourself realistic targets of winnings per session and also stop loss barriers. When you hit your target or barrier, you get out of the session. Do not try to push your luck, when you're feeling things are going good today. In fact if you wanna be successful on the long run. You stick to your plan. In my Gameplan the target is 5% profit, the barrier is 3% loss.
Lesson 4: if you can apply lesson nr 3, it means you handle your emotions very well, which is necessary
Lesson 5: Learn about yourself when gambling, what kind of gambler are you. Are you a high risk player, do you feel good risking much to win big. Or do you prefer a more conservative approach with more patience? Simply because there are 100ers of systems out there, but which one could be suited for you depends a lot of what kind of gambler/ player you are.
Lesson 6: accept that whatever system isn't bullet proof. In my opinion there is no HG playing system. If you want something HG there is much more to it on how you approach the game A successful strategy will get you further than any system will.
Lesson 7: using progression isn't bad but don't use a very aggressive way. It something doesn't go well flat betting, a progression wont save you/it. but i wont discourage trying out progression as you go; because you still have to find a progression that suited your character as i player. Me personally i don't mind using a 1u up progression.
Lesson 8: don't approach roulette as a game. If you want to get something out of it, you got to invest time on it analyzing different styles of play, you don't want to lose money do you. So take this seriously, its not about having fun. You can have fun afterwards with the winnings you have made.
Lesson 9: trading and gambling have more similarities than you think, I am a day-trader myself, and my experience in that field sure helps me in the casino. Go have a look on Kav's article about it. In fact we all should read every article posted here. Very useful info available:Gambling vs Trading [nofollow]Roulette vs Stock Market [nofollow]
Lesson 10 forget the quote 'the best defense is a strong offense' . when gambling the reverse quote is more appropriate. The best offense is a strong defense.
Lesson 11: instead of going to tables with an attitude of wanting to win. Go to the table with the thought of not losing your money. When you don't lose , you actually are winning or have won. So the result is the same, but the difference in approach will make you play more defensively.
Lesson 12: there or tons of systems available, before you actually put real money on the table, be sure to test systems out, learn the strong sides of systems and the weak points. When you know this. It will be more clear for yourself what kind suits you best when gambling for real.
Lesson 13: their or no guarantees of winning when gambling. There is no fail-safe option. And their should not be one either. Nothing in life is for sure. You are put up with making choices every day and constantly, some will be good choices others will be bad. In fact life itself is one big gamble and that's what makes it worth living.
So if you are someone who doesn't except loss, a failure, you are looking for certainty, I suggest you stay away from casinos and everything that's related to gambling
So bottom-line of my kind of play, my believe, my gameplan, strategy of whatever you want to call it, in summary is all about 5 keywords:
Patience, Determination, Mindset, Money mangement, Discipline. If any my believe is, the famous HG is more about these 5 keywords than any system ever will be.
Lesson 14: I guess most of us have a favorite place to gamble. But i advice not just to stop there. When in your favorite casino. Invest your time in searching for you favorite dealer. Cause to my surprise this makes a huge difference.
And by favorite I don't mean, the cutest one, or the most social one, I mean the dealer who makes you win a lot more than others.
So there we are I put down a summary for everyone who hasn't seen my previous posted, because i have been away for a while for reasons of medical nature.
The reason why i included 'Lesson14' is because i wanted to know is 'dealers signature' is just noise, a stupid fairy-tale. Or something worth paying attention to.
Where i play roulette, there are 8 different dealers who switch tables every half hour.
When playing session with them all , i can categorize them into 3 different groups
Category C: dealers i tend to avoid. Only have winning sessions about 1 out of 3
Category B: dealers i don't mind playing from time to time. They give me around Break even effect in terms of winning and losing session. But keeping in mind that a winning session is a +5% and a stop loss barrier at -3% These categorie ofdealers stil keeps me in profit overal
Category A: its one dealer who barely makes me lose a session. When this dealer is present , it always should be my first choice. I have a win rate of session that's always between 80 to 85%
This happens constantly so, just calling it luck would be easy. At first glance, the difference in results from one dealer to another seems to great.
So instead of just keeping track of lost and won sessions, I have decided to note down every session with my Category A dealer, and see if we could get interesting info out of it. If there is any, This could be interesting for everyone.
Oh and the betting itself is centered around sleeping dozens, which is quite similar to palestis.
You can choice every Ec's too if you want , or going for streets, columns, sections of the wheel (voisin, tier, orphelin) or make a combination of several.
But maybe with this little investigation you could come with a costume made betting selection based on a specific dealer you are playing.
You could easily call this 'My favorite dealer betting selection'
