Since coming back to baccarat, I’ve been experimenting with some old strategies. Mostly I use Avant Dernier, but only enough times to get ahead, then I quit (I haven’t played an entire shoe with it).
What I think is interesting (in addition to having a system to pick my bet choice), is that it also protects me somewhat from myself. For example, yesterday I bet on Banker because that was what Avant Dernier said to do. It came up Player and I lost. Now I didn’t want to bet on Player since there were already two showing and I instinctively don’t like betting on three in a row, but if I was going to stay true with the system, that was the next bet. So I bet Player and surprise, surprise — it won, getting me back to even.
