I totally love Baccarat, it's my favorite casino game. Having studied yoga and meditation for many years, as well as Eastern Philosophy in general, I like to approach any game heavy on chance from an intuitive, spiritual perspective. I do pay attention to patterns and what "feels" right when placing a bet. I don't have a concrete strategy, but I'm working on one. I've heard many say Baccarat is pure luck, flipping a coin, but I don't see it quite that way, I believe (or like to believe) that there is more depth to the game. I'm not mathematically inclinced so I don't go deep into the mathematics of the game. I'm still up since I began playing Baccarat a few months ago. I've been playing more and more frequently and even though I will lose every now and then during a session, I have always been up before leaving the casino, sometimes just barely, but still a winner! I realize I will eventually come home with a loss, but that's okay because I know it won't happen frequently. How do I know? Well, I believe the attitude you bring to the game makes a difference. I don't intend to lose and I visualize winning. Here's a quote from a lovely little book that I think matches my gambling approach: A fledgling leaps because it trusts its wings. A lemming leaps because everybody else is doing it. One is an adventure into new dimensions. The other is suicide. A couple of knowledgeable gamblers have told me to 'please be more realistic'. I understand they're trying to keep me from ruin, and that's sweet, so I will make sure I only gamble with what I can afford to lose, etc, but I think being completely "realistic" suppresses my deepest knowing, so I choose not to be too "realistic" (doing it responsibly of course). I could go on ... I'm not trying to teach anyone here, but I am interested in what your approach to Baccarat is. Do you use a specific strategy? Do you just guess? What is your approach to this awesome game?
