Try some new music!

Sure, you love country music, but is it really going to kill you to listen to some R&B? Or maybe you're all about hip-hop - who's to say you won't find a rock song you like just as well? I'm always so impressed when I hear someone list their favorite songs - and songs actually cover several genres. Or decades! (Yes, oldies are goodies.)

Next time you hear your fave song come on radio (you know, one you've heard over a million times), consider actually turning away from it. Head over to station you listen to LEAST - your new favorite song might be waiting for you. :)

Baccarat Strategies - A Dime a Dozen

Written by Ryan D

Continued from page 1

Casinos effectively got rid of threat of Martingale System gambler or player by setting Table maximums (and minimums). i.e. A player bets \$5 on banker and lost.  Next bet, \$10 on banker, next bet \$20, etc, and he continues to lose.  Before long, his bet will have doubled up to a point that it will exceed table maximum.  In this case player can't bet any higher and his system has failed, he must quit.

The Martingale System is a horrific betting system that follows a human beings panic thinking - their natural thought pattern that somehow believes that if a coin lands heads up 9x in a row, there is a greater chance than 50% that it will land tails on 10th flip! IT DOES NOT WORK!

So - if all these strategies and systems - card counting, pattern spotting, streak spotting etc are worthless strategies for baccarat - is there any good one? Well...practically and mathematically speaking... when you analyse numbers, odds do seem to always be in favour when a player bets on banker, though this is a very boring tactic to play.  Perhaps throw in some pattern chasing to break tedium, or count scorecards!
