Everyone MUST have a hard cover 3 ring binder Final Word manual.
Locals (US) I can mail to if desired.
Off shore and some locals may want to make their own binder up to save on shipping cost. I will tell you which size binder to get. These are plain but good quality HARD binders that can take some use and punishment. But nothing special. They are available at any store carrying school supplies like WalMart. I will also tell you how much 3 ring copy paper you will need. But everyone MUST end up with a hard cover manual one way or the other.
Here’s the deal on that: I want to keep the conversation and questions oriented to the manual. When you ask a question or make a comment, I want you to refer to the manual page # and paragraph #.
I have nothing against Ebooks but not everybody here is computer literate to the same degree, including me. At BTC, more than half the NOR members had no manual and nobody had an MDB+ manual. As a result, most of the questions were questions a complete up to date manual already would have distinctly answered and we kept getting the same questions over and over again. This literally destroyed that forum with repetition upon repetition – a thousand pages worth. Nobody could find anything. HERE, we will stay organized by always referring to the manual. Let’s learn from our mistakes.
If we find that a correction or addition to the manual is required, I will send you a corrected page number so you can keep your personal manual up to date.
Back in my BJ teaching days I made an audio tape about how to “case” a casino – what to look for and how to find it – how to find the best table and how to play it. Students would listen to this tape on their car stereo on the way to the casino. It was extremely popular. I’m thinking we should do the same thing here.
In my casino demonstration play sessions after seminars one student or another would invariably say: “Ellis. I talked to management and I’ve got you set up with your own table over here.
Guys, thanks BUT first, I don’t even want the casino to know I’m there. Second, I want to find my own table. It will ALWAYS be a game in progress where I already know from the tote board what’s going on. The LAST thing I want is my own new table. It is suicidal to play your first table in the blind. And YOU should be thinking the very same way. Always start with a table you already know how to beat. NEVER play in the blind.
That is still the most common mistake I see students make. They seem to think its some sort of race. They take the first empty seat they see. No, no, no. That is what everybody else does – and everybody else loses.
Be smart – study the situation – find the BEST table to play.
Keith recently said: “It’s all about Opposites and Repeats!”
No, no, no! That’s what everybody in the casino thinks. THAT’S why they lose.
The game is about events! What is happening more than normal and what is happening less. THAT is what determines which system you play and how you play it.
For instance: tote board # 17 here distinctly has high 2s and 3s with low 1’s and 4+s. What do you play??? THAT is how I want you to case a casino.
Or, look at tote board #18: Nothing is low and nothing is high! Fine, what do you play?
Don’t know? Fine. THAT is why you’re here. THAT is the MOST important thing you will learn here. How to read a tote board to know how best to beat THAT table. How to know which table to play and how to play it. THAT is what separates you from the herd. The herd loses. They lose because they don’t know what you are about to learn. Get it? It’s not about heroically playing any table. You will lose heroically. It is about finding the table you can beat the easiest and then quietly beating the hell out of it. No heroics – leave that to the herd.
Everything you will learn here boils down to ONE thing. Playing the right table the right way. You will find yourself going opposite the herd. GOOD! THEY LOSE!
It is a 50/50 game plus 1.25% commission. Yet less than 1% of players consistently beat this game. I’m teaching you how to be in that 1% – how to get out of the herd and win! It is not hard. But there are certain things YOU need to know that the herd has no clue of. First, get out of the herd. Second, learn how to win!
