to popular belief, table maximums don't prevent Martingales
from working, nor, for that matter, any other progression
system. If you encounter a streak of sufficient length
to take you above the table maximum of the casino
you are playing, you can simply go to a casino with
a higher maximum. Binion's Horseshoe has stated publicly
that it will accept a bet of pretty much any size.
No-limit games can still be found in Monte Carlo,
and many casinos will go significantly higher than
the table maximum with a little negotiation, especially
once they have established that you are using a Martingale
system. You can get a friend or friends to bet your
money for you on another spot, which is a cunning
way of betting above the table maximums without changing
the odds. Of course, if your losing streak becomes
sufficiently long that you have to start betting in
the trillions, no one will accept your bet, as the
amount of money in the world is limited.
It's not necessary to go to such extremes, though.
If a syndicate could form with a capital of $6 billion,
they could send out a player to use the Martingale
system at Online Baccarat Games, preferably betting
on the bank on every hand, and be reasonably sure
that the syndicate would never even come close to
losing its total capital during the natural life span
of its members (be thankful I'm not inflicting the
math on you here). The return on investment, though,
would be absolutely paltry in percentage terms, and,
in fact, the syndicate would lose money, as its winnings
would be more than outstripped by inflation.
Consider, also, that there is no such thing as a limit
to a streak. It's not impossible for the player or
bank hand to win ten thousand hands in a row. It's
fantastically unlikely, and will probably never occur
during the life of the human race, but it is possible.
draws are pot draws, and your basic strategy will
be to check/call, as long as your odds justify it,
until your hand gets made. You may also find yourself
with a betting draw once in a while, which makes it
correct for you to bet and raise on the come. The
most common draws after the flop are
? Flush draw: This will happen most frequently when
you call before the flop with suited cards, such as
A 1l T r , and the flop is something like K 1l8 •
21l . You would have a nut Rush draw in this example,
since you would make the highest possible flush with
your ace if 'a heart came on the turn or river.
