The Balancing Act
« on: March 20, 2017, 09:34:08 PM »



I have no idea why this does well. I was thinking about jekhb76's "very strange method" success and decided to place 4 corner bets on the board without having to add and subtract.

- place equal bets on the two corners of 8,9,11,12 and 11,12,14,15
- as well as the two corners of 22,23,25,26 and 25,26,28,29
- no progression
- just keep clicking spin  ;D

In the image above I started with a 1000 bankroll (test credits) and easily built it up to 2000. Ive tested this on two different sites and both are well up. So I decided to use real money...

Went from bankroll of 8000 and with 10u bets on each of the 4 corners, dropped down to 7000 and then progressed up to 8400 right now. Could a progression help? Or if it works with no progression, why mess it up.

Here is an interesting distant cousin that has been used with success using D'Alembert, +1 loss, -7 win.

What is nice about this bet is that you have 2 "orders" of win
The light win: 8,9,14,15,22,23,28,29
And the big win: 11,12,25,26
This is also an attribute of the Kav bet.
IMO having two types of wins gives the bet more flexibility when using a progression.

If you just won by just flat betting those numbers I'd say its pure luck.

Thanks Jake & Kav.

I do also think that it doesn't really matter what numbers you choose, at the end of the day it is all the same.
But the problem with these bet types is that if you don't use a good progression, you will loose very quick all your money. trust me, I know what I'm talking about.
Most don't think that a progression method is right, and it will burn every penny up, but i do think that with these kind of bets, it's best to use a light progression, and play short sessions (hit and run).
