##### Trial and error, Parlay and convexity
« on: November 11, 2017, 03:08:37 AM »

Very interesting lecture by Taleb.
It seems to me that the Parlay method is a convex method. If I translate what he says to roulette, he prefers many small losses and a exponential win than many stable wins and great loss.

Also the part about trial and error and how the world goes forward, fits very well with how I created the Kavouras system. I didn't sit down one day and devised a great system. Experience, observation and continuous fine-tuning just started to produce good results. And THEN I called it a system. at first it was just me trying and fine tuning ideas, based on observation (and personal preference).

So more like a small amount of straight up numbers instead of an EC?
