Blue Angel,

The law of the third has nothing to do with a biased wheel. Furthermore, it's not reall of any value. I suppose you could use it as a crude way to measure wheel fitness, but the chi square test is more efficient.

Scepticus,

Wheel bias does not require a tilt or an off level wheel. Some extremely biased wheels can be quite level.

A bias wheel is usually defect spotted, before any numbers are tracked, by a trained AP and/or someone with experience in wheel assembly, maintenance, etc. Simply writing a lot of numbers can work, but it's terribly ineffcient.

In vb, a different type of AP play, a persistent drop helps. By the way, I've noticed that you donâ€™t understand the difference between the two types of roulette AP play and often confuse the two.

I noticed your comment about mathematicians and Thorp. He was by no means the first vb player. He was merely published. There's history of vb players aka "wheel watchers", going back into the very early 1900s. (Yes, way back before computers.

Just curious...do you know how many of us either minored in math or are actual mathematicians, engineers, and or computer scientists on the rouletteplace AP forum? (Fyi..I don't consider myself to be a mathematician.)
