Hi Doc ,
You suggestions are fine, and could help shortening the games. I agree that you probably don't need a huge bankroll for almost any session then, but encountering a very long session (and thus a large bankroll) will be met on a bad day for sure.
Also interesting is the differential betting principle to combine with as proposed lately in the Johnson thread and playing 3 even chances at the same time, so you can transfer larger losing bets to an "empty" labby, to keep the bets even lower and lessen the ecards, but this also makes the recording a lot more complicated and one will need a lot of concentration.
For me, I do not chart tables anymore, because I know I have the answer to every permanence of all Hamburg years, all tables, every day.
I started playing 2 and a half weeks ago for real , starting with 2 Euro chips (mechanical roulette table) with a Bankroll of 2000 units (4000 Euro). Target for every day 2 times 15 units (2 sessions). I play 3 day's/week. After playing the first week I won 3 times 30 u= 90 u (180 Euro). Second week I increased my unit to 3 Euro. I did win that week 3 times 30= 90 u (270 Euro). This week I play with 6 Euro units. Played 2 days, 2 times 30 u= 60 units (360 Euro). Total now 810 Eur. Tomorrow I will play last 2 games with 6 Euro chips (exactly 12 times 0.50 Euro chips)and then next week I will start with 3 sessions of 10 Euro chips on a table with a live dealer.
I like to build up my bankroll, not only to avoid losing (although I am confident a permanence for this is needed which such horrible runs, not found on Hamburg tables so far), but also at the mechanical roulette table I don't get attention from the pit bosses , I like being unnoticed as long as possible.
I keep my sessions short with 15 unit goal per game, to lessen the influence of the zero (on the mechanical roulette there is no "en prison rule") and also to lower the probability of encountering a bad streak.
One day, I needed 126 spins to end the first game and 121 spins to end the second (largest bet needed 52 units) playing for more then 6 hours, so the sessions are not always that short unfortunately. The best day did end the 2 sessions after 2hours and 15 minutes, including a short break between the sessions.
When everything is going according to schedule then I will have after 10 weeks playing a win of 24.000 Euro. That is my target for the moment.
Higher then 40 Euro/unit is not advisable for me because then I danger reaching table limits on a very bad day.
