Series of "INTERMITTENZEN"?
« on: August 12, 2016, 08:19:03 AM »
Many years ago I read about "Intermittenzen" in German roulette books. According to these books "Intermittenzen series" in roulette
is like RED-BLACK-RED-BLACK.
What is it called in English roulette language?

I think "chop".  It is half of the EC:s. Opposite I use to call a run.

Thanks, Jesper. Whatever you call it, RED-BLACK-RED-BLACK is EXACTLY as likely as
                                                              RED-RED-RED-RED.
If we take both tendencies into account, we┬┤ll have  more possibilities of catching trends.

  Hi Dane,
             I have not bet outside numbers for a very long time. However when I did bet them I did so with different colour pens. So that any sequence, A streak or a chop could be seen at a glance.   

      It was my impression at that time that Chops were not as frequent as streaks. Nor did they seem to last as long.

    I swear to this, but I have personally experienced streaks of up to 20. Chops rarely seemed to go past 12 or 13 spins.

     Reyth, you could possibly confirm this with your computer trials.

      Harry

Yes I can confirm this with a specific trial.  My instinct is to agree though that chop will be the same as streaks.

Running tests...

Code: [Select]
10 RANDOMIZE TIMER: lh = -1
20 r = INT(RND * 37): LOCATE 1, 1: PRINT mchop
25 IF lh = -1 THEN 170 'process first spin
30 IF r = 0 THEN 80 'process zero
40 IF r < 18 THEN 120 'process low
50 'process high
60 IF lh = 1 THEN chop = chop + 1: lh = 2: GOTO 20
70 GOTO 140 'process end of chop

80 'process zero
90 IF lh = 0 THEN 140 'process end of chop, double zero
100 IF lh = 1 THEN lh = 2: chop = chop + 1: GOTO 20
110 lh = 1: chop = chop + 1: GOTO 20

120 'process low
130 IF lh = 2 THEN chop = chop + 1: lh = 1: GOTO 20

140 'process end of chop
150 IF mchop < chop THEN mchop = chop
160 chop = 0: GOTO 20

170 'process first spin
180 IF r = 0 THEN lh = 0: GOTO 20
190 IF r < 18 THEN lh = 1: GOTO 20200 lh = 2: GOTO 20

And yes chop duplicated the streaks expected max successive loss.  Chop is a form of "streak" that has the same statistical characteristic as successive results of a single color.

I would consider this good news in the sense that we can increase our triggers to include chop which simply means more betting opportunities.
