His fake press reports are a pretty big red flag as well.
There's nothing about the system that would enable it to work in the long run. I don't know of a single mathematician, especially a PHD mathematician, that would tout an up as you lose progression, and bet's that are "due to hit" because they haven't hit in a long time as a way to beat roulette in the long run. Just because a group of number hasn't hit in the long run does not make them more likely to hit in the future. This is basic probability 101. Something that a mathematician should know. When someone attempted to promote the book on the wizardofvegas forum the members had some good laughs.
If a player was playing Martin's system on even a weak biased wheel, then the player could easily find themselves betting on the negatively biased numbers, and gradually increasing their stakes on such numbers. Such a system is probably one of the more efficient ways there is to actually lose at a rate that could possibly exceed the house edge! In other words, it's not just a bad system, it's a really bad system!
Nobody, and I do mean nobody, is or has been making a living by playing such an absurd up as you lose system.
Real, you seem to have an ongoing problem with the work of Dr Martin Blakey who by the way passed away in Melbourne three weeks ago after a remarkable 43 years career as a full time professional roulette player.
Here are a few facts
to restore some balance to counter your viewpoint. The life work of Dr Blakey has made a strong positive impact on many roulette players in that he was able to sustain his family and meet all his life responsibilities through income generated by net profit through roulette for over 40 years
- you would agree this is a mighty achievement. Crown Casino in Melbourne enjoyed the patronage of Dr Blakey in its Private Members Room on a nearly daily basis, five or six days per week whenever he was not travelling in Australia or worldwide. He played in Casinos in London, in Europe, but mainly his adopted home city of Melbourne.
This weekend the Crown Casino, Melbourne will be hosting a Memorial Function to celebrate the life work of Dr Blakey. This is indeed a very rare achievement.
You refer to 'fake press reports' - would you care to elaborate. All reports observed by myself and colleagues are actual, as also the television reportage and interview.
The book that Dr Blakey produced over 25 years ago and which discussed a winning strategy, ran three editions and was self published without an independent Editor. In its most recent edition there are references to several sets of 16 numbers being able to be identified and there is discussion that in observing a sleeper set, then in due course that set of 16 numbers can be attacked, more often than not, with success. The bet strategy is ingenious in that 16 targets is a key tipping point in bet efficiency and particularly so when four corner bets are utilsed as an efficient means to attack.
Through constant refining and development of this particular strategy Dr Blakey was able to achieve net gains by limiting his bank exposure, by timing his sessions within most effective constraints, and learning to accept appropriate profits when offered, and accepting loss when necessary, so as to mitigate damage. At other times gains could be accentuated through cool headed judgment.
Fellow players at the table have noted to me that Dr Blakey always was disciplined, patient, and smart.
I have seen analysis of his weekly play schedules and he kept meticulous records of every session played over 40 years. In recent years he played with an assistant at the table to keep the pressures simpler, and in fact as he described it to me, the game became 'more a social event'. He was in control at all times.
Your superficial critique of Dr Blakey's methodology illustrates how little you understand of valid techniques in live play where sleeping groups can become valid targets, once the trigger criteria for commencement of an attack are known. Other roulette experts have noted sleeper dozens for example as a very valid focus for successful play in short cycles.
Regarding his book Dr Blakey concedes that there were passages unclear and there were errors that a good Editor would have corrected. He did make efforts in recent times to correct those errors and his website roulettemastered.com does have access to some detail and technique not earlier published.
But also Dr Blakey was a professional and certainly kept some techniques private. He delighted to demonstrate that winning at roulette was achievable and his own life and weekly experience demonstrated that.
Dr Blakey was a gentleman, always of good cheer, confident and non reactionary to criticism, as he knew and lived his abilities in a manner which was energetic, positive, and fun. He was very proud of the achievements of his family also, and particularly his son Scott who earned a first class science degree which has led to an outstanding career and all the Blakey children were home schooled.
Dr Blakey had a wonderful life and is a great example for professional roulette.
