How to play using low risk of losing much?
« on: February 10, 2017, 09:29:53 AM »
I did some play using 10 units bank (10 Euro).  Start with 1 Euro and stay on win, decrease with 0.1 every time we have a loss, until the bet size is zero. It is a fix amount we can lose.

We have to have a winning streak to get winning more than losing.

It can help when playing the D'Alembert to start with a higher than minimum stake, say 10 units. With a standard D'Alembert the problem is that if you start with a stake of 1u and hit a winning streak, the wins are "wasted" because you can't reduce the stake any further and thus "lock in" the wins. But the downside of starting with a higher stake is when you hit a losing run at the start...

You just need a bigger bankroll.  Unfortunately, I don't know how to calculate the additional bankroll to compensate for the higher chip count at the beginning.

This is a statement from the 19th century. It is mention in the Monte Carlo Anecdotes from 1905.

The thing with staying instead of increasing, and reducing on a loss, limit the losses and is different from D'alembert.

On a losing round, just try again.

A loss of 14 units first round.
Second round recover using the
same method starting at 10.
