Ahcoln's Super Recoup System

Hello everyone,

This is a very special newsletter. It will provide you with the full explanation of Ahcoln's Super Recoup system.

Ahcoln won the second place after my FRS in the GG roulette contest with his New Recoup system. Super Recoup is even a more enhanced system.

Ahcoln's Super Recoup is a sophisticated system. So, you can really make the most out of it.

Super Recoup is the kind of system, which lets you control your losses, bets flat during normal circumstances and escalates your winnings during a winning streak. So, it's an ideal system.

It bets on even bets, so you can use it for all even bets in Roulette, Craps and Baccarat.

The bet selection can be the player's choice. If you have a good bet selection, go ahead and use it. The one Ahcoln has chosen and the one, which will be given in this newsletter is simply follow the last decision. In Roulette, that would mean to bet Red if the last decision was Red and to bet Black if the last decision was Black. On a Green zero, you skip the next bet. The examples that will be given here will also be for Roulette for bets placed on Odd and Even.

The Super Recoup uses three betting stages.

- The "N"ormal stage

- The "R"ecoup stage

- The "P"arlay stage

The "N"ormal stage bets 1 unit flat on each decision.

The "R"ecoup stage tries to recover losses and bets the contents of the negative bankroll of various banks the system uses. If say the balance of a bank is -7 units, one will bet 7 units when one reaches the R stage.

If the bet is won, the negative balance of that bank is cleared and one is back to the "N"ormal stage. If the bet is lost, one freezes that balance in that bank and opens a new bank with that negative balance to be cleared at a later stage.

This technique avoids the betting of large amounts and also the reaching of the maximum bet limits.

We will elaborate on the use of various banks a bit later.

During the "P"arlay stage bets are increased during a winning streak, that is during consecutive wins.

During the "P" stage bets are increased according to the Fibonacci sequence: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21, etc., where your next bet is the sum of the previous two.

Do not get confused on the term Parlay, which usually means to let the bet ride on a win. It simply bets according to the numbers in the Fibonacci series, as per Ahcoln's terminology.

Since you are in "P"arlay stage after 2 consecutive wins in the "N"ormal stage, you start betting 2 units, then 3, 5, 8, as you keep winning, until your first loss. When you finally lose your bet, that loss eliminates the profits of the last 2 wins. However, if you have been winning a few bets consecutively, you will be able to store some profits (up until your last win minus the last 2 wins) into the profit bank (PB).

It's important to know when to switch between those stages.

Obviously we start betting in the "N"ormal stage, placing 1 unit flat on each spin.

2 consecutive wins will trigger either a "R"ecoup or a "P"arlay stage.

If you have no debts to the banks you're using, then 2 wins will trigger a "P"arlay. If you owe money to at least one of the banks, then 2 wins will trigger a "R"ecoup stage.

Now, it's a good time to talk about those banks. You will have one profit bank and a few recovery or recoup banks. Should you make profits up front, all your profits go to the profit bank and they are stored there.

For example, you start with the "N"ormal stage and bet 1 unit. If you win that bet you store your profit in the profit bank. Then you reset. Should you lose your second bet, your loss goes to the first recoup bank (RB_0). If you lose another bet, now you owe two units to the first recoup bank. Now your subsequent wins and losses are taken from the first recoup bank until you no longer owe that bank.

So if your balance is say -3 units in the RB_0 or recoup bank 0 (the first recoup bank), your next win of 1 unit in the "N"ormal stage is deducted from RB_0, brining your balance to -2 units.

As you keep betting in the "N"ormal stage with flat bets of 1 unit, you update your bank balance in the first recoup bank, should your balance be negative. Should your balance become positive, then you store your wins in the profit bank, since you would owe nothing to the recoup bank.

Now, if you have 2 wins in a row, and you owe some money to the recoup bank, this triggers a "R"ecoup stage, during which you bet all you owe in the first recoup bank. So if your balance is -4 units in the RB_0 (recoup bank 0), you bet 4 units to clear that debt. If you win that bet, you owe nothing to the first recoup bank . Then you're back to betting 1 unit flat in the "N"ormal stage. After that if you win twice in a row again, you are in the "P"arlay stage.

If you lose that 4 unit bet, you freeze the -4 units in the first recoup bank and open a new balance in a new recoup bank (we'll call it RB_1) and transfer those lost 4 units into that bank.

Your subsequent bets in the "N"ormal stage will now update the balance of RB_1.

If you have 2 wins in a row again, you're in "R"ecoup stage and you bet the entire balance of RB_1. If you win that bet, you are still in "R"ecoup stage and this time you bet the entire balance of RB_0. So debts in the recoup banks are cleared one at a time by consecutive wins.

Now, let's take some more complex stages, where there is a special recoup bank management method. If you have several recoup banks open, with balances of say -4, -5, -3, -6, you can eliminate one of the recoup banks by using the so called "add-2, adjust-1" method. You simply add the balances of those 4 banks: -4-5-3-6 = -18 and divide it by 3 = -6. So now you have 3 recoup banks instead of 4 with a balance of -6 on each.

2-adjust-1 is used when there are 2,4,6,8 or 10 recoup banks (multiples of 2 or even number of recoup banks) in debt. If there is only one bank, there is no adjustment, you just add 1 bank on a loss. If the current number of recoup banks is 2, you adjust before you add to 3 banks.

1 bank, add

2 banks, adjust

2 banks, add

3 banks, adjust

3 banks, add

If you cancel a bank, reduce from 4-3, next you will add a bank if lose on "R" due current bank=3.

if you cancel a bank, reduce from 3-2, next you will adjust a bank if lose on "R" due to current bank=2.

All the above will be soon very clear when we illustrate all rules with a detailed example.

Just to summarize the rules before that:

The bet selection is follow the last decision. On a zero you skip the next bet.

Your profits go to the profit bank (PB).

Your losses go to the recoup bank(s), RB_0, RB_1, etc.

A new recoup bank is opened only if one loses in the "R"ecoup stage.

If your debt is clear to the recoup banks, 2 consecutive wins trigger a parlay, where you bet according to Fibonacci series.

If there are debts to the recoup banks, then 2 consecutive wins trigger the "R"ecoup stage, where you bet the entire balance of the most recent recoup bank opened. If the recoup wins, you apply another recoup if there are still debts in the recoup banks, betting from the last towards the first recoup bank. If not you reset to normal stage betting one unit.

Total number of spins 244

Total bets 584

Maximum recoup bet: 24

Maximum parlay bet: 8

Most -ve: -128

Ttotal winning sessions: 12

Total units in RB -4

Final net win: 8 units

Edge: 1.37%

The above was the way Ahcoln has played his Super Recoup. You are free to set your own rules when it comes to switching stages between "N", "R", and "P". You might trigger a parlay after 3 or 4 wins for instance. You may want to use a different progression than Fibonacci. You may simply let your chips ride after 4 wins and remove 1 chip for your profit bank. Or you may want to use a March progression after a few number of wins, where you bet 1 unit more every time you win.

Quoting from Ahcoln's explanation: "Switching states is the most important part and most original idea of this system. You will need to decide the condition on when to switch between the states of “N” to “R” or “P”. For example, in blackjack, you’ll play “N” until reaching the state where the shoe is rich with 10’s and Aces, here you will switch to “R” state to recoup all your losses, and when all Recoup banks are cancelled, you’ll switch to “P”."

I hope you liked Ahcoln's Super Recoup.
