Nice article by Frank Scoblete. The book he recommends is dated, but the principles still stand.

For a starting roulette player the paper is very interested. You are write the paper is dated. I do not agree with all the seven statements.

"but some ingenious players have invented methods for surviving those environments and coming out on topin those games"

This quote  bear out that there are methods to beat the roulette.My theory has learned me that only strategies have the feature to beat the roulette. The problem is that a strategy is not based on mathematical rules.

There are many flaws in his theory.
_He assumes (like every one else who doesn't believe in systems), that the doubling or the progression (  not all progressions involve doubling),  goes on for ever until you either win or run out of money or you hit the max limit.
Nobody addresses a situation where the progression has a limited span, guided by experience.
Not every situation involves ALL or NOTHING.
_The same following a trend or going against a trend. There are limits on betting on trends or against the trends. Again experience is the key.
_ He mentions betting on a single missing number. No serious system player bets indefinitely on  one missing number. Everybody knows that a single number can sleep from 10 spins to 500 spins. Betting on that number is stupid.

In other words this guy makes it look impossible to win with a system so he can sell his  book.
His arguments are no different than those who sell miracle color sprays on TV, that can fix minor scratches on cars. But when you buy it, you find out that you wasted not only your money but your hopes too.
No dealer can spin the ball with the same exact speed, or the wheel in the opposite direction.
Even a .0001 mph difference in speed can send the ball on a different diamond or no diamond at all.
Dealer signature is rather a coincidence. When we observe it, it's usually too late, or about to stop.
If you can take advantage of it while it last, then fine.

Palestis I agree with you. The paper is dated. Analysis with the computer learn us much more about the features of random sequences.These features make it possible to play the roulette as a game. Every game is beatable.

@Palestis

there is no flaws in frank scoblete article he just described how the lazy aristocrat played roulette

many years ago and some people still do today. As for he's roulette knowledge he does not know

much about roulette because the hard effort needed to win at roulette he dismiss any system or

strategy . I hope you understand

@ les,
Hi welcome to the forum. I think you will find that there are a number of us a strategy can ussually overcome even the worst random series the table can produce In my thread Harry's Johnson  I showed rhat it is possible to survive  a series of 50 losses in 52 spins.

@Harry

That would be a world record to lose 50 bets in 52 spins it can never happen even if you tried

if you tell that to any casino owner he would pay you a million dollar . I'll bet you good enough

not to loose more than 3 bets in arrow  anyway I do not play ev- chances I prefer pin point a

wining  number in 5 or less number

This remind me of the bias method Laurance Scott gave me.
Where there is a mathematical hypotes that can tell the difference from random fluctation and true bias numbers without any kind of defect spotting.

Now i am stuck with one local casino in my town, so is not worth it.

Cheers
