I came upon this post: Imbalance/equilibrium
This post is about following the trend in some way.
But what I found interesting is that it also talks about betting zones. An issue about which Palaistis (and Harry) have talked many times.
It is interesting that while the first posts goes with the trend and Palaistis bets against the trend (see dozens system
) , both are only betting for a limited number of spins, in given conditions/triggers.
Now this how I would summarize the underlining concepts of these approaches.1) After research, observation and testing, we decide on a point of imbalance.
This can be any bet. Simple chances, dozens, splits...2)When this specific point is reached this is the trigger, our conditions. Then we start betting
According to our research we can start betting either that the imbalance will increase or that it will decrease.3) We bet, only when the conditions are met, for a limited number of spins and with a very light progression
I don't know, maybe the similarities are not obvious to everyone, but I found very interesting the way both systems stop betting either after 4 spins (Palaistis) or when the trend changes (Imbalance system).
It is some sort of hit and run strategy, but more sophisticated.
Furthermore, it is possible that many other systems can be modified with these ideas. You can take a strategy that applies a long progression and change it. You decide that you will stop the progression after 5 or 8 misses and start again when the conditions are met.
It is like a dance in a ballroom. You choose a partner that seems promising hoping this is the one. You touch her hand. When you feel she doesn't like you, in the next song you search for a different partner that seems promising and start over the flirt.
Long progression on the other hand is like spending all night flirting the same partner, trying to convince her to like you.
Sometimes changing partners will bring more success. Other times insistence pays off. It is all about your personal attitude and the type of partner you are looking for.
