Sometimes a little word or a minor difference can totally change the way to approach things.
As we know a progression is when someone adds or removes chips on their bets.
Lately I read a very interesting concept that can be used to approach progressions.
First I will describe a system. The new progression approach can be used on a variety of systems but it will be helpful to have a specific system as a reference.
The system is:We always use only 1 chip.
We start by betting Low.
If we lose we bet on the first dozen.
If we lose 2 more spins we bet on the 7-12 lane (doublestreet)
If we lose 2 more times we bet on the 10-12 street.
If we lose 5 more times we bet on 10-11 split.
If we lose 5 more times we bet on 11 for the next 17 spins.
If we win any of these bets we are even or we get some profit.This is the system and it is a good system on its own right
In my opinion this is the perfect newbie system. Much much better than the Martingale
Now let's see how to think about progressions in reference to this system.
The idea is to: as you add chips on the bet you consider that each chip belongs to a different player and all players cooperate.
For example, let's say that you have a bankroll of 500 units.
- You divide these 500 units to 5 imaginative players and give each player 100 units.
- These 5 players work as a team.
- Each player can only bet 1 chip per spin.
- But he can place this chip wherever he wants.
- If he wants high chance and low profit he would place it on High Low for example.
- If he wants high risk and high profit he can place it on a street for example.
- When a player wins, he takes only 1 unit profit and will give his extra units profit to another of the losing players.
This is all a mind game, but it really affects the way you bet, your progression.
There are various ways one can use this approach. Some are more aggressive and others more defensive. And you can use more than 5 "players". You can say that there are 10 "players" cooperating, which means your progression will never be higher than 10 chips. If you want I could go into more detail, but what is really interesting here are these 3 concepts:
- As you lose, you bet less numbers, so your win will cover your previous losses.
- We have X different players cooperating and sharing profit.
- Each player only bets one chip per spin.
What do you say?
