Hello Kav,

I understand what you are saying. I wanted to build on what you and I were discussing about the Paroli strategy. I think I may have found a way to adapt the Paroli strategy to help make it more effective. What do you think about this concept. The concept here I provided is for even number bets. Eventually I will try to make it work with dozens.

Here it is:

The direct Progression on the ' Paroli 'System is almost as dangerous as the ordinary Martingale, and is

sure to bring the player to grief sooner or later. Using a modified Progression, we can obtain a sound

and reliable method. We will call it 'The Ladder System.' Our first step consists of the first six

stakes which we write down on our score-sheet horizontally as follows 111223. Now underneath each stake we will record the amount gained in the event of success. We commence by staking 1 unit and play for two consecutive wins. Every time we are successful we count the net profit on the transaction as a definite gain, and begin again with a

stake of i unit. Should we eventually lose the last stake of 3, we have made a loss of 1 + 1 + 1+2 + 2 + 3= 10 units. We then construct the Second Step of our Ladder, only instead of beginning with the stake opposite No. i' coup' we omit it, and begin with No. 2 'coup.' The Second Step of our Ladder then appears as follows 112234. Now continue playing in the same way as on Step No. 1, until either you have regained the 10 units lost or have succeeded in losing your last stake of 4 units. In the event of this happening you will have lost in addition to anything outstanding on the prevous 10 units 1 + 1+2 + 2 + 3 + 4=13 units. In order to get back these we construct a Third Step to our Ladder, beginning with the 3rd' coup'. It will appear on our score-sheet as follows 1 2 2 3 4 5 . If we fail to get back all our losses with this step, we shall have lost in addition to anything outstanding 1 + 2 + 2+3+4 + 5=17 units. Each step of our Ladder is entirely independent of the preceding one, and it will be noticed that the higher we get, the more equal the gains become. Continue on each successive step until all previous losses are wiped out, then recommence

entirely with the First Step. The above system, if strictly adhered to, can be safely recommended to a player with plenty of patience and capital at his disposal. It may be necessary to employ a 5th, 6th, and 7th Step, etc., but after a little study of the figures given above, it will be an easy matter to construct

them.

So what do you think of this twist of the Paroli?
