When to kick a method to the side, not play it anymore?
« on: July 13, 2010, 02:26:06 AM »
WHEN is the time to STOP playing a method? Regardless of the TYPE. If you say 'when it loses more than it wins', thats fine but over what period of time? What if your method does great in testing but you lose on the FIRST try at the casino? Kick it to the side after the FIRST try? WHEN WHEN WHEN do you say ENOUGH with this method, time to TRY a different one? Ken

Great question from 2010. Mr j must have been the only member at that time...lol

This is a good question for electronic roulette players because I have observed that practise mode shows positive results but as soon as real money games are tried , the losses begin.

As a live B/M table player I would be prepared to loose two sessions a day for five days straight before I shelve the method. If I have to continuously use another method to recoup losses of the method in question then I will stop using it. I will evaluate all losses to get an understanding or reason for the failure.

Always have backup.

Are you speaking about slot game called roulette that relay on PRNG to determine result?
  In this case it's not about the method but if it's playing egainst your bets. If such is verified  ( should be before playing any serious bets) you should stop.
   It's one of these cases where common logic should be used.... if it's too jucy to be truth, then it probably isn't.
   There are methods to determine if something worth attention is there, how significant, stable, likely to be produced due to chance alone.... it's a part of the home work that any player wanna be should do.
