Just came up with a fun Marty system that will let you play for hours on end with very little chance of getting wiped out...

1. $4,000 bankroll required
2. Flipping a coin determines your bet... player if heads and banker if tails
3. Don't risk any money until the coin makes 2 wrong predictions in a row
4. Use a $15-30-60-125-250-500-1000-2000 Marty and bet according to more coin flips

The only way you'll get wiped out is if your coin makes 10 wrong predictions in a row... the probability of that is roughly 1/1024.

This system will NOT overcome the house edge in the long run, but it should keep you entertained for a very long time before you get wiped out by a killer losing streak.

I've played about a dozen practice shoes and I'm averaging a little over $100 profit per shoe.

Maybe I'll have the guts to try this system in real life if it survives at least a hundred practice shoes... LOL

Th big problem I see here, is the risk vs reward is so limited. For instance, say you get to that 1000 bet. You total profit, comes out to $20. 7 hands, $1980 risked, and all to make $20? Just doesnt seem to make a whole lot of sense to me. I will agree that any win, no matter how small, is better than any loss, however it seems to me thats a long long way to go, to pick up $20

But the point is that you eventually will get wiped out. You'll get a bunch of small wins, but then when the inevitable big loss comes..........BAM! It will eat up your winnings and then some.

Please. Please drop step 3, it just makes you look stupid.

Otherwise, unless you're arguing you have an advantage and accept that over a billion trials you will lose. Cool, another Martingale.

Had a similar experience recently, copy and paste from another board;

Playing Bac with Bones and one young Oriental woman the other day. Pulled out my secret weapon: Delaware George. That's right, the quarter trick: Heads play Banker, Delaware play Player. Seven correct calls in a row. Eight out of nine. Bones went against the George several times. You know this charting thing said....Too bad, so sad. After the last of the nine tosses, a win, I colored up and gave the quarter to a very perplexed young woman.

I have no problem with Step 3, DrJohnny is clearly intelligent enough to understand, mathematically, that the coin doesn't have anything to do with anything, so perhaps he just thinks that is fun. Hell, given that Baccarat is a negative expectation game, that method will cause him to bet during less hands...and the less hands bet is always the better!

Besides, he'll look superstitious as all Hell, which to my understanding, means he'll fit in with other Baccarat players quite nicely!

I agree. Step 3 is the best part of the system, since it causes the player to bet 0 frequently and reduces the expected loss.

UPDATE:

I've been playing bacc for fun on the Wizard's main site and my coin has caused me to go bankrupt not once, but twice!
The coin that I was using is definitely cursed... LOL

I decided to ditch the coin and return to a more traditional 7 step Marty ($10-20-40-80-160-320-640) with random guessing every single hand and I have yet to get smashed after 10 shoes (I did get pushed to the 7th bet a few times but won all of them).

After 10 shoes, I managed to turn $4,000 into $7,800.

I managed to win 3471 units over 100 practice shoes using a 7 step Marty last year... If I can repeat this amazing feat again playing the Wizard's game, I'll definitely consider playing with $4K in the casino until I bust out...

Brilliant.....yet another system that will force casinos to change rules. May suggest a twist to your powerful system. If, during the flip, the coin is dropped, you must bet on tie.

If you really hate having a spare $4,000 that much, feel free just to ship it directly to me in the form of a money order, and I will put it to better use.
