I posted this theory about a year ago, I apologize that I can't find it.

My system is called When To Quit.

What I posted last year was this--

I start each evening by putting down a $100 even money bet on craps or roulette--If I win, I gamble, if I don't, I don't

If I win I go to the blackjack table

I play simple strategy of course

I start with $25 bets

If I win I increase my bets rapidly to $100, $300, $500, $1000

I had the opportunity to go to Taos, New Mexico. While I was there I went to Buffalo Thunder. First night, I put down $100 on an even money roulette bet and I lost. I was done for the night.

Second night I won. I went to the blackjack table and I was quickly into house money. I had a soft 13, dealer showed 6. My bet was $50, I doubled it. Dealer beat me. I should have won that bet so obviously my odds for winning the rest of the night were light. I quit.

I went to the cashier. I was down $10. I went home. While I was undressing I found a $100 chip in my shirt. It was my original bet on the roulette wheel. I was not down for the night, I was up $90.

I am sure that Buffalo Thunder was pissed when I walked out of the casino with their money.

You may need to wear a disguise the next time you play in any New Mexico casino !

So, are you saying that loss was an indicator of how lucky you were about to be? Nothing to do with the "odds of winning for the rest of the night".

"While I was undressing I found a $100 chip in my shirt."

This has probably happened to many of us, whether it be a shirt pocket, pants pocket, bag etc.. I wonder what the fair odds of this happening again should be ...

Sober: 100-1?
Intoxicated: 10-1?

I have found $5 chips before, usually one ended up in my wallet. Never a $100 chip. :-(

"I can tell you that putting a $100 bet on the roulette wheel is a charge...." (From GWAE's link)

Tell you what a charge is. Sit down in front of a $100 slot machine with a stack of Bennies. In about a minute you'll feel like either a king or a fool.

This might work if you are located near a casino, but it would not work for me, as I have to fly to Las Vegas or drive at least an hour and a half to get to a tribal casino.

The notion of traveling that distance, making one bet and wrapping it up for the day on a loss does not compute for me.

Mathematically your notion of one big bet is not unsound, but it isn't practical for those of us who travel a fair distance to get to a casino.

Sure, I could try your system, but I go to the casinos for action.

I don't know why you couldn't find the post you speak of. It was your very first post and was made on the day you joined the forum.

A couple of points if I may. It wasn't house money. If you were able to wager it, it was YOUR money. You walked out with your money and I don't think Buffalo Thunder or any casino is going to sweat 90 bucks.

I'll leave it to others to evaluate your "system" but, in the meantime, have you considered that your play is just one long lifetime session?

I would never do that. Maybe START with that whole system, then just go gamble some more regardless of the outcome...lol.

If the ''100 and done'' is what you inisist on doing, you should go to a craps table and put as much as possible on the odds. You roll.

Lay $666 on the crapless EVIL EYES. Works 6 out of 7 times to win $111. And most of the time the extra $11 will cover the $6 vig and $5 tip.

Can you please tell me which wager on a craps layout is an even money bet? I assume you might be trying to say an even money payout, like red/black, but you do know don't you that there are two green spots that cause the house to have a pretty fair advantage on either one of those? You'd be better off starting off on craps or Blackjack.

There are three crapless tables in Vegas.

(1) Stratosphere -- generally operated all the time - $10 minimum 10x odds -- all vigs up front
(2) The Plaza (downtown) -- generally operated friday night and weekend - $5 minimum 5x odds - vig on the win for buy bets, and up front for lays
(3) Las Vegas Club (downtown) -- not operated frequently. $3 - $5 minimum. Double odds IIRC -- buy bets are vig on the win -- lays are vig up front

You can read up on crapless, but you need to find a crapless table to book a lay on a 2, 3, 11, or 12.

Even money bets (payouts) on the Crap table are, Pass, Don't Pass, Come, Don't Come. The Field bet will also pay even money on 3, 4, 9, 10, 11. Some casinos pay 2 for 1 on the 2 or 12.

The Big 6 or 8 pays even money also.
