So the worst betting system goes to double your bet regardless of win or lose. Play this on blackjack, you would let your original double down and your wins ride. My rationale is that this betting system results in less expensive winning streaks without a huge chance of profit and a long losing streak will wipe you out. A choppy streak will mostly net you a small loser. So what are you guys' opinions on this one? No one have to educate me on how betting systems won't change the expectation. I already know that.

Uh, it seems to be what I'll call "self-limiting."

If you double your bet after ever outcome, win or lose, then after a fairly short series of doubling the preceding bets you'll run into the house max bet ceiling.

The peril of the martingale.

lol. That's impressively bad. Maybe could be worse if you tripled or quadrupled on each bet, but yeah: Still impressive. Not for the faint of heart.

Why not just bet everything you have, every time?

Suppose you get a pair of 8s or an 11vs.2?

Theoretically the best betting system. 1 bet 100% bankroll

As if someone cares about getting a little better % while playing everything on one big bet.

That's another reason that betting everything you have should be a candidate for the worst betting system.

It was fun to watch a guy do just that. OK. Not his entire bankroll, but his entire buy-in.

He didn't prosper $:o)
