First post here. Just found this forum.
I am hoping someone can give me a logical suggestion for this. If I'm using a Labouchere for sports betting and I have one loss so far, but I have 3 games I want to bet this weekend. How do I manage my units on the bets since I am supposed to bet the next game at 1.5 units and the bets after that would be at 1. But they all go off at the same time. I really want to keep the Labouchere line consistent with the way it is used, and I really don't want to be choosing which game get the extra half a unit, because I feel like I am the Grim Reaper when it comes to choosing games that are worth more than the next. Do I just add the half unit to the first game on the board, or is there a consistent way that the Labouchere line is supposed to be played?
Here is the Labouchere line so far. I have 2 wins and 1 loss. And now I have 3 games to bet at the same time. How do I manage the units per game???
X - X - .5 - .5 - .5 - .5 - .5 - .5 - X - X - 1
My next bet should be 1.5, but since I have 3 games to play, what is the correct way to manage the bet amounts???
My simple answer would be the "L" system is not made for multiple simultaneous bets, only for sequential bets.
Makes sense that you say it's not meant to be used to sequential betting. I'm using it only because I've used it before with other bets. No specific reasoning, just thought I'd try it out. I didn't know if there was a way it was supposed to be played if this situation came up. But you're right. Is there another progressive or negative progression system that could be used or something else that you would suggest that I can look in to?
Not sure if you know this or not, but just throwing it out there just in case -- the Labouchere system, like every other "money management system" won't make you win in the long haul.
Nevertheless, if this is something you still want to bet -- why not play with multiple progressions at the same time?
