In Edward Thorp's classic "Beat the Dealer" he recommends the martingale but not as a winning system but to impress a hot babe

tell her you've got a sure winner and do a 5 step marty (if necessary) on Player at baccarat and you are very likely to win a hand in one of the steps and if she's not an experienced, knowledgeable gambler she might be impressed

then you can show her your etchings in your room

Not directed at the situation or anyone in particular such as d'Alembert. I have seen some seemingly smart people become real stupid, especially when it comes to gambling and other things involving money.
You know, riding buses, scavenging through leftover food, horrible Investments, day trading, bad money management, roulette and Baccarat systems, thinking dice control actually works and the list goes on and on and on and on.

All of those betting systems work in theory, but casinos have maximum limits and people have maximum bankrolls. That's what's keeping them from working in the real world.

Adapting the DíAlembert to blackjack is almost impossible. Craps works on the line and in combinations of bets that equal the odds of a seven. Even a buy combo on crapless!

It happened to me as a young man. Since then I have become much more defiant. Or is it skeptical?

If you want a long time at the tables with minimal risk, then flat bet.

What if you want a long time but do not care about risk? Is it still the best advice?

I would still stand behind flat betting.

Let's say you have 10 units and want it to last as long as possible before going bust. Your best choice is to flat bet.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I gamble because it's fun. I don't care about profit.

Not me. Gambling without winning
is totally boring.
