I finally did a page and video on the Martingale.


Direct: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXPBuf0TNyo&feature=youtu.be.

I welcome all comments.

So far I've done this, the Fibonacci, Labouchere, Oscar's Grind, and Paroli. Any other requests?

I know this audience is too smart to pay for a betting system, but if anyone does have one, I'd be happy to take a look at it and debunk as it's not too complicated.

The question for the poll is what do you think of the video?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

You might consider doing a video on the 1-3-2-6 system.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Hmmm. Never heard of it until now. Here is a page on it. Is there any particular reason for this sequence?

You risk a one unit loss the first two wagers, lock up profit if losing on the third, break even if losing the fourth and a decent amount of winning the fourth.

The idea is to risk only 1 unit per round while pressing with your winnings.

In the first round you risk 1 bankroll (b) unit. If you lose, start over. If you win, you have 1 b-unit on the table and 1 winnings (w) unit on the table to which you add another b-unit thus risking 3 units in round two.

If you lose round two, you lose 2 b-units but, this is acceptable since it averages out to losing one unit per round. Start over. If you win the second round, you have two b-units and four w-units on the table. Remove two b and two w units and risk the remaining two w-units in round three.

If you lose round three, you're ahead two units over three rounds. Yahoo! Start over. If you win round three, you have four w-units on the table. Add the two w-units you placed in your stack last round, then press the six w-units for round four.

If you lose round four, you've broken even. Of well. Start again. If you win, however, you've won twelve units in four rounds. Whoo Hoo! Bank the money or throw down a w (now a b) unit and start the sequence again.

Obviously you're looking for streaks, and the first two rounds are critical but, there is a method to the madness.

Excellent video.

After turning 21 and getting into casinos I "discovered" the Martingale and thought I was a genius.

I legitimately thought that I had found a winning system and was afraid to tell others because of it getting out (in retrospect, I don't even know why that would be a rational fear).
This was short lived, I had a Stats professor around the same time who did a lecture on the Martingale one class and I felt like a fool (and not long later discovered WOO and other resources which quickly confirmed this). I think the simplicity in this system is why it is so enticing, and I imagine I am not the only one to "discover" it while experimenting with gambling.

The only "system" I occasionally use now (with full knowledge that it does not change anything) is basically the opposite (I don't know if it has a term) of martingale. But, I bet on some even money game whatever the the bet is (say 50), if I win, I bet 100, if I win again, I bet 200, win again 400... etc until I hit some randomly assigned goal like 8-10X the original bet (or lose) then I reset and start from the minimum bet. This gives the internal illusion of winning substantially more (if you get several wins in a row) while never risking more of your own money than whatever your basic betting unit is per sequence, and its usually fun to have winning streaks (and this amplifies that feeling). If you are playing recreationally (not planning on winning, but it a pus), and responsibly (expect to lose whatever you bring, etc....) you may as well play in a way that is the most fun, and this is the one system that gives an excitement boost, especially if you have several wins in a row, at least I tend to enjoy it on even money bets.

I forgot about this thread from ChumpChange (posted right when 2020 began to break bad).

Note the tweak to a 1-3-2-4.

I would be interested in the history of it.

Also would be interested in a similar method on video poker. Start by betting 1. If up, cash out and start over. If down, bet equal to all losses, or the smallest you can bet that is equal to or greater than total losses, up to 500, done on a 100 line machine.
