Please let me reiterate my gambling system. I call my system this: When to quit.
Essentially, if you win, you double and triple your bets. If you lose, you quit.
Notice this means that most of the time, you quit. In my experience, I get to gamble about once every twenty times I put down a bet. I have used this system for about the last 25 years. I have won and lost and I am about even. I never gamble when I am losing.
Here is the extreme version of my system. Let's say that my stake for the night is $100. So I take a $100 chip and I put it on an even money bet on the roulette wheel, red black, even odd. Lol, trust me, this is a fun bet. Just try it. If you win, everyone wants to know how you did it. Trust me, this bet is a blast. It is simple, bro. I am winning tonight.
Honestly, if you can't win an even money bet on the roulette wheel, you should not be gambling. So I bet my stake and lose. I am done for the night. Or I win and double my stake. So I go to the blackjack table. Just saying, with my system, when to quit, you gamble when you win, you quit when you lose. This is a very good thing to do.
Notice that the casino has no problem with my betting strategy. Anybody can do this. Win, double down and double down again. Lose and quit. Very simple. I do not claim that my system will win you a million. However, if you do it my way, you will not lose everything like an idiot. Because you quit when you lose. Get it?
Let me try it again: Luck runs. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Your betting strategy should be to maximize your winnings when you are winning, and to minimize your losses when you are loosing.
It is easy to maximize your losses. You just stop gambling when you are loosing.
Winning is much different. If you get action at a table, the dealers will immediately change themselves in an attempt to shake your winning streak.
This is a hard and fast rule: never play the other gambler's game. If they change dealers, then you change tables. It probably will work, that changing dealers will blow your streak. Nevertheless, don't play their game. At least try to do something different.
Forgive me brothers and sisters, you do not comprehend what I am saying.
Let me try it again: Luck runs.
I think we get it.
Moving thread to the betting systems section.
. I have used this system for about the last 25 years. I have won and lost and I am about even.
This made me laugh. The first time I heard this response it was my grandfather, when I went to the horse races with him at age 11 or 12. He hit something fairly big that day, I forget what, might have been a daily double because he liked betting those. When I say fairly big, maybe a couple hundred dollars. That seemed big to me at age 11.
So, naturally, I thought he was a genius. Since he went to the race track at least 5 times a week, I asked if he was ahead or behind for his lifetime, He replied "about even". So when we got home, I asked my Grandmother. I said Pop says he is about even for his life, is that true? First time I ever heard her curse as she said Hell no!
So here is the moral of the story. Every losing gambler/player HAS to say they are about even. If they don't and admit hat they have lost more than they won, the next question is 'why do you keep going or keep betting?'. And no losing player can or wants to answer that (or even think about it). So the answer is ALWAYS "about even.".
'. And no losing player can or wants to answer that (or even think about it). So the answer is ALWAYS "about even.".
Definition of "about even."

Care to locate that quote for me MDawg? Maybe your buddy from that other place will go straight to it for you.Quote: MDawg
What about when someone says "about ahead" (or maybe he says "ahead overall" - anyway something like that) I believe OnceDear claims something along those lines with regards to one of the casino games he plays.
Anyway.... A minor update. YTD, Total buy-ins about £120k. Total loss about £9k No advantage plays since about March.
I had early success turning £100 into £6,000 on day 1 and ebbing that back and forth. I really need to update my Bankroll chart.
Please let me break even today. You know I really need the money. Sorry I missed you on Sunday.
(See, I can poke a little fun at myself :) )
I see that post in my blog. At the time, I had intended to refresh my 'lifetime bankroll chart' which had started with a 100 to 6000 win. I.e a 60 to one shot got me into the whole Blackjack thing.Quote: MDawg
It's hard to find anything on this site. But I found what you said at least in your blog, "This chart shows what I consider to be my 'lifetime' gambling bankroll, which is still ahead overall." That quote would appear to be from April 2021? And I recall the same or similar comment by you in posts, because I don't even read your blog so I must have seen it somewhere in the forum itself.
At that time in April, I was at close to +£11,000 overall . Much of that, indeed maybe even all of it was from various advantage plays along the way..
Anyhow, I've lost back about 8k of that since then. That probably leaves me still just very slightly ahead.
Generally speaking, and without quoting numbers, I've won and re-lost a few thousand by recreational play and I've lost some AP profits back with more recreational play. I'll update the chart one day soon.
