A few tests.... I suppose it could be a flowchart, but here's a first draft....

Does it look like a pile of 💩?
If yes, proceed with caution.
Does it smell look like a pile of 💩?
If yes, proceed with extreme caution.
Is it steaming like a pile of 💩?
If yes, proceed with super extreme caution.
Is everyone except one person screaming "Oi! Mind you don't step in that pile of 💩"?
Is there one person nearby just pulling his pants up, next to it?
If yes, open you mind to the idea that evidence might be starting to mount that you are being presented with a pile of 💩?
Is that one person insisting that it is brown nectar and inviting you to taste it for yourself?

Make your own mind up..... But you can have my share.

If you need a betting system you're screwed before you start, there are no good ones unless you already have good bet selection. And then you don't need one.

I can tenuously agree with you there, EB. The tenuous bit revolves around the word 'need'.
As Wizard rightly says, "All betting systems are worthless.", which I prefer to express as "All betting systems are of no monetary value". Subtly difference if one assigns "Worth" to getting some amusement or control of adrenaline flow. One can certainly 'shape' the path of one's bankroll progress using even the most simple system: We can have the ramp and plunge of martingale, or the steady decline and occasional big hit of reverse martingale, or indeed we can use different levels of wager to make our sessions last longer or shorter. If that has 'worth to you' then who are we to argue. It's similar to stop losses and session win goals, in that they can help to change our enjoyment of the game and temper our risk of losing out to addiction.

Stop losses and win goals and hit and run or win and leave are also of no monetary value, except for if they discourage or pace out some wagers.

I'm sure EB will be along to counter that Bet Selection is the only thing of monetary value. It's just a shame that trend following and pattern recognition are also of zero value.

I have my purple unicorn, Henry, assist me with bet selection. He guesses every wager correctly and never ever gives me bad advice.

Bet selection is King, it's all that matters. And everything has zero value until you figure out how to use it. Henry Ford used to own his own oak tree forests and sawmills to supply him with the wood needed to build his Model T. These places produced a ton of sawdust that was considered a waste product of zero value and was usually hauled away and burned until Henry Ford figured out he could turn it into charcoal and he started the Kingsford Charcoal company which still exists to this day. So just because you can't figure out how to use trends and patterns does not mean they have no value to somebody else. Try and look beyond the end of your nose, there's a whole other world out there.

You just made my point for me. To you that pile of sawdust looks like a pile of crap that needs to be hauled away. To Henry Ford it looked like a pile of money. He ends up fabulously wealthy and you end up with well, a pile of crap.. Just because you see nothing in patterns and trends doesn't mean there's nothing there. It means there's nothing there for you. Luckily for me I didn't know any of that when I started so for me patterns and trends are a literal gold mine. One man's pile of crap is another man's gold mine. Been true since the beginning of time..

Congratulations EB on smearing your Marmite coloured crock of gold across yet another thread on this forum. Wizard and the moderators grant you that right to deface the place in that way. That you ( claim to ) believe that you are endowed with the super human prowess at 'educated guessing' random outcomes has now been touted in how many threads? Does it make you sad that so many of them got closed down. Or did you prefer the clean slate offered by new threads? Your unbelievable prowess was unproven in 2011 and is still as brown and sticky, and unproven now as it ever was.
I can't prove that you have no such unbelievable trend using pattern recognising prowess any more than you can ( care to ) prove that you do have.

Henry the Unicorn joins me and many other members here in suggesting that you can have our share of the marmite coloured, steaming, smelly gold. We won't be dipping a finger in and taking a taste.

Defend yourself?
You, sir defend your 'Method' passionately. I've never quite understood why. I once thought it was just you being mischievous in defending something you know to be worthless, just for your own amusement. But you are steadily convincing me of the only viable alternative theory that I can come up with. That you actually believe in your prowess. Pity.

Henry the Unicorn sends his regards.

I not only believe in it, the casino pays me for believing it and for demonstrating it.

I'm cleaning my basement this week and I came across a box today from 2009 full of notebooks with my roulette practice sessions. Hundreds of pages, an entire box full of paper. And that's just up to 2009, I had boxes and boxes from later dates but I threw most of them away. I thought I'll take a picture of this box and post it then I thought why bother they'll just say I just made it up, it's all fake. LOL. I'm looking through the stuff and thinking I must have really been obsessed but then it got me to where I am today. So yeah, I actually 100% totally believe in my prowess because it took me a long long long long time to get here.

Sure it does. Good on ya. Who are we to disprove your assertion. The evidence for your method is smeared like Marmite over so many pages of so many forums, over so many years. Why would you do that if you didn't believe it?

And there it is. Not saying that you believe it because it's demonstrably true, but that you believe in it because you 'spent' so much time obsessing over it, jotting notes, practicing. It would take so much [I can't say the word] to admit to YOURSELF that you have wasted 14 years* obsessing over a roulette wheel. Far easier to stick to your narrative than to admit a wasted decade chasing a Holy Grail that does not exist.
Oh. 'the casino pays your bills.' That is such an easy assertion to make, and impossible for us to disprove. Doesn't make it true.

So for now, I accept that you believe it. One day you might convince someone that it's true. It will never be true.

Henry my pet unicorn agrees.

*2009 - 2023 is not 18 years. I have no idea where you came up with 18 years.

Nice try. It's demonstrably true not because I discovered it two weeks ago, but because I developed it over a long long long time. 2009 is where the box of notebooks is from, it contains my work previous to 2009. I actually discovered Roulette in 2004 and started working on it in 2005, 18 years ago. I joined gamblers Glen in 2006 and that's when people started telling me that I wasn't doing what I was doing. Like they would know. And none of the time has been wasted. Just tonight I was playing and something really obvious was going on with the outcomes and I looked at it, and I said no, and I bet the opposite of what it looked like I should have bet. And I was right. Now how did I know that, how did I know to do that. From 18 years of scribbling in notebooks, observing outcomes, that's how. You would say that it was just dumb luck. Just like the guy who's an expert deer hunter and goes out and bags a buck every single year. Luck has nothing to do with it.

All is fine and cool - being obsessed about being able to make easy money through gambling, being self-delusional about the actual results, being spiteful and vengeful to people who deny you your delusions - it's all part of the human nature and understandable.

But Lying is not cool and it's bad karma. One should not lie, it only brings misfortunes down the road.

The casinos pay EB every damn day. There is no mention of how often EB deposits new funds.

If EB has accounts at a few casinos, he can surely pay all of his bills with money that he has recently withdrawn from a casino. It probably supports his delusions to launder the expenses through an online casino this way.

I always withdraw to my brokerage account, but I use PayPal to deposit for bonuses or if I have a bad run. It just makes it easier to track funs flows this way. However, my brokerage statement makes it look like I only ever withdraw from casinos. EB might use one account just so he can show his better half that the casinos are paying all of the bills. Eventually, he comes to believe it himself.

By EB's own admission there is no way gambling pays all his bills every month.

He has said there are days where he doesn't make a bet at all because he doesn't get any good patterns.

We've seen how much he bets by the very logs he himself has posted... it's literally pennies a day, or at most a couple of bucks.

He has admitted multiple times that he refuses to bet more than this because then the casinos will ban him.

So how much does he make gambling online? If we piece together the clues from his own words, he's pulling in, what, less than $100 a month? Maybe even less than $50? He has done or said nothing to demonstrate otherwise. He once offered to post six weeks worth of logs to show how much he could win, but this offer was immediately retracted when others in the forum called his bluff and agreed to his terms.

He is NOT paying his bills from gambling winnings, other than maybe a phone bill and some cat food every now and then.

I have talked about this before. I don't make deposits unless it's a new casino, that's part of the problem. All I do is make withdrawals, why would I ever need to make a deposit. I might change that just to make it look like I'm making deposits but I don't think it's that easy to fool the Casino computer.

I played a lot of Sic Bo the year I worked in AC. I was convinced I'd developed a betting pattern that gave me an edge. I filled two or three notebooks with results. Each time, I'd come oh so close and knew it was just missing that final fine-tuning. I even hired a client of mine, who was a high school math teacher, to review my notes and find my error. After a fifteen minute explanation and a minute or two of examining my work, he gave it all back and told me I'd achieve the same results simply flat betting. It took me years to realize he was right.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is NOT a winning strategy: Pressing into trends is NOT a winning strategy: Progressive betting systems are NOT a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

Not deleted fast enough to escape notice. Why did you delete that I wonder?
Oh. And 'Evaluating Betting Systems & Methods' was not a reference to E.B.

Thanks Bill. Nice one!
I bet that for a while you thought something along the lines of "Thank Heck I didn't waste any money wagering on that pattern, or worst still telling everyone how great it was". You accepted correction and explanation and you wised yourself up. No shame in that. But had you put a LOT more effort into it and invested a decade out of your life, and touted your prowess on forums, wouldn't you have been inclined to cling onto the misguided fantasy tighter and tighter?
I know I would. It's human nature.

The truth shall set you free.
