my strategy:
after every hit, i press the flat bet 10%

ie: flat bet \$8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,17,19,21,23,25,28,31,34

I sat down with \$1000, and immediately hit 15 #'s!!
i won \$675.

at 3/4/5x odds, the avg win with \$8 flat is \$56.
56 x 15 = \$840

so if i stayed at \$8 instead of pressing, i would have won more \$.

so apparently a 10% press after every hit is too aggressive???

any other explanations?

edit:
clarified pressing the flat bet 10%

It seems like you took out the losses for what was left out on the table with your \$675 win, but you didn't take anything out for the flat betting. You must have over \$200 out on the table when that 7out happens that you aren't including.

I think that pressing is actually one of the least aggressive strategies. I assume pressing 10% means you just press the one that was just rolled 10% and not every bet out there.

i had at least \$650 on the table when the flat bet was \$25.

if i left it flat, i would have had \$240 on the table.

'10% press' is pressing the flat bet 10%.
ie: \$8 + 10% = 9, 15 + 10% = 17, 25 + 10% = 28
(Clarified my OP)

ahh.. i get it. i should count the \$400 in additional \$ on the table to the \$ i won.
so i actually won \$1075 but walked away with 675 because \$400 of that was left on the table due to the presses.

but thats just it. i would have walked away with more \$ if i didnt press.
thus the 10% press is too aggressive???
