I agree it would be a a wholly irresponsible 'strategy' to promote. I certainly wouldn't do so.

Nor me. Several have read something that ins't there.

SB and I are still correct, mathematically it holds. Of course there are real world limits that would mean it wouldn't, i've not and don't dispute that.

Slight overreaction.

Its up to the forum to decide the direction of a conversation. SB and I just corrected Ryorry's misunderstanding.

You're missing the point, its only the numbers that matter. You just have to keep going until you back a winner.

You could apply it to any sport as long as there is a never ending supply of bets.

Those's things don't matter, only the odds.

Bet 1 you place stake to win £5. If that looses...

Bet 2 place stake to recover you lost stake for bet 1 plus £10 profit. If that looses...

Bet 3 place stake to recover you lost stakes for bets 1 and 2 plus £15.

etc.

Thing is its mathematically sound. The problem arises when eventually (and it will happen) you hit that long run of losing bets and the theory dictates you need to place 100's or 1000's on the next bet.

I read a similar system years ago and out of curiosity did a few dry runs. The intention was to win £5 per bet, all you had to do was keen going until that winner came in. After a few that worked I hit the inevitable long loosing run and reached the point where the system dictated my next bet should be £350. Had that lost the one after would be over £700.

Donacien tries but he really is a terrible player. He genuinely is worse than Spence. We paid £750k!
