First of all, my thanks to Tomla021 for sharing this 4 step bet method with me. It’s not invincible, but it has been holding strong so far and still much better than your average system.

We start with 4 units and we use them to win 4 more units. It’s a very clever positioning of the won units that makes this a strong method. Explanation follows.

Here’s our chart. It has 4 patterns. Memorize it. It’s easy to do.

1 1 1 1 = 4 units

1 2 1 1 = 5 units

1 1 2 2 = 6 units

1 1 2 3 = 7 units

Start with 4 units 1 1 1 1

Bet the 1st unit. If it wins, put it on the 2nd unit like this 1 2 1 1.

Bet the 1st unit. If it wins, put it on the 4th unit and move 1 unit from the 2nd position to the 3rd position like this 1 1 2 2.

Bet the 1st unit. If it wins, put it on the 4th position like this 1 1 2 3.

Bet the 1st unit. If it wins, we have won 4 units. Goal accomplished.

But what if we don’t win 4 times in a row?

We always bet the leftmost position and we always try to re-create the above positions.

We bet the 1st unit and if we lose, we bet the 2nd unit.

If we win on the 2nd unit we replace the 1st lost unit and we have 1 1 1 1 again. Start over.

If we win the 1st bet we will have 1 2 1 1. If we lose the next bet we will have X 2 1 1.

The leftmost number is 2 which we bet. If we win, we will have 6 units. We look at our chart and see what pattern is made up of 6 units. It’s 1 1 2 2. That’s our new pattern and we now bet the leftmost position, the 1st position or 1 unit.

Note: We only recreate our chart after a win. Everything stays in place after a loss.

If we win 2 times and then lose 2 times we will have X X 2 2. Since we just lost we don’t re-arrange the units so our next bet is 2. A win here and we are re-arrange our chart to 1 1 2 2.

If we lose 3 times we will havel X X X 2. We bet the 2 and if we win we will have 4 units and anytime we have 4 units after a win, we re-create the 4 units pattern, 1 1 1 1.

If we have the 1 1 2 3 pattern and we lose 3 times in a row we will have X X X 3 so we bet 3. If we win we will have 6 units so we re-create the 6 units pattern, 1 1 2 2 and bet the 1st 1 next.

As you can see, the way we move the units around maximizes our chances of staying alive until we can win our 4 units.

This can be the foundation of a lot of betting methods to give us a better chance to walk away with a few chips.

I could stop right here. But I won’t.

All we have to do is substitute this 4 unit series for a single unit. For example, let’s say we’re betting D’Alembert or +1 on a loss and -1 on a win. Instead of 1 unit we substitue 4 units. We play our 4 unit pattern and if we lose, that represents a 1 unit loss so we +1 and our next pattern is 2 2 2 2. We play it the same way as the 1 1 1 1 and if we win, we will have won 8 units which represents 2 units -1 unit = +1 unit. Remember a unit is = to 4 units.

With a little thought, you can use this betting pattern with every bet progression there is!

Will it perform better than a single unit?

Well, that’s the rest of the story. And it’s yet to be determined.

________________________

I have tried it with a variety of progressions:

The simplest is a simple D’Alembert or +1/-1

1 1 1 1

2 2 2 2

3 3 3 3

4 4 4 4

5 5 5 5

6 6 6 6

7 7 7 7

etc….

This works just fine. It’s a little slow, but effective. If you want to make it more of a grind, you can play the double Alembert

1 1 1 1

1 1 1 1

2 2 2 2

2 2 2 2

3 3 3 3

3 3 3 3

etc…

Or for those who want a more aggressive version of Alembert

1 1 1 1

3 3 3 3

5 5 5 5

7 7 7 7

9 9 9 9

etc…

A simple martingale is also very effective. I have tried it and just can’t seem to get past the 16 level.

1 1 1 1

2 2 2 2

4 4 4 4

8 8 8 8

16 16 16 16

32 32 32 32

64 64 64 64

Any time we complete a level, we will be at +4

Fibonacci

1 1 1 1

1 1 1 1

2 2 2 2

3 3 3 3

5 5 5 5

8 8 8 8

13 13 13 13

21 21 21 21

34 34 34 34

etc…

Remember, we have to win 2 levels to fully recover. The level of our 1st win and the level just below it.

Using the ambidex bet method may be too complicated especially if the bet selection system wins on a flat bet.

That would be too good to be true.

This may be more info than most of you are interested in, but if even one of you can fit it into your arsenal, it’ll be worth it.
