Re: my method of playing
August 14, 2009, 01:30:21 PM
When I did my limited testing with it it seemed to win 90 odd percent flat betting so I dont know if it is a loser long term

I actually have a bot that plays it flat betting. I have not used the bot for real money and I don't know if I am going to. I ran it a little bit and it is up a few units in play money. I'll try to run it while I sleep at night in play mode to see how it does. Everytime I go to run it while I am not at my computer, my computer shuts down. So hopefully I'll get all of my settings on my computer sorted out soon.

3+capping/opposite shoe hybrid
August 26, 2009, 08:16:11 PM
After doing some thinking I think that I may have a way to improve the 3+capping method.
Right now I either play the 3+capping method without the progression or I play my new system (using the opposite shoe). I have mainly been focusing on the opposite shoe system because it has been more successful and much safer.

Last night as I was playing I realized that I can combine the two systems and make a 3+capping opposite shoe hybrid. I am not going to go into details on what the system will look like yet. I still have to gather some more thoughts on this and begin testing. I am going to continue playing the opposite shoe system live (this will also allow me to gather shoes for testing). Whenever I have time I will work on the 3+capping hybrid. Right now my idea is only an idea but I think it could possibly be very successful. I guess that time will tell.

I'll explore this idea and elaborate more when I get free time. It will probably be a somewhat long process because I am back at college. If anybody is interested in helping then let me know. Many of you are much better at this then me.

Hi John,

i'm thinking that you should stick with the opposite shoe method because you say it is doing so well till now.
i think you said you have won more than 150 units till now which is great.
What bankroll you think would be appropriate and what are the worse drawdowns you have experienced?

Regards,
Sundowner.

Thanks for the advice. I am sticking with the opposite shoe system for now but I am going to begin thinking about this idea.

I am not sure what a good bankroll would be. When I won the 150 units I started with a bankroll of 60 units. The method involves a slight progression so a large bankroll should not be needed. However, I always like to have a little more to be safe. I would say that a bankroll between 40 to 100 units would be good enough.
My largest drawdown has been -3 or -4 units.
