Hayatt,

When I have been playing ring games online lately, I have been using Lanky's divisor method, its used for roulette but really it can be used for any sort of gambling.

It works very well and you can profit even if you are just a moderately good player.

It would work like this.

My base buyin (unit) is $20 and I would start on the 25c-50c tables, for a $40 buy it would obviously be then a 50c-$1 table and for a $60 I move to $1-$2, for a $80 I stay with $1-$2

I start of by playing a $20 game if I lose I play a $40 game and if I lose again I play a $60 game. If I lose all 3 games then I use the divisor to recover the money and it will also leave me with $20 profit.

So lets say I have lost 3 games in a row, which is very rare for me on ring tables.

I am down 6 units (or $120). this is how the divisor is used to recover. I'l throw in some loses too.

The amount of units played with is decided by dividing the small divisor into the larger divisor and rounding it up to the nearest unit. When you win a game (which is to double your buyin) the small divisor goes down by 1 and if you lose 2 games in a row it goes up by 1.

After every win the amount of units won is deducted from the large divisor and every loss the units are added to the large divisor.

OK here we go... -$120 (6 units) at the moment.

I'll make it as bad as possible

Win/Loss...divisor---units---total--profit

Loss.........6...13.......3.........-9

Loss..........6...16......3....... -12

Win...........7...19......3........-9

Loss..........6...16......3........-12

Win...........6...19......4........-8

Loss..........5....15......3.......-11

Win...........5...18.......4........-7

Win...........4....14.....4.........-3

Loss..........3.....10....4.........-7

Win............3....14.....5........-2

Now the divisor is down to 2 and you bring in a new divisor adding 6 to the small (2+6) divisor and 7 to the large divisor (9+7). You can bring the new divisor in when the small divisor is down to 3 either, its slower but less aggressive.

Now you have....

Win............8.....16.....2........0 Recovery complete

So in total here I made a total of 13 buyins and only won 5 of them. That a pretty terrible day at the office and I would have still not lost any money.

On this occasion the divisor went on a long time and just broke even, on othr sessions it would leave you with one unit profit.

Having said that I rarely even use the divisor but it is good to use as a recovery method I find. You have to actually lose 3 buyins first before you use it and that rarely happens me, having said that I have only being using it for about 2 weeks.

Cheers
