Actually, I see no progress at all on any of the forums these days towards bettering our chances to win. People either gave up on this or a few are busy in churning oldschool proven failure ideas. Whenever I come up with some innovation and feel like discussing to members here, I see no progress and it feels like talking to wall here. Other forums have more chit chat but many members are foulmouth and there is no attempt to control that by admins. This forum is the most disciplined one but apart from the admin himself, asymbac, Victor and myself nobody is even writing a single post for months.
I have kind of concluded a way to play where I can handle the worst with least damage(believe me it is not tough with the correct use of RTM) and win in the average or little below average sessions very easily. Handling variance is the sole challenge and variance could come in various scales and shapes.
All oldschool progressions are deadly dangerous and helpful to casino than players. We must understand the limitations of any way to increase or decrease bets, it can only help upto an extent. Progression is a double edged sword. A skilled player will use it to kill enemies at double pace, a naive player would hurt himself by it.
Anyways, it looks like I am trying to preach all. I think, the moment one gets successful in developing any way to better his chances, he will get silent too. I do not think we have among us, any true pro player or even players with serious money and that describes the silence here. I tried my best to have worthy debates here on my blog and wish you all the best for your attempts. I enjoyed my researches and got help from many programmers here from VLS to Nickmsi, Ophis to Stef. I wish to start a community meant for all serious players, innovators, researchers and programmers where we talk of the real game.
