Yep, was at the casino the other night. I paid particular attention to how all were wagering after they lost or won a round. Really seemed haphazard. There was one lady that would distinctively wager/parlay an entire win one time and then pull down to her base wager or even below. When she lost a hand or two or three, she would exactly double up for at least 3 times and then stop the doubling. Her base wager was $100.00. Every one else was virtually haphazard.
Almost all the players, seemed to be flat wagering continually. Although, when the table did get hot, a few were parlaying and continuing parlaying with nothing going into their bankrolls or pockets. One would pocket the profits from the parlaying after 3 or 4 successful wagers, but that was it. The clear majority would not.
I have never really doubled up on losses, maybe I do one hand and then I would stop, too much losses in the past doing that for me personally. I also play where there is a $2k or a $3k limit locally and I do not wager in other player's spots, to me it is tacky and just wrong to do that, except on a fortune if they are not wagering it or have far less than the $50 max allowed.
The past couple of years I have dedicated my bankroll to: 1) My main wager; and also 2) An amount I maintain for a 4 or 5 wager parlay that I continually keep going forward with but not on every hand or every wager I make.
So, I might have a base of $250.00. That would be my main wager amount and would employ the 1-3-2-6 units if I won past my first wager. Then I also have a side amount, depending on the way I feel and have already done. Say I have a $200.00 side wager for parlaying. I would, when I felt the time was right (for whatever reason) throw out my parlay wager of $200.00. If I won with that, I would set it back aside and the next one would be $400.00. Then the following one would be $800.00. And the following one $1,600.00. That parlay wager would be pulled down upon its 4th or 5th successful hit and locked up, done with that. If I lose the first to the 4th or 5th parlay wager bet, I would continue or stop that wagering depending on if my parlay wager bankroll was depleted or not. I usually have a 3 to 5 time try, for my parlay wager bankroll.
It has been working for me and gives me a giant boost many times. I have better control of my bankroll and better management of it with the designated purposes as I explained.
