1-2-4-8 and others Vs. 1-3-2-6

  • I hear some people state positive progressions like 1-2-4-8, and they say if you lose the 3rd parlay/progressive you ONLY lose the one unit.  I still endorse and recommend the one that has been highly successful for myself, which is the 1-3-2-6 positive progression and here is why:

    If you get past the 2 parlay/progression, which IMO is the hardest one psychologically to get past, you will have the 3rd one, the one with the 6 units, on the house to wager.  If you lose the last one, you have lost nothing from you buy-in/bank roll.  Yes, you will have 2 units in this on the second wager, but if you prevail and win that one, you have your 2 units returned and the 3rd wager is on the house if you lose that one.  You will have your 2 units back and a profit of 2 units even if you lost the 3rd progression with the 2 units out there.  And the 2 units you have profit is your funding for the next attempt!

    I watch so many players with their Martys and their 1/2/3 and then 2/4/6 and then 4/8/12, etc., and when they lost quickly they are eating into their buy-ins and bank rolls.  Whatever, its all good if you are that arrogant. 

    To me, this is a no brainer, play smarter, NOT HARDER!

    Coupled with my 1 + 4 Side Wager Parlay and my 1/3rd, 1/3rd, 1/3rd Money Management system, I never lose IF I won, never.  And those simple non mechanical system events---can and will assist you more than anything else in this volatile game especially if you won.

  • To clarify, if you see a hand that you do not have confidence in, would you pass on that and wait for a better hand?  Thanks.

    That is a good question. 

    Personally, I DO NOT wager progressions with every hand.  At times I might be consecutive in positive progressions and yet--at other times I will not progress--I will flat bet another amount. 

    I do positive progressions in the order of the progression I use, 1-3-2-6 at times 1-3-2-4 yes.  But my wagering might look something like the following:

    $100/$100/$100 then $300 then $200/$100/$100 then $600.

    But, if I lost any of those highlighted in bold above--I would always go back down to the start of the positive progression.  If I lost another wager that was during the progression but not really part if it, I don't go back down to the start.  I hope I said that right.

    Yes, my positive progression was 1-3-2-6.  But I had another 2 wagers in there with $100 each and another 2 wagers in there of another $100 each.  The way I do it, is I put the 1 and 2 units I have to risk off to the side of my regular chip stack in front of me and I keep track of my 1-3-2-6 that way.  Same with my '1 + 4 Side-Ways Parlay' wager, usually not consecutive on that one for sure.

    And sometimes I would just be consecutive with it as well, depending on what the shoe is producing, etc.

    I am trying/attempting to build win money up off the win money and not necessarily just wagering the same unit(s) without the help of a positive progression at risk.  I am risking only 1 or 2 of my own buy-in capital even though I am wagering up to 6 or more units.

    I would state that is much better to wait and hold back when you are not sure.
    Not bet and if you follow the shoe a new free event to read to make sure you are heading in the right direction.

  • To clarify just remember, you don't have to do it in a mechanical way, you can use positive progressions and things like 1-3-2-6 sporadically. You could flat bet 4, 5 or 6 times and then throw out your 3 and then you can flatbed for a certain amount of other times and then through out your 2, and then when you're feeling it you could throw out your 6, it works it works a lot better than doing it in a consecutive mechanical order because that's a setup for failure of your progression before your order is over, only  to mess everything up more often than not.
