Wonderful! A single thread for Clumping Theory. Thanks for bringing it to the fore dear Richard.

I want to write a bit about 'Signal strength':

Whatever the bet, there will typically be a part on the wheel where it will succeed more. i.e. if you are using "neighbors" as a bet, there will be a side where the

*"neighbor hit" event* is striking in a greater frequency, it is there where the "signal" is more powerful, where it has more strength; therefore you use it to

**narrow the area** of clumping for such event, helping you when pondering where to focus your attack.

This easily seen in practice when being in front of a disc. Look at the following areas with 3 realized neighbors each:

Zone

**27 **to

**24** has

*3 realized neighbors* (in blue)

Zone

**12** to

**4 **has

*3 realized neighbors* too (in red)

We say the signal is stronger in zone

**12** to

**4** because the events are being realized with a better clumping. The realization of an even in larger areas "dilutes" the signal, the same realization in shorter areas makes it stronger. We back up where it's stronger.

Number

**0** would bring '

*4 realized neighbors'* within an

area of **9**.

Number

**17** would bring '

*4 realized neighbors'* within an

area of **13**.

...hence number

**0** would be given more weight when considering neighbor bets over number

**17**.
