First, congrats for the win my friend. You deserve it.
Thanks for your openness too. It motivates and "keeps the lights of hope on
" for many would-be players world-wide (you'd be amazed at the extent of individuals a website can reach! The "silent majority", reads with enthusiasm. Plenty even visit every day, We -all posters- were part of this group first, so you know it's a big chunk).
We all fail at times but in this slippery game of roulette our endeavour is to mitigate loss ( cycles) and enhance win (cycles).
I have been very open about this on the MB16 threads. It is actually very simple. Find any useful bet ( but not necessarily and inherently winning bet - there are a few) such as the 16 number MB quads, and observe its performance against the house edge.
Outcomes unfold in cycles; win and loss cycles. The loss cycles are corrective and more than make up (on behalf of the house) for the occasional win streaks. With 16/ 37 it is possible to have several sequences where multiple hits can occur sequentially. The bet characteristic has to be understood, as must be the environment of the casino itself.
All this requires patience, and multiple earlier test but real money applications. Losses must be kept small by tight RB limits.
You hit the nail and summarized it up.
Tracking the lesser part of the "uneven combinations" (19+ on European, 21+ on American) can be "milk-able" by focusing in these corrections, risking very focused units using a long-term money-management framework, reaping “correction chips” if it manifests. As I called this under the Lw framework: "hunting for L's", which is nothing more than aiming at very short-term corrections.
Never a longer-term “full correction”, but one of the more-frequent “in-session corrections
” appearing within the time you are sitting there. Partials included
Wiping your session bank must be only happen under terrible misses. Only after several failed focused attacks
and never as the result of a single progression gone wrong. Most importantly:
Part of every unit won within the session must be saved, also part of it must be reinvested to assist the averages for maximizing profits while minimizing losses.
Look at my 75% Money Management
thread for an inter-session money management
dealing with both in-session rising as well as creating more “cushion” when things do well.
Having a bankroll is the “air for us to breath” when gambling. Throughout the years I’ve learned the best money management is the one that cares about the whole picture. Inter-session money management is possibly one of the most-neglected topics when you look at the progressions around. You can rise the base unit
for progressive and flat-betting plans alike. Your overall money-management should take care of keeping you in game (creating new “cushion bankrolls”), feeding you (telling you precisely when to take and how much to take for your personal expenses), have a clear maximum loss permitted for each session and also saving you from total wipe-out if you are ever ahead within your current game when you sit at the table / play.
These elements are key.
On the bet selection side, yes, the "statistical pressure" for the correction is eventually going to manifest. The gist is not becoming stubborn
and believe it must correct YOUR
desired numerical group, but rather to keep it malleable, tracking several possibilities for these opportunities with a sharp eye. Like our forum's own Lady K said, developing "the correct set of eyes" for these groupings is the hardest part... But it is doable, and it may be one of the most rewarding skills for you to have if you take these games seriously.
A player can eventually come to this type of game as a personal conclusion by spending their money. Some notice the clumping of RED/BLACK colors on the marquee, also the “GREENS CALLING THE GREENS” common saying. Losing bank after bank through time can be a teacher, but it isn’t the only way -or even the best way- to notice these session cycles and clumping “facts” for those who want to develop these skills and/or possibilities.
There is enough material on the net and programs to practice with (I’m doing my part with pdBets
to assist on the free software side).
My best advice being: “Invest time instead of chips to learn”.
It’s basically all laid out there, if you want to see it.
