it's been a while ... well .. quiete a while.
do you remember C.E.H with his C.W.B. I'm sure you do. and I don't want to stir old things up again. but as I read this topic I remembered one thing that ol' charly e. hamster once wrote:
"Now as promised I will help you in that direction. I have no doubt that SOME idiots will take this as an actual bet or some hidden clue.
THIS IS NOT A BET….BUT A PROPER GUIDE TO WHAT A “Bet Within a Bet” is all about.
As a pure EXAMPLE ONLY let us take a 50/50 bet like the penultimate which is fairly stable in the results as IF…you where betting it (NOTE IF !)
Taking the results ( Wins & Losses) as IF you where betting it, you may SEE that for INSTANCE….perhaps after three losses, IF you bet you THEN …..you would win say seven out of every ten. IF that was a FACT ? You would then have a consistent winner you could use to make a great deal of money…..IF you was a Professional ?
THAT IS AN EXAMPLE OF A " BET WITHIN A BET"
So IF we take Mikes assumption that after 3 losses somehow mr. edge waits around the corner and ADD this statement here, it seems to me, it needs one or two bits more than just wait for 3 losses to start betting.
