    Martingale

    The Martingale system has you double your bet after every loss, so that the first win would recover all previous losses plus a profit equal to the original bet. For example, say you started with a $100 bet and lose. You would then double your bet and continue doubling each bet until you finally win ($100, $200, and so on.). By the time you reach your fifth bet, youíd be risking $1,600. The Martingale betting strategy is seen as a sure thing by some since a gambler with an unlimited bankroll will eventually win.

    not true at all

    OUTs might not allow for the larger bet sizes.

    also its a terrible idea to double up on a negative expectation wager in all cases.

    plus this is a sign of tilt...

    No one sees it like that. And if anyone did, they would try it out and quickly learn it isn't a sure thing. Which would bring us right back to no one seeing it like that.

    I guess you missed the part about if you had an unlimited bankroll... I believe itís meant in theory as itís highly improbable to lose every bet.

    Any betting system would end up with the same exact results given an unlimited bankroll. After each bet, the bankroll remains the same: unlimited. Does that mean every betting system is seen as a sure thing by some?

    If I had an unlimited bankroll, why would I be gambling in the first place? If I already have an infinite amount of $, gambling to try to get extra money unfortunately won't make my bankroll go higher

    If the table limit is 100x the minimum bet, ie $5 - $500, then you only get 6 shots before the limit ruins the plan.

    if it's 200x then you still only get 8 shots.

    Agreed....I donít like the concept at all and itís a stupid statement but isnít incorrect....best play is consistent wagers on ur perceived edge
