    Kelly Criterion
    In probability theory, the Kelly criterion, or Kelly strategy or Kelly formula, or Kelly bet, is a formula used to determine the optimal size of a series of bets. In most gambling scenarios, and some investing scenarios under some simplifying assumptions, the Kelly strategy will do better than any essentially different strategy in the long run. It was described by J. L. Kelly, Jr, in 1956.

    Rollover - Having to bet 3x your poker tournament winnings in a ring game. For example, you win 100 betpoints in a poker tournament; therefore, you will need to risk 300 points in a ring game to receive your original poker tournament payout.

    I am sorry, If you have to explain what a ML is. What a total is, that person is hopeless.

    i.e. No help.
    i.e. Broke dikk in no time.

    This is the goddamn internet. Google is the number 1 knowledge source in the world. Why people don't use it is beyond me.

    Ill add:

    If win bet, something I never get to because I always lose the first leg, so my if win never goes onto the second leg.
