"Oh so here we go again with another boring thread!? SO, what are these mysterious 'other factors' anyway??"

Well, I am glad you asked!

1) Profit Freezing -- Preserving the profit/overall balance gains against the more probable counter-swing that may take place in the current statistical environment.

Ok, so there may only be one other factor but hey, cut me a break will ya!?

Oh and you may change your votes at any time.

Seriously though, I am trying to think of everything here, all possible factors that could apply to our advantage...

If we have a simple bet selection that contains one element (1 Dozen, 1 EC) then the statistical picture is much simpler after a hit.

If our bet selection is complex (i.e. containing multiple elements) then the statistical picture is more rich and varied.

I think its possible to have a complex bet selection where the odds of obtaining a hit will always be worse when we start a session over. In that case, we are "trading-in" profit freezing (protection against counter swings) for a "grab bag" of an uncertain future statistical environment that could be better or worse than the one we had when we restarted.

There seems to be this "vague & difficult to see" complex ratio between:

1) The

**profit gained/debt reduction**2) The chances of encountering a counter-swing and its implication on future sessions

3) The improved chances of simply gaining profit in a new session with a new target amount that is reduced by the

**profit gained/debt reduction**

Regarding this difficult to quantify 3-dimensional ratio, I am using a "set" profit goal which is one-half the loss amount of the base progression to automatically end the session, regardless of the statistics. I employ this while each session will bring me to a new all0-time high; i.e. no existing debt to pay off.

When I am facing debt, I make the profit goal AT LEAST 1/2 the size so as to be statistically easier to achieve.

I think the principle I am attempting to use here is:

"Profit

in the hand, is worth even more than additional profit

expected in the future"

I simply do not know exactly how this interrelates statistically with the complex ratio but it seems to be working for me?

A powerful question is:

"

*Why actually start a new session? Why not use the same session in some way? Can't we get better odds from the same session rather than risk hitting a worse statistical environment in a new session? Why not just reduce the bet amounts and set a new target goal in the same session?*Ok, that's more than a single question... >.<

**Name all the things that change when a session is re-started**1) The profit that has been gained (or amount of debt reduced) in that session is now placed in a category called "new high balance" or "latest debt reduction balance"

2) All of the "forces governing randomness" that contribute to a counter swing no longer apply in exactly the same way

3) My bet selection is reset to its default starting point

4) The past spins disappear*4A) A fresh set of statistics is applied

... must take a break continuing this list, trust me... :/

*This only applies to online play but begs a new question: What if a B & M roulette wheel is closed down and the electric board unplugged?

What is the difference between an actual statistical environment and a potential statistical environment?

Is it possible that there is a greater chance for a potential statistical environment to be better than a current statistical environment? AND/OR Is it possible that there is a greater chance for a current statistical environment to be better than a potential statistical environment?

CURRENT ENVIRONMENT>POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENT = stay in session

POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENT>CURRENT ENVIRONMENT = begin new session

Reduce a current statistical environment to its

**"lowest common denominator"** and then compare with the statistics of a potential statistical environment.

Playing roulette is like reading a story book. We follow the logical thought of the story and we make logically based assumptions about how the plot will turn out on the next pages; isn't it OBVIOUS sometimes where the plot is going? And aren't some of the best stories, the ones where things go amazingly differently than expected?
