##### The Controlled Risk Betting Strategy(CRB)
« on: November 20, 2014, 10:08:07 PM »
Hello Friends.
I came across a system called the Control Risk Bet Strategy and want your input on this approach. I did not create this, I read it and wanted to see what you think.

The Control Risk Betting Strategy or CRB Betting Strategy is a method for determining the size of every wager you will make before you make the wager. It is not a predefined betting series like a Martingale. You will recall that if you use a Martingale progression you double each wager following a loss until you have a winning wager. A Martingale betting series for a table with \$5 minimum wagers would be: 5 10 20 40 80 160 320 640 and so on.

There are several problems with using a Martingale type of progression.

1. A larger bankroll is required. In order to use a Martingale progression, you have to use a bankroll for each game equal in size to the sum of all of the wagers. The above series would require a bankroll of \$1,275.

2. A Martingale progression risks too much in order to win a small amount. If you lost the first seven wagers in the above Martingale series, you would have lost \$635 and would be called on to wager \$640 in order to recoup your loss and capture a \$5 gain. Here the risk is all out of proportion to the potential gain.

3. While Martingale progressions win frequently, the size of their losses are too large. One loss will wipe out hours of profits. And, as we have seen earlier, the improbable (like losing seven decisions in a row) occurs often enough in gambling that you can be sure that you will have large losses if you use a Martingale progression.

The CRB Strategy for Even-Money bets is a flexible strategy where bets can move up and down within a range. By taking this approach, the size of our wagers stay small.

How the CRB Strategy Works
The basic betting system for playing at a \$5 minimum wager roulette table has the following rules:
A. The base bet is \$5. This is the minimum wager made.
B. The maximum bet in a game is \$27. If this amount is wagered and lost, the following wager will be for \$15.
C. The amount of the wager is increased by \$3 following a loss
D. The amount of a wager is reduced by \$2 following any win.
E. After any two consecutive wins, the amount of the wager is reduced by \$5.

What are your thoughts on this approach?  It is almost like a variation on the D'Alembert Strategy.

I've read it too,it's one of the worst systems I've ever read!
The author is such a blatant lier...full of major BS!
Just check on youtube for Silverthorn publications,systems,complaints,refunds,scams...etc
Just to give you an idea,someone bought some systems for several hundred and when he decided to get a refund,as Silverthorn offered,he got NOTHING and want to get revenge by giving away for free all of those crappy systems!

You are right Blue Angel.  Rule #1. Never pay for a system or software claiming to beat roulette. It is a scam. The people that will tell you otherwise are the ones trying to sell it to you.  I personally create my systems and strategy by reading books and practicing them.  I live near Las Vegas so I can practice quite frequently. I only play at real casinos in person.  My philosophy is that roulette is not a "one size fits all" approach. The way I play may be different than the way you play.  I say if you find a way that works for you, use it.  Best of Luck to you my friend!

I'll come at Vegas on the beginning of February,perhaps we could meet there.
I don't believe in luck,I believe in opportunities and life is full of them...
Allow me to give my own definition about luck;
Luck is when the proper preparation meets the proper opportunity...!
Just think about it for a minute,what we call "luck"? Isn't it the circumstances which are playing a very important role in our lives?
Circumstances may allow or may not to achieve what you deserve...so if the half part is to be ready till the opportunity arises,the rest is the circumstance,chance,opportunity or whatever you want to call it.
And I'm not talking only about gambling...in a way,life is a big gamble.
The way I think casinos is certainly NOT my enemy,but an enterprise which is giving me the chance to claim what I deserve.
When I'm winning,I'm not receiving the casinos money,but other gambler's money.
The casino is just a mediator,an arbitrary authority to provide a nice,comfortable venue and because of their expenses (salaries,taxes,security,service...etc) have to acquire a percentage of the total action,which I found very reasonable.
In gamble like in life many people want,have desires,but very few can achieve what they really want,the rest just compromise with their circumstances...

Blue Angel,

Let me know when you will be in Las Vegas and I will see if I can meet up with you.  I like that quote you used. " Luck is when preparedness meets opportunity."  Seneca, the Roman philosopher said that.  It was then quoted by my favorite motivational speaker Earl Nightingale.  I like the way you think.  It is important to keep our minds sharp.  Roulette is competing with yourself and it is a journey for myself.  Attitude is everything when playing this game and I feel that one's attitude is one of the intangible qualities that in fact do affect the outcome the game.

I wish your both luck. Prepair yourself very well. America is not my place to play roulette. The unbeatable HE of 5.3% is too high.
Blue Angel  I have given alot of remarks about flat betting. FB systems has the less risk but mostly very bold. Perheps you can find some good advise in my blog.

Thank you Dobbel.  I am not a big fan of American Roulette myself, but they finally have added European Roulette tables at Caesar's Palace and The Bellagio.  Unfortunately at The Bellagio it is in the high limit rooms because of the better odds it gives a player. The buy in is much more expensive.  One day I plan on taking a visit to Europe and find a few places to play Roulette. I will definitely keep both you Dobbel and Kav in mind.  I think we would all have a great time. And same goes for all of you, if you are ever in Las Vegas, let me know and I will do my very best to introduce myself and we can have some drinks and enjoy the wonderful game of roulette. Maybe take in a few shows as well.  Cheers.

Yes,it was my mistake (about FB system)
Thanks for the correction,I have read your blog and in general I agree with the way you approach the game,BUT I've used similar tactics like yours,based on facts,statistics...BUT i found that are not so practical and effective after all.
Don't get me wrong,you way seems very objective,sensible and professional BUT when the time for action comes all theories are flying away...!

Just a thing I would like to add,I'm going to Vegas not only for playing roulette,but also craps.
At Greece where I'm living,there are NO casinos with craps,NOT even one!
However I've played craps before at Italy,they have 2 casinos with craps there.
The casinos at Vegas with European roulette are more than 2,here are the rest:

Aria, Bellagio, Encore, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, Mirage, Palazzo, Venetian, Wynn, Stratosphere, Monte Carlo, The Frontier and Tropicana, Ceasars Palace, Binion’s, the Reserve, Las Vegas Hilton.

Most of them including the "en prison" or the "le partage" rules for EC bets,thus dropping HE further on 1.35%
Also the minimums for the EC bets is 25 \$ for the most of the prementioned establishments.

There was craps in Loutraki, but stopped it and got rid of it around 2010. If you played craps there between 2005 and 2010 I definitely know you. I didn't play craps but roulettes next to the craps table. Then they established the long awaited Texas Holdem.

Yes, I threw up in my mouth a little when i reviewed this betting strategy.  What respect I had for Silverthorne went down by about 75% after that.
