The Wrangler System
« on: November 03, 2014, 10:59:16 PM »
Hello my fellow Enthusiasts!  I have read up on another interesting system called The Wrangler System.  I wanted to share it with you all.  I am here to share my knowledge and experiences with you all and hope you all succeed in your roulette journeys. After all, the game of roulette is to compete with yourself, not the casino or other players.


The man who invented it was one of the most brilliant mathematicians of his day. This man who played it with such success used to come to Monte Carlo with 400 pounds. This he divided up into two capitals of 5000 francs each. If he doubled the first one, he used to put his own money away and play entirely with that of the Bank. If he lost his first capital, he used to fall back upon the second one. His unit was a five-franc piece ; consequently he always had 1000 units in his pocket to fight the Bank with. He had plenty of time four or five months in which to operate, and was therefore never in a hurry.

The system was perfectly simple, being a mixture of the ordinary Martingale combined with a sort of improved 'Labby,' but the method of staking was ingenious and well adapted to the Progression he employed.

As soon as he arrived at the table he waited for one spin, to see what came out. If it was Red he staked on Red, and if it was Black he went on Black. He continued to stake on the same color until he lost twice in succession, and then changed over to the opposite side. He remained on that side until he again lost twice consecutively, when he once more changed over. This was his invariable method of staking. It is something like the 'Avant Derniere,' which is fully described in Ten Days at Monte Carlo, only better adapted to the 'Wrangler's' Progression. He commenced with a five-franc piece and played the Martingale 1, 2, 4, 8. Unless, therefore, the Bank beat him four times running, he continued to win their five franc pieces, and as there was practically only one combination of figures on which they could beat him, he often won 5 or 10 louis from them without any trouble. The only thing that defeated him was several "coups de deux" coming consecutively, or two coming after a run. For example:  Black, Black, Red, Red, Black, Black. He loses four times in succession. If the ' coups de deux ' do not follow one another on the card, it does not matter, and he still continues to win 1 coup in every 4.

Now in the event of his losing four times consecutively his total loss amounted to 15 units. This he used to write down on his score sheet in the following manner and endeavor to wipe it out with an ordinary  Labouchere  method of staking." 2 3 2 3 2 3 ". If he found that his figures were becoming too large and he had already lost about 50 units, he then used to cry a 'halt,' and split up his one big Labby into two or three small ones, and continue staking on the same system until he saw daylight. After getting into deep water and coming out without loss, he would always abandon the struggle for that day, and be thankful that his capital was intact. Of course if he succeeded in doubling his first capital, and was playing entirely with the Bank's money, he used to play a less cautious game than he would if his own was at stake.

Hello Romn. Great system!

One question:
When in the Labby phase (2 3 2 3 2 3) did he use it as a normal Labby or took the base bet from the Labby and then did a 4-step Martingale with it (5 10 20 40)? I assume he kept his initial 'Avant Derniere' bet selection, right?

The description is too optimistic.The house edge is denied and it has the shine of a Holy Grail.In spite of this ,the system can give much pleasure to a a player.
The betting scedule is too complicated for a fast player on more than one table. The real player needs simple strategies. The WRangler system is only suited for the ECs. The schedule makes it also impossible to simulate the idea in an Excel program. A manual permenence of about 200 spins should give more insight of the worth of this system. I can not recomment the wranglers system.

Hi Kav. After he lost his 4th bet on the Martingale, the  gentleman did a normal Labby of 2 3 2 3 2 3 and then after he completed the Labby, and won back the 15 units he lost, he continued back to the Martingale using the bet selection 1,2,4,8.  So we play the normal Labby until we win back the 15 units we lost and then go back to the 4 step Martingale. He did keep the same betting strategy as the "Avant Dernier".

I think Mr Dobbelsteen makes a good point. It does give the player much pleasure and I think if we play for the short term and take what the casino gives us we can be successful. Any system played for a long period eventually will fail because of the house edge. I figure if we win small amounts consistently  it adds up over time. The key to being successful is to know when to walk away.

Thanks for the clarification Romn.
I think it is possible to program it on excel.

Yes, it's easy to program as it's just a normal Labby starting with a  232323 line  where you're already -15 when you commence.

I don't like this system as described in the book because you may as well just start off with the Labby in the first place and forget the Martingale part.

Much better is the Barometer method which I posted on here the other day but nobody seems interested in.   :( [size=78%] [/size]
