As it is so simple, I am sure I am not the first to think up this strategy. I am hoping someone more analytical than I can give me some math on it and tell me if it is a worthy strategy for live play. I came up with it playing no commission pai gow (truly no commission, no odd qualifiers to keep it free, just that my casino makes their money on fortune bets and progressive tries). Here it is. Bet 1 unit. If you win Bet 2 units. If you win Bank 1 unit, bet 3 units. If you win Bank 6 units. Series over, start again with 1 unit. If you lose any you start the series over. If you push, repeat the last bet. Had bad hands all day. Made it to the 3 unit bet several times but always got a pai gow in my hand and probably only converted 1 try. Was -18 units after 7 hours of play, but I put that on poor luck. We played pai gow hoping to hit a hot seat promotion where they draw you to pick cash envelopes. My friend got picked for the 2nd week in a row but took that long to get picked. She was down nearly 200$ flat betting 3 units and playing the 1$ progressive. I told her not to play the progressive, instead play the 123 method and if she made it to the third level, she could bet the bonus on those bets only to prevent her from being taxed on the majority of her hands. I like that you stay even after 2 wins and go for a huge score on the 3rd. Am I missing something. Could I modify it to lock up more wins? I like it for pai gow but I think it really has potential in craps taking advantage of hot shooters and locking up wins against the eventual 7 out. Thanks for reading, hope to see a few replies if you have something to share.
